River kayaking in Arizona

It has been at least 20 years since we have been to Arizona. This past weekend, in fact three whole days and nights, we spent in Phoenix and it was just beautiful. Hot and sunny. The best part is that my allergies disappeared for the three days we were there. They are back now and I can see why so many people with allergies choose to stay there for the Spring.
The highlight of our mini-vacation was a kayaking excursion down the Salt River. I have just been learning to kayak here in Canada on the longer kayaks with skirts and pedals. The ones we took down the Salt River were ocean going kayaks (go figure) and were simple, stable and loads of fun. We even did rapids! Too much fun!
Tomorrow I am spending the day in my studio! I should be cleaning my house... but why?

Dear quiltfriend,
My sister is, after an exiting period, finaly pregnant of her first baby.
Now I would like to make a bright-colored quilt for her and her baby
of patches from all over the world. I try to collect scraps of 12x12 cm (5x5 inch).
Do you have a piece of fabric that may be suitable, perhaps you would sent it to me.
I would really like to use it!

Many thanks and warm greetings,
