I am only allowed to travel to quilt shows if I return home with sports paraphernalia from teams that are in the general area of the place that I am visiting.  When I went to Road to CA I was in Ontario — which is east of Los Angeles.  Of course, the boys had no interest in any of the various sports teams that call LA their home.

No, what they wanted was something from the San Diego Chargers. Now, right before I left I remembered that Karen lives in San Diego and was coming to the show — so I quick e-mailed her and asked for her help.  (She also happens to work for the Padres, but the boys weren’t interested in that either.  Chargers.  That’s what they wanted…)

Karen was able to find the PERFECT hats for the boys and brought them to me at the show.

Which reminds me:  the check will be in the mail today, Karen.  Promise.  I’m writing it right this minute.  Well, right now I’m typing, but when I stop typing I’ll write the check.



p.s. I’m trying not to whine, but.  I’m getting ANOTHER cold.  Ugh.  At least I had a few weeks of feeling good after the last cold.

p.p.s.  Have I mentioned lately how much I love Photoshop?  Now that I know how to selectively recolor a picture, I’ll probably go way overboard doing it, but it is so darn cool!  Oh!  And I found a website full of tutorials on how to do really clever things in Photoshop: .  I have spent a good portion of the morning reading tutorials and giggling with glee….

    Oh cool… the smiles say it all! *VBG* So glad they like them.

    LOL about the check…. I’m not worried. I just figured you were snowed in and couldn’t get out to mail it. ;c) (Says the native southern Californian who has no clue how people function in snow.)

    Take care & hope you feel better soon.

    Great hats! Love that quilting you were showing a couple of posts back as well. As for the snow, wind and ice — um, isn’t it time for it to be spring yet? I want to feel my toes again!
