Adventures of the Sewing Machine Kind in Long Beach, CA, a small look back.

This is one of my first 'art quilts' read fun quilt, made in Santa Clara, CA.

Greetings from foggy Rancho Palos Verdes, CA.
It has been rainy and foggy here off and on lately.

We're here for a while, no plans, just to explore. 
Will I get back to Folsom, I don't know.

I'm going into Long Beach today for sewing machine parts to get the resident sewing machine here up and running. That's east of here, up and over the coastal hills. The sewing machine shop is supposed to be a big one with fabric and classes etc. Long Beach SewVac .

I decided to look through my photos of projects made in Folsom, Ca.  The top art quilt, 'Morning Song' I made while we were living in Santa Clara.
It's fun to look back, inspiring. 

I ask myself, Why do you make quilts? Is it a hobby or what?
Maybe I need to get a job at this sewing store selling sewing machines.
Change of pace?

Have a great day. I'll be by to visit and see your projects.
