The days since my last posting have been flying and filled with happiness. My son had a birthday this past week and I was left scratching my head, wondering how this handsome man could be 38 years old and I still a mere sprout. Ooops...until my birthday yesterday, that is, when I found myself staring on line at the application for Social Security I am now entitled to.
Terri, my friend from TX, has come back to hang out and quilt with me. Her birthday was Tuesday, so on Monday we grabbed my long time sewing buddy and dear friend Barbara, and sailed off into the wilds of San Diego to "kill" some fabric. A great time it was!!! Lunch followed, at one of my San Diego favs...DZ Aikens, a huge Jewish restaurant and deli with fabulous food. Weight Watchers be damned!

We hit Rosie's Calico Cupboard, which Barbara tells me is the largest quilt store on the west coast. I believe it! They have a new buyer, and the selection is now including some of the modern quilting designers' fabrics, which is a happy thing to find. I found a selection of fabrics I didn't expect to find and went, well, a bit nuts over them, if you must know. I've included some photos of the evidence.
And now, back to my quilting. Thanks for stopping by!
