Connie is my quilting mentor... she is the one that started my obsession!!!!!
So Sunday we visited and relaxed... and enjoyed a wonderful bacon cheeseburger and tots meal too thanks to my honey's culinary talent! It was sooo yummy :) But by Monday morning and a good nights sleep under our belt she was ready to start quilting something... a baby quilt!!!
Then Tuesday she got a new doo! Kimber, my hair stylist and friend gave her a GREAT makeover!!!
Below is a panel my daughter (who was with us) went crazy over ... so I bought the panel :)
I got Connie a ruler like mine as a surprise little gift.. and with this quilt shops name on it ... it is extra cute I think... it is 2 1/2" x 6 1/2" and is perfect for cutting up block parts during the piecing process :)
By Wednesday she had a flimsy completed...
Then below she is layered and pinning...
Hopefully you will get to see the finish once it is gifted too... but it turned out amazingly beautiful with her tiny hand stitching in the pink with white thread and in the white with pink thread... this is a quilt for a girl baby being born to a coworker who has 3 boys presently!!! So lots of pink is a necessity for this little girl to be!! lol
Also while here Connie made us matching cup cozies...
Finally Friday was here... and we went to a local seafood restaurant! We all have July birthdays and when we told our excellent server this ... she grabbed this shot after a group sang happy birthday to us all!!!
Check out the free desert we got to share too!
While we were at the restaurant we took some photos on the boardwalk attached!!! Here are a couple!
So now my teenage daughter is gone for the summer... I have 5 1/2 weeks for just me and my honey to enjoy. Wow... how long will it take this reality to set in??? Not sure yet!!!
