The Postcards at CA 1st ATHA Chapter, Redlands, CA

On Saturday, May 18, the Postcards from California (all 53 of them) were displayed at CA 1st ATHA Chapter in Redlands, CA.  This group made us feel very welcome.  They meet at  Trinity Episcopal Church and have a large room with a wall of natural light.  They don’t stint on refreshments and we enjoyed fresh fruit, cakes, cookies, and coffee.  It was a generous spread of delicious goodies.

Mission San Luis Obispo

Mission San Luis Obispo is the 53rd postcard in this series and comes all the way from Toronto, Canada. It is also the 3rd California Mission to be represented by a hooked postcard preceded by San Juan Bautista and Mission Dolores.

My niece, Kayla, goes to the University of California at San Luis Obispo. Her mom and I went to visit her and took a side trip to the mission. It was wonderful. I have many wonderful memories of visits with them in Topanga, but thought this would be fun to hook. Plus, as I said on my label–it’s a step back in time to a gentler time. by Maureen McIlwain, Toronto, Canada
