Postage Stamp quilt update

I finally got a chance to go down to Rosie’s Calico Cupboard this past weekend to find some border fabrics for my rescue quilt top. I’m finding that one way to pick the right fabrics is to use my cell phone to take pictures of the color combinations. For some reason they look different on my phone then in real...

Knitting is the answer

Knitting solves two problems for me – my OCD and my need for variety. Thank you Ravelry.Com for being an endless fountain of new patterns.

Facebook knowingly duped game-playing kids and their parents out of money

The memo stated, “Friendly Fraud – what it is, why it’s challenging, and why you shouldn’t try to block it.” “Friendly fraud” is the term Facebook used when children spent money on games without their parents’ permission. Facebook made clear that game developers should let children spend money even without their parents’ permission. The company was focused on revenue, not...

Blue Water Seafood (San Diego)

http://bluewaterseafoodsandiego.com/m/ Finally we have found truly fresh fish in San Diego. And how did we find it? By watching Mark Wiens’ YouTube channel! We had to find out about this place from a guy who lives in Thailand! At 615 on a Sunday night, the line was out the door. We waited a good 20-25 minutes just to place our...

Tig Notaro, One Mississippi, and Star Trek Discovery

OK, I just want to say that I discovered Tig Notaro last year on Netflix thru her show One Mississippi. At first her slow way of talking drives you crazy but what it reflects is a deep confidence in herself, confidence that the audience is listening. And she is so authentic in what she says and does. It actually changes...

Poki One N Half (Kearney Mesa)

Today I ordered a small with only 2 scoops. It doesn’t look like much, but really (by global standards) it’s quite a bit of food. PONH uses high quality food, very fresh veggies, and properly prepared sushi rice with that slight hint of vinegar and sugar. Best Poke bowl in San Diego. Recommend you check them out!

Grilled Chicken Nachos, Pollo Loco

Our family seriously loves Pollo Loco. We go at least once a week and we rack up the Loco points and I’ve lost track of how many $10 rewards we’ve redeemed. In fact the girl that works there knows our order and punches it in as soon as she sees us! If you don’t already know, Pollo Loco chicken makes...

Latest charm quilt

Yet another ebay find. There’s many, many quilt tops for sale on ebay but they’re not all of similar quality. It’s really a crime what these sell for (typically $25-150), it doesn’t represent, at all, the time put into them. This top was hand pieced from one inch squares. No sewing machine! It’s mind boggling, the effort that went into...

Scrap blankets

3 more crocheted blankets. The top one was made for Ms S, lots of yellow in it. Yellow’s been her favorite color forever. I’m not a yellow fan yet this color combination really works, don’t you think? With the remaining yellow (really a goldenrod) I whipped up another blanket in a color way that was again out of my comfort...

Camo

I’m really conflicted about wearing Camouflage. It’s extremely popular right now for jackets and pants. In my crazy family, we kids were pretty much forced to wear it and it’s not a memory I cherish. It literally took me 45 years to even start wearing the color olive or khaki green. So I found this jacket at Lane Bryant, it...
