This is my Labor Day weekend project.
I plan to teach it as an introduction to quilt piecing class this fall. My schedule will not permit a full beginning class until 2012. I have opted to make it a square instead of the long runner seen in the photo.
Advent calendars were always one of my kids' favorites.
It felt good on Friday to hit the trails again. Only 31 days until we leave for the 13,000 ft mountains of Peru. I was surprised how winded I got after being away for less than 2 weeks. We will head to Ouray this next week to get even higher in hopes of building up some excess red blood cells. I'll need all I can get!
While hiking, I found yet another member of the Gentian family that I will add to my Wildflower page. I captured a picture of the Fringed Gentian in full bloom.
It is now my second favorite wildflower after the Fairy Slipper Orchid!
The texture of this little mushroom enticed me to play with my macro lens.
And some early fall color...
I am using the new blogger interface. Uploading photos seems to take forever, but the rest of it is user friendly and a lot cleaner looking from a graphic design standpoint. Haven't figured out how to access my pages though...may have to switch back in order to add to my wildflower pages.
Hope everyone is having a safe and enjoyable Labor Day weekend!
