We visited family near St. George, Utah. I'm an eastern city girl type but even I think this scene from the side of the road was impressive.
We had the best pizza that I've tasted since moving to Utah. And go figure - it was out of a wood fired pizza stove sitting in a trailer in a cinema parking lot. If you are ever driving through Hurricane, Utah, look in the parking lots for this family selling pizzas. Just amazing pizza. You can see the gray sky. It rained some while we were there, but then I like rain.
Here are 2 of my sisters hard at work. We did sew blocks for our picnic block exchange. I brought a bag of scraps to use. It was so fun.
This is my niece on the left. The four of us spent 2 days cutting and then sewing.
I love taking my trusty feather weight machine with me. She packs and works.
I must have clicked small on these photos but I won't reload. We went to several local antique stores. Here is my sister Michelle looking around the sewing machine corner.
Sleds and ringer washing machines. Good memories of these.
I really liked this western themed wall hanging. I don't have anything western in my house but it was clever.
We really did see lots of machines for sale. The local quilt store in Hurricane (Main Street Quilt Cottage) had several really nice refurbished feather weight machine's too. We did spend just a few minutes looking at fabric, too.
Love vintage notions.
This looks just like my grade school and jr. high clarinet. Oh those were the days. Just FYI, I was awful and never practiced.
This looks exactly like my friend Sandra Stubblebine's record player we listened to Beatle records on in 1st and 2nd grade.
Metal skates - I sure wish I still had mine. All I have is a skate key.
I really wanted to find a smaller vintage kitchen type scale but all they had was big ones.
I did make a few small purchases. More on that another day. Sewing and shopping with my sisters and niece - fun days.
