Shop Hops!

South Bay Shop Hop was a lot of fun. Stores I have never been to before. I like the charm bracelet idea -- each store gave out a charm to add to a necklace or bracelet. Really cute. I will post a picture of the charms once I get them on a bracelet. Here are some pictures of the stores.

The weather was perfect for running all over the area and collecting charms. We ate fabulously, too and even drank a bit of spirits. MMMMOjitos on the beach in Capitoloa, it doesn't suck.

Finally got to check out Santana Row, in San Jose, which was a trip. Felt like Rodeo Drive, even saw a bright yellow Lamborghini. And shoes that cost more that one months rent on my first apartment, more than a plane ticket to Hawaii. yikes.

Also managed to work on the jellyfish quilt, in between shopping, eating, drinking and chatting, so hopefully I will have it done this week before the class. More pictures to follow.
Au Revoir

Peeps quilt

Peeps quilt, originally uploaded by kristin.jenny.

I got the Peeps quilt back from Quilter's Studio, where Lori did her usual lovely quilting job. I really love the swirls around the two peeps in the center. And, then, lucky me to have Tracy hand stitch the binding!! Woo Hoo!! Now I just need Easter to roll around again and I am all set.

Ryokan block 2

Ryokan block 2, originally uploaded by kristin.jenny.

Just so you don't get the idea that my life has been an endless stream of work, graduation parties, work, birthday parties,work and whipped cream games, I actually DID manage to sew last night. Yay. I made block 2 of the awesome Ryokan block of the month. I love those Cherrywood fabrics, and the Japanese Lecien, too. I love Thimble Creek!!

Kaity shows off her mad skills at whipped cream toss. 8 years of education put to good use.
