Time Flies

14,264 Elevation - Arapahoe National Forest
Time flies when you are having fun!

We have had a wonderful summer filled with company - and adventure.

There was fabric study, quilts, great food, road trips and a little mountain riding...not all with the same groups.

This is the Mount Evans summit 2014 picture.
I am sorry to say I don't bike, I drive the support car and take pictures.  This year we hosted 5 riders - the most enthusiastic being our son.  Rumor has it 2015 is already being planned.

We did see more wild life this year.  The mountain goats, big horn sheep and marmots were out.  The sheep and goats can make the roads even more dangerous.

Velma was a little shy with all the extra attention

Now that company is gone we are changing gears.  I plan to get back to more stitching and more regular blog posts.  I have some new projects to show you.
I missed posting the winner of the drawing for the Denver Art Museum book, "First Glance - Second Look" exhibit companion guide.  So sorry!

Congratulations Janet from Mrs. Sew N Sew - please contact me with your address.

Have a great week!


  1. What a great shot, but I am not up to peddling a bike that far up a mountain, lol.


  2. Love that photo--I'm assuming that is your son?
    Cute shot of Velma. : )

  3. Sounds like a lot of fun! Looking forward to reading about your new projects. Congrats to Janet! And love the photos!

  4. Lucky Janet!
    Sounds like you've had a lot fun. Looking forward to catching up on your projects!

  5. I'd be in the support crew too Dawn! - but such wonderful scenery would be inspirational. Well done to your son - great photo :) Looking forward to your new projects.

  6. Every year, we see mountain bike riders on the Blue Ridge Parkway. I just can't imagine the energy and muscle it takes to peddle up a mountain.

  7. What a great picture - such beautiful scenery. I'm with you - I could drive the support car (and maybe find some fun stops along the way). Velma is so cute, peeking out from your quilt. And the quilt doesn't look bad either!

  8. I know all about those support crews. We are key! Sounds like it was another fun adventure with some awesome athletes. Love the picture of peekaboo Velma.

  9. I hope nobody sits on the sneaky kitty by mistake

  10. I love summer but am getting closer to wanting to be back int he groove, with more of a schedule.
    The Mtn biking looks fantastic!!
