Joan's Musings

Thursday, a good day, JD and I did some shopping for new counter top. We got an estimate from Home Depot and an estimate from Don's Custom Counter in Longmont, 711 1st Ave 303 772 5874. JD wants to apply 3000.00 to the cost. We can get a stilstone top for right around $3000.00, but of course it isn't the one we like the most. To get the one we really like it will cost $1700.00 more. We are thinking about it, I'm afraid if I don't go with the one we really like we will be sorry. $4700.00 is a lot for counter tops though. We had a nice day together, came home and had ham salad sandwiches for supper.

I will be going to the Mancuso Quilt show with three ladies from Ft.Collins, Janet Pugh, Maxine Carlson, and Landreth Hamil. I'm excited about that but I need to be in FC by 8:15--ugh.

By the way the estimate from Don's will cost about $700.00 more than Home Depot.

Didn't get to work on Delta Dawn today.

A foggy Monday, and it hasn't gotten out of the 30's all day. Much news re: the Swine Flu, there are 40 cases in the US so far, no deaths related to any of the cases.

I worked on Delta Dawn for quite awhile today, I'm doing some additional thread painting, redoing areas that were not up to my satisfaction, will continue with more of the same this evening (that is if I can stay awake, I didn't sleep much at all last night).

Sally called and the soccer games for Jess and Mel in Laramie are cancelled due to weather, so will not be going to Laramie tomorrow.

4/24, continue handstitching the binding, seems like I spend very little time on it, probably because this not one of my favorite parts of putting the piece together, maybe tomorrow.
Another beautiful day, out 3rd day of walking

Made a batch of refrigerator potato bread, made a pan of sweet rolls for Bunky and Nell our neighbors. Spent most of the morning in the kitchen, chocolate pie, and granola as well as the bread.

I sat out in the sun for about 20 minutes, trying to get a little color on my weary legs and arms.

Stopped in Loveland yesterday after my dental appt. for cleaning, had a hair cut (bad job). Went clothes shopping, think I'm ready for summer.

I didn't get the picture posted of Delta Dawn, I decided to wait until it is finished. I did the sewing of the cording and will now attach the binding. I have a few touch up places and then I will take a picture and post it.

Delta Dawn

Joan's Musings

I continue to work on "Delta Dawn", it has been a long process and I will be glad when it is finished. I cut the binding today, it is a bias binding since the bottom of the wall hanging is uneven(curved). I have made all of the surreal figures over once again and I am happy with the way they have turned out. I also worked on the sun today, it is looking good.

We are having snow, snow snow, at least 3' this evening so far, and it is supposed to continue into tomorrow. We are unable to get out, our cars are nearly buried. JD went out to try moving snow with the 4 wheeler this morning with no luck, the snow is just too deep. Denver is supposed to have 76 degrees by Wednesday, that means in the middle 60's here, hopefully most of it will melt, if not we will have to hire someone with big equipment to come plow us out.

I will post a picture of "Delta Dawn" tomorrow.
