Soupe du Jour

Has anyone been traveling along with Rachel of Not so Plain Jane ? She has us dreaming of European getaways...well, I 'll blame my title on that anyway.

Look at this pretty teaset she posted...!

My last class has wrapped up, it was a great experience for all. I tried to get these students to focus on more on similarities, than our differences.

I was blessed with working with a great group of people, too. Joyce Zhao, business leader and California Representative for the Summer Camp (aka my boss), myself, Dr. Lee, the Head of the Company from EZGO Guangzhou, and my church's children's pastor Craig Wilson.

Remember our poor car situation? Well, here is the "new" car replacement ~ it is a joy to drive!

Here is what's on the frame today, and hopefully when we return from our little retreat I'll finish it up and share a bigger view. This is my friend Ginny's first quilt, and it is adorable!

Yes , I need to run and finish packing for a few days of hanging out with these guys. We pack our food, swim suits, sewing machines, Uno cards, and boy, do we have fun. See you soon!

Oh, and now you know another reason for the title, this is just a day in the life....

Happy Quilting,
