Music In The Air This Week

It's the first day (and my day) of the "Music" blog hop hosted by the amazing Carla of Creatin' in the Sticks. I'm sure someone will share a song or two along with their project that will be repeating itself in my head after this week is over. Hopefully it is a song I like!


With a few delays to sewing my project, it actually worked out to my advantage. Joan from Moosestash Quilting flew in for the weekend and we took our quilts out with us for photos and adventures. To say we had a blast is an understatement! She posts her quilt project tomorrow. I claim the 5th on anything she might say about our adventures. 


Joan was so brave while standing close to those bighorn sheep. Some of them have big, big horns!
You can see Lake Mead in the background. The water is so low!


Guitar Obsession
64" x 64"


Fabrics used were Benartex's Cotton Shot by Amanda Murphy.
I love solids for my applique projects, and these are perfect for them.


Cotton Shot Amethyst, Cotton Shot Red, and Cotton Shot Green fabrics made me want to
 "Twist and Shout" while I was putting the guitar applique pieces together. Such pretty colors!




Boulder City has some interesting shops, like Sherman's House of Antiques.
Joan and I were given permission to take photos with some popular stars standing out front.

Dan Ackroyd and Elvis sang the blues for us while holding my quilt. 


John Belushi was the perfect "Soul Man" for this photo.


Marilyn thought quilts might just be a girl's best friend instead of diamonds.


"Yo Ho Ho and a Bottle of Rum" and a warm quilt to trade for gold.


Darth Vader wouldn't give me my quilt back and I wasn't going to argue with him.
I didn't want to start a Quilt War...he's too scary!


We tried, and failed, to stay out of trouble at the Clark County Museum in Henderson. Apparently, while crashing a wedding in the chapel, we set off an alarm by hanging our quilts over a plexiglass partition. Whoops! The museum worker was nice to us, though. He said he was glad it was us and not someone stealing something. 


This train at the museum was a stark reminder that I was now a relic and/or antique. The train used to sit in "Fantasy Park" in North Las Vegas where I would play on it as a child. It was old back then, but there were no fences to stop us from climbing on it. Any old timer from Las Vegas usually remembers the fun times they had climbing on it. In spite of how old it made me feel, I was so excited to see it!


You can find "Guitar Obsession" in my Etsy Store HERE.

There's more music for your ears and eyes on these blogs...check them out!

  1. Wow, I like that quilt! I'm not on Etsy any more, or I would get that pattern! Your pictures are SO creative. I laughed thinking about the fun you two had. I've never seen Lake Mead like that. I remember the year they had to release water from the lake for the first time ever, and it splashed so high our car at the dam parking lot was covered like it had been in a rainstorm. Thanks for the picture of the train engine, as not much makes me happier than trains. Thank you for a great start!
