We have seen lots of fabulous Halloween decorations...lots of fun. Even tried candy corn!
Yesterday we were very fortunate to share shopping and a class at Holly Hills Quilt Shop with Bonnie Sullivan and Kathy Schmitz. They are such lovely generous ladies and we had a ball. Loz was like a star struck schoolgirl meeting her idol, Kathy...she forgot all about us and headed off with her new BFF! Oh well, infatuations come and go, we knew she'd come back to us...eventually!
Poor Kathy is still recovering from the reaction Lea and I had to seeing a squirrel(complete with nut in mouth...very cute!) for the first time...it is hard to concentrate on driving when two silly Australians are screaming.."OMG it's a squirrel" ...and Loz is trying to cope with being a front seat passenger ON THE WRONG SIDE OF THE ROAD...thanks Kathy for being so gracious and understanding!
The workshop was so much fun...we have made journal covers! Their new book is fabulous and I think we have depleted the shop supplies.
Today has been spent exploring this beautiful city...
Saturday markets, Museum of Contemporary Craft, Powells bookstore, a bit of retail therapy (soft orange leather gloves) and then a trip on the cable car...a slightly nervous but VERY GOOD friend conquered her fears and came with me...how good is she?
Other highlights have included me learning to "talk" American...apparently I "talk" funny! I can now be understood by the locals to a certain degree...Loz even heard me say "thank you very MURCH"...OMG I have turned into Elvis!
Enjoy the snaps, I will keep posting as we have access!
