No craft today. Instead my people and I got to experience one of the most amazing natural wonders in the world ....
The Grand Canyon!
It is bigger, more beautiful and more awe-inspiring than you could ever imagine!
I have no words that could possibly describe this place adequately.
The trees right down the bottom there are 10 stories high!!! If you would like some better images or some amazing facts take a look here.
It was one of the coldest days that this ex-Brisbanite has ever experienced ...
And this is why!
This afternoon the kids and I got to experience snow for the VERY first time!!!!!!
Very cool ... literally!!!!!
Tomorrow we are heading back to Vegas then on to Yosemite National Park where apparently we are likely to be seeing a bit more of this white stuff ... we had better get some warmer clothing!!!!!!!
Before I go I will leave you with an amazing beauty. This is my favorite minature quiltfrom Houston. This quilt is by Kumiko Frydl and is called Mission Impossible.
The quilt is a 1/20th replica of a pretty amazing quilt that was featured on the cover of July / August 2007 edition of Quilters Newsletter by Kathy Nakajima. I had dreams about the original ... now I have two spectacular dreams to choose from!
Enjoy your week!
