It’s time for the biggest voting event of the year. You thought that already happened in the US in November, right? WRONG! There are MUCH better things at stake here. Like bundles of fabric from these guys:           The bundles of Aurifil are just toooooo heavy to post all over the world, hence region limiting them. So Danny, … Read More

Travellin’PicStitch: Mesa Verde Edition

Laurapicstitchbloghop, travel0 Comments

 Mesa Verde was one of my favourite parks for both scenery and interesting history.  It was one national park that we can largely thank women for, but try finding that information on-line…  Gender politics aside, here is my Mesa Verde palette. I’m pretty sure the dark apricot colour is the tourists shirt, but it’s not too far off the paint … Read More

After Mesa Verde and the guns excitement that was Cortez Colorado (not really guns excitement Mum, we just found all the ‘ammo, liquor and jewellery’ shops funny and very different to Utah), we slipped over the border into New Mexico, then to Arizona, then back to Utah for some more shooting… of the photographic kind. Monument Valley is famous for … Read More

Messin’ in Mesa (Verde)

Mesa Verde was one of my favourite spots so far. It’s a world heritage site located in southwestern Colorado, near the town of Cortez (where we found a quilt shop – hurrah). Being lazy, I don’t think I can explain it any better than the park’s website, which states: Mesa Verde, Spanish for green table, offers a spectacular look into … Read More

Hurrah! I’ve finished my first block for the Travellin’ Pic Stitch Bloghop. This first one is based on Salt Lake City. I played with a few different pictures for SLC, taken on the clear shiny day that we visited the Mormon temple. Blue skies abounded so blue was a given. I also looked at this fellow and found similar colours … Read More
