But I went out on a limb and ordered a latte today. It was fun watching the milk frothing there in the back of the van, in Bob's state-of-the-art coffee machine. It's the first cafe2u in the United States. Did I already mention that? If you are here in Fresno, twitter @cafe2uclovis and add them for a FREE coffee.
I already have my loyalty card. Eight more to go and I get a free coffee!
My stash of crochet yarn. Just waiting for a refresher crochet course from my friend, Deborah.
Deborah made me this fabulous pillowcase.See the crocheted edging? It's almost too cute to put on my pillow.
We had dinner with these three little ones last night. Well, we had enchiladas. They have not yet expanded their menu options beyond milk.
I ordered some hard-to-find kerchief girl fabric from Ayumi. It arrived yesterday. From Japan! And I just placed the order on January 15! It takes twice that long to get things from Canada. Go figure.
Have you ever heard of Drinkify? Thanks to Jessica of How About Orange, who keeps up on all kinds of valuable and necessary information, you can make sure the adult beverage you are drinking and the music you are listening to are compatible: Lady Gaga. James Taylor. Rachmaninoff (my all-time favorite classical composer). Carrie Underwood. Linkin Park (I added that one for you, Terri...). Looks like they have everything covered--Rachmaninoff was the test, but they delivered.
Have you ever ordered fabric from Cherrywood? Hand dyed. Beautiful. It has kind of a suede-like finish. When I was at the Road2California quilt show last weekend (more on that later too), we spent some time in the Cherrywood booth. The owner comes from Minnesota and we have known her for quite a few years--she is good friends with Mark's cousins. I had a plan formulated for a new quilt, but needed an eight-step gradation, in four different colors. Cherrywood had exactly what I needed. I can hardly wait to get started.
I'm a bit of a thread geek--the whole process is kind of fascinating to me. And the colors. *sigh* Wouldn't you love to try some of this thread? You should stay tuned. Your wish could come true.
Most people read blogs 8 a.m. to 10 a.m., noon and 3 p.m. I read that little tidbit here. At 9 p.m.
Hmmm. I bet you just glanced at the clock.
