We hiked around Point Lobos State Park. We didn't see any otters but there were quite a few sea lions and cormorants. The hikes were great and the ocean views were spectacular but there was a lot of poison oak along all of the trails. Of course, this made me very nervous and I wanted to make sure that I would not fall anywhere near the itchy, itchy plants.
Every time we go to the Monterey area, I have to stop at the Back Porch Fabrics shop in Pacific Grove. It has the largest collection of Kaffe Fassett fabrics that I have seen and quite a few books and notions. It was grand going in and looking at all of the quilts hanging on the walls.

I purchased three fabrics. The yellow fabric is from Kaffe Fassett's collections. The other two, I randomly selected because they matched my focal fabric.
I am making pillows with my youngest daughter's sorority, Alpha Chi Omega. I will make two, one for my daughter and the other for her "lil sister" this coming fall.
