Has anyone noticed that I have not been posting my stash reports? Well ... I have taken a short break from them, and promise to catch up in a couple of weeks. Although I haven't been posting by week, I have been keeping track of what I use, and have purchased no fabric in the last couple months ... Yep, you read that correctly! Haha!!!
I finally got to quilt one of my own quilts a couple weeks ago ... Remember this from last year? I made it over the summer while my daughter was home recouping from pneumonia.

Yes I have been longarming ... I did this customer quilt last week ...
Anybody want a beagle?!! Haha
Well hello! Happy Monday to you ... Last Friday we started a minor kitchen project. After living here for 23 years, we are replacing our countertops.
And here's the stuff we need every day ...
Today we have cement board and a sink ...
I have been sewing and loving it ... But I can't show you what I'm working on ... It's top secret for now!
My baby turned 21 yesterday ... She has been studying in Greece for 5 weeks and came home just in time to celebrate! I love her and am so proud of her!

Aacckk ... How has a week gone by? Ok ... I am not even going to apologize again! My hubby works for the school district and he is home during the summers ... Enough said, correct? He is really just a large child and has many plans for his time off ... Many of these projects seem to have my name on them too ... Brother!!
Did some sewing yesterday on a mystery quilt I am teaching in August ... Of course it's a mystery, but I can share this with you ...

Hi all ... We were on vacation last week to the Seattle/Tacoma area and to Victoria, B.C. We had visited Victoria when the kids were young and realized it was someplace we needed to return and spend some time. While we enjoyed the scenery in WA, the area is being hit by a heat wave and it was just too hot for me! Sorry we are pampered San Diegans spoiled by a near perfect climate!
We spent 3 days in Victoria and had such a good time! We left our car in Port Angeles and relied on just walking around Victoria on foot. The weather was beautiful ... Cooler than San Diego and they claimed it was hot for them. We stayed at the lovely Empress Hotel.
We spent lots of time just walking and sightseeing ... I did a little shopping .... I did see a quilt store, but I honestly cannot think of buying any more fabric right now! I have been doing some journaling and planning in a calendar, basically scrapbooking. I found a couple of really nice paper/stationery stores that had lovely things that you don't see so much here. Came home with a little loot ... I'll show you a peek from one of the stores ...
I am trying to play catch up from being gone, but didn't want you all to think I had forgotten you! I'll be back later with more of my travels ... I have more to share! And also catch you up to date on what I have been sewing.
In the meantime I'll leave you with this sweet picture of my granddaughter ...my son has had 3 weeks of visitation, and after this week, they go to 3 times a week, but still supervised by mom ... Weird I think, but that is the way it is done. He is really enjoying finally being able to see her ... It warms and melts my heart.
