Since I started my blog I've become "blogger friends" with people all over the world, and this week I got to meet one in person for a day of shop-hopping, lunch and show-and-tell. "Tie Dye Judy" came down from Flagstaff to meet me in Sedona. Her post about our visit is here: http://tiedyejudy.blogspot.com/2013/03/sedona-with-sherrie-spangler.html
We started at the Cocopah bead shop in the very picturesque Tlaquepaque shopping center. We both gravitated toward the same sun pendants (above) and each ended up buying one. Then we went to Cocopah's sister shop across the street, which also sells vintage quilts and other fiber art. There, I bought two more pendants -- the rabbit because of you-know-who and the red rock jasper one because it reminds me of the desert scenery.
Here's Judy with a quilt she made using some of her tie-dyed fabric. Below is one of the coiled bowls that she learned how to make from one of my blog posts. It was really fun to see what she's been doing with the technique. This one blends in perfectly with the Sedona rocks.

Last stop (after a delicious lunch of chilaquiles) was Quilter's Store Sedona, where I bought the jelly roll strips for the quilt I showed you in my last post. The shop is full of bright, sunny colors, friendly clerks, and vivid Southwest-inspired quilts like these:
Thanks for a fun day, Judy!
Have a colorful day
