I'm back...

The last few weeks my family and I have been on holiday in the amazing USA. We went to Los Angeles and Hawaii. It was absolutely the best thing we have ever done and we can't wait to go back again.  We had such a good time.

 Of course we went to Disneyland and that was so good, It was better than we ever imagined, We spent 3 days there.
 We had a day at Universal studios and that was great, the rides are out of this world.

 We met some fun people in Hollywood.
 I did do a little bit of stitching while we were away, mainly on the plane and sitting by the pool, it was so relaxing. I could definately get used to that life style.
 I did quite a lot of shopping, I bought  this cute little Halloween dish and some fabric to play with.
And I found a lovely quilt shop in Orange County, I bought these American fat quarters to make a quilt to remember my holiday.

I have lots more to share with you so I'll be back tomorrow with a few more pics.
Its been hard to get back to our normal routine but now I have caught up on my sleep I'm sure I can find some time to play in my sewing room.

Have a great day.

Sounds like you had a great time. I made a quilt with fabrics I bought when we went to the US in 2005. We were in Minnesota in the Fall, so I bought autumn fabrics and called the quilt "Minnesota Memories". It is such a lovely souvenir.

What a wonderful trip you had, quality time together with your family. It's also my dream to go to America once. We went to Disneyland in Paris (only 4 hours driving from here), but I think there it is so much bigger!
Enjoy making your memory-quilt.
