I love it;) It is my rendition of the homes out here in the rural part of the countryside. The skies are bluer here than anywhere I have been in the states. The houses are very organic looking...not all the wood is straight, the rooms are added on as the family grows, and they don't paint the adobe. There is not always green here, but in the spring there is a purple flower that I love, represented here in the quilt. As a sign of hospitality, families often hang a ristara by the front door. Chilie season here is an event, with roasters at all the grocery stores and people lined up around the block to get their yearly stock of fresh roasted chilie;) The air takes a fiery, unique smell that can only be found here once a year. Good stuff;) I even embroidered in the wind we are famous for that occurs each spring;)
I sent a quilt top of mine to a blogger friend that did a huge favor for me as a thank you gift. She got in touch with me a couple of days ago asking if I would mind if she donated it to a charity auction. I said go for it. This is what she did with it quilting wise...
She does amazing work with her long arm quilting machine!! I am glad it is going to a worthy cause;) Stop by her blog spot to see some of the other fun, funky, and creative work she does;) I always look forward to seeing what she comes up with next;)
As for the boy....he is doing well. Went to the doctor last Friday and got to see what he did to his arm via an xray. It's a mess to say the least. He will be in an arm brace for the next few months, with the doctor demanding no use of it for the duration. If all goes well, he will mend and we won't have to do any more work on it. If it doesn't, we are looking at more surgery and bone work. Keep your fingers crossed. As for adjusting the homefront from being a couple to a family, I think things are going pretty smoothly so far. I got news from my mom that she needs to move in with us soon. She keeps falling and hurting herself. Nothing serious yet, but it's that time. We are looking at having her with us by the end of June this year. I am just glad that she has us to come to.
Anyway, I am going to go put my feet up, pour a glass of wine, and play some video games. The boys are out for the afternoon, so I had better take advantage of the "mom" time;)
