I’m home. I have been away. Not too far away, but far enough that I had to take my dog to the kennel.
A good friend of mine moved to Santa Barbara about a year ago and it just so happened that we both had last week free (no kids, no grandchildren, no husbands) so I drove to Santa Barbara see her new house, her the new neighborhood and sight-see around her new hometown.
In a word: FUN!
She likes to sew as much as I do, so we spent some time sewing. Spent some time seeing the sights. And, spent some time (and money) fabric shopping.
I bought some quilting cottons to make a thread-catcher bag.
We dined at The Habit, which originated in Santa Barbara.
We went to Solvang, which is a Danish Village outside of Buellton.
I bought butter cookies, but they have already been eaten – Yummy!
On the spur of the moment, we took a needlework class at this adorable quilt shop in Carpentaria.
I completed the pincushion; I just now need to stuff it and sew the opening closed.
All in all, it was a great week.
Now, I just have the laundry to finish.
