Saturday–So Right, Sunday–So Wrong

I guess I should start with FNWF, in case anyone came here looking for stitchy stuff.  I didn’t get around to working on the baby quilt, but I did finish this wall hanging, except for burying a few threads.


I quilted it on the Sweet 16, and I need lots and lots and lots of practice.  I also started a couple of hexie flowers, but Ill wait till Wednesday to show them.

SATURDAY:  was a beautiful day, warm and sunny.


We had a beautiful day driving around and taking tons of pictures.  Naturally, the evening was not complete without a wonderful seafood dinner.

SUNDAY:  The plan was for me to take a sunrise walk on the beach, but it was too cold.  Cold and very windy.  This is not how a boardwalk and beach should look.






We had breakfast, spent a couple of hours on the boardwalk enjoying the invigorating air, and then did a little Outlet shopping before we left town.  I even bought a bathing suit.  I think it’s been at least ten years since I bought the last one.  We ran into a little traffic on the way home, but it wasn’t bad compared to summer beach traffic.


We got home early enough to go out for our traditional Cinco de Mayo dinner.  All in all, it was a wonderful weekend.  Now it’s time to start planning the next getaway!

Kindness matters…..Sunny

  13. The snowman quilt is a sweet one. A cold look done in the blues and just right for a snowman.

  14. In previous posts, I noticed you are making Grandmothers Garden with hexies. How do you make your hexies? I've used different methods and get frustratd before making enough hexies for a project.
