Trying On A New Look

California here I come!
Okay... I live in California.
what I mean is:
Road To California here I come!
It is now less than a week away for a girlie getaway!
A couple of friends and I are heading down to sunny Southern California to attend the Quilter's Conference at the Ontario Convention Center. I have been there several times in the past and it's always fun! My mom lives nearby, so it will be a two for one kind of trip. I might even talk her into coming to the show! I still haven't gotten her to start quilting... but shopping... what girl doesn't want to do that? This is a 4 day convention with hundreds of vendors, an amazing quilt show (that one day I am going to enter) and classes given by incredible designers!

While I am there I get to go see Barbara Jones of Quilt Soup and take a class from her on applique. I have a feeling that it is going to be a whole lot of fun...
even though it includes the "A" word!


But for now... it's almost time to start the weekend! Which will include going to the movies and going out to lunch... putting away Christmas *g* and maybe even a little bit of quilting! I hope!

I am hoping that my computer issues are resolved... well, it seems that they were more my issues than blogger issues; never-the-less. I ended up having to delete my post before last... it seems that there was a little "hick-up" there that messed up my sidebar. But I will "repost" it over the weekend because it had Bea's beautiful mini quilt in it and Patty's Winter Wonderland that was spectacular.

I am trying out a new look as long as I was in there monkeying around.
Let me know what you think!
I am still undecided. Of course I couldn't even decide on my lunch today...
so that isn't saying much!
Have a wonderful weekend blogettes!

Love your new look. I too, did a new look this week from My Style Backgrounds. I like it much better now. I had a couple issues but resolved them pretty quickly.

I like the new blog look! You're going to have so much fun at Road to California! I have a hard time making decisions too...we went to PF Chang's for dinner in Las Vegas tonite...I got the same old thing since I can never decide on anything new!

Fun, happy new look. Isn't it great to let your hair down? ROFLOL (I"m afraid to try anything new on my blog...I'd love three columns but am too scared I'll mess my original blog up so I don't do anythign)

Once that Christmas stuff is put away, have a little time for "Sinta" - sew!
