Park City Pleasantries

A week in Park City. Time to sew and be with best girlfriends. It doesn't get much better than this.
One morning we did a photo shoot with Judi. She wanted a new picture for her blog photo. Ruth and I got out our camera's and shot away. I took this one, and I think she looks so pretty!

We've been busy at our machines. Judi brought projects to finish.

Mission accomplished.

Ruth and Judi
We've been best girlfriends for years and years. We were trying to add up, and we think we have done this annual get-away together for around 13 years now.
Ruth worked on piles of blocks from her scraps.

I brought supplies so the ladies could try Texture Magic on the cupcake tote.
This is Beth's tote.

Bethie also made a scissor holder. She Texture Magic-ed a 9" square and then cut out a 6" circle. She added binding to the edges, folded and added a covered button for the closure.

Beth also finished this yellow quilt.

And finished the inside of Everyday Dishes (by Piece O Cake).

We all started this quilt together a few years ago, and I've taught this as a class.
Today we took a break and went to the open air farmers market right at the base of the ski slopes.
In the winter this place covered in snow and filled with skiers.

There were many artisans selling their wares.

This man was making beautiful Tongan wood carvings.

To add to the interesting people, these guys who ran this booth took me back to the 1960's where I was raised near San Francisco. Anybody remember Haight Ashbury? Groovy man.
One daughter is a graduate of the University of Utah, and another will graduate in December. Do you think I should get them one of these tye dyed shirts for Christmas?

The real reason we came to the farmers market was to load up on delicious Utah produce.
Apples from the Santaquin valley.

Mr. Cactus has been doing such a good job holding down the fort this week, that I thought he would be happy to know I'm bringing back fresh Utah corn, Brigham City peaches and freshly baked artisan bread from Volkers.

Pretty cool that you've been doing this getaway for 13 years! And you were all so productive! Love all the produce you are taking home. I would probably skip the tie dye shirts. ;)

What a lot of fun you're all having! Keep enjoying your time together! I love Judy's pictures too!

Oh the produce looks so yummy! Did you really go there today (Wed)? Just trying to put it on my own calendar...I didn't know they had a Farmer's Market. I would love to go!

Sounds like you are having a great, productive, fun time!
