A Quick Trip to Yellowstone

Tuesday morning we got up and headed for Yellowstone National Park. Since we moved to Idaho we are only 230 miles away. We arrived in West Yellowstone mid afternoon and drove to Old Faithful which is 30 miles from the West entrance of the park. We had to wait 90 minutes

for the next eruption since it had gone off just before we arrived. There are many other geyers around and LOTS of other people also waiting. While we were waiting we noticed this unusual cloud in the sky. As we were leaving we managed to get a picture of this fellow helping to keep the grass at the lodge under control. The closest motel room was in Bozeman, MT so we headed north. We had a bear run across the road in front of us but he was moving so fast didn't have time to get a picture. I did manage to get some great pictures of Old Faithful going off and here's one of them.

It's Been a Busy Week

It's been a busy week. I moved all the boxes with fabric and yarn out to the quilt room. DH and the grandson put up 3 cabinets for me to put fabric in, so I have started a box at a time to fold it and put it on the shelves. I'm using Bonnie Hunter's sewing room as a guide. So far I'm liking the results. Right now I'm just trying to get them in color families no particular order, then I'll sort each color family into a better order. The picture on the right is almost everything I had in the bedroom in the house. I still have a cutting table and some things stored in the closet to move once I make some room. I'm also thinking that sometime before the end of the year (once the room is in order) I'll probably have another give away to celebrate. I'm thinking the give away might involve you posting a picture of your sewing room so we can have a tour of sorts. This is an early warning in case you want to join in you'll have time to straighten up - or not whichever you prefer. When I'm ready I'll let you all know so stay tuned. IT's going to take me awhile to get through all those boxes.
