Where have they gone???

The pictures of tatting I took while on vacation??  I can only find the one of green thread on a red button that I already posted about, all of the other ones are gone! What a bummer!

Taking a suggestion from Kathy I've been making zipper pulls instead of hair clips.  Each one of of these blue ones has some form of mistake so they are mine, but I've been trying out different ideas to see what works, what doesn't work and if I like the results or not. I had a pink one that I gave away to a friend and a green one that I put on my coat zipper.   I had taken pictures of them while on vacation with my phone so didn't worry about taking one with my camera.  They should still be on my phone but I can't find them anywhere:(

 I also forgot to take a picture of these at home before I came to work.  It's been interesting trying to find a way to get a good picture that doesn't have my shadow in it.   You can see how they don't hang very well.  I'm still trying to figure out what I need to do to fix that.

We are slowly getting back into the swing of normal days since returning from our vacation, but it is hard.  We had such a great time it was very hard coming back. I'm still going through the pictures trying to label a few and pick out some to print.  

On Wednesday, September 12, we decided to go over Weston Pass because it is an easy pass and it was misting and raining that day.  We aren't that skilled at driving in the mountains on rough roads so thought we should do something that wasn't too challenging.  In trail books this pass is rated about a 1 or 2 for difficulty but a 10 for the scenery.  

We saw a lot of color on our drive up through the mountains. 

The rain turned to snow as we got to the top. It was great!

As we came down the other side it turned back to a light rain. It was a wonderful drive. Here's some information on Weston Pass if you are interested. 

We went over starting on the Fairplay side so ended up close to Leadville.  We went on in and had lunch there, at Callaways Restaurant in the Delaware Hotel. We enjoyed a great lunch then did a little shopping.  We also drove a little ways out of town to see some of the mines.  We could see it had snowed enough in the higher elevations that the mountains tops now had a covering of snow. 

I have no idea which mountain this is, but it was beautiful.

Today for Tatting Tea Tuesday I sipped hot tea and looked through pictures instead of tatting.  I'm still hoping to get a few minutes of tatting in but it may have to wait until tomorrow. 

"Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather."
John Ruskin
