bright n purdy

Just when I thought the quilting bug was out of my system for awhile...I see this...and my heart pitter patters for those bright fabrics in funky shapes once again.

Soooo mesmerizing!

It was a WARM weekend here in upstate New York...but I know it was nothing compared to the summer oven that is my home back in Arizona.  On hot days back home we would beat the heat with big refreshing 44 ounce cold drinks.  My favorite was the fresh brewed iced tea from QT (Quik Trip).  Their's actually perfect.

I would kill for a QT right now.  And their wall of amazing fountain beverages.  Best gas station ever.

People here don't drink fountain beverages purchased at gas stations.  I never see it.

Boy are they missing out.

gorgeous gorges

I only want to live where it is beautiful.  I hope it works out that way.

We fell in love with Ithaca.  Soooo in love.

*note - Ithaca is famous for its gorges...I didn't misspell gorgeous.  I admit I am a horrific speller...but I didn't get that wrong!

We bought a fancy camera when our daughter was born...along with one of those "Dummies" books to help us learn how to take sweet shots with the camera (soooo many buttons!!???)  We haven't even cracked the book yet - no time to read about taking pictures while we are actually taking pictures.  This looks helpful (and so visually stunning).
