Preparing a kit for all the fabrics I need to take to a quilt retreat with my daughter and 11 other ladies.
We leave on Thursday morning and return on Sunday afternoon. My project is called "LAGOON" designed by The Quilting Hen. Quilt will measure 61" x 64". Fabrics will be pinks and raspberry colors. I will be showing you more as time comes.
This weekend, my daughter took me to the San Diego Fair. Had a great time, the weather was very hot. Loads of people and food vendors everywhere. The above photo are French fries on a stick, sprinkled with sea salt. Very good, we shared a stick of them.
Well, I will be sending news from our retreat. Have a great week. Take time to see other projects at Patchwork Times.

Welcome to the land of the sun! I arrived on Thursday, exhausted after a long flight. It was a welcome sight to be hugged by my lovely daughter Sandra.
We have been busy with setting up sewing projects. I am a very slow sewer and Sandra is almost finished with hers. Needless to say, she sews circles around me.
Had a weekend free of cooking, Tim (SIL) took us out for our meals, This city is loaded with restaurants, it amazes me how many choices and places to eat.
On Friday, I saw my first viewing of a Road Runner. Often heard of them but never saw one. They are much larger than I expected. The bird is very attentive and walks very proudly. Sandra and I even got a front row seat to see him pick up a snail and crack the shell and then eat it. Very interesting.
Looking forward to Tuesday evening when Sandra reveals her part of the Whisper Challenge at her quilt guild. I have never seen this challenge and it will be interesting to see how this works. I hope to take photos then show them all on my blog. (if I remember to take photos, lol)
Until the next, have a happy, healthy and safe week.
