Last week, went to Las Vegas to go to a wholesale buyers show for the store. It was a pretty small show so we had time for a little site seeing.
Here’s a bad photo out of our hotel room. I know it’s desert in Las Vegas, but the dryness of the landscape is such a change from north west Montana.
We decided to go to Hoover Dam and it has really changed since the last time we were there. They have built a very tall bridge over the Colorado River which is the dividing line between Nevada and Arizona. The bridge is built to accommodate pedestrians so we walked across it. I don’t like heights much but survived.
This is a photo of Hoover Dam looking down from the bridge. It is a massive structure. It was built in the 1930’s.
This is the bridge that we walked over. It is a good thing I didn’t see it from this perspective before I walked across it. It’s another impressive feat of engineering.
Here I am in the bowels of the dam in front of the generators.
This photo is taken looking down towards the river. I liked the juxtaposition of the different textures, natural and man made.
After I got home, we had our monthly surface design meeting. We did some ice dyeing and made fiber art cards. The photo above shows two different cards. They need some stitching. I am trying to decide between machine and hand stitching.
Two more designs.
And the last two. I will show these again once they are stitched. Please go over to the Felting and Fiber Studio to see my post about ice dyeing.
