Weekend Adventure


On our weekend trip I brought along some projects to finish up. I opened the truck door and this little doll was peeking at me. 


The dolls got completed and posed for a quick picture.


Two little angora kitties got faces...


We took a hike up to the old abandoned wooden buildings left by prospectors from the 1800's.


I found this funny piece of wood with old green paint and had to take a photo.



wildflowers attract the bees looking for pollen....


you have to watch out for these guys....


After our hike we drove up to Lundy Lake so the guys coud do some fishing. We found one of our favorite spots by the stream and I stitched and read while the boys fished for trout.
Then back to Benton Hot Springs for a soak and another hike up the canyon where we spied the two ravens who guard the canyon. We saw deer, bobcats, quail and sheep on our adventure.
Back home and discovered that Justin had broken his elbow rock climbing with a friend! No more volleyball for a while...the doctor put his arm in a sling, no cast, and one to two months to heal!

Friday is the artists reception for our show at Art From Scrap...5-7pm! I've got the boys and Dennis coming too...

Hope Justin is OK Mary. Love the first photo in your post with the little doll poking her head out of the quilt. Your art has such a sense of whimsy in love. I always feel happy lookin at your creations.
