The Grand Canyon !!!

This weekend I took my dearest New York friends Reenie and Trace to the Grand Canyon. I have never seen anything in my life as BEAUTIFUL as the Grand Canyon. !!!!! 
Can you say "Awesome"!! I was just speechless this whole trip. For those who know me... Speechless is not something I do often :):)   It was a wonderful trip. A true blessing to be able to see such wonder.
I mean seriously!! Just gorgeous!!!!! We took the train from Williams, AZ. They were celebrating 110 years on the rails, and had a steam engine pull us all the way to the Grand Canyon. On the way home we were robbed!!!! By armed bandits!! (on horseback)....Of course the train had to stop to let them on. lol!!! Our kids thought that was GREAT!! :):)
Before my friends came I did a crash sewing session. I made this small wall quilt.
Of course, you know me... I have to piece my backs!!

Well, that's it for now.... DON"T FORGET TO WORK ON YOUR QUILTIES!!!
Mail out date is OCT 15th.
                                                                 
                    Hugs to all!!  Sandie

Hi Sandra;
You have a lovely blog. I am always in awe of quilters ~ I definitely lack the patience and know-how of a quilter. Quilting is an art in it's beautiful form and I love seeing them.
Thanks for the email introducing yourself to me and for your kind words about my blog. I look forward to reading more on your blog as I am now a follower.
Hugs and blessings to you
Kelly

Hi Sandie! Those are some great pictures of the Grand Canyon! I haven't been there since I was a kid. It truly is amazing.
Love, love, love the quilt! The colors are fantastic. You have been busy!
I have been decorating for Halloween and have also come down with a cold (which my husband so graciously gave me). Plus I am trying to get ready for the PM blog party on friday, so I have not posted in a while.
Hope to talk with you soon!
Chrislyn
