|When in doubt, always start a new project!|
The beautiful block pictured above is from Kaffe's Blue City Life Quilt, a kit I purchased recently from Hancock Fabrics. I finished 10 blocks last weekend. The pattern is in the book, Pick Up A 6-Pack by Timeless Treasures. The kit pictured in the catalog has a lovely rich blue sashing and the actual kit I received has anemic-looking purple sashing (which for some reason looks fabulous in my photo). Hopefully, I'll love the sashing when my quilt is finished. (Marion talked me out of going to the quilt store and buying all new sashing fabric.) The pattern is quick and easy and I really like the quilt book. There are definitely other wonderful patterns in it to try.
|We enjoyed this beautiful view of the Atlantic Ocean, as well as a lovely sea breeze, while we sewed.|
|Here is one of Marion's projects last weekend.|
While we were busy sewing, the menfolk indulged in their favorite past-times.
|Merwyn had some quality computing time along with a nightly cocktail hour.|
|Mike played his guitar and enjoyed swimming in the ocean.|
|We had lots of fun going out to dinner. On Friday night we had a delicious seafood dinner. Mike and Marion had lobster (or as we say in Boston, "lobstah").|
|Here's my husband with one of his favorite libations, Rebel IPA.|
