Motivation in the mail!
I arrived back home from a few days in Aspen to find my yarn for the "August" tapestry had arrived in my absence. Beautiful colors!
You might think that, having been in one of the 'most beautiful places on earth' for the past three days, I would have more to say about it than I do have. But pretty much all I can say about Aspen is that it is not the place for me. It is a very surreal place. However, if you have a pile of money sitting around needing to be spent, two out of three places there have a for sale sign on them. Sotheby's seems to be the realty company to contact, should you be in the market for such a place. A sign of the times, I guess; the For Sale sign. Aspen has been listed as the most expensive property site in the world. I don't know if that is still true, but I don't think I will be moving there at any time, ever.
We took a short hike above the ghost town of Ashcroft on Saturday afternoon, when my husband had time free from his 'conferencing.' As you can see, the fall colors are just barely beginning, up towards the timberline. In about two weeks, the bright green areas will have turned to pure gold.
My goal, now that the yarn has arrived, is to get in at least 1-2 hours of weaving a day. I have lots of other irons in the fire right now (as usual) but I will not let that dissuade me! To the loom...
