My granddaughter, Rachel, spent the week with me.  She flew in from Idaho last Sunday and she is winding her way back right now.  We had a great time together.  I schooled her on sewing.  First up was a pillow case.

Next a laptop cover.

She also got two Click-It bags made.

She's going home with some Rachel-made loot. 
Did you know that Thursday was National Chocolate Chip Day?
And we did get in some outings.  We saw Cowboys and Aliens.  And took in the Long Beach Aquarium.
And dinner at my favorite dinner haunt.
We even went to the Long Beach Playhouse and saw
A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. 
I'm going to miss her.  Next summer - sewing class here for any of the grands who might be interested.

Quilt happy,
