Summer Fun

It's been crazy around here this past couple of weeks. My Mom and brother were just here for a week. They had a great time going to the beach and LegoLand, and checking out a few of San Diego's best attractions. We played cards every night, to hours that are just too late for a girl who has to go to work the next day. It was so much fun to have them here, and I was sad to see them go. But school starts on Monday, and the kids needed a little re-entry time after vacation, so they left last Saturday for their return to Memphis. I'll see them again later this year, since I am going home for Christmas. It'll be my first time home for Christmas since college, which seems ridiculous. In fact, I was convinced it was wrong, but I was corrected by everyone in the family!!!

There are still a few weeks of summer left here in CA before the kids go back to school, so Disneyland, Sea World, and Universal are packed full of people. I'm still waiting for things to slow down, so that I can make my visit to Universal. Summer goals, you know! So, in the meantime, I'm just working on a bunch of projects, both knitting, quilting, and organizing.

This week's fun was all about teaching : I'm in San Mateo this weekend teaching Fire Island Hosta. Next week, it's at Annie Star Quilt Guild in Chico on Thursday and Friday, followed by Cotton and Chocolate in Thousand Oaks on Saturday and Sunday. So, crazy schedule this week and next.

And there is always the summer fun of sewing. I've managed to get a bunch of little things done....bindings on a bunch of things, some new placemats, and almost finished with Vintage Compass, I'm excited to get out of summer and back to cooler temperatures, where sewing is much more enjoyable (and much less hot).

Well, that's it for summer fun around's back to the grind on Monday, as we start getting ready for fall market....
