Lavender Festival

We aren't usually in California in June, but lucky me, I was able to go to a  Lavender Festival with my sisters at the Highland Springs Resort in Cherry Valley. 

The lavender fields were fragrant, and so pretty. 

There were tents set up for venders, crafts and food. 

There were tables set up to have lunch, and a string quartet played while we ate. 
The property was used as a stagecoach stop, and there is a stunning 1100 year old Live Oak tree on the property. 


Of course the day wouldn't be complete without buying some lavender infused goodies. Yum!

"Emily" is Published in Sew Somerset

I shared a wall hanging titled "Emily" with you a while back, and now she appears in the latest edition of Sew Somerset.

I received my complimentary copy a couple of weeks ago, and I'm happy to be a contributor.  You should be able to find it in stores today.

Take a peek inside to my article:

Here is a link within my blog to the post where I describe "Emily".
