Just had to show these!

I just had to take pics of our lovely Iris.  The neighbor says they have never been this pretty.  I plan on transplanting them to the new house.  The Yucca are doing very well also.  Don't know how they transplant, so may have to leave them be.  We have decided to terrace the berm, so planting may be a while yet.  Gabby and I are going to plant in the small beds here for now.
I have been working on sewing machines when Gabby is busy or in bed.  We are just overloaded at the present and need to move some of them.  I have three sitting on the longarm table, one on the back patio - all in various stages, some waiting on parts. And I won't even say how many are waiting in line.

Home at last!!

I had a wonderful time in the Jemez Mtns. at the S'mores Quilt Retreat.  Michelle Watts was our teacher.  We did a mystery quilt and most got the top done except for borders.  As this is the 10th year for the S'mores retreats, we got extra goodies from Cindy and Phoebe.
I managed to acquire 2 more machines, a Necchi and a Singer 401.  The Necchi had to stay in Corrales as there was simply no more room in my sis's van.  It is truly amazing how much stuff we need for retreat.  DH got a freebie, Singer touch and swear model 640.  It cleaned up nice, but needs a slide plate and 5 prong cord.
Gabby did very well on the plane trip from Orlando to OKC.  She slept all the way home to Wichita.  We are having a great time with her.  She is such a smart, lively little girl.  It is hard to believe that she turns 4 this month.
