A Weekend Visit

I spent the week preparing a gift for our daughter for her birthday. I couldn't show it before now, in case she popped over to the blog for a visit.

Last week, I purchased this box from World Handcrafts, a quilt/handcraft shop in Reedley.

Originally, the interior looked like this:

I lined the top and the bottom with red velvet, and filled it with the Christmas ornaments I've collected for her over the years. I also added her stocking on top. In my mind, it is truly a treasure chest, full of memories.

I also made this birthday card for her...

Here is the birthday girl, with her husband...

The picture was taken just before we hopped in the car to go to San Francisco to see...

We also saw some Eggheads. What are they doing in San Francisco? I thought they lived on the UCDavis campus!

I know, I was in San Francisco. You can see everything there. But I have to say that the craziest, most head-scratching thing that I saw had to be the cactus fountain, two blocks from the bay.

Do people who live on the water REALLY dream about the desert? I always thought it was the other way around.

And there you go, that's our weekend in a nutshell.

P.S. Thank you so much, to all of you who have been so complimentary about my Hoffman. I am thrilled that it seems to be as well-received by you as it is loved by me. yay!!!

Great quilt! It fulfills my desire for any quilt - lovely to look at from afar and another kind of lovely up close. You done good! Love, Del-w/cranky computer.
