Take Me Out To The Ballgame

Our trip to Arizona was WONDERFU, the bonus was meeting up with Darlene and Carol for lunch.  The reason we went was BASEBALL…Spring Training games.  This is something Mr.. P has always wanted to do, and being an huge Angels fan the time seemed perfect.002   The first game was against Milwaukee.  It was a bit hot that day, so we moved to the shady side!  Game two playing Cleveland, was in Tempe at th005e Angel’s home field, Diablo Stadium.   The weather was perfect that day, and we were really up close and personal with the players008 .                                                                                                                                                                 So fun watching all the kiddos and bigger fans getting autographs and talking to the players.  Here’s our skipper, Mike007 Scioscia signing autographs.  The lady you can see had a  huge notebook of baseball cards……a big fan I would say!
There was some time for sightseeing.  We visited the Casa Grande Ruins….quite an amazing place. 010  I highly recommend visiting there if you have the chance.

Somebody got in a round of golf, and I worked in some time to sew.009  I brought along a Lucky Star quilt that has been cut out since 2004……I found a picture in the box of one a friend made that had the date on it!  So I’m thinking this fabric has aged enough and is ready to be015come a quilt!  Later in the day I moved outside to our patio where we were staying……the perfect spot to sew.  That evening  I had a pile of stars ready to be trimmed.

                Back to life for us and more important visiting The Dots tonight…….we really missed them!  I also have decided to jump in and give Bloglovin a try...how about you?   Happy weekend everyone.

Looks like a great trip. You were very good getting so much sewing done. I have joined up with bloglovin the other day. Seems pretty good for keeping up with the blogs I follow. I don't think you have to paste the code they give you into a blog post just put their follow button in your side bar. You do need to claim your blog to complete the sign up process.

Sounds like a fun little holiday! I let my fabric age before I use it too!
