I took a trip up to see my sister near San Francisco.

Lately, I've been so bad at taking pictures.  I just simply forget to.
I grabbed my phone and grabbed my sister who was working in the kitchen and snapped this one.  Wow!  It turned out great!!!
That's me on the left and Cindy on the right.  
We actually look like sisters.  When we were younger no one believed we were.  


We had to make the trip to SF so that Serena could meet up with the WYAM group.  They had a dinner for all the missionaries and to pick up her clothes. 

We took Serena's stick shift car.  

Wait - do you realize what I'm saying?

SAN FRANCISCO and STICK SHIFT??
Hills - and clutching on those streets?
And NOT rolling back into the car behind?
It has been about 30 years since I drove a stick.  AND I did it here on hills like this without a single problem!  Whoo Hoo!!  I was so impressed with myself.  Hahaha

I love cities and all those cool building.
Like this one triangle one that is on a strange triangle corner.

And the bridges - which by the way I'm not afraid to drive over.

There's a lot of fun stuff to see as you are walking.
Like this heart. 
My two girls, Rosanna and Serena - and Sis Cindy.

Serena just came back from being a missionary trip in China, so Rosanna said we had to go to Chinatown in SF as not to be left out.  So off to Chinatown we went.  Oh my, the Chinese people loved Serena speaking to them in Chinese.  We had so much fun.  

We went to a little Chinese Cafe and Serena ordered our food.
 She showed us what she usually had for breakfast or lunch.  And told us all about life on the other side of the world.  The different ways they have from us - such as there are not lines. Can you imagine? People just push their way in, but they are not seen as being rude.  That they do not speak in tense - such as past tense, present tense and future. Which was very hard for Serena to communicate that she had already eaten.  Her Chinese friend kept trying to take her to eat.  lol
Rosanna, Serena and Cindy

So that's a bit of my trip.

Happy Stitching,
Linda - enjoying family and SF

FNwF - Clarity Ruler Foot

You know how it is, sometimes you just get on the internet and start looking at one thing that leads to another and then the next thing you know you have something in your shopping cart and you are checking out?

Well, that's what happened to me.  I found Patsy Thompson's video about the Clarity Ruler Foot. 
(This is Patsy's Photo and quilting)

 I love this idea of having a clear foot.  So I popped one in my shopping cart.  Here's the link to her home page were you can see her video.


She is super fast at shipping, it was shipped the same day I ordered it, so I should have it here in a couple days.  I can't wait to try it!  That's one nice thing about quilting, there's always something new to learn.

I won't have time to do anything else with quilting tonight - my daughter is wants to make dinner for her boyfriend and can you believe she doesn't want me around?  So this will have to be my post for FNwF - just buying a quilting foot.

Happy Stitching,
Linda - Enjoying the thoughts of new quilting designs.
