The Story Has a Twist

This week Road 2 California begins!
It is an event in Southern California that I try to attend
each year.
The quilt show is amazing and the shopping...
is fantastic... and if you take a class at the convention...
those are super fun also.

These are photos from last year...


Ms. Cupcake n Daisies had two quilts in the show!
I was thrilled to meet her there along with 
Woohoo! 
It was great having a little bit of time to walk around with them
and lunch too.

Here are a couple more photos of quilts that were 
at the show!


And there was a special exhibit of vintage PINK quilts!
So sweet!!!


I did manage a few purchases for my souvenirs 
and then there was a little side trip over to

Temecula Quilt Company... because 1,248 
vendors at the show were just not enough!
So my plan is take a little road trip and go
there on Thursday- Saturday.
I am super excited to make an escape...
the only thing stopping me from my adventure now is
 a Jury Summons for tomorrow!!!
Please keep your fingers crossed that they don't pick me!

I will keep my fingers crossed for you. I'm jealous--I would love to go to the Road to California. I have a friend here who is going. My sister lives really close to Temecula, so I would even have a place to stay. Have fun! Post lots of pics on Instagram so I can live vicariously through you!

Have fun for me.

Cathy said...

Road to California sounds super-fun so I hope jury duty doesn't get in your way.

Nancy said...

When questioned just say....if the police arrested them they must be guilty....you will be off the jury.

Wow, that looks like a great event. I would have been in heaven with all those pink quilts.
I love what Nancy said!

Kris said...

Oh for Pete's sake, you are kidding me! I am not planning to go this year. I wish I could hook up with you. Have fun!!
XO Kris

I'd rather be at quilt shops than in a jury, too.

Helen L said...

I hope your jury duty goes as my last one did: Call every night, and finally I was released without having to go in!! Keeping my fingers crossed!! And if you get to go, this is my first year to go to Road: I'd love to meet you! Email me (hlebrett at live dot com)and we could set up a time. I'll be there on Thurs. Hugs, H in Healdsburg

Oh, what bad timing! It sounds like you had so much fun last year. So far I've been summoned for jury duty twice and called up both times. My husband, who is older than I am, has never once received a summons. Go figure. I do hope you get to enjoy the show though!

Lesley said...

Loved seeing your quilts and the special times from last year. Fingers crossed for you...

Cheryl said...

Have fun! That sounds like a wonderful quilt show.

Thimbleanna said...

Oh No! Surely a quilt show is a good enough excuse to not be picked??? If all else fails, do what Nancy says -- scream GUILTY LOL!!!

gailss said...

Oh no!!!! they can't pick you and tell them you have to be at show....good luck.

Sue said...

Fingers crossed that you get to go to the show .

Needled Mom said...

It should be a great show.

Lisa D. said...

Wow, it hardly seems like a year ago that I was able to meet you! I hope you don't have jury duty so you can enjoy the quilt show!

Jeanna said...

Here's hoping for NO jury summons and also hoping that you have a wonderful, safe trip. I look forward to seeing all your photos and purchases.

Have a great time and I will keep my fingers crossed for you that you DON'T get picked for jury duty!

pandchintz said...

That sounds like so much fun!! Hope you get there!!

John'aLee said...

Have fun lady! It sure is a fun show with lots of inspiration, that's for sure!

Wendy said...

Oh I do hope you get to go! I was hoping to go this year but alas...as far as jury duty, you'll just have to explain you have more important things to do and hope the judge is a quilter.
