at trip to california

Thanks for all the sweet comments on my pillow for The Pillow Talk Swap!! They were all so uplifting!!

It feels as though I've been away from all my dear friends forever!! I just got back late Friday evening from California, and I have to say, I L O V E sunny California!! We had such a fun filled vacation, and even got a little business in, by stopping by Lecien and meeting all the wonderful staff there. And yep, I got to pick up some lovely fabric!!

Here are a few highlights from our trip~

Camping in the Redwoods!

a little nature walk!

a day at the coast!

fun in the river!

visiting san fransisco!

an afternoon at lecien! I was able to meet katie the sales rep, and pick out lots of fabric! oh, it was such fun!!

everyone was sooo sweet and even gave my little guy this sweet little christmas gnomie from the holiday happy collection (will be in my shop by the end of the month) by the very sweet monica! he was sooo excited! can you tell? i think i was just as excited. :)

here is what I picked up~ some of the flower sugar!

a plethora of polka dots!

i even scored a little bit of all the carmel town to make some fat quarter bundles!! love, love LOVE!!

mmmm!! look at all those strawberries!

the cutest little prints from the hokuou collection, also for some fat quarter sets!
