Wednesday - not exactly wordless

I got up at 2:30 this morning to make a 5:30 a.m. flight to Houston, where I changed planes to Grand Junction, CO.  Remarkably, the flights were smooth and my luggage arrived at GJT when I did.  Jane Aldoretta, owner of Fabric Arts Studio, met me at the plane and we went to have lunch. We picked up another electric frying pan at Goodwill for the class and headed over to her gorgeous, spacious new studio.  I'll take pictures tomorrow.

Grand Junction is in the southwest corner of the state, near Utah, Nevada, and Arizona.  It is not verdant like the area around the Rockies; it is more desert than anything and is beautiful in a desolate sort of way.

We went to Sandra Hoefner's for dinner and I had to take a picture of this gorgeous Russian Sage in front of her house. There are many of them there.
After dinner Jane drove me up to Colorado National Monument, which I think I saw two years ago. But it was winter and it looked different.   Here are the photos I took tonight: the wordless part.

 See you tomorrow in the classroom!

I am looking forward to attending your classes this week! I have admired your work for years and know I'll learn a lot. I can't believe you have the energy to blog when you got up so early this morning and had such a full day!
