Not Dead......Yet....

Nope, I haven't died. And the Blogger software hasn't been disabled. I've just been trying to keep my head above water over the last month.

So, here's a recap of what's been going on lately...

I attend Quilt Market in Salt Lake City the first part of May. Having lived in Texas my whole life, I really enjoyed the mountain scenery. On our first day, the husband of a quilt shop owner recommended that we drive back to town through the Provo canyon. The drive was gorgeous! We took a slight detour to Sundance - Robert Redford's resort.

This is a view of one of the ski lifts with snow still on the mountains. During our stay in SLC, they were still getting snow in the higher elevations and we would check the "white" each morning. And it's MAY! Such a departure from the weather here at home - thunderstorms, tornadoes, and 85 degree temps...

Upon return from Market, I spent the next 2 weeks meeting with fabric reps (I'd rather see them in my shop than at Market) looking at approximately 10,000 different pieces of fabric. Turns the brain to absolute mush. Also on the schedule was making plans and samples for our Market Review Party, year-end orchestra rehearsals and concerts, and the girl child's 12th birthday (a celebration which lasted for several days).

On top of all that, I misplaced my battery charger and couldn't take or download pictures.

Since I haven't had the opportunity to take real quilt pictures, I'll share this picture with you. I was at Wal-Mart during Mother's Day weekend and this just struck me as hilarious.

I didn't receive a 3-foot statue of the Virgin of Guadalupe for Mother's Day. Did you?

School is almost out. May is almost over. Thank God.
