Sunrise on The Strip, and the winner was...

Over the weekend, the winner was chosen at random from comments left on my New2me Juki celebration giveaway post. Congratulations to M-R at Quilt Matters, who we all know from TGIFF! I was excited to pack the little Henna fabric bundle to a real Web-Celeb:-)
On my mind for some time now is a Vegas skyline quilt. Photos I have taken from my house are just a bit too far away to work with, so I drove in 4 or 5 miles this morning and caught a few pics. This is about 15mi SE of the Strip. (I know, I really have no business posting photos taken from my little point and shoot, but this is quilt-related!) I find it challenging to capture desert beauty in photos (without driving to some destination, like Red Rock Canyon).  I live slightly higher up from this vantage point, and I love to see the buildings shimmer in the morning. But from 20mi away, my photos just don't capture it.
I will draw a simple sketch from this photo, so for its purpose it is good, good enough.
On a sad note, I hit a jackrabbit on my way out this morning.
The poor little guy ran right out in front of me.
On a happy note, the book I reserved at the library is in. I thought it may be lost since it was listed in stock, but weeks have gone by. Hopefully it will show me what I did wrong on my donut applique patch:-)


  1. Woo hoo! Thanks so much, Heidi! I love that fabric! :)

  2. i had a great view of mt. charleston out our big picture window over the breakfast table when we lived in NLV. it was pretty and took my mind above the heat! i'm very interested to see what you come up with from your photo, which is nice, btw!
