Mom’s visit

With the arrival of spring comes spring break and mom’s annual visit.  

Here are munchkin and I waiting for mom at the airport.

It worked out this year that the local festival and the quilt show was the same weekend that she came in.  So the quilt show Quilts By The Bay was our first stop (not counting going by thhouse to drop off her suitcase and have lunch).  

As always the quilts were exquisite.  My favorite was titled All Souls Night and included some beautiful beadwork.

Here’s a slideshow of some of them:

The quilt show also has a garage sale room.  Mom came back with a few fat quarters and and couple pieces of yardage for $1.75. Plus theyvwere giving away hard cover books with every purchase.   I found a few pieces as well with my total being $4.75.  

Monday entailed lunch at the Mexican placecwe like, a vist to my local farmers market, and a visit to the LQS to supplement the prior days purchase. 

Tuesday was a trip to the aquarium and an early dinner. 

Today I  cut out the pieces for mom, and she is busy sewing them together on my Featherweight. 

She flies home tomorrow and munchkin will be sad.
