Last weekend, the USS Frankenbatt cruised into San Diego Diego celebrate my mom’s 87th birthday.
We had a great time and, like all vacations, diets sometimes fall by the wayside… there was some of this…
A trip to the Whaley House in Old Town where it was rather disappointing that these were only for display…
A fun quilt shop find in Solana Beach…
With a small smackeral of fabric that came home with me (souvenirs, right?)
I also got the very exciting news that I won this wonderful Maywood bundle in the Project Quilting Challenge drawing!
I have a longer cruise coming up… my husband and I are traveling to…. wait for it…AUSTRALIA! So I needed a hand project for all those sitting times and I ordered a fabric kit for Violet Craft’s EPP lion pattern. I was really impressed with this kit from Fabric Bubb.
All the fabric was already set up in color order which made the swatch process easy… right up until I tipped the whole thing off my lap. I’ve got all my pieces in bags by color and now need to get them basted as I can’t take my scissors on the plane with me.
So, with 496 things to do, I’m still excited to see what tomorrow’s project quilting challenge will be.
Are you playing along?
