my childhood house

I've been neglectful of my blog, sorry. I have been busy working on a quilt to be considered for the Long Beach Quilt Festival - I'm doing the binding now. I also have put my daughter's baby quilt top together, and I have begun embroidering on it. I can't really show you either thing, so as not to spoil anyone's surprise.

Since my niece is also preggers, I am thinking of a quilt for her, too. The theme in her baby's bedroom is Robots and Rockets - won't that be cute for a baby boy's nursery? I have an idea in my head, but nothing on paper or cloth yet.

A couple of weeks back, I went with some friends to South Pasadena. Terry showed us a fun little vintage neighborhood where we walked around, had lunch, peeked in shops, etc. We were also able to stop by my childhood home, which was not far away. Here's a photo of me pointing to what was my bedroom, in the corner. All the old trees are gone now, but otherwise the house looks pretty good. It looks much better than the time we looked and it was an ugly dark gray!

sounds like a wonderful day. I have dropped by my early childhood homes in Kansas City. Have even knocked on the door but no one answered. Great post

I haven't tried knocking on the door yet. Maybe next time!
