Colorado Mountains

A quick week in the mountains for us began at Colorado Boy Brewery, a cool glass of Porter on cask and a Rustica Pizza on order!
Spending a few days this week with my friend Gale, piecing on my DSM while she works at the longarm.
 This is a very modern quilt and had to be quilted in straight lines, a tedious task requiring much measuring, chalking and then ruler work! I think the chalking alone took about two hours.
The 25 Birthday Girl blocks for Celtic Solstice are all done and I will be putting the top together on Thursday when I get back up the mountain and have space to lay out the design.
 I discovered that I was short two of the little corner blocks but scavenged two HST's from an extra whirligig, and cut 4 neutral and two blue triangles from Gale's scraps to complete that final block.
 This chick keeps company with Gale, such a cute bird and a great way to keep scissors and tape measure handy don't you think? I want one! And yes, this is the same place that I got locked in the chicken coop, I suspect that someone here has a chicken fetish!
The two corgis that also keep Gale company, Gidget in front and Izzie in back.  Bossy girls they are too!
