Power Outage

We had a power outage for about 5 hours one day and here's what happens when you can't use your computer or your sewing machine.

 

You sit by the window and make a lot of progress on your knitting.

Jacob's Ladder

Here is the next quilt in my "Quilts to be Quilted" stash.  It's Jacob's Ladder and it was a block of the month from The Quilt Barn, a quilt shop in New Jersey that is long since gone.

My notes show that I started this in 1999.  Definitely time to get it done.  It needs borders before I start the quilting so that is next on my agenda.

Azalea Eater

Don't be looking at me all innocent like that.

I saw you eating my azalea bush right up next to the house.

The Last Day

On our last day of hiking, we went to see the dinosaur footprints at Twenty Mile Wash.   

After a climb to the top, a sauropod footprint.  They were hard to see at first, but after we learned what we were looking for, we found quite a few.

 

And where there are sauropods, there are things that want to eat them.

Big things.  That's Stephen's hand for reference.  Our lunch was at Devil's Garden, just a few miles up the road.

 

Those rocks remind me of giant molars.  After lunch we headed to a place where we would see pictographs and petroglyphs.  We started up the trail, but it seemed to me to be a more difficult hike than Observation Point and I decided to go back down the trail to the river, take off my shoes, and cool my feet.

 My camera went with Keith who is much braver than I am and he took a few pictures for me.

 Southern Utah is really an amazing place.  I hope to visit again sometime.

Shamrock Garden

I have pulled out my next needlepoint and put in a few stitches.  It was a class from the Shenandoah Needlepoint Guild that I started in July of 2015.

 

It's been patiently waiting its turn and I am happy to be working on it again.
