Done!  Let me know if I didn't do it right.

And I will continue to put the AZ retreat on my list of priorities!  DH and family know that too!!!

Oh (((Ellen)))...  yesterday must have been really hard.  I hope you woke today with joy in your heart and a song in your head.  There is much joy you are organizing to bring to Denise's family with these quilts.

I am feeling better tonight!  I got the bridesmaids dress hemmed for my daughter and that was adding to my stress.  It still needs a few tacks to hold layers together, but I can do that one evening.

I could have used Ami!   Lol.   It was 3 layers and I haven’t done a rolled hem in about 25 years.  I was scared to start….

I finally finished a baby for our CO Builder's new son.  It's been hot here making the garage nearly 120 degrees on the hottest days.   And with the fires in northern CA threatening Lake Tahoe the air quality has been very poor.  But I wanted to get the top quilted and finished so I can get it to them before Aiden is in high school!  I just did a simple all over loops and swirls design and it's finished and mailed to them!  We had hoped to have a trip planned to go back to CO to do some things but are still awaiting one deliverable before we buy tickets.  Here's a picture:  

If someone can turn these right side up please do or tell me how to do so.  Thanks.

Wow, that was a big project.  I would have been afraid to begin also!  Be sure to share a picture.

 

Well wish I could have been there to help. I do love working on clothes so it would have been fun. You will have to share a photo of her all dressed up on the special day. Weddings are such joyful occasions.

Next time you are going to Ft Collins let me know and we will try to get together and do a little shop hop. We will be in New Mexico for a few days the early part of October so hopefully you will not be there while we are gone. We have been slowly sogging thru the rest of our home improvements in our house. The kitchen and last bathroom were painted this trip, some bathroom fans and a few other odds and ends were done by our handyman. I got the kitchen table stripped, sanded and refinished. What a transformation. It had a finish over the wood so you could not see the wood and we bought it for our new kitchen in the house we moved into up in Washington over 24 years ago. It is great quality oak and looks amazing now with a beautiful golden hue to showcase the beautiful wood.

We are driving back to Colorado tomorrow at O dark 30.............dh likes to get up way to early so I just have to get up before I am ready to and just get in the car. Usually the sun comes up once we are well underway.

I chucled to myself. Friend who invited me to a local retreat suggested I prep something to work on. Ha, she has no idea, I am the queen of prep!  All those years flying to AZ I know exactly how to prep projects.

Have a great and safe trip back to CO.  Sounds like you did much more work at your home in NM.  It's winding down though...  it has to at some point.  Your table sounds stunning to have the luster of the original oak refinished one again.  I hope you can enjoy that for a long time.  

I will let you know when we get back.  We are kind of longing to get away from the craziness and poor air quality in CA right now.  AND, we have to hear about or get junk mail about this Gov Newsome recall election.  I know how my ballot will be marked so I just want all the "stuff" to STOP already.  The petition to recall was overwhelmingly signed so people seem to know how they want to proceed to let's just do this and be DONE.

Sorry...  end of rant...

We will be traveling to ATL 9/30 to 10/5 to see DJ for Family Weekend (the 1st chance since he's been attending) so we are looking forward to that.  DJ even seems to be excited we are coming and staying a couple of extra days.  We are still waiting word from CO on a couple of outstanding items.  When we get that status then we can plan our dates to FtCo so I can book tickets and let you know.  

 

We are getting the smoke from California both in Colorado and New Mexico. Some days it is really bad and you can't see the mountains, sometimes not real bad. I can imagine how bad it must be where you are.

We are keeping an eye on the recall too.
