California, Here I Come

Tomorrow, Mr C and I are leaving for San Francisco for a very important event. Our daughter Lisa and her business partner, Rena, are opening a gallery/shop in San Francisco. You can read about them on this Design Sponge post.

Better yet, if you are in the Bay Area, come on by and celebrate with us. Here is the invitation:

I’ll be there to pour you a glass of wine!

We are also looking forward to some time with other family in the Bay area. It will be my great niece, Viola’s, first birthday, and we wrangled an invite to the party.

I do not have anything creative to show you as the only work I have done is for the Twelve X Twelve Journal Quilt project. And I really haven’t done much on that piece.

Yesterday, we had the family over for soup and salad. Today, I spent some time buying smaller pants. I was so embarrassed this week-end because the pants I packed were falling off. I hadn’t worn them for a couple of weeks.

I will have my camera and laptop with me so I will be checking in from the festivities. I am also going to try to get caught up on e-mails to y’all.

    I have friends who live in the neighborhood; I’ll make sure they know about the gallery. Enjoy your visit!

    Awesome! Next time I’m out in SF I’m definitely visiting! You have such a talented family, must be in the genes. Hey, can I apply for a show there? I could say I have references!

    I would have tagged you, but you’ve been traveling too much to catch up with. Have another great trip!
