June 26, 2015
Circle the Wagons was hopping this morning due to our first Craft Show. Had a nice turnout for our first one. The next Craft Show/Flea Market/Bake Sale will be held on Friday, July 24 from 9-1. Only $10 for a table. Let me know if you are interested. Denny and Dale built a Corn in the Hole game. Just come in the office to get the bean bags.
We are full this weekend with campers from all over the country and Canada. We also have a group from New Mexico who are staying with us for 5 days. I asked them what they have enjoyed most and they said the Cog Railway going up to Pikes Peak. Only $37 per person. Colorado Springs is a nice day trip from La Veta.
I cannot believe that July is just a few days away. As of now we are full over the 4th of July. It is a great time to be in La Veta/Cuchara with their hometown parades even if you can just come in for the day. Parade times are 11 am for Cuchara and 2 pm for La Veta.
I do have my 2016 Calendar so if you want to be here for the 4th next year, please give me a call.
Update on Greenhouse garden. Dale installed a sprinkler system with a timer to cool things off a couple of times a day. We have several tomatoes showing up and should have some jalapeno popping out soon.
I've updated the upcoming events. The Fort Francisco Museum has a free event every Saturday. Please check out their website to see what might interest you. www.franciscofort.org
1. I have a block of the month project that will continue for 2 seasons. Even if you aren't a quilter, the blocks are small and I have tons of fabric that can be used for the blocks. There will be a sewing afternoon every week.
2. Carol Naylor has offered to come down from Colorado Springs and teach her Watercolor/Batik painting. It is so much fun and you will have a painting of your own at the end of the day. She will do this once a month for the summer. Next class is July 20 at 9 am.
3. Balance and Strengthening exercises will begin on Thursday, July 2 at 9 am. Sara Hoffman has generously offered to do this class. The classes will be one day a week.
4. We will have a quilt retreat the 2nd weekend of October beginning at noon on that Friday and through Sunday. More info to come.
