This is Salai Taylor, Head Librarian of Alamosa library and my dearest friend.
I spent the day going through my craft projects and decided I am more of a knitter than a quilter these days. I like to quilt small , quick projects like purses, jackets and maybe lap quilts, but no more bigger quilts. It just takes up too much room in our rig and things have to stay out and around too long. So I gathered up most of my fabric and quilt patterns and took them to the local quilt store to give to the quilt guild for charity projects. I also gathered random skeins of yarn I had purchased because it was pretty or soft without a project in mind, and brought them to Fiber Floozies for the charity blankets they make and give away. I must have lightened up the rig by 25 pounds!!! Now I only have yarn for set projects I really want to make - mostly socks - I love knitting socks. Knitting is so easy to do while rolling down the road and is a good conversation starter when sitting outside the rig under the awning.
Today Jim and I will begin to do some preparations to spend a part of the winter in Coffeyville, Kansas, working for Amazon.com in their distribution center. We start Oct. 5th. We're told it gets in the 20-30 degrees in December so we are going to insulate lower cabinets to prevent pipes from freezing - which happened to us last winter in Deming, New Mexico. This morning it 37 degrees, so it is time to get out of here. We will leave Monday, Sept. 15th.
