Fresh Air!

Here's  my view from the rock I'm perched on.  Ahhh....the air is so fresh and clean, not to mention COOL, here in Colorado where I'm vacationing.  Every morning this week, I've been privileged to sit and meditate with this gorgeous view right outside the cabin door. Here's what I see if I look back.......
Mr. Lollyquiltz is enjoying his perch on the little cabin deck. I wish that we could stay forever!

We've made lots of hummingbird friends this week.  One rascal, called a Rufus hummingbird, has a game of dive bombing us as we sit on the deck. He apparently thinks that the feeder is meant only for him.  He's so fast that I can't get a good picture, but trust me, he is the brightest orange/red bird I've ever seen...almost neon!  This Ruby-throated hummingbird is beautiful too.
Lest you think I would go on vacation and not think about quilting, I'll show you what I'm working on when not hiking or sightseeing. My collection of dotty hexagons is growing!
It's an 11 hour trip home to Missouri so there will be a lot more of these babies by the time I arrive! I'm making two of each fabric...all spots with a sprinkling of stripes and checks. I've cut down my original thoughts on quilt size and have decided to make a tablecloth for my breakfast table.  I figure I need around 400 hexies....I've got a ways to go!
In the meantime, I'm going to take a walk down the road for another look at this darling cabin.  It's so, so cute and situated right next to the river. If I had a lot of money, I'd leave a note on the door saying that I would sure like to buy it! Look, they've already chopped all their wood for winter...............
                                           I'd never have to leave!!!!


  1. wow! what a wonderful haven, I don't think I'd want to leave either! x

  2. It looks like heaven! I used to live in Colorado (and hated to leave) - can you tell me where this is located?

  3. Somehow hexies, fresh air, and a cute little cabin just seem to go together!
