We have our own "home improvement" going on in our shower...
A few weeks ago, as I cleaned our shower, I discovered a small crack in the fiberglass basin... again. Dave has attempted to repair it several times over the past few years. This time the repair meant removing the basin and lower tiles. When this was done, we discovered that there was mold, as I had suspected, below the basin. With the big mess cleaned up and the mold removed, we were ready to move forward. Tile has been selected for the new floor, and the extra tiles we had from the original install have been pulled out.
Between our "regular" jobs and this minor remodel, we were exhausted... so we unplugged from the world and relaxed. We took off for a few days to escape. Since we are self-employed and working right at home (my studio is in the house, and Dave's shop in the yard) we find ourselves in the constant state of "work"... even on the weekends.
Our time away was pleasant... It was the last days of summer and we enjoyed a hike. Wildlife was present all around the campground. Deer could be seen each evening, a skunk scurried across the road not far from our site and we nearly bumped into another on a trail. We waited for a short time, but it was in no hurry to move away allowing us to continue on the trail. We turned around and took the trail the other direction.
This was the view from the top of the mesa that we ascended...
I had plenty of slow stitching time... I'm caught up with my Camping Journal blocks. I am ready to start roundin' the corner of the bottom border.
And read my personal copy of the Susan Magoffin diary of her trip on the Santa Fe Trail.
That's all I have for my Sew & Tell... Vicki from Vicki's Crafts & Quilting shared two fabulous quilts. I am not a huge fan of Halloween, but I know many are... If you happen to be one of the many, you need to follow the link above because she shared the cutest little patchwork jack-o-lantern. She also shared a pumpkin runner that is quite attractive. I personally prefer pumpkin themed items because they are suitable for all of fall, Halloween and into Thanksgiving.
Now it is your turn to Sew & Tell... Join the linky party and then be sure to visit a few other links and leave a kind word or two. Ready? GO!
