Changing Seasons

 Snowy outside...
Cozy inside!

We helped with my folks' summer migration to their Wyoming home this weekend. It's not quite summer there yet, ended up with 4" of snow Friday evening.  The picture outside was taken when it was just getting started.  Mom got a fire going and soon it was warm and welcoming in her log home. 

P.S. Mom's home is going on the market... It's about a 4 thou square foot log home on the golf course in beautiful Star Valley.

Have a happy weekend.

Blue tiles

A quilt for my Mom.
Fun to make, difficult to photograph!
I tried indoors light and outdoors... and could not capture the bright turquoise colors in it.

Cathedral State Park - Nevada

We traveled West and South thru Nevada on our way to visit family in St George, Utah. Our first night was spent here - at Cathedral State Park.
There were great formations and cliffs and slot canyons.
Inside the slot canyons was cool temps and groovy textures!
Below are my wonderful adventure dogs.

This was just wide enough to walk thru. Loved it.

The park was a great place to spend a night and do some exploring!

Just a Simple Quilt

This was an afternoon quilt - so very simple and small. Just a row of flags on a colorful striped fabric, and Winnie the Pooh on the back. The back fabric is a cotton corduroy with the super thin pile, it is soft.

It's a baby boy quilt. My son has a friend who's wife is expecting in a week or two...

BTW - I am still practicing on the quilting machine frame; I am getting my stitches more consistently even. The stitch regulator that would do that for me is over $500.... so I will keep practicing. :)
