It’s so fun to be here in CA!

I love being here at the new shop…I love to see what has happened in the in just less than 2 months, since I was here last…I love what they have done..I love the quilts starting to hang from the ceiling…I love the fabric shelves being full of fabric! I love seeing the CA customers who are so excited that we actually built a shop in CA!

But best of all…I love seeing my students bring in their projects…I love the shine in their eyes and the smiles on their faces that this stitching brings them…there is nothing like this feeling when you know you  have taught someone something they will do probably for the rest of their lives…Lori, a new friend and student from the Road to California class stopped in yesterday with her Mom and her class project…all it needs is the binding and it was fabulous!

Busy day coming up…two classes and getting ready for the Big Grand Opening!!!IMG_2634

    You know what I love to see? It is seeing you so happy Lisa. I haven’t seen you so happy as I have this past
    year. I’ve been to your booths at Road to CA and Long Beach for several years and have bought on line many times, but you were never as happy as you have been lately. Congratulations to one of the most talented women I have ever seen. Keep up the wonderful work. You deserve to be happy.
