Another fun day

The last little bit of color in the evening sky.
It was Saturday all day and I enjoyed every minute. The morning started with Debbie and me attending the Ethnographic Market. It was a flashback for me because the market was located in the same building at the Recycle Market that I participated in last year. But I digress. Debbie introduced me to the Ethnographic Market several years ago. She and her late husband traveled extensively in parts of Africa and southeast Asia, and studied the cultures. She has enjoyed attending the Ethnographic Market because there are always items from the areas she visited. This year, the market had very little from those regions. In fact, I'd say 90-95% of the market was comprised of Native American treasures. I enjoyed the market, but Debbie was definitely disappointed. 

After we finished at the market we walked to the Plaza to a few shops. For anyone who knows these shops, Santa Fe Dry Goods and its fairly new sister store are still very much out of my budget! We went to The Shed for lunch, but the wait was too long so we went down to La Casa Sena. We sat outside in the garden, which is so beautiful from all the recent rain in the high desert. Lunch was my only expenditure today. I'm very proud of myself.

Today I'm creating quilt designs. After I dropped Debbie off at her place I came home, changed clothes, and put on a load of laundry. Then, inspired by vintage quilts and fabrics I saw Thursday and today, I sketched some designs. I don't think I'm ready for any of the elaborate designs I saw, but I'll certainly try my simplified quilt and blanket drawings.
