Today is our last full day in Santa Fe. My wandering has not been as fruitful as I had hoped, but I have managed to get out and about a little. The ankle brace is working nicely, and I’m on the mend.
On the first part of our trip, we stayed with BigJ’s sister in Colorado. It warmed my heart to see that she still has the little table runner I made her years and years ago. I was a new quilter then, and I remember sewing all of those flying geese!
Linda has a beautiful home. She is a gifted artist, and I thoroughly enjoy seeing her work on display throughout the house. I didn’t think to take any pictures, sorry. I was too busy chattering her ear off!
Just a stay overnight, and then we were wandering our way to New Mexico. The drive started out overcast with a tiny bit of snow, and some odd things to see. This made us both chuckle.
Soon we were wandering under sunny skies along an open range. The horses weren’t the least bit bothered by us going by, but we were quite amused by them.
Farther down the road, we stopped to watch some rafters on the Rio Grande. I have to admit, this is something I’ve always thought would be fun, although I’d probably chicken out if the opportunity came up. Hehe.
We made a quick stop in Taos and did a little bit of shopping, then wandered our way to Santa Fe. Once we settled into our casa, we walked downtown for dinner. The air here is redolent with the smell of springtime florals. The lilacs are just beginning to bloom. It’s just lovely!
Finally, Sunday afternoon our wandering took us to Santa Fe Quilting. Since I was hobbling a bit, I focused on getting around and didn’t take any pictures. I did, however, pick up some supplies for Sashiko and have been stitching on that.
Of course I picked up some fabric and a pattern too. It is a very nice shop, the owner was so friendly and willing to help. It’s worth a visit if you are in Santa Fe!
Tomorrow we begin wandering home, but there will be quilt shop stops along the way, cranky ankle or no!
Enjoy your day, friends!
