The house is coming along--I will share a few design elements with you. One thing I am most pleased about is the red windows. I love red. And I love windows. So I thought I should just combine them.
When we first ordered them, I think the builder was a little concerned. (But trust me, this is going to be great design at work here!) I was so anxious waiting for the windows to come. Then one day we went by the job site, and what did we find stacked up in the garage?
Today when I went by, (this is a daily occurrence--as if seeing it every day would make it go faster) they were adding the exterior siding. NOW the windows really POP! They look just like I imagined them!
This weekend was our annual family quilt retreat. It was the 15th year of Family Pieces.
We arrived at the cabin with a suburban FULL of quilting stuff.
Our theme this year was musical--"Give Piece A Chance." We were each given a record with all the music tracks from the whole retreat. It was fabulous! (Thanks to the St. George limb of our family tree who were in charge this year.)
Note: For those of you who were born after 1970, audio tracks are embedded in the grooves of the large black vinyl disk to be played back later on a device called a phonograph. This enables the user to HEAR the music.
We even had a lip-sync performance from every group of quilters from each family or area. Complete with over-the-top costumes! It was a hilarious night and a great break from the sewing machines. I will share more of the retreat with you later this week.
Well, have a great day and "give piece a chance!"
