Greetings from sunny Colorado.    Yesterday our internet was on and off throughout the day, so between errands and having friends over to share our trip with-there just wasn't an opportunity to blog.  The day started out nicely, clear skies and having a walk with my bff Kam and her girl Lexie.  Hunter was thrilled; it has been almost a month or so since we had walked together.  By the afternoon the monsoon showers had started, but that didn't interfere with our friends visit.  Last night our girl and her family came over; the kiddos watched Disney while the adults played cards.  Have to say, I started out in last place but ended up winning our game. It was so fun; hasn't happened enough this summer!!!
 Today I have already walked Hunter, caught up with a dear friend and am getting ready to go to the pool to meet my girl and her five.  This afternoon I'm going over to see my new neighbor, talk quilting and have some ice-tea.  I'm really looking forward to that. Here are the fat quarters I got last week-though in these pics they look brighter than they are.  The are historical/civil war fabrics in muted tones.  I was so drawn to them and I should have bought the second bundle of matching fabrics. I'm actually thinking about going back down the road to get them.

This looks like a royal blue but is really a deep navy.  I'm planning on shopping with my quilting/travel/best friend when we are in Ca., for more blues and browns/neutrals. However, I may be going to some quilt stores with my new neighbor.  There is also a great quilt show in Longmont in August, so I'll probably hit that too.
Having finished my last quilt and knowing I won't start the next one until after our friends visit is over, it is hard in the evenings not to work on a project.  I've actually got so many books on my IPad, that I'm reading while we watch t.v. 
I hope you have a great Tuesday and enjoy whatever life brings your way.


  1. Good morning! We haven't played any cards since my parents passed away. We both miss it. We used to play almost every Friday night with them for a few years. Enjoyed the time spent with them and the cards itself. I am loving the Civil War fabrics....I LOVE my Civil War quilt. I am soo drawn to those fabrics. Sounds like a good day ahead of you. Enjoy it, and enjoy your week!

  3. Sounds like a great day! I love the Civil War reproduction fabrics!!! I can't wait to see what you make out of them!

  4. How pretty the fabric looks and I cant wait to see what your create from it!

  5. We are really wanting to go for a walk too, but it is so hot here. Early morning and late evening are our best shots, but even then the humidity is very high.

    Mom says she really needs to take up her dream and learn how to quilt. Maybe a good project for her for the winter.
