On our run-around afternoon, Sandi said “There is somewhere you need to go, it’s not very far – and your trip won’t be complete without it!”
She pulled into the parking lot of a strip mall…..and there it was! Rosie’s Calico Cupboard!
I have a “previous” connection to Rosie ---I was a guest on one of her radio shows a couple years ago. We talked and talked like wild fire! I was so excited to finally get to meet her in person. Unfortunately she wasn’t in this day --- they had a recent death in the family and she was busy with family things. But I left her a verbal note with the staff, and I hope get get to catch up to her another time.
This is a WONDERFUL shop! Those who get to visit regularly, or live the area and have easy access --- do NOT take this for granted! Oh my heavens….the class room space alone is more than fabulous!
Jan Krentz!” OMGoodness!! I was face to face with a real Quilt Rock Star! How fun to talk to her and cross paths in a wonderful place like Rosie’s!
Yesterday was a BUSY BUSY day. We had a Scrappy Trips workshop in El Cajon, then drove to Chula Vista for a lecture there --- and then back to San Diego after that. Today we are planning a power walk on the beach --- and then we are off to Mission Viejo for my guild meeting with the Beach Cities Quilt Guild tonight – I’ll be there a couple days before I move on again. My time in California is moving so fast!
When I get a chance, I have workshop pics to upload so stay tuned for that ---
Enjoy your Thursday, Everyone!
