I don't know where to start. It's been a very eventful week!
My old friend Bonnie Hunter was teaching at Asilomar this week and she was able to fly in a couple of days early and spend some time together at my house. We had a blast. The weather wasn't great but we managed nevertheless to enjoy the time.
On Thursday, when it was really pouring, we decided to pamper ourselves (did I need much convincing?? NO NO NO) and we went to my favorite local place for massages and then an outdoor hot tub!! WOOHOO!!
Many of you know that I have extremely curly hair and I've recently been having it blown straight about once a week. Well, I wasn't about to let that rain curl my hair so... picture this... we are out in the hot tub, pouring rain, and there I am with a SHOWER CAP on!! Anything to preserve the hair, right??!! Good thing there were no cameras!! It was a sight to see.
We had lunch when Bonnie first arrived in the charming little beachside town of Capitola. There are these adorable houses with the most beautiful colors...
Bonnie was hard at work with her blog posts and her hexies while I was busy working on my basket creation! It's almost done..
I'm happy to report that I dug into my orphan block piles and found several blocks that are at least 15-20 yrs old and incorporated them into this project! I am shaking my head wondering WHY I couldn't have just made 16 blocks that matched each other in pattern and size... UGH. I guess that's just not my personality... if only...
Sadly I wasn't able to take Bonnie down to Asilomar myself as we had tickets to see Elton John in Las Vegas and my other dear old friend Claire offered to take Bonnie there.
I'll post pictures from Vegas... there were quilting patterns everywhere!
