Two Happy Travelers

Last night, my husband and I arrived home from an awesome week's cruise along the west coast from Los Angeles to Vancouver. It was a great adventure full of all sorts of fun and very tired feet from running all over the cities. We visited Santa Barbara, San Francisco, Astoria, Seattle, Victoria, and Vancouver.

I took along my hexagon flowers to work on, of course, but other than at the airport, I'm afraid I didn't get much sewing done. But now it is good to be home and back to the old needle and thread.

Speaking of which... I came across the lovely Button and Needlework Boutique in Victoria, Canada and couldn't resist a new project using these 23 sweet little Mother of Pearl buttons. I'll have to show it to you when it's finished.

Your cruise sounds absolutely delightful. Were the fires going when you were in Santa Barbara...I hope not. No matter how great a trip is, it's always good to get home;)O

It sounds like a wonderful trip Annette. I'm glad you had fun. Did you climb to the top of the tower in Astoria? Can't wait to see your finished button project.

Sounds like a great cruise. I have not been one yet. Maybe one day.
Love all the different shapes of buttons.
