No sew day

It was a no sew kind of day yesterday.  Nope, my BFF of 50 years and her family, came to town! We took a little adventure to the Denver Botanical Gardens to see the Chihuly Blown Glass exhibit.

Warning:  lots of photos. :-)


















There was surprisingly few flowers in bloom, but those that were, were stunning.
I can almost see each and every one as the base of a fabulous art quilt.











Oh and my "pic" of the day...

Kind of takes your breath away doesn't it?
:-)
Update

I just got a comment from a no reply blogger about the last photo I took and an award winning quilt at Houston last year.



This blows me away, I had  no idea...
Thanks Kristin for the link.

  9. Oh, I love Dale Chihuly's glass! I got to go to his exhibit in San Francisco a few years back, but it was indoors, so didn't get too many pictures. They are wonderful out in the garden like that, just glorious! Thanks for sharing with us.
