I know, I know. It’s been a while since we’ve done a “Crafty Bits” post, and I’m starting it up again with Las Vegas?
Las Vegas was not on any of my recent must-see travel lists. I’ve been there and done that before kids, and since having them I haven’t had a burning desire to go back. But when my husband mentioned that he might have a work trip I was packed before the sentence was fully formed. It didn’t matter to me where he was going, if I could go with him and take a momcation for the first time since I became a mom almost five years ago, I was READY. Time with baby daddy was a bonus.
God bless my mother-in-law. She made it so ridiculously easy to go and relax and not worry about the girls. And when I came back she even communicated about the week using the words “if we do this again” like I hadn’t just used my one and only getaway credit EVER. God bless her. Really.
So since I was in Las Vegas for a whole week and have a really, really low threshold for both alcohol and gambling these days, I spent some time doing all sorts of other things I wanted to do.
Two things in particular that I thought crafterhours readers might like to see.
The first mission was to go fabric shopping. Some searching lead me to check out several quilt shops, and one of them was far and away the coolest. Quiltique. It’s waaaaay off of the strip, but I say that mostly because it feels so different from the strip. It’s in nearby Henderson, Nevada.
The store is owned by two sisters, a mom and a dad. Can we start with how adorable the logo is?
