Gettin' Jiggy Wit It...

...this skirt, that is:

Kim helped me pick out and lay out the design on my thrift store skirt to transform it into something totally unique! How fun was that?!
Memorial Day Monday, my family went up to Tent Rocks National Monument - a short drive from Albuquerque, out near Cochiti Lake. Why, oh why, had we never gone there before? It was absolutely stunning - this was at the end of the hike going up and up and up:
This was the view along the way up, and then down again:

In store news, we're putting a lot of fabric on sale for ONE WEEK ONLY starting this SATURDAY, JUNE 6 (does this look like a commercial for a car dealership?). We need/want to order more fabric, but need to clear out some of the current bolts. So come on down - this is an offer you won't want to miss! ONE WEEK ONLY!

And the title - Gettin' Jiggy Wit It - was a song I recently downloaded onto our IPod Shuffle, by Will Smith. I'm groovin' to it lately....

Wow. I've never been there either. I should go, but I'm not big on wilderness and snakes and all that.

Skirt looks cute. What did you use on there?

Robyn -
There were lots of warnings about watching out for rattlesnakes along the path - we didn't see any, though! (some other hikers also said they'd seen tarantulas on the rocks on previous hikes - not something I'm too fond of!)

oh, and the skirt - I appliqued an Amy Butler scrap (can't remember the line offhand), using Heat Bond double-sided adhesive, then stiched around to tack it down further. Easy and fun!
