Greetings from Tucson, Arizona!

Greetings from Tucson!  It took 14 hrs to get here yesterday but it was worth it.
Today a colleague of mine and I went to the Desert Museum.  Gorgeous.
Holy cow there are a lot of cacti.  The stereotypical cactus is called the saguaro.
The only sewing related thing I've got is my corduroy jacket, which is Simplicity 2508.  You can see the funky lining peaking out as I hold up my hands.  Also I have to make a better hat.  It looks ridiculous.  Really.  Sorry Eddie Bauer.  I look like a 5 year old wearing my dad's hat.

Love how you can see me in the side mirror of this shot, wildly snapping pix of cacti.  I've never seen so many cacti before.  SO MANY.
View from my room at the hotel:
Can you see the mountains in the background?

Meg, we went to the French cafe this morning that your sister recommended.  It was FAB.  Delicious crepes.  I also got the French toast.  Yum!  Plus being on east coast time meant we got to beat the rush.
Tmw is the first day of workie at U of Arizona for a week.   I always enjoy visiting other campuses. 
Be well and good night!


  1. Hope you're having a great time in Tuscon - the view from the hotel looks amazing! Have a great week :)

  2. Great photos! Have a marvy time.

  3. I'm glad you are enjoying Arizona! I am enjoying your pictures! Enjoy yourself, and travel safely home.
