The Big Move!

I am sorry I have been away from my blog for so long we have been in transition over the last month and a half. It all started on July 2nd when our household goods were picked up. We were leaving the South, headed to live in the mountains of Colorado. On our way we had a month long adventure of visiting family and friends.
We also had a very special member of our family along for the fun. Celine our exchange student from 08/09 came along for the fun. This was a great way for her to see a lot of the USA while on her summer break from school.

Our first stop was SC to see good friends!!

We made some important fabric related stops along the way.

We delivered a quilt to my oldest niece.

It is a quilt to commemorate her visit to Europe in 2007

Her is my lovely niece being so gracious by letting me take her picture with the quilt. She immediately snuggled up with it and made good use of it. That is why I make quilts to be cherished and used. 

The cousins in a heap after a long day of playing.

Our next stop was the St Louis Arch. This is the tiny pod to the top for the great views. 

Then we were finally in my home state KANSAS!! WooHoo!!
We spent three weeks here but I was so busy I took very few pictures. 

My oldest and I rode horses two days in a row.

KS is so pretty!

I love to ride horses almost as much as my oldest!

We went to Silver Dollar City one weekend. The second row has part of our crew.

Daddy rode rides with our youngest. 

We celebrated 3 birthdays while we were home in KS. This is our youngest turning 5! Daddy was Captain Hook and she was a warrior Tinker Bell!!

Finally a little over a month after leaving Georgia we found a new home to make memories in while we are in CO. The trip getting here was so much fun but I am excited to settle in and get some quilting done. 
My Gammill Statler Stitcher arrives on Monday. I am very excited. I already have some tops to load when it arrives. My Mum and I have visited two quilt guilds already and have a few more on our list. I am looking forward to getting involved in the local area and growing our business and hopefully our family.
