Last week, before everything changed, I drove to Santa Clara to meet my friend, Stephanie. She was going to be in town as a presenter for a conference at the Hyatt Hotel and wondered if I could drive up a few days early and we could spend some time sewing together. Stephanie is one of my dear friends from the Minnesota quilting group and I was excited to see her. So I packed two Featherweight sewing machines in the car and headed up to the Bay Area.
The weather was so nice and I thought it would be a kick to take her to the Winchester Mystery House, so after lunch at a Greek restaurant, we headed over for a tour.
However, there are many beautiful windows.
We spent most of thursday evening in the lobby so Stephanie could connect with her colleagues that would all be trying to fly home the next day.
I had thought I would see her the end of this month at a quilting retreat we were attending in Texas. But alas, that has been canceled as well. So those days in Santa Clara with such a good friend seem even more precious. We had so much fun and I treasure the time we were able to spend together. Thanks, Stephanie!
