 I thought I share some pictures taken last year on our tour.  We were so fortunite to have been able to go before all the chaos that happened earlier this year.  I aften think about our tour guide and how is doing. We had such fun and met such nice people from all over the world.  We spent a lot of time on the river boat floating down the Nile.  Up early and out to see the temples before it got really hot.  Very relaxing-time for afternoon tea and a nap.  Hope you enjoy.

I was looking through some pictures taken in France several years ago and ran across these.  Taken two days before Halloween during our Country Roads of France tour.

Decorations are out, I'm officially ready for fall.  Today is really warm--yesterday it was cold and we had liquid sunshine.  What a differenc a day makes.  This is typical fall weather for Santa Cruz, so I am going to enjoy it while it lasts.  Not looking forward to winter, the older I get the colder is seems.  Everyone enjoy your week
Thanks everyone for the comments on my fabulous fabric.  The quilt is officially in the beginning stages.  I cut out and put together my first 58 squares.

New fabric, for new quilt.  This fabric feels like satin to the touch, but 100% cotton.  Just love the black and cream.  It was so hard to cut into this fabric. It took me hours to decide how I was going to use it.  Finally have a quilt game plan.   I have finished my first 29 31/2" squares.

Finished 2 quilt tops in the last couple of weeks. The one above is easy and can be sewn in about 45 minutes.  It takes a while to cut but if you get the fabric already cut into 21/2" strips it goes really fast. I used flannel, three different colors 1 yard of each color.  The back will be finished with green and white flannel.

This quilt top was cut out about 1 year and a half ago.  It only took me a short while to sew it together.  Again, a real easy pattern.  I wish I could say I AM A QUILTER!  Not so,  just having fun doing my thing.  I sew to relax.  It's my world...........I love to create.
