Natural Grandeur

Hello all - what a privilege i had this week... DH and i took a road trip up the northern California coast... WOW... as a newcomer to California, i knew it was beautiful, but seeing it in person - oh my...


We drove from our home near San Francisco to the quaint town of Arcata, where Humboldt State University is located, and where I had some business for the 'day job'... (the one that pays for the fabric)... We drove up the coast, and then through the AMAZING redwood forests, with gigantic trees more than 300 feet tall... nature in its most incredible display!


here's just a hint of the scenery:





It was simply fabulous, and we had a great trip! Coming home we found TWO quilt shops: Scottie Dog Quilts, in Eureka, and another shop called the Quilted Quail... that DH spotted on the road, and said 'oh honey, there's a quilt shop'!!!!! SCREECH, UTURN, CREDIT CARD...

So now we are home, only to discover that some ne'er do well thugs tried to steal DH's car while we were away, resulting in the ignition being smashed and some of the electronics all pulled out when they tried to hotwire it... good grief - we live in a fancy neighborhood with a security patrol - these were BOLD thieves!!

But it was a fabulous trip nonetheless... and the car is being repaired...

And it is Friday, and I am tired - but tomorrow there will be quilting... only two more weekends before I must finish any thing I want to enter in our guild quilting show in april... great excuse for some finishes!!

Happy Weekend, everyone!

Kate
