A Trip To Yuma

We woke to sunshine and a cold wind but at least no more rain. Michael took Emmi for a walk while I got us ready to head to Yuma. He walked to the wash where we frequently walk and said the water level reached over two feet in places, yikes! We left about 10am and of course got caught up in the usual Quartzsite traffic, I think this is the last day of the RV show so everyone was out doing their last minute junk shopping.

There was a quilt show in Yuma (about 80 miles) and one of the vendors, The Quilting Connection, was bringing me zippers for the longarm. Of course I wanted to see all the quilts and do a little shopping, too.

We enjoyed a nice lunch before going to the civic center for the show. Michael took his laptop and enjoyed a high speed internet connection while I did the quilt show. Emmi napped.

The quilts were beautiful as usual and there were lots of vendors with goodies. I resisted buying anything except the zippers and a gift for a dear friend. I did purchase three out of date magazines that I had not read from the sponsoring guild for the whopping sum of 50 cents each!
The drive to Yuma is beautiful with views almost all the way of the mountains within the KOFA Wilderness Area. We may explore going out there to camp soon.

Yuma calls itself the lettuce capital of the world. This is one of the green fields of lettuce along the highway, we also cabbages ready to harvest.
The background fabric behind this quilt made it appear as it there were a light behind the tree. I loved this quilt.

This quilt was hand appliqued and hand quilted--stunning!
It was a great Arizona day, a little cool but a great day!
