Hey, hey, I'm a Monkey!
BB pretending to be a Lion
Is not this Fall just simply BEAUTIFUL! Mr. P and I have been out on walks/hikes in the morning and are loving our time outdoors before the snow flies. Speaking of snow flying, well it is way behind schedule here on the Front Range of the Rockies. Our first snow fall should have happened about 15 days ago. The evenings and nights continue to be too warm for me, I want cold weather to snuggle under quilts at night and wear all sorts of knitted goodness during the day. Besides we really need the moisture here...badly.
Some happenings here at Little House:
:: finished a quilt I started 15-20 years ago. I was hand quilting my reproduction Bubble Gum Pink Quilt( circa:late 1800's), but I used 100% authentic cotton batting (wadding)! How did they do it? Quilting through that batting I needed to pound the needle with a hammer. Hence, why this quilt ended in the back of a closest! I decided-finished is better than authenticity-I machined quilted the Pink Beauty. That cotton batting sure does shrink and pucker up after being washed and dried, an affect I like!
:: Bike Trail pictures heading West. Walked west to beneath the Foothills. That gorgeous horse would not lift his head for me to take a picture. Usually he will let me pet him and always wants a treat, (though NEVER give a horse a treat before asking owner permission).
:: My sweet BB loves people food, will eat about anything offered to her except, formula and baby food. She wants the real deal! Dill pickles, why, yes please!
:: Caitlin took me to this GREAT consignment store in Wyoming and I purchased a hand knit Aran sweater from Killarney Ireland for 13 dollars! It's a size Med. so will be going to my youngest as a gift! It would be waaayyy to warm to wear here, but not in Minnesota. Also found at consignment shop was the monkey Halloween outfit for wee one, cost $5. We are returning to the shop this week!
:: Reading- Finished Louisiana Longshot. Very entertaining, great book to read while walking on the treadmill at 5am. Starting another of hers in the morning.
It's been a full week here at Little House, though the perfect pace we are able to maintain.
