We stopped for a day in Rapid City, SD, and drove through Badlands National Park east and then turned around and did it again west. It is an amazing place featuring sharp peaks, deep gullies, grasslands, bison, bighorn sheep and much more. One thing we thankfully didn't see were rattlesnakes, except on the many warning signs. Since I haven't been able to sew for this month of travel, I could only think about it. Below are some photos that remind me of things I do when I make quilts.

|Mc Tavishing - sort of|
|Variety of textures|
|Edging of white clay washed off the rocks above|
|Jelly roll stripes|
|I never would have seen this interesting formation if |
it hadn't been darker than the light shale around it.

Sew happy stitches this week. Try some from Mother Nature's album.
