An Evolving Dream

One of the many items to catch up on was the new construction.  Not only was a $35 credit at the Stitchin' Post burning a hole in my quilting dream but, we were dying to see if anything else had been done.  Alleluia!!! They had poured and cured the foundation!  With that part set in we could walk around and visualize exactly what the view was going to be like and from where.  We decided we were going to drop a dime on outdoor living room furniture because our little patio in the back has a full view of the 3 Sisters!!!!  We are going to eat all our meals out there, bundled in ski gear in the winter and shorts in the  As soon as we pulled up to take photos a new neighbor came over and introduced himself.  He is waiting for his build to start and was excited to see ours start to go up. Then the construction foreman happened to drive up and we got the lo down on what was next.  Tomorrow plumbing and electrical lines go in, followed by subflooring.  On Tuesday a city inspection and Wednesday framing starts!!!

I walked around and around the property...and then I walked around and around the Stitchin Post...what to spend my $35 credit on....hummm?  I decided on these 4 threads and 2 packs of needles....yummy colors.  I was soooo tempted to sign up for classes after seeing all the class displays but I resisted since this fall and winter are going to be busy.

But just so I don't suffer alone I took lots of slides in the shop and of all the class displays.  Maybe some of you will be able to take the classes...or...maybe you will be whining like me....
