On The Back Porch...
Yesterday I had the nicest little diversion. I picked up a girlfriend of mom's to bring her out for a visit and while they were reminiscing about the old days (this girlfriend has known me since I was 3 yrs old) I drove to the seaside town of Pacific Grove to visit Back Porch Fabrics! Gail Abeloe and her shop have been in Pacific Grove for 15 yrs. The shop is a quilting "must see!" They have a gallery with 6 shows a year and a total history of 90 shows! Tomorrow you'll get to see the current show, Lighthouse Art Quilts. The Shophop by the Bay I mentioned yesterday extends to this side of the bay and Gail's mother Dorothy has been making homemade cookies for the shop hop every year! This year a total of 600 homemade cookies!!! Her right hand person is Jean who you will meet later in the week...and you are going to enjoy that blog! In the meantime sit back, spend some time with me (I can't express how important this connection is too me) and enjoy the show. Anything you see you can check out their web site Back Porch Fabrics
