Day Trippin'

Today was a fun day. We took the truck to Corona to get a larger gas tank and decided to make a day of it. I drove the truck and Ray took the motorcycle. We dropped off the truck and took the bike to Tom's Farms for breakfast. Then we roamed the shops and bought some specialty mustard.
Blue made a friend.
We took the long way back to Corona, past Lake Matthews. Then he took me to Stars & Scraps, a quilt shop that I knew about from the quilt shows. I was looking for some Indigo fabric, which they didn't have, but I found a couple of things anyway.

Here's something I've been wanting to show. A friend of mine, Kathy, has been crocheting tote bags from plastic grocery bags. Her bags look so great that I had to try to make some too. The blue and white bag is Kathy's. The large white one is my first attempt, the small white bag with the colored stripes is my second attempt. I have to admit I am hooked. Now I'm making one in red and white from Target bags. I plan to line it with Coca-Cola fabric.

Did I mention that I like being retired? Like Ray says, "Everyday is Saturday!"
