I had a business trip this weekend down to San Diego and was quite eager to get to Rosie's, which is truly one of the most amazing quilt stores I've ever seen.
I borrowed a car from and friend and made my way over there as soon as I was able. I just had to share with you some of the aisles of fabric that they have. This is a store that you really need to have a project in mind when you go there. If not, you'll be completely overwhelmed with all the possibilities!
I did buy fabric specific to the swap being handled by Barb Vedder and the baskets of Cecile in France. I also found some more fabric for the rest of the triangle gatherings project.
I saw an adorable pin cushion/pattern they were selling so while I have many more pin cushions than I need, I couldn't resist this.
Monday is the day I am flying my mom from California up to Bend to move her into her new home at the Assisted Living Facility. I think she's very excited and it's really cute to hear her gush about her excitement at starting her new life -- at 90 yrs old! Gotta love her spirit. We took her to her mobile home and thought there'd be tears and sadness at choosing what to take with her, and leaving the majority of the rest. But instead she was pretty good about selecting only her favorite things. My car is packed with her stuff... and that's IT!
I'll let you know how it goes! Fingers crossed!
Thanks to all of you who sent me such kind thoughts. Caring for elderly parents really is a difficult experience under any circumstances and I know that there are a lot of you who have devoted years to your parents. Bless you all. ;-)
