I've shared my Crush Quilt
photo and the story of how the title was inspired by our time at a friends vineyard during harvest season. Well, this post is about a recent visit during a very special Ladies Week at Wofford Acres Vineyard
in the beautiful El Dorado Hills CA.

The name of the quilt I made for Ann was half the reason I chose it. We just don't get to see one another often enough. A bonus is that the quilt is one more project completed for FALQ2

One of my favorite things to do is take pictures - and yet, if it wasn't for my good friend Sue, I'd have next to nothing to show for the trip: these are all from her camera except the last two that I took many moons ago and wanted to share. I was lazy - yes, quite. I spent most of the time laying on the lawn, drinking Paul's award winning wine, grazing on fabulous food...
|Our private tasting |
Ann's neighbor, an avid quilter was sweet enough to invite us over to meet the gals from her guild. Her home was like a museum with quilts displayed on every wall and draped along the deck outside. There was a mix of technique and some fabrics and pattern I recognized from my "to do" list as well as original designs that inspired.
|Such a pretty color|
We also took an outing to Jack Russell Brewing
to pick up a new tee shirt for hubby, ventured into Placerville for Zia's
gelato at the end of town (an inside joke) and to stock up on Z Pies
to take home for the family which was a good thing since it was the first thing my son asked about as he helped unload the car.
I sat with Ann's friend Edi at lunch but didn't join some of the ladies on their trip to Time Out Spa
- next time! Oh, and the mug I use every day at work is from the wonderful Shafsky House B&B
so I picked up another.
It's fun to be reminded of special times when you are back in the real world.
