A nice day out
Rick’s on Second Street in Antioch is a very nice lunch spot. I met my new friend, Bev, at Rick’s today. The little restaurant serves delicious sandwiches and great soup. You can order a half sandwich and a cup of soup. That to me is the perfect combination.
You need a reservation for this popular, cozy place. In the picture above, note the turquoise plastic bag carried by one of the patrons. That bag comes from my favorite quilt shop – Queen B’s Quilt Shop – just a half block away.
I’ve been working on my QuiltArt 15th Anniversary challenge and have the middle part almost completed. However, I needed some “floor” and “ceiling” fabric to finish my scene. I’ve been contemplating dyeing some fabric in gradations to fill my need. This seemed a daunting task for an inexperienced dyer.
Much to my delight I found the very fabric I’d been imagining right in the store. It is McKenna Ryan’s “Silent Inspirations” by Hoffman California International Fabrics. So I took my own turquoise plastic bag filled with fabric home with me.
