blue skies

it has taken a bit of doing ... and far more time than it prolly should have ... but i think that Mr. Husker's sky is gonna be okay ... i added lightning over Long's Peak and some pinwheels for the crazy weather that is found on any Rocky Mountain top ... Auntia suggested a sun made with the shooting star block from Amazingly Simple Star Quilts ... which was, by the way, not amazingly simple ... i am grateful that i don't have to make an entire quilt of those stars ... i pieced the sun from yellow fairie frost and a red scrap from the dragonheart kaleidoscope quilt that i made for a dear friend ... now i gotta get busy on trees and a lake...
...this morning my little piggy Gumdrop danced at a festival in thornton ... look at those gorgeous brown eyes ... she can do a mean coffee grinder and has no problem performing hip hop-itude...
...240 dancers (ranging in age from 2 to 60-something) danced their hearts out ... it was a great show ... and the weather couldn't have been better - the cool early morning warmed into a beautiful sunny day...

...Gumdop will be graduating from kindergarten in eleven days and celebrating her sixth birthday in june ... i'm making cupcake totes to hold party favors for her birthday guests ... and Auntia is going to frost cupcakes with the skills that she is learning in her cake decorating class...

...we went to see X-Men Origins: Wolverine yesterday ... omigawd! Hugh Jackman is a hottie ... and when he jumps off the waterfall - omigawd!
