Embrace the Season

It is definitely Fall and although we didn't have much of a summer around here due to fires we are not complaining about the cooler weather.  It is the only thing that will damp down the fire and we are loving the clear air.  G and I decided to get one more camp trip on the book before winterizing.   In this area you have to winterize your trailer unless you plan on going south.  The next couple of month the Quilt Roadies will be traveling by plane :)

I love being on the road because I get so much stitching done!  The last block for my Giving Thanks by Buttermilk Basin  I have just about finished all the basic wool stitching and then a little fun stitching will begin!  Although I won't have it hanging up this November the top will be done!!! Alleluia!!!


We had a great time at the beach and were able to meet up with Grammiecrew and her husband for a little happy hour dinner :)  Plus, I fit in some time to visit Center Diamond Quilt Shop.  We decided to head home a day early because it rained all night and the next day forecasted more, along with thunderstorms.  We're glad to have made the trek over the mountain because we were surprised by snow on the ground!  It looked like it came down with a fierce wind because all the road signs were caked with ice and snow.  We could tell that they had drop lava rock on road for traction.


It is beautiful...but snow??? I am ok to wait another month or so...


So much has challenged our lives and hearts lately...
take some time to sit and stitch...
it is good for the soul.
