And, I'm back! I hope to come back to this space a couple times a week now that I have my other blog moving along nicely.

I had driven past this park many times, not knowing that it was even a park. I thought that it was some sort of promotional display for one of the museums in the area. Well, one day we happened to park across the street from it during a visit to the Milwaukee Art Museum. We decided to stop and explore... and we were pleasantly surprised!
The flags (?) make a rustling noise in the wind, like leaves on tall trees in a very large forest. They sparkle and wink in the sunlight and you can turn them with wheels at the bottom of the poles.
We were really surprised to find that the benches had drumsticks tied to them! They are musical benches!
And the "sculpture" in the middle has a sign on it to drop in pebbles. The pebbles make music on their way down.
Probably one of the coolest parks we've ever visited!

To be mailed next week! The wonderful fabric selection is thanks to Cynthia at fabricworm. I told her I was making a block for the aqua/red charity quilt group and asked her to pick some fabrics that would look good together. I'm very pleased with what she sent me! I worked the block from Jacquie's Wonky Log Cabin tutorial and it was so much fun! Off to Kansas City it goes!
