I'm back!

We just got back last night from 2 1/2 weeks of vacation... we were in Utah visiting family and friends and having a great time! I can't wait to dust off my sewing machine and get going on my long list of projects.

I was composing blog posts in my head on the looonnng drive home... here are some of our July in Utah highlights:

*Hand sewing hexagons on the drive out. (And while we were there, too.) These are for my doll quilt swap quilt. I made a total of 40. So far.
hexagons for DQS9
*3 extended family parties... all on July 3. We were able to visit with our grandparents, cousins, aunts and uncles, and cousins' kids. And actually some great-aunts and uncles too. Lots of family.
*Fireworks (just the home DIY version, we didn't go to the big show this year)
*Eating at Siegfried's in Salt Lake City (aka the German restaurant)
*Seeing all my siblings except for one brother
*Seeing all 11 nieces and nephews on my side
*Going to lunch with my Taylor aunts and cousins and my mom and sisters. Cafe Rio... why can't there be food that good where I live?!
*Visiting a couple of Utah quilt shops--here's what I got at Material Girls in South Jordan:
The top two prints will be perfect for our KC Modern Quilt Guild charity project. The others were just for fun.
*Meeting up with Amy and Natalia. We had a fun picnic at a park... the kids played and we talked and visited for a while. It was fun to meet them both!

I have more pictures to share on my other camera--there will be another vacation update soon!
