On our drive from Oregon to Colorado I took pictures out the window of the car as we drove.
I wanted to see all of the places we drove through the camera. We drove through some incredibly beautiful places. They are not the usual beauty though.
Some of the places were so desolate.

I am hoping to use some of these photos for inspiration for some mini quilts.

Jacquie from Tallgrass Prairie Studio has put out a challenge to finish projects previously started in the month of April. I think this is a great idea. I am going to join in. The first thing I need to complete is a sundress I am making for my niece. Now those of you who read my blog may wonder how I am going to do this since my sewing machine died. Well fortunatly a couple of years ago I purchased a machine at a estate sale for my daughter and I have been storing it for her. So I have taken it out and will use it until I make a dicision as to what kind of machine I want and can afford. I looked at machines while I was in Colorado and I was SHOCKED at the cost of a machine that will do what I want. I went to the Bernina store and Oh, they are so cool but also sooooo expensive. So I will be doing some thinking and also looking to see if I can find a second hand machine.
