    Very nice Judee - I have a piece of pink like your red, light blue and black - looks like fireworks. Nice fabric.

    For a split second I was so disappointed...I love anything that has come from the ocean, I was expecting exotic shells etc.....then I quickly got over it when I saw all your lovely fabrics whoppee - didn't you do well!!

    Love the drift wood by the way, do you want to see one that I hauled home....its a full olive tree root, exposed when the lake has evaporated!!
    I have it in the garden..... :roll:

    Nice purchases. While you were in those quilt shops did you pick up a flyer about the Central Coast Quilt run they have every year. It was the weekend of the 6, 7,& 8th of June. I missed it this year because of My daughter got married on the 7th. They also do a Christmas sale with all the shops in Nov-Dec. It lists all shops in the association. Some great shops!

    Yes, beachlady,that was the Susan Branch fabric. Her shop is there and it is darling! She doesn't sell her fabric but a shop around the corner does. It was very hot,ususally so, that day and none of the shops have A/C.

    We had gone for a walk by the lake with the dog not long after moving, now we only use a small 4 X 4 suzuki, and we somehow managed to heave this up and jam it into the back, believe me it was Heaaavvvyyyy!!!

    It is full of twists and holes, which I intend to plant small cactus or alpines in!!

    Oh,Izy,they are wonderful finds. We don't see pieces this big around here. Put a nice piece of glass on top of that big one for a coffee table? thanks for sharing.

    I sure wish I had known you were going to be in Arroyo Grande. That is where I live. We could have met for a cup of tea/coffee at Cafe Andrieni. And Susan Branchs store is darling. I used to own a business in the village that is now Verena's Olive Oil Tasting. (That is not what my business was)

    You made it for our perfect weather too. It was fabulous. It is now raining, but we need that too. I'm glad you had a nice visit. Our coast is beautiful.
