My husband had work in Provo Canyon this past week so we decided to take the motor home and make a vacation of it. We only two of our children home and they were up for it. We bought them a couple of new books and left all electronics home. We spent our days hiking and reading...I finished three new embroidery patterns and a good book...The Innocent Traitor...couldn't put it down.
We spent a day at the Sundance Resort riding the tram, browsing through the shops and hiking the trails. I think Robert Redford was right...the place is magical.
Tram At Sundance
I loved this quilt....the colors and pattern were inspiring! I thinks after seeing my favorites at the Springville Art Show and now this one at Sundance I need to make a contemporary bright quilt for sure.
Redford on his horse....
"This place in the mountains, amid nature's casualness towards death and birth, is the perfect host for the inspiration of ideas; harsh at times, life-threatening in it's winters of destruction, but tender in the attentions to the details of every petal of every wildflower resurrected in the spring. Nature and creativity obey the same laws, to the same end: life."
Two girls chillin...
My Mom's favorite movie...she is the biggest Robert Redford fan.
Seriously, I don't think there is a bigger fan! I knew who Redford was before I was four. It is a gift to be able to come to his place and enjoy the beauty of it.
Gift Shop...love the jewelry! I found a "wedding ring" I want....
I love this hutch and the finish....I want to build this for my sewing corner...covered with baskets and spools.
My three Sundance troupers! After miles of hiking and reading with no electronics... they are still smiling!
So now it's time to wash the laundry and clean the house....all the while wanting to go back to the mountains. If you every get a chance to visit Sundance and the mountains that surround it...you will know what I mean....it truly is a gift!
