Good Morning world!
Yes, I’ve been up since 3am San Diego time, no matter how hard I tried to just roll over and go back to sleep – it was futile!
My mind started thinking on yesterday's Grand Illusion Mystery Intro release –and all of the excitement and positive feedback left me really wired, and there was no WAY to go back to sleep.
I know I’ll be paying for it again tonight.
Traveling WEST I think is much harder than traveling East.
When I consider that getting up at 5am North Carolina time in reality meant that I was on the go since 2am California time ---is it any wonder that my poor eyes were closing by 7:30pm last night??
This lovely sunrise photo was taken at the Greensboro airport ---the promise of a beautiful October day!
By 9:30 am I had landed in Atlanta!
Luckily it was a completely non-eventful day ---Get off the plane, go to next gate – next flight on time, wait to board ---
No, I didn’t get that wonderful bump to first class this time, but let me tell you a great secret – if you are on a 737, check out seat 21F!
Loads of leg room and 4 hours of hexie time ahead!
I have noticed that sitting by an exit door usually means my feet and ankles get a bit cold….warmer socks when flying! And make sure they cover your ankles, cute little socks mean cold feet!
Hello, San Diego!
Luggage accounted for and waiting for my ride at the curb!
Hello, Palm Trees!
Hello, Beautiful Birds of Paradise!
After a bit of a late lunch, I was dropped off to my hotel after 3pm. No plans were made for dinner as I was too wiped out to even think about it. I took a couple of hours nap, but it was only 5pm when I awoke –new shoes on..out the door we go! I enjoyed a beautiful walk taking in all the flowers and the trees and the crystal blue sky. And something that Southern California is famous for:
Hexie Section Complete!
I have another section that just needs the 3 top rows, neutral, red and blue added, and it too will be ready to add to the quilt. That will give me 3 out of 6 identical fill in sections done. 3 more to go! I still think I’ve got a couple year’s worth of sewing on this project before it is a complete top. I’m designing it as I go. I’m really not sure what I’m going to do outside of these fill in sections ---but that’s what keeps me interested in it! I also need to measure it against the other hexie quilt top I finished because I want them to be roughly the same size. One will go to each son in due time.
So here I am, it’s 5:30 am California time and my pick up is at 9:15.
It's a Pineapple Blossom Day with the Village Quilters of San Diego!
Looks like it will be me, hexies and a bit of tv until breakfast!
Have a great Friday, everyone!
