Great find in Sierra Vista, AZ!

The last day of my trip to my daughter's in Sierra Vista, AZ, we checked out the local quilt shop. The Squirrel's Nest is a wonderful surprise in this small city. In an unassuming red metal building is a fabulous collection of quilting fabrics and spinning, weaving and knitting supplies. Our worker from the store was a kind and fun gal who took the time to chat and make us feel welcome. I scored some Kaffe Fassett and Alexander Henry fabrics before saying good-by and boarding the plane for home. Thanks, Squirrel's Nest, for making my last day in Sierra Vista a fun one!
I love this scrappy quilt on display at the store

Fabric, books, wool, notions, quilts...I'm home!

This antique quilt is made from men's ties and clothing.

A view of the store.There is also a bustling classroom along one side of the store. Lots of giggling and chatting coming from that room.

This is the sign out front, with the beautiful Huachuca mountains in the distance.

I couldn't fit the entire length of the store in the shot, but this is The Squirrel's Nest.

Coming home from Arizona tonight!

I've been away from Wazoo quilting for a week and I am really itching to get back to work! My daughter is doing fine, so I know things will be okay while she has the cast on her foot. The grandkids and I had fun seeing some of the local sites and eating out (don't want a burger for a loooooong time...) and just hanging out at home. I'll be back in Florida tomorrow, after an overnight flight and a layover in Atlanta. See you all on the flip side! Yee Hah!

our day trip to Tombstone

Amy was up for the trip, but 'crutching' on gravel on a slope...not so much.

Old Bisbee. A great place for poking in antique stores and art galleries
