with my best friend and husband.
Our biggest adventure involved running into a little trouble while driving on a lonely 4-wheel drive road...
And because the tool to lower the spare tire broke off while we were using it,we had to be rescued by these angels...
who stopped and used their knowledge and many tools to keep us from spending the night in our car on the side of a mountain! I'm kidding about the overnight thing. Sort of.
The three hours we were stranded seemed a lot longer! It was a major event, apparently, as 16 people and one dog tried to figure out how to get the tire changed! We will never forget the kindness of this 4-Wheel Club from Nevada and California!
Even though I was very prepared to do some sewing while lounging in our cabin, this is the only thing that I have to show for my down time!
Oh well, I came home to find that my Farmer's Wife quilt had been beautifully re-quilted and was waiting for me to pick it up! The quilting in the white background is now as gorgeous as that on the blocks and I am so happy that I took the time to un-pick all of those little stitches! You can see the original background quilting and read about the whole "shebang" here. Now to decide on a binding.
Since I took a year's worth of photographs in Colorado, you can be sure that you'll be seeing more of them in my 365 Photo Challenge posts for weeks to come. You were warned!
