I am back from my California trip! It was amazing... just few pictures from the trip:
And I didn't forget my quilting addiction during the trip. I brought some projects with me (see later for details) but I didn't have a proper project bag... then I went to Carmel... and by chance I walked by a wonderful shop (actually a wonderland shop) called "The White Rabbit" :) :) Can you believe it? and it was obviously full of Alice in Wonderland things... so I found the perfect project bag!! :) :)
(the yellow tea-cup fabric is also from there. The other pieces of fabric come from another shop in San Francisco... too Halloween cute to resist :) )
During the trip I embroider the block with Alice and the Cheshire cat, then I crochet a super-cute "giant" amigurumi doll (it is 10'' tall) and I pieced the tree of the Modern Tree QAL (from Christa's blog).

With the trees, I decided to create a different layout than the one Christa propose, and I decided to make a tutorial for that. If you are interested you can check it in the Tutorials page.

(the pictures have terrible light but I couldn't take them during the day :))---
And now I have more projects waiting for me on my to-do list... the first of which is a block for the #TFIOS Design Challenge on Fandom in Stitches. Thanks Jennifer for suggesting this book!! I read it during my trip (and during my 5 hours spend in Chicago because of a 3 hours delay of my plane!! :( ). I really really liked the book... very touchy story and very well written. I sketched my block during the trip... now I need some time to put it in the software and on fabric :)
And as a last update, I joined the Secret Santa Swap... I am so excited :)
