Tulsa Oklahoma and Quilts!

20150322_124620
Headed into downtown Tulsa!

Just look at that blue blue sky!

I hadn’t seen the sun for days so it was awfully nice to spend part of Sunday under some Tulsa sunshine before heading to the airport.

I learned things that I didn’t know ---Tulsa was native territory, and a small spot on the road, until the oil boom happened.

I enjoyed my a nickle drive-by tour of downtown Tulsa, and I thought I would share these great photos with you while interspersing them with the Show & Share photos from Saturday’s workshop.

The best of both worlds…oh look!  A building!  Look!  A quilt!  It will keep your attention that way..hahaha!

And of course, This Land is Your Land!

Golden Driller!

And you’ve never really been to Tulsa until you’ve driven past the fair grounds and seen for yourself the Golden Driller!  Look to the bottom left of the photo…there are people walking.  They come up to the hem of his pants, maybe.  Ha!

Thank you for your hospitality, Tulsa!

It was my first Oklahoma visit, but it surely won’t be my last.

We held Quilt-Cam last night!  Did you catch it?  You’ll find the feed in last evening’s blog post, or by clicking the Quilt-Cam tab at the top of the blog where they are all archived!  I went H block crazy, and am making good progress.

This morning I’m running away to the cabin – just Sadie Jane and me.  The Hubster is in Phoenix, Jeff is working ---and I really want to be up there so as soon as I hit send on this I am packing a bag and heading out.  I’ll be back Thursday afternoon.

Catch you from there!

I hear the wind howling outside this AM. I hope your weather is more moderate as you drive to Quiltvilla. Have fun power stitching. Will Mona come over, I bet she has missed you too.
