Mom and I found a super-cute little fabric shop in Old Town Ft. Collins, right off Mountain Ave. Mama Said Sew offers fabric, notions, sewing classes, a blog I like to follow, and super-great staff! We stopped in a bought a couple of fat quarters, took a picture for posterity, and they threw in a really cute charm pack featuring the new Baby Jane line.
|Posterity photo! I do love their sign, though.|
|Fat quarters from Mama Said Sew. Anybody else find it odd that these are my Mom's favorite colors?|
|The Baby Jane charm pack... loving these fabrics, and thinking there is a patchwork pillow in my future.|
|Gorgeous ombre fabric that I just might need to order.|
They also had a phenomenal selection of fat quarters and remnants, and I just had too much fun there. The hard part was limiting the purchases since I only had the one carry-on!

And then on to the Family Reunion! My cousin Gary and his wife Candace were kind enough to host, so for three days their beautiful property was over-run by the family. We had about 44 people show up, and it was a great time! I consider it a successful family reunion... no cops were called, no one lost limbs or more than a pint of blood, and we even got a rainbow!

|Love this... and I need to credit Sonja with these fantastic photos!|

Thanks for sharing my trip with me... I hope you had as much fun as I did!
P.S. I left the wicked vicious mosquitoes in Colorado for a new unsuspecting victim, so watch yourselves!
