Where in the World....Day 3

Much to my amazement...I read comment number eleven on day 1 and thought to myself..holey smokes...this is a small world!
Robin recognized one the of  Hawaiian dancers and my charade was over....LOL.  That' why I posted the photo of Visions Museum  in yesterday's post....I know several of you would make the effort to Google and know immediately where I was.

After lunch at Souplantaion (one of my favorite spots) ...I got very sleepy and decided to lay down for a short nap.  

Where would be a great place to take a nap?  Why not in this lovely pile of batik fabric?  Better yet.....

sleeping in yardage seemed so much more inviting :)  I know all of you who love batik fabric as much as I do are turning dark green about now....

I bet you are wondering how I found such a plush place to sleep.....I happened to be with a very "insightful" blogger....SewCalGal and she arranged a tour of  Island Batik in Carlsbad, CA..  SewCalGal was talking with Caleb and Katie and I slipped off for a little nap.  When I woke up...they were still talking (chatty bunch) and that's when I made my move.



As I crept through the isles I looked up and noticed some suspicious looking storage bins....hmmmmm what treasures are hidden????  Inquiring minds wanted to know....soooo

I was wishing I had worn a vest with many pockets under my shirt.....what a bad day to be unprepared!!!

 JACKPOT!!!!  I can see these panels embellished...oh the beauty....as my heart beat became more and more rapid....my palms began to sweat....I thought for sure I was having a "Batik Seizure Party" in my brain.

I was not on top of my game because I forgot to look for security cameras.  As the "Batik Seizure Party"  took over the frontal cortex of my brain I lost all control and headed for the exit....who could blame me right?

I was thinking SewCalGal caught on to my dilemma and she continued distracting Caleb.  That's what I call an amazing friend....one will will be the accomplice to the crime :)  Much to my dismay, SewCalGal doused me in ice cold water to "snap me out of it" and I didn't even get out the door.  (Nasty expletives where floating about)

Thankfully Caleb and Katie were very forgiving and allowed me to remain in the warehouse under the close supervision of SewCalGal.

Look what I found.....

Then I spotted this....
Shazam....a bolt of lighting struck....that's when I made my move....I scooped up 4 little Island Batik bundles and they fit perfectly into my pockets.  I just know that I would not be prosecuted if I were to face a jury of my peers....so...who wants to be on the jury?

As "payment/bribery" I'm offering anyone willing to be on my jury a chance to own one of those beautiful bundles of  Island Batik Fabrics :)  Leave a comment on this post committing to be on the "jury" and if you want to increase your chances of winning...you'll get an extra entry if you go to Island Batik on Facebook and "Like" them...make sure you leave a separate comment here that you did do that.  . (Click Here to be transported to Island Batik Facebook page)

Will I find 4 peers?  Time will tell...

Oh yeah...one more thing...there was more fun after that...and I'll be back from the beach later to tell you about the adventures.

Smiles,
Kelly

Ha!!! So they caught you huh?? Well I can vouch for you girlfriend. You can plead temporary insanity. I would go crazy too if I was around that much beautiful batik fabric!!! The colors of your stash are amazing.

I'll be on that jury. Purely objective (wink, wink).

Gill said...

Yes. 'Temporary Insanity' - that's the way to go!

Lisa Marie said...

Quilters on the jury is definitely the way to go -- we all know the temporary insanity that can be caused by fabric!

mammafairy said...

Happy to join that jury! batiks can be just stunning! I had to bring some home last time I was in Batik country, too.

Anita in Florida said...

Janet said...

I will be on your jury and the prosecution doesn't stand a chance!

Heleen Groot said...

I will be on your jury. Who would convict you? Besides, you can always say that you were temporarily insane....or that they had it coming....they should not let all that lovely stuff just sitting there, unprotected!

Heleen Groot said...

I liked the Island Batik page on facebook!

Susan said...

What a small world indeed and the internet makes it even smaller! Looks like you are having an awesome trip!

Dana Gaffney said...

I'll be on the jury or I'll represent you, we'll go for the "Batik Seizure Party" defense, completely innocent.

I like Island Batik on FB.

ELNM said...

I would definitely vote "innocent" if I were on your jury! Just found you through SewCalGal - can't wait to follow your blog!

KevinB said...

Just like a certain "news" outlet, I'll be a fair and balanced jury member (wink, wink). It's obvious to this juror that your we entrapped. Like putting a baby in a candy store with open jars and expecting them to not be tempted.

KevinB said...

I gladly "liked" Island Batik on Facebook to show my support.

pinsandneedles said...

I'd be on your jury...temporary insanity for the love of batiks!

Regina said...

I'll be on your jury - and next time you need to wear cargo pants!!

Bonnie58 said...

I would love to be on your jury...

kc said...

Now that's a jury I'd love to serve on! and surely vote NOT GUILTY by reason of batik batty! I can vouch for that obssession - I love batiks! but, heck, I think I'd rather be your accomplice!!

A good friend is the one you can call to bail you outta jail, and a BEST friend is the one beside you in the cell, laughing about what a ride it was!

Jean(ie) said...

Ohmyeverlovinggoodness! Hell yes I'll be on your jusry... Heck, I'll even be the judge...

Judge Jeanie... How's that?

I KNOW you had fun with SCG. Tell her hello from me!

Carrie P. said...

that is funny that someone recognized the hula dancer.
So cool that you got to meet SewCalGal and WOWEE! look at all that fabric. I think you are having way to much fun!

Liberata said...

I will be happy to be a most sympathetic juror. :-)

Liberata said...

I "liked" and left a comment on Island Batik's Facebook page. No problem at all "liking" them!

lpnjam@aol.com said...

I could be the judge and then you definately would not be guilty and there would be no need for a jury!!!! I love Batiks and have just the quilt pattern for them.

Cecilia said...

I would definitely be on your jury. :-)

Cecilia said...

I already like Island Batik on Facebook. I saw your picture on their page .

Sheila said...

I would defend you until the ends of the earth....

Jeanne said...

I do not judge because then that would mean I would have to accept being judged by someone else and if I were where you were, I wouldn't have behaved as well as you did. You were a good girl. I would have grabbed and ran as fast as I could have. I would have been crazy out of my mind with happiness. I wouldn't have thought things through. I would have only thought about getting my clutches on anything I could. Hee hee

Jeanne said...

I liked Island Batik also!!
