On the road again . . .

I'm leaving the family behind and meeting up with some friends for a week of sewing, shopping and fun in California.  There should be a 50 degree difference in the temperature from where I live to where I'm going, that alone is worth the trip.

I've got my sewing machine all packed and ready to go.  

(for more information about this machine case click here)

While in California I also plan to attend the Road to California Quilt Show.

If you plan on attending the show, and are familiar with my blog, you may recognize a couple of quilts in the show; 

Lifetime Quilt Number 62

quilted by Judi Madsen, aka The Green Fairy.

and Lifetime Quilt Number 73, my Red and White Tribute Quilt

quilted by Connie Lancaster at Quilts Plus in Indiapolis, IN.

This is the end of the road as far as shows go for these quilts, once they're back home they'll be on a bed or on a quilt rack with the rest of my quilts. 

I'm as confused as most of you as to where to go next with my 100th quilt project, it's not shaping up at all like I thought, a break will do me good.

No blogging for me the rest of this week, but I'm sure I'll have a lot to talk about next week!


  1. HAVE fun get inspired and don't spend too much at the show!
    Of course I can't wait to see what you bought
    and take LOTS Of pictures I want to see what is in the show and what grabbed your attention!

  2. ENJOY!! Wish I could go to California too. Hate the cold weather here. Take lots of pictures and I will be waiting to see them here.
    Have a great week.

  3. I'll be sure to look for your quilts hanging, and the ribbons that surely will be on them!! Have fun!

  4. Have a great trip! Sounds like a blast!

  5. Oh you lucky girl ! Our weather here in California has been just beautiful & in the 60's :-D Have fun at the show & takes lots of pictures

  6. I agree, some nice warm Southern California weather is perfect for the mid winter blues! Have fun!

  7. Have fun in Cali with your friends! I heard Road to California is sooo much fun! Will miss you this week, but am sure you'll get tons of inspiration at the show :)

  8. I hope to see you there.. at least I will see your quilts. I met Nicole at the Buggy Barn years ago in a Carrie Nelson class.. so I feel like I know you already.. it's a Quilter's thing! BTW SoCal is predicted to have a high of 81 degrees today.

  9. Don't have too much fun! That is quite the show. I'm sure you will come home with a bucketful of special memories with your quilting buddies!

  10. Oops, sorry about this weather we're having! Can't think of a better way to spend a rainy day than at a quilt show! Hope you're having fun! (And congrats!!)

  11. Have a great time at the show. Looking forward to hearing all about it.
