Glorious Days

The Monterey Bay fills my soul.  I grew up breathing ocean air and so, when I return there is a peace that settles into all the nooks and crannies of my heart.  I visited the cemetery where the parental units are together and I reflect on how blessed I am to have had such adventuresome parents.  Those who have been reading the blog for a while know that mom passed away while sailing in a race...at 81 years of age!  I come by all that I am from the gene pool, LOL

If in Pacific Grove I have to visit my dear friend Jeanne of Jeanne Mills Tours  I have such fond memories of traveling with her to France and still dream about another trip :)  She lives is one of those beautiful painted ladies in Pacific Grove.

She is a fabulous quilter/stitcher but is also a Quilt Art collector and so I was excited to see a new piece by Gwen Marston hanging! 

I always have to head up to the sewing room to check out her latest projects and I wasn't disappointed.  I love this Sashiko pattern by Sylvia Pippen and I think I actually have this one on my to do list???

Her latest project was a guild challenge and is inspired by Jane Sassaman...although Jeanne completed her project with needle turn applique techniques.

My visit with Jeanne was just what I needed
 to jump start my stitching
...now I can't wait to get home and 
head into the Bee Hive!!!
Wishing you a great Tuesday!
