Canyon Vistas Quilt Show

Last Wednesday Canyon Vistas held their first ever Quilters', Carvers', and Creative Crafters' showcase.  We had been working on the organization of the event for a year.  It was a great success with lots of volunteers and many vendors from the park.  The maintenance people set up the standards for the show and hung the large quilts from the ceiling.  We had most of the quilts hung in an hour.  My green Nouveau Fleur quilt won first for viewer's choice.  The second place was Diane's John Deere tractor quilt that was completely hand-done.  The third place was Janice's Watercolor quilt.  It was a rainy day and we had so many people come to the showcase.  It was a successful event for everyone.

Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day to everyone.  This is a quilt I completed in 2009 to remember all types of cancer with the different colors of the hearts.  I presented the quilt to the radiology department of my local cancer center after my last treatment.

This is a pattern from Smith Street Designs called Heart of My Heart. A quick quilt to complete.

Arizona Desert

This is a photo I took while we were on a jeep trail in the Arizona Desert.  There were six jeeps on the trek.  We usually take some kind of jeep trip on Thursday. We start about nine, take a lunch, and arrive back home in the afternoon.We are usually in the mountains and the high desert. A small area that we drove through had a high density of saguaro cactus.  It was hard to get it in a photo.
