"Patches" Workshop

I just love these small pieces of fiber art that were made by my students in my "Patches" workshop.

East to Home

Our road trip continued east with a stop at Meteor Crater near Flagstaff, AZ ...

... and then through Winslow to ...

... Holbrook, AZ for the night.

We enjoyed the cars and ...

... trucks of yesteryear.

This cute little camper caught Paul's attention.

I wanted to spend the night in one of the Tee Pees next to an old car; but Paul thought otherwise!

Coming on East we stopped outside of Amarillo, TX at the Cadillac Ranch, where we did a little graffiti ...

... and enjoyed a park in Wichita Falls, TX ...

... and on to my sister Emily & Perry's place for 2 nights.

The creativity in her sewing room is marvelous.

While the men worked on Perry's pickup truck, Emily took me around.
I helped her stuff envelopes for their concrete business and then ...

... we went to some thrift shops and on to one of her friends who quilts.

And now it's home again. Our 20 year shingles did pretty good holding up for 18 years.

Lake Powell and Glen Canyon Dam

We enjoyed this scenic overlook at Powell Lake near Page, AZ ...

... and later walked to the Glen Canyon Dam.

The Colorado River continues it's run South to Grand Canyon.

Zion National Park

Life ...
It's hard for me to describe the beauty we saw at Zion National Park.

We chose to walk the easy trail to "The Narrows." From here on you had to wade in water.

... as a Quilter
Paul so graciously stopped at Superior Threads for me. Even though they were closed; I was glad at least for a photo.

Moving Dustins and Calico Ghost Town

The sunset was beautiful as ...

... Paul and I were flying to California to ...

... help Dustin & Gina pack and move back East.

While Paul and Dustin filled every crack and cranny of the U-Haul trailer ...

... Bryce and a friend, Allison had fun outside.

One last picture in the small backyard on McClemont Street.

Paul and I are driving Dustin's car back to Mississippi and decided to take the long way around. Today we stopped at an old ghost mining town near Baker, CA.

I doubt I was proper enough for riding a stage coach.

You can see the word "Calico" on top of the mountain.

I loved the old general store.

I'm so glad we have modern technology in dentistry today.

Paul enjoyed looking at the beautiful rocks in the gift shops.

Back in it's heyday, the school house also served as the church meeting house when the traveling pastor came around.

We took the walking tour of Maggie Mine.

I was impressed with the greatness of the bellows.

The Mulcahy Brothers lived here for 20 years. Did you see the quilt?

And I found this quilt in the Craft Shop covered with other things.

We really enjoyed being tourists!
