Looking back as some of our travel pictures.  Guess I'm hoping to do some more traveling in the near future.  This picture was taken in Quebec, Canada.  I took a lot of pictures of windows and doors.  I especially like the hanging plants.  This was taken on our Fall Foliage trip in October.

One of my favorite photos of the beautiful windows and doors in Italy.  I am longing for a trip back to this little village along the coast.  I just might make this photo into a piece of fabric and put it on a tote bag.

Small zipper tote.  Just a fun way to show off Marilyn.  Little pit of cherries for the lining.

This is the tote I made from the canvas printed on fabric.  The lining is the same color as the green in the background in the print.  Fun little project and so simple. Sun is shinning and it looks amazing outside.  Enjoy your day.

I painted this picture in 2011.  I finally decided I needed to do something with the painting.  I took the painting and put onto a canvas type fabric.  I sewed it onto black and cream ticking and will make it into a tote bag.  I am now out to enjoy the sunshine and take some pictures.  I am getting an early start on my weekend.  Have some fun.

Have the borders around the jelly roll quilt top that I did a couple of week ago.  I finally found the fabric that I thought worked.  Ready to now put it together.  I just may do several more of these to give as gifts.  Quickest quilt top I have ever made.

This is my grandson, Sean taking his first ride on the104 year old Looff Carousel.  It was placed in service in August 1911 at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk.  It is really beautiful.  I remember riding this when I a child and it is so amazing to have my grandchildren still riding on these horses.  
It was a beautiful day to take a walk along the boardwalk and enjoy all the smells I remember as a child.  Candy, popcorn, hot dogs, peanuts, cotton candy and all the new foods.  It ever in the Monterey Bay area stop by and see the  Santa Cruz amusement--it's free.
