They had lots of antique lace on display as well as beadwork, petticoats, hats and books.
hmmm..maybe something to add to my garden list....
"streetcolor"...a little soggy from all the rain but so fun to see. Four were down by 4th street and the others were up by College Ave.
Now I am packing and getting things together for our road trip to Washington for Artfest.

I am off on a road trip to the San Francisco Bay area. Taking my son, Jason and two friends back to school after Spring break. Hope to get in some fun visits including a new place I heard about...a lace museum and textile shop in Berkeley called Lacis.Driving home on Sunday...
I love the idea of sending off quilts to Japan for the tsunami survivors. In addition to sending money (which I've done) at least it is something we can do as women to help. Check into your local fabric store or quilt guild for more info. I received some info. in an email this week....but I have to take off now..bye!

And son no.1 is coming home from college for a week for Spring break and that will be good. I plan to spoil him by cooking all his favorite dishes. Haven't seen him since January but we stay in touch with texting and email. He says he will take me to the Apple store and help me pick out a new computer...I am excited about that. We have a rainy week ahead. After temps in the 70's and 80's last week...good for sewing and hooking,
but not for my 2 mile daily walks! Hope you all have a great weekend!

I hooked up this rabbit last night and then had to re-work it this morning. I wanted to make 2 rabbits, one in each direction for a local shop to display for springtime. Below is the drawing for tonight's work.

I've been busy making circle and flowers to stitch onto the wool scarves that I've collected. I've made about 5 so far, with just a few more to do.
Our community garden is coming along. Last week we started setting up the place where our beds will be and continued with stump removal. I think I did more chatting with the other gardeners than actual work but that's OK. Got tips on where to find a new lighting fixture and a good local place for chocolate covered almonds! Yum!

Several of my Santa Barbara Etsy group girls were selling so I stopped to chat for a bit.
Sunday we have another work day on our community garden. We got our fence up and now we are going to work on the raised beds if it doesn't rain.

A close up of the wonderful details....
Pepa treated us to a surprise birthday cake for the February girls (me and Syd) and coffee, tea and vegies to nibble on. So great to get together with all of these creative women!
