It's been a while!

It's been quite a while since I have posted.
When I left, this is what my front walk looked like...

This is what it looked like when I got home on Monday! (why doesn't snow kill weeds forever??)
My Easter flowers :o) (sorry for fuzzy pictures...from my phone camera!)

I ended up going to Grand Junction to help my mother pack and move to Denver so that she could be closer to one of my brothers. What was suppose to be a 2 week trip ended up being 2 days short of a month! There was a huge rock slide on I-70 which closed up the freeway for awhile and we didn't want to take 2 big moving trucks over the 200 mile 2 lane detour!

The 'moving crew'! Boy was I HAPPY to see them :o)
Final destination...
I did get to take a break to go see the girls and their families in the Salt Lake area. Kelly and I sewed a bit with me showing her a few different ways to apply a zipper and a few other quilting techniques. Wish she were closer so we could take advantage of both of our sewing machines together more often!

Lylia loves mini M&M'sI then went to Jennifer's where first we went to a sale at a fabric wholesaler ( did you know you can get 5 bolts of fabric into a suitcase!!), and then we went back to her house and with said new fabric made a duvet cover, curtains, pillow case and pillows for little Maddy's room! Whew...what a glorious whirlwind :o) Here are some pictures.

I also bought some of the giant ric rac to sell with the fabric in me new Etsy Shop. (still can't believe that I am trying this!) I was planning on taking pictures of the new ric rac to post and realized that Gordon took the camera to China with him!

Here are a few pictures of the visit to Jennifer's...

Maddy thinks of herself as one of the 3 Musketeers!
I caught this sweet one at bedtime...
This was a sign that a small business owner paid for in Grand Junction!
I had a good time, but next time I am thinking.....relaxing time...... (although Mother did show me a nice time in between packing all of the boxes! We had lunch out a few times (o: ) I stayed with Phillip and Lisa at the end but alas, I didn't pull out my camera! sorry!
