Happy Friday the 13th!

Hubby and I spent the weekend in San Diego, just the two of us. It was Friday, June 13th, 1980 that we had our first date, so whenever a Friday the 13th rolls around we celebrate, but this one was a biggie, because it actually fell in June!

Nice relaxing weekend, no cooking (YAYY!) or planning to cook (that's the worse part). What was really the highlight for me, besides having my hubby's full attention, was a trip to The Country Loft. OMG!! It is to die for! My first visit there and I can't wait to go back!

What is The Country Loft..well it's a quilt shop loaded with primitives!! Cheri Payne (aka Cheri Saffiote Payne) has her patterns for sale there with displays! I LOVE her stuff!! Purchased way too much fabric and patterns and can't wait to get busy designing!! It is filled to the brim and ceiling with primitive works of art. I spent several hours in there. Luckily I have the best, most patient hubby in the world as he doesn't mind waiting in the car taking a snooze or working on his laptop. What a lucky gal I am, huh? NOPE he's not for sale or rent!!!

We ate at a fantastic Bar-B-Q restaurant called, Phil's Bar-B-Q. Ymmmy ribs were fabo so was the rest of it. Yumm

San Diego is only a little less than 200 miles from home, but a great getaway! We promised each other that we would getaway more often.

Now tomorrow I will be going through my treasures and starting on more Halloween/Fall designs! Don't be surprised if you see me starting some Christmas designs too! Seems it was just here tho huh?

I have new designs as of today on The Primitive Gathering Lonely Sara Jane is still available, but my other designs sold fast.
Also, be sure to check out my website Mustard Seed Originals for more great designs. I will be adding lots more in a few days.

It seems Summer has arrived. We have our pool all set to swim. I usually take a few hours a day to jump in when it's really scorching and do some exercises.

Hope everyone has a great week!
