Good Day Quilters!

The sun is out today here in San Diego.  It is still a bit chilly with some "full of moisture" clouds in the sky, but lots and lots of clear blue to be seen.  We've had a rainy weekend; not nearly the rain count the weather folks predicted -- enough though to make driving in it and doing things a bit messy.  We did brave the weather for a great dinner out at Poehe's on Coronado Island just outside downtown San Diego last night.  DH had an Ahi dish and I had Swordfish.  Of course we had their house salad which is really one of the best on their "too hard to choose from" menu.  We don't go there too often, only on special occasions, so making a selection is quite difficult.  Do you go with one that you've had before knowing its the best OR do you try one you've not had and end up with more than one favorite?  I'll leave it for you to decide what DH does and what I do...

Since I said I'd lock myself in my sewing room on Friday until I got much of my two due this month UFOs done...I didn't do as I said DARN!  I did a bit of sewing but household errands took precedence and their when the time for sewing.  Saturday had me going in other directions too.  Boo Hoo!  So today is my chore day and I will be in the sewing room after this post working on this:

I did find time to get the labels, yes three different ones onto 2008 Kruisin' Kwilt.  First I stitched on a block that was made that didn't make the front.  Then I have a list of all the participating quilt shops that year along with the event name and dates and finally the events logo that is an iron on transfer compliments of Rosie's Calico Cupboard (you just gotta love Rosie's generosity).  This last label with the logo also has my logo, name of quilt, it's size, date made, and where along with name of quilter (Kerry's Quilting of course) and her address.  Sounds like a lot of information, but it all fit in not too much space.  Oh forgot to mention the label with the participants also mentions the block design they provided.

The restaurant thing - I usually go with something not tried and true - I like stepping out of my comfort zone. I think I have more indecision on breakfast items - to go simple, complex, over the top while watching out for the big calories.

We love Coronado Island - son and daughter-in-law live in FallBrook and she is a Navy Commander at Balboa. So we love going there when visiting.

Sounds as if your Kruisin quilt label is going to be wonderful.

Sound like you have been very busy. Hope you have tomorrow off and can sew.

Your quilt area is so neat & organized! That is a really pretty quilt. I particularly like the streaking star block. I don't think I've ever seen it before.

When we go out to eat, I get something I can't make myself, but I don't go too far out of my comfort zone.

Love the new block and your fabric choices. Looking forward to seeing it finished! Label turned out great for the Krusin' Kwilt.
