Redding, California

Went up to Redding this past weekend to visit Martina, Stephen and the kids.  Planned to go to visit and to take a class but as things happen, it was the best place to go for the eclipse.  Not planned at all.  We also just got a telescope, so Jeff was very happy.
 I took Don Linn's class "Circle and Curves".  There is a quilt store just 10 min away and when I was up the last time I noticed that Don taught there.  Love him as a teacher and a friend.  Was he ever surprised.  I had a great time.  The other students were great and of course, so was Don.  I really learned a lot.  The circles are set in and I did it!  This is a technique I will do again and again.  This is the top before quilting.  I am almost finished with it.  I quilted it and the binding needs to be sewn on.  I think I'm going to bead some of the circles.  So when I am finished I will put a picture up.  Hopefully one that is in focus.
 Here is Jeff showing the kids the eclipse.  We had spent the afternoon in Lassen Park.  You would not have believed all the people up there with their cameras and telescopes hours before the eclipse but we went back to Martina's beautiful home.  It's just like a park!

Me and the kids and a glass of wine.


  1. I bet Don was surprised to see you. I like you quilt and glad you learned a new and useful technique.

  2. The quilt is very pretty good to know that there is a quilt shop in Redding I will stop on my way to Oregon next month.
