We have to head back home tomorrow, so this will be my last blog post from Sedona for this year. I just packed up my sewing supplies, including these latest wool birds that I've been embroidering and beading.
I also packed away what turned out NOT to be a Jelly Roll 1600. When I sewed the last two sections together, below, I realized it wasn't as big as it should be. Oops. The packet of fabric I used only had 27 strips, not the required 40 for a Jelly Roll 1600. (Forty strips at 40 inches each adds up to 1,600.) I think I may make six placemats out of it.
Speaking of fabric, we saw these prayer flags this week at a Tibetan Buddhist shrine here at Amitabha Stupa and Peace Park. We would have spent more time there, but it was a wicked windy, cold day.
I can't leave without taking pictures of the pictures in our rental house. I love these two and will look at them on rainy, gray days back home.
And here is the final photo of the desert. I took this yesterday from the town of Jerome, perched high on a hillside outside of Cottonwood. It was hazy because of the wind and dust, but I love the shades of blue.
Have a colorful day
