Yes, I have been missing in action for more than a week now. We just got back this evening from a trip to California. Our final destination was the International Quilt Festival in Long Beach, where the Twelve by Twelve quilts were being shown. But we had some great adventures on our way there, including California Missions and the Monterey Bay Aquarium and Hearst Castle, just to name a few. I will be back with photos and stories in the days to come, but tonight I just wanted to check in and explain my absence before I fall, gratefully, into my own cozy bed.
P.S. I just had to add this picture, stolen from Gerrie, of me, Gerrie, Karen and our sponsor, Del. I thought it really showed how happy we all were that day. Giddy, almost.
