Snake snake snake

I an afraid of rattlesnakes. I've never actually seen one, but I'm sure that the moment I do, things will go terribly wrong. So when I saw this sign at a rest stop in WA I was not happy.


Seriously..I actually wish they wouldn't warn me at all. Until that sign, I was happily walking over to the path to photograph the amazing view. Then the sign happened. And I froze in my tracks. I actually had to force myself to walk on the path and take the photos that I knew my heart had to have. #stupidsign

I almost never stray from a path like that..unless I'm walking the dogs...they won't 'go' on concrete. Little buggers. So there was not really any chance of me actually seeing a snake...but when ever I see that sign..I envision the snakes laughing...hidden among the dry grass, just waiting to jump out and bite me. Did I mention that a rattlesnakes can jump like 600 million feet...or something like that. Far, they can jump far and it scares the bejeebers out of me.

Luckily I didn't see any snakes, and I was able to capture these amazing photos with my phone...and I made it back to our truck, bite free. Thank goodness!



I win this time evil snake sign! Have a great week everyone..hope it's snake free!

DWR Quilt

Recently I had the pleasure of quilting a Double Wedding Ring Quilt for a customer. The more I worked on this quilt..the more I fell in love with it myself.

The amazing colors of the rings.....

The feathers that I quilted in the middle of each ring....


And each time I rolled the quilt and looked at the back....
 my heart was just sooo happy. It truely was hard to give this one back to my customer.

This amazing quilt is a wedding gift, and I'm sure the bride while cherish it for years to come. I wish I could see her face when she opens the box.

If you have a quilt top that will be a gift..give me call...I currently have openings in my schedule and would love to quilt your tops for you!

Happy Sewing!

About Me

Welcome to Calico Cali Designs! I’m Kat, digitizer and sewing enthusiast. I learned how to digitize in 2010 from master digitizer Walter Floriani…it was an amazing experience. Soon instead of spending my time sewing, quilting and stitching out other people’s embroidery designs, I was sewing, quilting and stitching out my own embroidery designs. I created this blog, not only as a place to share my embroidery designs, but also as a place to share all the things I make, sew, paint, embroider, and create. You’ll see posts about my life, my studio, patterns I’ve sewn and products I’ve tested. I hope you enjoy reading these posts as much as I’ve enjoyed creating them.
