Olivia's Holiday Dress for Zerah

Pattern: Portabello Pixie Claire
Fabric: Olivia's Holiday by Tina Givens for Free Spirit
Size: 18-24 months

I can't wait for Zerah to be able to wear this dress! Actually, I can wait because she is growing too fast as it is, but I think it will be really cute on her.:) I love how these fabrics work together, and this is fast becoming one of my favorite patterns.

Albuquerque and Sante Fe

Over the 4th of July weekend we went down to Albuquerque to see my brother and his family. Albuquerque is almost a half way point between where he lives and Denver. It was a wonderful weekend! We spent some time in Sante Fe on the way back home as well.

These first two pictures are from Sante Fe. I love the architecture in both of these towns. It is so vastly different from the South where I grew up.

We to the Petrolglyph National Monument in Albuquerque where there are rock carvings in the volcanic rock from 200-over 2,000 years ago.

It is fascinating to think that these carvings could be that old!

We also spent some time in Old Town Albuquerque.

Isn't the carving in the tree beautiful?

It was a wonderful trip, and I can't wait to go back again.
