Moving It Forward~ Bryce

Last week I had a wonderful time at The Winter Retreat in beautiful Bryce Canyon.  We left a day early to avoid a big storm.  All that snow made for beautiful scenery.  Here is my Uncut Diamonds quilt among the snow and red rock.  
Ruth and spent an afternoon snowshoeing.  In addition to this gorgeous scenery, we saw a 20 something young man dive out of a dead tree from about 15' up.  He came up looking like the abominable snowman.  Sorry happened so fast I didn't get a picture.
 In addition to the beautiful red rock this sunrise was breath taking.  
 I had a great time sharing my love of scrap quilting, first with a lecture and then with this lovely group of ladies.  Didn't they do a great job on their Mad Dash blocks?!

 I spent one morning in the vendors area selling my soaps and patterns.  A cute little Asian family stopped by.  Chatting with them through their translate app reminded me of our foreign exchange student, Cynthia.  They went home with a bunch of my soap.
My hubby had heard about this car, a Tarbant.  He asked me to find it and take a picture for him.  Apparently they are very rare especially in the US.  Hubby being a car guy was very interested.  I took pictures from the sides and the back.  There was too much snow to get the front. 
Sorry about forgetting the link up for the Medallion Quilt Along.  It is up now if you would like to share your center.
Now that I've shared my week.  Not a lot of sewing moving forward for me.  But a great week none the less.  Let me see what you've been moving forward.

  1. It looks like a beautiful place for your retreat. I love all the scrappy goodness.

    Why would someone leave such a rare car out in that snow???

  4. I had no idea you and Ruth are friends. How wonderful! Bryce is gorgeous and your quilt looks amazing photographed there. So great that the family got some of your soap. As I am a soapmaker too, I know they will love using your soap. That is a lovely picture of the car. I like the green top. Glad you had a lot of fun :)

  5. That scenery is to die for although it was definitely enhanced by your quilt! Looks like a fun retreat and good you got to showcase both of your areas of expertise.

  7. Oh, Holy Old Eastern Europe! I'm hungarian, and i can tell about trabant for hours. :o) Moreover, i drove it too. Trabants don't like summer's heat, anywhere you go with it, you have to take with you two liters of cooling water and a cylinder head gasket... You can find on youtube more about it, for example what its voice. Oh, and everyone called them soap-boxes...
