I love visiting Utah.
My boys get to go skiing, which they love.
It is beautiful: snowy mountains, spring trees in bloom in the valley (it still looks like the dead of winter back home)
My family is here: I spent the weekend on a mini sewing “retreat” with my mom and sister,
I got to sew on that cute little white featherweight there in the front!
My brothers came to town to see me, too. I am so blessed to have great relationships with my siblings.
My younger brother brings his dog, sweet Dusty,
Dusty is a dog who quilts, just like my Cleo at home. Here he is trying out my project. This purple is a new color for me…and I love it! more on this later.
Salt Lake City has really fabulous quilt shops! Seriously, my stash would be about three times its size if I lived here. If you are ever in town, you simply must check out Elaine’s Quilt Block, Pine Needles, and Quilters’ Haven: they are heaven for fabric lovers! I picked up this piece from Tula Pink’s new collection, Fox Field, at Elaine’s:
I plan to use it for a binding. I always like stripes for binding, but this one really has a bit of flare.
So that’s where I have been, visiting, sewing, eating too much candy, laughing with my family.
Have a great week! see you back here Thursday for the Bikini QAL
check-in…I have something super fabulous to share….
