We had a great time in Santa Barbara,GO GAUCHOS!!
met Kim down there and got the younger one all set for school. We got him the coolest orange beach cruiser and checked out some great restaurants and stuff. We took a side trip to Ventura and ventured into "Superbuzzy" headquarters!! Kelly was soooo nice, and let us wander the warehouse of her online store that specializes in Japanese fabric and other Japan-abilia like HELLO KITTY. We shopped, shopped, left for lunch, came back and shopped more. Sweetie was very patient. We got some luscious loot.

L.A. was our last stop, where we met up with older son, had some delicious food and went to the mall for some apartment and college essentials. His apartment is perfect for him, little kitchen, balcony, close to the bars (WHAT??) well, he is 21. . .
OK, so here is what has been on and off the machine since the last post:

Here is Kim's blue and orange quilt, very bright and happy.

I also did an ABC's quilt for Gina, but forgot to snap a pic.
And, here is what I have been working on, on the design wall - a memory quilt made from calendar year tea towels, a commissioned quilt from my Aunt for her mother. It will be two sided when done. A great way to preserve the towels and see them all out at the same time.
Cooking has been kept to a minimum, given the sinus infections, but when we did feel better, we made cookies. Princess cookies with our little princess.
