Basketball, Arizona and Spring!!!

My header sounds like we might hit some March Madness/Sweet Sixteen kind of stuff, but no not until next year! DS, not 1, 2 or 3 ~ just only, played ball in Eastern Idaho where handsome little brother of mine lives. I snapped this photo of them after the game. Brother (he's number 3, the other two are very handsome also!) is willing to get his picture taken. My parents weren't willing, but were present.

I was able to catch a few glimpses of eye candy in the form of quilting fabric. Aren't these pieces nice? The blue polka dot is for a boy Bulls Eye baby quilt. I got it at The Quilt Shoppe in Rigby.
For the other two pieces, I will use them in curtains for the patio doors in my kitchen, which I started a few months ago, but because of several factors, am not sure how to proceed....
Last summer while visiting married college girl #2 in Utah, she and ds went swimming at the local pool. I enjoyed watching them play together while stitching a Spring pillow. Had to show the back also, it's pieced I figured it out~~ all by myself! Spring huh? In the last hour we just experienced a huge thunder, hail, sleet and snow storm. It came on really fast!

NOW, calling all you ladies from ARIZ.! since I'm spending a good week there in a week~~we have a day set aside for all the fun shops, flee, quilt, antique, whatever you say is good~~sooo, send me your ideas. I'll be in the Peoria/Tuscan/Mesa area with this cute girl! We do hope to hit IKEA too! Oh how will I ever get it all back to Idaho??? j.k. While in the A state, cute girl and I are sponsoring a giveaway, jointly, so please check back with me or her to sign up! We have some neat little items to send your way. In your comment we will be asking you to provide some fun information about YOU!!! Take Care.

If you took I-15 to Rigby, you went right past my house. I just north of Blackfoot. I didn't even know there was a quilt shop in Rigby. I just might have to travel the few extra miles next time I am in Idaho Falls and check it out. Is it easy to find?

Diane, Thanks for your lovely comment. I am going home in 5 weeks for 14 days, looks like I will just miss you. As we are in the middle of an ice/sleet/wind storm, I understand how you feel. AZ is perfect this time of year though, you will love it.
I plan on hitting as many quilt stores around Phoenix as I can but at the moment don't have any to recommend. I will check with some quilty people I know and see if they have any favorites.
I was born in Pocatello, and my dad is from Driggs. I told Nancy, that he also went to USU. Such a small world. Thanks again for checkin' in with me. I really enjoy your blog. Love Stacy
