Photo Finish Friday

Yet another natural object heart. Driftwood from Cooks Beach, Gualala, CA.

Very cool. Thanks Wendy!

Also Cool!

Yes! To all.

I would be cross eyed.

To make. I have SO much lace!

And, a MUST see!

What are you up to this weekend? I'm playing tennis, sewing and relaxing, you?? Teresa

Summer Summer Summer--Part 3

More of our stay with Harmony. We went huckleberry picking in Point Arena which is north of Gualala. It's lovely. It also meant I got to see Ling-Yen (second from left) and her husband John (far right), they are awesome. :)
 We got a good sized container of huckleberries that we used in muffins. Yum!
We went on a hike after berry picking and ended up at the Point Arena Pier to have pizza and ice cream.

Me and my peeps! When did they get so big? Remember when this project started Little Man (8 in that photo) was 4??

Always stunning views in Northern California. Gotta love it! Teresa

Summer Summer Summer--Part 2

After our big trip to MN and SD we were home for 3 days, went to the Selena Gomez (the girls loved it) concert, then hopped a plane to CA.
We stayed with Harmony (thanks Harmony!) and went to Gualala Arts Camp everyday. Big Girl and Little Girl were assistants and Little Man was a camper.



Little man made the best mosaic in his favorite of the 3 classes. There were dance and music too. Mosaic teacher is on the left and Harmony's husband/Director of the Art Center, is in the middle.
I was able to sneak in a little tennis with a friend while I was there. Harmony found me a racket in her garage. The grip was a little old and pretty much feel apart in my hand while I was playing. Ha! I still had fun! The ball bounces much differently at sea level. That's Orson Wells, the dog, by the way.
Happy Happy! Teresa

Summer Summer Summer--Part 1

Holy smokes this summer is careening by! I've been traveling so much I haven't had a moment to sit down and tell all of you what's been going on. We had an exchange student from Mexico for 2 weeks in June. She is the daughter of Lupita who was an exchange student at my parent's house in 1989. Cool, huh? Here we are at Finding Dory. Go see if you haven't.
Little Man had a couple goldfish that got too big for his tank. A woman in our neighborhood was kind enough to release them into her pond.
We drove to MN to visit Bagette Dad and other relatives. Long drive. But, we got to see lots of family and go to the Mall of America in the process.
While in MN, I got to see the "U Crew" which are my college friends from the University of MN. We all lived in the dorm together. The blonde in the middle was my roommate for over 5 years! Love these ladies.
Speaking of the U of MN, Big Girl did a week long, wonderful program there call Women Mean Business. She absolutely loved it and made some great friends.
I got to cuddle with my littlest niece. The one I made this quilt for a while back. Man, I haven't made a quilt in forever.
 My big sister turned 50 and we threw her a party! :)
 We left MN and took a driving tour of South Dakota. First stop, Corn Palace in Mitchell. Of course!
 We found an old school playground that still had a merry-go-round! Little Man was in heaven.
Oh the Badlands, be still my heart. I love that place!

 Clowned around at Wall Drug.

 Buffalo spotting in Custer, SD.
 And, the last stop before heading home was Mount Rushmore.
Great trip but good to be home…for three days…then on to California! More soon. Teresa

Rocks from the river in Gualala, CA
So creative and sweet. 

To try.

This is good to know. :)

Lovely.

Eye Candy.

Maybe this will catch on. Thanks Harmony.

Hi there! Late posting this due to heat stroke. I played a singles tennis match this morning (won, yay!) but it was over 90 degrees and I felt it for the rest of the afternoon. Worst heat stroke of my life. Ugh. Anyhow, how are all of you? I hope you have some fun plans for the weekend! :) Teresa

South Africa Bag!

What timing! My family and I just got back from Disneyland in California! Teresa
Thank you for the lovely bag. Attached is a photo of me with the bag on the banks of the Kowie River in  Port Alfred in sunny South Africa.
