Home Again, Home Again, Jiggidy Jig!!!!

We are back home after 4 wonderful days in Morro Bay. Camping with my sister-in-law and brother-in-law, longtime friends Dave and Chris and Gary and Sandy, is one of our favorite trips we take each year. Lots of catching up with each others kids and lots of talking about quilting and crafting. The guys manage to get a couple golf games in, and even my sister-in-law Jane joined them this year. John was quite impressed by how great she played. Way to represent us ladies Jane :-)!!! Here's a view from our space...pretty!!!
On Valentines Day Sandy had us over to their trailer for dessert. We had brownies, lemon bars, Mexican Heart shaped sugar cookies and Belgium wafer cookies, yummmmmy! All served on the cutest heart shaped napkins ...should of had my camera, but it was too cold to walk back and get it.

Friday was golf day, so Sandy and I visited and got our quilting talk on!! She is one creative lady and I always come home so inspired by what she is working on. Friday our friends Dave and Chris arrived with Tamales that they picked up on the way, and of course the World Famous Ball of Cheese was present!
Dave and John testing out the cheeseball!

I took some wonderful photos of the elephant seals and the sweet town of Cambria, only to find out that I must have bumped a setting on my camera and I can't download them. I hoping when Katie is home this weekend she can figure it out for me. I did get my projects done.........bindings for my friend Carol and the binding on my Christmas runner, so my January Christmas project is done! I also got February's Christmas project cut out, so full steam ahead. I am determined to make my end of the month deadline!

A great 4 days, with good friends, wonderful food and projects done!
I am one happy camper!
Hope that your week is off to a good start and I can't wait to get back to checking on what everyone has going on! Later alligators :-)!

PS-sorry for any spelling errors....bloggers spellcheck still out of service :-( !

I just found your site yesterday. I've been looking at it...I am very interested in quilting myself. I need to get going on a rag quilt in pink flannels I promised my grandaughter for her birthday. I am featuring your site as "my creative site of the day."

Looks like a fun trip. I have never visited Morro Bay, but think it sounds like a great place. Can't believe you already have started Christmas projects. Might be a good idea for me.

Love the name of your blog, Cheryl. The photos of your projects are positively inspirational. Now I have a great idea for a Christmas tablerunner.

Your trip sounded like a little slice of heaven! You really got a lot done, too! Nothing like some sunshine to make you feel better, is there? That cheeseball looks so yummy!
