Back From Utah (picture heavy)

I think I am almost caught up on sleep.   I was gone all last week to Park City Utah to help my super awesome fabric designer friend Amanda Herring with her Lula retreat.

 First stop is the amazing house that the retreat was held at.   It was called 'The Grand Love Shack' and had 11 bedrooms!  

Now these next few pictures may make you a little lightheaded.  One of the rooms was designated as a 'candy room' with about 15 glass jars filled with all types of candy.   If you are wondering, I will put your mind at ease, this is where you could find me most morning, afternoons, and evenings.


These adorable felt flowers were given out to each of the guests and had pins and clips on the back so could be worn or clipped onto something.


Here are a few of us clowning around in the kitchen when we should be doing something much more productive.   Notice the fancy aprons Amanda and I made?




This next picture is a huge one stroked off my bucket list - the headquarters of Riley Blake Fabrics!   And it gets better.....

Yep, there I am with the gang from Riley Blake!   On the left is dear sweet Julia who always sends me awesome fabric to play with.   Then next to me is Cindy the super generous owner of RB Fabrics, and on the far right is Jina the second in command who is so sincere and lovely.
I could barely speak I was so overwhelmed to actually be standing there with them at headquarters in the room they tape their tutorials!


Of course it wouldn't be me if I didn't clown around a bit.


I brought one suitcase inside of another, so I could bring all of this home!



Life is good!   Thanks Lula!
