Quilting Away!

Last night my son and my daughter in law took us to dinner at 'Super Mex". A local mexican restaurant chain in Long Beach. We had a great time.

Today and any other day that I am in waiting mode, I have my "Hexie Kit" to work with. I have made four rosettes since we started on this trip.  you can see them at the top of the picture.

I am hoping to have at least 10 rosettes done by the time I get home . . . which will be in 2 weeks!

Everyone keep on quilting!!

Arriving in California

Aveli's Quilts & General Store http://avelisquilts.blogspot.com/
We arrived in Fullerton California at 6:30 a.m. this morning and was greeted by my husbands cousin and his wife. They took us to breakfast and we caught up on all the latest family news.

Then we went to our sons house and waited for him and family to get home.

Meanwhile, I worked on my hexie project. I made two rosettes made on the train and I am sure I will get more finished while we are here.

keep on quilting!

Riding the Train

Riding the train is such an adventure. You never know what you are going to see or who you are going to meet.

There is the couple who is traveling with their young daughter and the man's mother.  Behind us is a family going to Disneyland. one family brought their lunch, but they will be going to the dining car for dinner. Another family makes several trips to the snack bar.

In the car ahead there is an amish or mennonite couple.  I really can't tell the difference, but they are dressed in traditional garb.  There is the two Japanese students who are speaking in their native language and some people speaking in Spanish. There is a man who is wearing a silk top hat.

There are people hailing from almost every part of the U.S.

Very interesting!
