Even some Swell sewing!!!
Have a nice day my spring blossoms. I'm off to the dentist this morning. I love my dentist so I travel a bit to see him. It's already shaping up to be a sunny day and I'm taking Bret's little car so maybe there will be some top down weather this afternoon. See you later!

Behind the curtain there are a couple of rolling carts .. something has to corral all that miscellaneous stuff that previously was just in bags and jammed on top of my table. Bit by bit I'm moving stuff back in, organizing, tossing, whatever it takes. But I'm so happy here. The counter is the perfect height for cutting. I have my tv on the end you can't see. My sewing table is on the opposite wall, and the ironing board can be moved around for convenience. Anyone working in a bedroom in a 60's house knows it's a limited space.
Those of you reading for a while you'll be shocked to know I cleared off my sewing table. A while back Nicole had a little messiest table contest and I think I came in second. Not something to be proud of that's for sure.
Ok, guess I should get to work. Just a few more things to get in that room. I'm off to Elizabeth's this morning to grab some blocks for blanket stitching. Hope you all have a happy day my sewing room sweethearts.

It seemed to work perfectly no matter where I sat it, and then I couldn't stop taking pictures of it. Kind of silly I suspect.
But they all make me happy, I couldn't decide which one I liked best, so I left them all in.
Thanks Vickie, its completely cute, no matter where I put it!

A couple of weeks ago Jackie tagged me for that 7 things about me meme. Since then Anne and Cyndi have tagged me too! That does not mean though, that I'm going to do 21 things about myself. I'm not that interesting!!
The rules of the meme are:
1. When tagged, place the name of the person and URL on your blog
2. Post the rules on your blog
3. Write 7 things about yourself
4. Name 7 of your favourite weblogs
5. Send an e-mail letting those bloggers know they have been tagged
1. I can tap dance. I took tap at the Art Linkletter Tots & Teens Dance School in Concord, CA when I was in elementary school. A little van would pick me up and drop me off. As an adult, I took tap again here in Livermore through the recreation department. I love it. When I'm dancing I think about channeling my inner Gregory Hines.
2. I talk to myself.. but mostly in my own head.
3. I am currently having a love affair with Kozy Shack tapioca. Don't even ask.
4. I have a BBQ indoors in my family room.
5. Shouldn't that BBQ count for 2?
6. I compulsively recycle all kinds of paper, right down to tearing apart packaging to remove plastics or those little windowy things. I have paper recycling bags in a lot of rooms to collect the random scraps of paper. It drives my family nuts.
7. I'm alternately thrilled and extremely embarrassed by too much attention. Hard to imagine huh?
So who am I going to tag.. Chris because she tagged me for the Spreader of Love award which pleased me no end. I'm always surprised that people even read my blog!!! I'm going to tag Mary as well, we don't hear enough from Mary. I want to tag Sandy first, before she can tag me. Of course can't leave out Jen or Laurie! Ok, who else, how about Tracy. She's already frantically getting ready for market... she has time for this, right???What about Nanette? She's a lot of fun. And I think lastly, I'll tag Linda. She's a local girl and I haven't seen her in ages.
Ok, chat with you later!

And speaking of missing people, anyone who knows the UPS guy Jeremy who delivers to the shop, tell him HI for me. I miss him and his jokey ways. Today I had some emails and a call from some of 'my people' from the shop. It was nice to catch up. I do miss my peoples.

And speaking of one thing and another, have you signed up for Cyndi's newsletter? I just printed off my free pattern, and its the most adorable pdf! Scoot on over and get signed up. I can't wait for Cyndi's new book to be out, I want my own personal autographed copy. Did you see that cherry quilt???? Splendid!
Ok, my sweet little cherry blossoms, I'm off for a day with my girlie. Hope you all have a wonderful day.

Here's my haul. I've been looking for dots on white or cream, and Jane has some coming, so I'll head back then. I still long for my yellow dot on white.. I know I'm not alone.
Ok, I better go finish up getting ready and hit the road. Happy happy my peeps!

I love the dog in the little house, and the kissing couple. And cherries. You know I love cherries. And the horseshoe and the boot, so Livermore. And dice so I'll be lucky. I already am lucky, getting a Jen Duncan bracelet.
Ok peeps. I'm off to pick up Elizabeth, we're headed up to Quilter's Inn. I hear they have a load of Moda's essential dots and I need them, they're essential to the project I have perking in my brain.

Love this shot of the pier. No time for play, we have places to go, people to see.
Apple Farm photos.. I have about forty million of the flowers, I'll just share one with you. I love the coast, it's got perfect weather for pretty pots of flowers.
Speaking of thirties, I won a drawing over at Jackie's blog. You can see Jackie tailored my lovely gift, it's all my favorite colors right there. There were some chocolate covered pretzels along with this, but I couldn't wait till this morning to get a photos, Tony's life hung in the balance.. Oh, I mean, well, nevermind.
Got some Swell fabric from the Fat Quarter Shop. This is destined to be a new bag for Late Bloomer Quilts. Did I mention that I know the Urban Chiks?
Now back to work. Happy Sunday my Special Agents.

Lina G's trim shop. Oh. My! I can only hope Elizabeth's photos turnout better.
Morro Rock. We used to camp in Morro Bay when I was a kid. Looking back it seems idyllic. I'm sure it was far from that. We had a small camping trailer. Now I think OMG trapped in a little can with my family... AHHHHH.
Coming soon, more nonsense and poorly spelled posts. Darn it blogger, fix the spellchecker.

I can't help it, what an awesome name for a shop. Dirty Laundry is the (slightly) naughty half of the The Laundry Company.
This is our host Kirk (I hope I have that right) and he was a lot of fun. There is so much to look at there, and Elizabeth and I both came away with bags-o-goodies. There were some favorites of mine there, like Mr. Bacon vs Monsieur Tofu and Unicorn vs. Narwal. Hilarious.
Just down the street a tad we saw something interesting in the window of another shop. Thank goodness we had stopped!
Birds of a Feather was a beautiful store chock full of glittery goodness. I found a few things but look at that bag Elizabeth is carrying!
Ok, enough for today my friends. I'm tired. Bret and I have been on the lookout for different shows since all our regular shows are now on reruns. We've started watching NCIS, and it turns out that we're like TV junkies at night. We belly up to the TV bar and just keep asking for one more now that we have season one on DVD.
Maybe that explains the hair.
