Everyone looks great! Brings back happy memories of first meeting in France. Nice weekend for you.


What a wonderful way to celebrate the New Year - good friends, fun, stitching, and the beach. Thanks for sharing your trip. Hope you have warmed up. It is still cold here in the Northwest.

Certainly nice to hear you had such a great trip to the west. Don't you just love Santa Barbara? We don't get there often enough, but sure do enjoy it when we do.


Thanks for sharing images of your trip to California. That ocean water must have been exceptionally chilly !
I have a question about your 'thrift & scrapping ' photo - the appliqué piece - with the bands of brown connecting the flowers - were these bands meant to be cut and then the flowers & leaves sewn onto fabric or was the piece intended to be used whole? Thank you and I truly enjoy your blog!

Sounds like you had a wonderful time with wonderful friends. Looks like some fun creating too. Isn't that area of California fantastic. Sorry the weather was cold. Happy Weekend.


I went to CA for the first time with my husband on a business trip in the spring a couple of years ago. I'm thinking it's going to be spring in California! Wonderful weather! Ahhh....froze. Wore everything in my suitcase plus bought more thick tights besides. Oh well, the rest of your trip looks delightful!!
