Part Two San Diego Quilt Show




 My week started with knit class on Monday and then I was on the road Tuesday to take care of funny little Jack while his tired parents went away on a mini vacation. I was with the little one Tuesday thru Friday hanging out. Lets just say I know why you have toddlers when your young.If I see a Lightening McQueen dvd one more time I think I'll be brain dead. I had to laugh when Little Jack called me funny Nana. I guess I can be funny to a two year old.
I drove home on Friday and was greeted by one happy Shitzu. Today I was cracking the whip on poor hubby our big T.V finally died so I had looked up a free recycling event for east county.Yea no more big over sized t.v and cabinet! There is something so not primitive as a big t.v.
Enjoy part two of the Quilt show.

The Red Barn, The Country Loft and of course our Tuesday Rug hooking group

As usual I have been bouncing around doing a bunch of stuff.Last week I went back to the Tuesday rug hooking group.I don't think I was there all summer and boy it sure was nice getting caught up with everyone.What a talented group of ladies.
 It's starting to feel like fall in California finally. Next week is the Native plant sale I can't miss that.I am slowly changing to more drought tolerant plants.My water bill is forcing me to.
 Knitting class on Mondays is a learning experience always with Athena.  Esther was back and I love her positive attitude.I sit next to Esther a retired nurse and another nice lady who was a female pastor.
 On Friday Linda suggested we drive up to the Red Barn and I was happy to be her passenger. I  took some pictures of some very cute birdhouses.
 I will get back to part two of the San Diego Quilt show next weekend...enjoy The Red Barn,Country Loft and our rug hooking group pictures.Hugs Cheri

A trip to the 2013 San Diego Quilt Show Part One

What a fun couple of hours I had at the quilt show.Jack dropped me off quickly in front of the convention center.I could hardly wait to see the show.Hubby had a great idea to take Maulie to fiesta island where Maulie had a great couple of hours too.
So enjoy the pictures of what the San Diego Quilt Show is like.This is part one.
                                                                   I loved this quilt




                                    My friend Linda's quilt is pieced together like a jigsaw puzzle


                                                     


















                 My primitive quilt looked small to me but on my wall at home it looks big!







                                   World War two patches made into a quilt
                                                  What a tribute!
         







                My late father in laws patch would be the screaming eagles the 101st airborne



                                                                I love primitive quilts


                                                                     Wow!







                                                  Even author Alex Anderson was there
