Sending Love to Canada

Sending love, hugs, and heartfelt sympathy to Canada.  I was horrified to hear about the terrible, violent attack in Ottawa.  My thoughts are with everyone, especially the loved ones of the soldier who was killed today.

May peace return to your fair city soon.

Of Aspens and Quilt Shows

The aspens are changing colors in the mountains, and cooler nights have arrived.

Mr. SBQ's parents were in town last week and we did all the tourist things--Georgia O'Keefe museum, history museum, art museum, Indian art museum, Taos, Acoma pueblo, shopping on the plaza, eating at great restaurants, looking at scenery, and strolling along Canyon Road.   It was a busy 5 days LOL!

Yesterday was my day off and we actually had a proper overcast-and-rainy day in Santa Fe.  I ventured out to the Quilt Fiesta quilt show held by the local quilt guild.  It was a small show with about a dozen vendors (which is great because I'm on a no-buy at least until my trip to Michigan later this month.) Here are a few of the quilts that caught my eye from the show. 

It was great to do something "quilty" for a change.

And now I'm all inspired to work on a new project or two :)

And of course, no post is complete without a cat photo.  Stella was snuggled on the couch among the quilts. Such is the life.

Happy October!

Or as I like to call it "Extra Hugs for Black Cats Month"

Remy was caught in a late morning sunbeam.  I don't think he moved for a full 5 minutes.
