Morro Bay was amazing.   A bit stormy, but that only made for beautiful photos.  Here was an otter floating on his back in the bay across from where we camped.  Life is good in otter world.  We have camped in this campground for 32 years with friends.  We were all so  young way back….now we are talking about grandkids and health care!!!

Now on to bragging about my friend…(this is a distraction since I have no quilting to share! ) My friend Jan made this wonderful Hunter ‘s  Star quilt.  Years back I made one that was paper pieced, but this one is made with a new Hunter’s  Star Ruler…and then this beauty..I was so in awe013

of this quilt, I totally missed the explanation of the pattern.   I love, love, love this  quilt below.  She was one 015busy quilter!    Hold on to your hats…here’s a picture of what I worked on………….002

bibs for Little Polka Dot!!!!  He has a heard of teeth coming in and is a drooling machine, so now he has three new minky backed bibs  I just need to hammer on the snap closures.  His little brother is doing so well.  We had them here yesterday while mom and dad hosted a party at their house.  Papa and I were having our own party!    That’s a wrap for me, fingers crossed that I get some sewing done this week!  Happy week everyone.

I love Morro Bay, and that big beautiful rock!!!! My husband's Auntie used to lived there, and we got to visit often. In fact, all of his family is up that way. Love those otters. Quilts are all gorg!!
I have been enjoying my sewing room a lot too.

Glad you enjoyed yet another visit to our beautiful town. The otter's have been pretty active of late, there is even at least one pup being carted around by mama.

Love the quilts, another artsy thing I enjoy doing besides photography. I do hope you visited Cotton Ball while you were here, as Paulette said, truly one of the best.

I'm happy to say your pics made it! Morro Bay looks wonderful. Jan makes amazing quilts - I love the Hunter's Star! I really like the fabric you used for the bibs.

LOVE the otter:) Did you peek-in on the elephant seal, too? The pups should just about be ready to go out to sea. I missed seeing them this season:(

Thimbleanna said...

Oooh, I LOVE that yellow quilt! Cute bibs too -- how fun that you get to have the little polka dots sometimes. And your camping pictures are beautiful -- years ago I had a brother-in-law who always said "when I come back, I want to be an otter" LOL!
