And away we go !!

A really dear friend of ours turned 70 last weekend...this was a party we didn't want to miss! So off we went down to San Diego energy drinks in hand ! It was held at the La Fayette Hotel ... it's been recently renovated an I must say it was breathtaking. This little room was for  afternoon tea and evening cocktails...don't you love the parasols on the ceiling? Cute!

A great time was had by all at the party !!!
On the way home Disneyland was calling our name...and we answered!
Cars Land was awesome ...crowded, but worth it.

Enjoy the pictures...
Here's the lobby. Love the old photos to the left.

Radiator Springs!

We were really impressed. Just like Walt Disney said, the park will never be done.  This new addition is going to be so popular. They managed to make you feel like you're part of the movie.
Loved this flower bed!!! The centers are tail lights!

The Cozy Cone Motel!

I  loved the Cozy Cone motel in the movie. They did a great job re-creating it for the looked great at night! Oh and by the way, even the drinks are served in traffic cones! Really cute!

Have a great week!

I had always planned on making a quilt with these fabrics , but you know how that goes. These aprons are really fun and pretty quick to putt together!
This is my French inspired one...

Boy, Summer is flying by!! We just got back from a little get away to Lake Tahoe...nice to escape the heat !!
Since it's just to stinking hot to go out I've been doing some stitching. Catching up on all my shows and lounging around with projects isn't so bad...

Hope everyone is enjoying the dog days of Summer !!


I had planned to make a Summer quilt with these fabrics but never got around to it. I'm kind of glad because it was so fun creating this craft apron... reminds me of Hawaiian punch !
Here's my attempt at modeling ! What you don't see in the picture is Oliver rolling around at my feet. He thought it was so funny that Mommy was taking a picture of herself !


Here's the front...I did tons of French Knots for the lei.

Someone was naughty !

It's a little too hot for Oliver to play outside, so he's decided to work on a craft project ! Just happened to be our comforter...I guess it's a good excuse to go shopping!
