Half Ton Truck to Carry My Sewing "Stuff"

I'm packed and ready for a retreat in Cambria and I'm also the speaker at the Nipomo Quilt Guild (doing a trunk show) and because I have to take not only my retreat stuff (you know, machine, tables, chair, fabrics, threads, rulers, food, etc) I have to take 4 suitcases and 1 plastic tub full of quilts to show so I have to borrow his "new to him" half ton truck to carry it all. He has mentioned this several times to me tonight.

So the last few days when I've had a few extra minutes, I've been finishing this little baby.  It's from the class I took at Road 2 California, the class was Layered Waves by Karen Eckmeier.  I decided to make mine a pillow to keep at the beach house in Cambria.
An the picture below is the reason we went to Livermore on Sunday.  We brought the parts for this shelving unit to the kids.  Jeff and his dad had all the parts and pieces of trim and it was their job to paint and put it together.  I am amazed at how fast they did it  Apparently the second we left, they got busy.  They did this while taking care of a 1 1/2 year old.  They are amazing parents and kids.  I love how it turned out.  And I know Chad was thrilled that he got to use his pneumatic (spelling) nail gun that Jeff got him for Christmas.
  I also did some baking this weekend.  Took pictures of my lovely cake but when I thought I was updating it to my computer from my iphone, apparently I had them deleted.  Let's just say it looked just like the picture I saw on Pinterest  It was a lot of work, but very good.

Thanks for looking.
