Some Catch Up

 Yuma, Arizona          High 73 Low 45

We didn't do much to celebrate New Years. I guess we are Party Poopers.

Thursday Nancy  drove here from Tucson to visit for a few days before going to Quartzsite. She wanted to go to Algodones for some meds. Cindy also wanted to get a few meds while we were there, so we went Friday.  Going into Mexico there was a guard checking purses, which was first for us. We were in and out in about 30 minutes. I have learned a long time ago, if all you want is at the pharmacy, get there early and there is no wait to get back into the US. This time there wasn't anyone if front of us at customs and we got through painlessly.

After Algodones we went to the Arizona Market for material. Nancy bought quite a bit of fabric and I thought I was getting by for less than $100.00 but then Cindy found some another bolt to finish from the $6 rack. We get it for $5.50 per yard whenever she takes everything on the bolt.

Nancy wanted to go to Grandma Jo's to look at South Western fabric and got some more fabric. Can you see where this is going? Cindy found a pattern she like in the closeout section, so I got by pretty easily.

Friday evening there was a concert. We haven't seen any concerts this year that we wanted to go see and so didn't buy tickets. One of our neighbors came over with a couple of tickets that had been won wondering if we wanted to go. We are getting ready to go to Salt Lake so Cindy can hopefully find out what is wrong with her throat, so she wanted me to take Nancy.  It was Eric and the Dominoes Singing the music of Eric Clapton. Maybe it would have been alright if they had turned down the volume a lot, but it was so loud that we couldn't even come close to enjoying it. 

Yesterday we wanted to go to the yearly quilt show at the Convention Center. When we got first went in there weren't too many people, but after while it got fairly busy. We got lots of pictures. 

This embroidery State quilt was a past People's favorite. Cindy said it had to have been a lot of time and work to make it.

The one above is my favorite in the show.

There was one display on Princess Diana which was all in pink hews. 

We found a quilt panel called Big Dream Leaf which we liked so we bought it. Cindy is going to make it into a fall quilt. 

After that we had to go back to the Arizona Market. This time I got by fairly cheap, since it had only been one day since we had been there. (I think we are probably their best customer.)

Thanks for visiting.
