This pic is before final assembly of the top. I'm happy with the Grunge and modern fabrics. It will finish about 35". The backing and binding are cut, I have spray baste, and will need to get this sandwiched ASAP as it will be gifted next Sunday at a shower and this is a busy week.
I hope every Mom had a lovely Mother's Day. We had our annual brunch here with lots of family and food and enjoyed it all. My kids and husband bought me a FitBit to help me get my steps in :) Later in the afternoon I took a nice nap, we had a light dinner, and then I wanted to sew. I have been working on a bin of Jewel Box blocks and matched up all the assembled component pairs the last time I had it out, making it easy to sit and sew them into blocks.

I have a few more vacation photos, from our trip to Marble Canyon, fishing on the Colorado River.
The rock cliffs were so interesting and different around every bend. Here the rocks were shifted to vertical position. Here and there you could see a green bush that managed to cling to a small amount of dirt in the rocks. Those bushes in the upper half of the picture were probably 5-10 feet in diameter, but look tiny against the massive cliff face.
Off the boat, we hiked in a short distance and visited a site with Petroglyphs scratched into the rock face. I'd say these deer were probably about 10-12" long and high. There were a number of other figures and symbols on this section of the cliff.
My final picture on the river was of these wild horses. They totally ignored as they grazed in the setting sun. We had seen them high above the river earlier in the day. It was so special to see them closer up. I'd recommend spending a day on the Colorado River to anyone--there were lots of rafting companies giving tours from Marble Canyon. It was really spectacular, serene and interesting all at once. A definite 10 of a day!
