After that trip, I had 2 days to get things together for my trip to see family in San Diego, CA. On the day before the trip I decided I needed to sew up a couple of things. It turned out that I was at the sewing machine all day. I had a couple of pre-quilted panels left over from a quilt I made last year and decided to use part of one to make myself a small purse. Turned out pretty cute.( No photo.)
I had already made a couple of things for my daughter's kitchen and I decided to make more. I had fabric left over from a wall hanging I made her a few years ago. She had decided to put it on the kitchen wall. You can see it here. I made a pot holder, a double pot holder, a skillet handle pot holder and 2 tea towels. The tea towel on the right has prairie points like the one on the left. I didn't use enough contrast. I found the pattern here.
My daughter had recently bought 2 of those pitchers. Isn't it amazing how much they look like the fabric?
I could not get the binding sewn on the skillet handle pot holder on the sewing machine, so I stitched it by hand. The opening was too small for the machine.
On my first afternoon in San Diego, my GD#2 drove a couple hours to see me. She is 20 years old and attends California State University-Long Beach. She works at Disneyland, so drove to work early the next a.m. The next day, she drove back to SD again to spend more time with me. Her sister (GD #3) is 16 years old and will be a high school senior in the Fall. So, my first evening there, my daughter, GD#2 and #3 and I went out for sushi. OMG!!! Did we have sushi!

On Saturday my GS #1 brought the great-grands for a visit. I got to meet my youngest great-granddaughter. She is a year old and her sister is 2. We took them and 3 of their 4 half siblings swimming. Aren't they cute?
I had so much fun! Since I have been going to San Diego for 21 year for visits, I did not want to do more touristy stuff. I wanted to just hang out with family. Best vacation ever!
