I liked visiting a favorite LQS along the way in Las Vegas, New Mexico, called Thread Bear.
They had what will probably be my favorite fabric find of the year from Charley Harper's new line of fabric -
When we drive this route to see my mom, we always spend a night in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and I liked this picture on the wall of our hotel room. It was hard to get a good picture of it without glare and reflections on the glass, but hopefully you get the idea!
I think this would make a cool mini quilt!
Just a week or so before we left home, parts of Arizona had gotten a big snowstorm, and we saw this view coming through the mountains just 50 miles away from the desert.
Snow on the mountains!
I knew I would want to take my hand-piecing supplies along, so I packed up the new pouch I finished last week, and it worked perfectly to fit in my suitcase!
Something I always enjoy doing when we are here is picking a grapefruit right off the tree for breakfast!
I'm going to pick some more to take home, too!
Of course, there is birdwatching to be done here, and we found these little guys the other day.
They're called Rosy-faced Lovebirds, and evidently have thrived in this area since the 1980s. They aren't native birds here, but escaped from an aviary during a monsoon. More info HERE if you're curious about them!
Hope you're having a great week! We have a few more days in the sun before we head back north. Hello, Mary in Peoria, I'm waving at you from the east side of Mesa!
I'm joining in with the other I Like Thursday bloggers over at Not Afraid of Color.
