Impromptu Swap

Recently my husband and I took a (business) trip to Napa.  This was my first time in California if you don't count airport layovers.  

glorious day
While waiting for our luggage to arrive in San Francisco, I grabbed a quick cup of coffee and took a picture of the local You are Here mugs which I posted on Instagram.

You are Here
That posting prompted an impromptu mini swap with my friend MaryAnne.  I was happy to oblige and glad to have an Austin mug to remind me of our meeting at QuiltCon!  

Happy mail!
When my package arrived I was pleasantly surprised to find an extra goodie - the Studio Stitches/Empty Bobbin pattern!  Fun!

hubby and me
The California trip was last minute and work related so I couldn't squeeze in any quilty get togethers or shopping, but other than that, it was fabulous!

Thanks for stopping by,


  1. You were wise to never miss an opportunity to go to Napa... business trip or not! So glad you could go. You're such a cute couple - perfect-looking together. I have a new Austin mug too, and I was fortunate enough to pick it up in person. Don't ya enjoy collecting these neat mugs? I've got three now and hubby reminds me that every time I buy a new one, another older mug has to go.

  2. Next time you come this way, we WILL get together!

  3. Wine Country is such a treat. I will always miss being 30 mins south of Sonoma... Looks like you had a great time and those pics show it

  4. We lived about an hour south of Napa when we lived in CA--loved it--no other place like it!
