Las Vegas, Quiltique, Harley-Davidson, Popped and a visit with Carissa & Niccolo

So much to share in just one blog entry.

We needed to visit Carissa, our homesick girl.              To be honest, I think we miss her more than she misses us.

Either way…road trip!DSC06340

So we stopped and had a Bob’s Big Boy combo and a photo.


Last week it stormed in Las Vegas and dropped quite a lot of rain.  This was still evident in what appeared to be a lake a Stateline!IMG_1215

Carissa and Niccolo have a wonderful view of the strip from their living room.  That is the Las Vegas Strip in the distance (even more beautiful at night, but much harder to photograph for me).

Well, we had a great time.  We ate, walked, swam and even ate some frozen pop corn.  This is crazy!!!  This place in called Popped.  They freeze the pop corn and cover it with liquid nitrogen and then when you eat it you produce what looks like smoke.  Crazy, check out the video (it is short).

Fun Stuff!

We had a stop at the Harley-Davidson dealer (I think it is an even exchange…  Harley Shop for Quilt Store)!


Now for the quilt goodies!  Quiltique is in Henderson and quite a find!


The sign outside is unique (I think that is important for a store, to have a unique name and logo).


As you enter the store this cute display is to your right.


The store has colorful walls.  The walls accent the fabrics and quilts inn the store.  I think it all works really well.DSC06342

So much eye candy.DSC06343

The store is large enough for some wonderful displays.DSC06344

They are a Bernina dealer and have a great sewing machine area.DSC06345

So much fun stuff.  This wall had dyed wool and buttons and other goodies.


The classroom is amazing as well as the quilts throughout the entire store.DSC06346

Here is the front counter.  At this point I was ready to have my fabrics cut and to check out.  The lady that helped my was sweet.  I truly enjoyed my time in Quiltique.  I will make it a point to visit this store again when I visit Carissa in the future.DSC06348

Here are my goodies!  I am a lover of Batiks and I do not have these (until now).DSC06352

There is a furniture store in the same complex as the quilt store.  Carissa sat down in this chair and felt like a little girl.  She makes my laugh!  Isn’t she cute?DSC06351

Well, I am home safe and sound.  Lindsay (my other cutie pie) and Austin made dinner for the four of us and cleaned it up (scored)!  Now I am sitting on my couch with my laptop, blogging.  I think it is time get out my applique and enjoy the evening till bedtime.

Hope you had as wonderful a weekend as I did,

Blog at you later,

Hey Max! I understand you being emotional about this topic. That can’t be avoided, especially if you’re talking about your passion, your love, your life.
