Tip to other pilots: Do NOT fly with a hungry teenager. He/she will hound you to land at the closest airport with a restaurant or fill your cockpit with snack wrappers from the last airport's vending machines.
Views from the air:
We actually had to delay our return flight one day after waking up to a freak snow shower when a cool front went through.
As for sewing, I returned to working on Celtic Solstice King and found myself needing to take a quick break to finish something---anything! So I put together a Connecting Threads tote bag kit. I substituted the orangey floral middle section with a soft blue which is my favorite color. The bag is bigger than it looks and has pockets sewn to the lining. See the 2014 Quilts tab for that view.
