But let me degress and tell you of my summer months - best quilting summer ever!
The first week of vacation myself and three friends participated in the Central Coast Shop Hop, 11 stores with food, prizes, and fabric. We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Grover Beach (free breakfast and coffee) and traveled as far south as Ventura and started in Paso Robles. We added a few of our favorite stores, love Creation Station in Buellton, so I believe our final count was 19 stores in three days. Yes, we were tired but each store was so unique. This shop hop features a complete quilt pattern from each store on the hop and this year, they were available online in advance of the hop so you could concetrate on your selections. Here is a link to the patterns: http://www.quiltshopsofthecentralcoast.com
Two stores were closing down, The Treasure Hunt in Carpenteria and The Fabric Quarter in Goleta, both awesome stores that will be missed, so there were some great bargains to be had.
I won one of the baskets (a styrofoam ice chest) filled with fabrics, books, patterns, and notions. First time ever!

Wow, my days are flying by and I have not been posting my work. I finished a tote I started for my "artsy" sister and want to share the link. This is nice and large and will be perfect for her to carry her student's art homework back and forth to class. My sister is an instructor at FIDM. I made the bag with brights and geometrics to add color to her day. Hope she likes it!
Below is the link. The pattern is very well written.

I was going to make these for Christmas gifts but since I only had one week to make 7 gifts I decided I would be the only one receiving this ! :)
