I am back from San Francisco

Good Morning everyone, I have not meant to ignore my blog, but catching up with messages, starting a new job and having 2 rooms painted in ones house - does not give one much time for blogging. To make matters even more behind - I am off and running once again - this time to Jacksonville, Florida - will fill you in about that later.

Below is a shot of "the streets of San Francisco" sounds familar!!! OH yes, it was a TV show way back when!!!

DS, Jeremy lives in SF (he lived in NYC before) and the EGA had their National Convention there this year. So since I was lucky enough to win the Convention classes and DH had an freebie airline ticket = off I went!!
Below is pictures of the Golden Gate bridge - FOG and all

The rocks and waves below the bridge.

Will share more pictures of what my classes were later on another day, but wanted to at least put something up on the blog to share with you.

One of the exciting parts of the trip, was that I was able to meet up with Edgar!! from the blog 'Blacksheep's bit of the Web'. We meet up at a Thai restaurant for dinner and had a wonderful non stop chatter. Of course, both of us forgot to bring our camera's!!! DUHHH!

Edgar is a wonderful person and would have loved to spend more time with him visiting and sitting down to stitch - another time!! We did get together again when he came to visit me at the hotel/Seminar. We did lots of looking at the exhibits and browsing in the bookstore, boutique, merchandise vendor market and looking at a special exhibit of Italian embroideries.

Well, it is looking like I need to get myself off to work - will explain that in the next post - have a wonderful day everyone and thank you for stopping by.

Great pictures and what a wonderful time you had. Shame you and Edgar both forgot your cameras though.
I´ve been there once and would love to go again. When I win the lottery!
