A trip "home"

I just returned from a week in Colorado.
Even though we have lived around the world -
Colorado, Alaska, Ohio, Germany, Texas, Virginia and Kansas.
Colorado will always be home.
I step into that crisp, clean mountain air, take a deep breath, and instantly know I'm home.
Give me a hammock, a pine tree, some sunshine, a little breeze - ahhhh!
We spent the week looking at houses and will make an offer on one this week.
This will be my backyard!


I also spent the week loving these sweet faces:

Back to my sewing...
I'm excited to finish my Tokyo Subway Map top this week!
The blocks are all trimmed and ready to be sewn together.
What a fun quilt-along. Thanks to Elizabeth at Oh, Fransson!

Don't forget to check out Fabric Tuesday!

  9. You can't imagine how excited I am that I might actually live in the same state as you for the first time in 10 years!! We miss you Nana! Hurry home!! BTW, the quilt looks amazing! Can't wait to snuggle under it this winter with some nice warm cider!

  10. I didn't know you guys were moving back to CO! I love the quilt, as well, I've actually been on the Tokyo subway and I think a quilt is a great idea!!
