We headed to Colorado for vacation, the first few days in Colorado Springs.  Here are some highlights
Pikes Peak
Royal Gorge Bridge

Manitou Cliff Dwellings

Seven Falls

Chapel at Air Force Academy
Breckenridge area for alpine slides and hiking

Then on the way home we went through Wichita, mostly unplanned but hopeful on my part.  I went to Needle Nook Fabrics, arriving at 4 p.m. and staying until 5:30.  I now have a stash again and Wichita's economy has been helped a bit!

My fabric:

New Patterns:

Now to catch up on laundry and wash all this fabric and then it will be sewing time!

    Lori, your pictures remind me of when we lived in Colorado Springs. I still dream about it. (now live in Canada, my home)
    Hope you had a wonderful time. I deeply admire your restraint to not have a stash! Although your fabric is lovely, that is not a stash by some accounts. Look forward to seeing what you sew with that.

  2. Lucky you! We went through Wichita at 5:30 in the morning and I waved to Anne as we passed the Lincoln exit. :(

  3. Hey--I have that Riviera Jacket pattern in your photo (Hot Patterns). I still haven't made it, but I have a nice double knit earmarked for it.

  4. LOvely fabrics and great patterns too! I've been looking at KS 3783 so I am anxious to see your version.

    Looks like you visited some pretty amazing places during your vacation. The pictures are beautiful.

  5. How fun... we were just there in Colorado as well... at Pike's Peak and Royal Gorge. Great pictures!
