Wedding Quilt Done!

Just in the nick of time!
I finished the wedding quilt yesterday for Leann and Andy.

My new favorite place to photograph quilts,
next to Gorham's Pond . . . 

I just love all that color!  Hehe.  You already knew that.

I am very pleased with this quilt.

The quilting took a while, but I love this effect.

The binding I picked is a new Kaffe, and it is just perfect.

All boxed and ready to post tomorrow!

on another note. . . . 

How is your DWR challenge progressing?
I am hand quilting mine, the perfect thing to take on the road next week.

Jennifer, who won the templates on my giveaway,
has been working on hers . . . 

You can find out all the details for the challenge here.
What are you waiting for? Get going!  Great prizes!

Baby Owen

Baby Owen received his quilt this week!
Doesn't he look like he is flying?  Hehe.
Too cute.

Playing Hooky . . .

No sewing this weekend . . .
It was the kid's birthday so there were lots of festivities.

Shopping . . . 

I found this beautiful mermaid painted on a piece of wood.
The knots were her belly button and "ahem" other things . . .
She is firming ensconced by my front door now.
This picture makes her look like she has a black eye, 
but it is really teal eye shadow.

There was a major slumber party in my tiny apartment.
Five girls!!  What fun.  Felt like college again.
And yes, waiting for the bathroom is not always easy.  Hehe.

There was great food and drink outside on a beautiful night.

There was one of the ten best beach days this summer!

And finally there were pedicures and giggles.
Well, there were giggles the whole time!

Happy Birthday Kid!
Love you to pieces.
