Just returned from Colorado! DH and I try to make it to the mountains once a year and they never disappoint! I have had a fascination with the Rockies since my teen-aged days. I think it is because they are so permanent, so spiritual, so so gorgeous! I was able to hit several quilt shops too--always a soul-lifting experience!! I have to admit I did purchase a "few" pieces of fabric, couple of patterns, and some miscellaneous items. These are my "souvenirs" in place of cedar boxes and t-shirts!!! The second photo is a fabric I found in a shop in Colorado Springs. It had been made up into a bag. So darn cute! The shop was out of the black background print of it and the pattern and the kits. :( However, the clerk thought I might be able to find the pattern on their website, which I will try to do. It has funny quilters with funny sayings! I wish I had bought more! Off to catch up on laundry, finish unpacking, and --of course--pet two very love-starved cats!
