A pileated woodpecker is a larger creature than I expected. this one startled me, flying across the road in front of the car as I was going up to ride. I thought it was a crow, except it had that bright red flash on the head.
I was extremely productive today: I cut out another 60 circles, which should take me to the end of the summer. I also finished a bolt of interfacing I was using, that I bought at the beginning of 2010. So 20 yards of 22" interfacing went about 30 months. I've found if I don't have blanks ready to go, it is harder to get organized to make the daily thing. So a stack of them makes me feel rich, and well prepared.
