Hello! From Rancho Palos Verde.
Where it's sunny, warm and the Pacific Ocean sparkles.
We drove to Oakland, CA last week for my son's wedding. The ceremony was wonderful, held in the beautiful St. Jarlath Church. What a great way to start a marriage. It was fun seeing and visiting friends and relatives and it was all over too soon.
On the drive home I got to visit The Creation Station Fabric & Quilt Shop , in Buellton, Ca. I enjoyed their sample quilts and they specialize in quilt retreats. I bought some already made Yo-Yo's, the owner's grandma makes them and they're well made! I've sewn them together and they're just the cutest thing.
This week I've been making half square triangles for borders for my new sample improv design quilt,
'Uneven Thirds.' I got the idea for the border from one of Jordan Fabrics' YouTube tutorials in which Donna made a similar border. Their tutorials are full of good ideas and exciting color use.
That's the news from the rancho, where I'm remembering to be thankful.
Have a good week and I'll be by to visit.
