Closer to home

Hello everyone.  I'm slowly making my way home after visiting my dear family.  I hopped off the train this morning to visit Denver for a day and will hop on the next one tomorrow to continue on.  Denver is a wonderful place for walking.  The sun was out and the temperature was perfect.  A new travel center is being built and I think it will be quite something...a real hub for buses and trains.  So here are a few impressions...the old grand station which is being renovated:

A pattern where the sidewalk crosses the tracks:

Some coal cars waiting to go somewhere:

Crocheted flowers on the fence separating the sidewalk from the construction.  This is just a tiny portion of the display. 

Here is the sleeve of my old jacket that I "boro-ed"  a la Jude:

Some New Jersey azalea blossoms, just beginning to assert themselves.  It was cold and rainy almost the entire visit, but then Easter was a beautiful day, maybe even a little too suddenly warm, but how glad we were for the sunshine.

That's all for now.  Time for bed.


  1. Hello Suzanna! I was wondering yesterday should I comment & ask where you have been - or would that be a bit pushy - and here you are back with a glimpse of life round your way. Lovely!

  2. Hi's so good to hear from you...pretty soon I'll be home and able to catch up with news...thanks a lot for writing!

  3. Fence with flowers!
    Now, were those flowers crocheted
    into the fence? silly question i guess...
    Love the idea!

  4. Hi Cristina...good question! I should've looked more closely...I think they were probably sewn on though...after being made somewhere was about 75' of fence and the flowers were consistent, as though it had been planned really perked up the construction site. I wish I'd taken a photo of the whole fence, but alas...

  5. Wow...I'm dreaming about that fence!

  6. Hi Deb, I thought you might like that!

  7. Just love the boro sleeve Suzanna. I bet many heads turned to look at them! How wonderful to turned jacket to boro! Hugs Nat

  8. Hi Nat, thanks! I really love wearing it, and plan to continue on in this vein with the rest of my wardrobe...:) Probably slowly...
