Empty Spools Seminar, the next chapter...

It is not without some melancholy that I visit Monterey Bay.  Reminiscing about my parents and their adventures sailing these waters.  For those who are more recent to the blog, mom had a heart attack at 81 yrs old while in a sailboat race on this very bay...and, although I didn't intend for my Story Quilt to be about my family on the bay, that is exactly what evolved!

HH was living and stomping around Asilomar when we met...but they didn't have these wonderful boardwalks!

There were many Quilt Celebrities but these 2...well...looks like trouble, lol
Del Thomas and Freddie Moran 

Mary Lou was a trooper...keeping us laughing and creating.

First let me apologize for the quality of some of the photos...they were photos of slide show pictures....far away and it was hard to hold the camera still :) with all the ooohhhing and ahhhhing.  I also want to make it clear...Hoochy blocks are not paper pieced!  It requires you to sew outside your box and although they didn't provide it...I think a little tequila might help! lol  
Enjoy the slide show!
