Yes it's true.....I have been on vacation and last week was away from my computer. No chance to blog. In Cabo....some good times and some not so good. A little food poisoning adventure for me and my husband. Several others in our group were also sick. Still able to experience Cabo. Saw a lot of whales, had a beautiful sunset sail, and lots of time to lounge at the pool and work on a little tan.

The weather was warm and wonderful.

Good times and some good memories.

Sunset Sail

Part of our group heading out to sail into the sunset!

Appropriately called "Seal Rock"

Out on the Bow...

a beautiful sunset!

The following week was spent out at the beach with my mom and sisters. I took my Bernina and we sewed a little, read a little, cooked a little, enjoyed each others company and the beach.....

a sunset at the Oregon coast.

I came back in to work a day and then..... off to quilt retreat with my guild. I was able to get two quilt tops done, and made a cute bag, also made a couple of blocks , and a little hand sewing of binding on a charity baby quilt.

Now it's back to the real world this week.

Finishing up for January

               Finished this quilt for a PTA raffle this week. One of my friends at work finished the top and gave it to me to be quilted. Hopefully it will raise a lot of money for a good cause.

I decided to do an allover panto on this.

Hard to get a close up.
The panto is called
Maidenhair / Kaye Emmerson

and these are my Bee Blocks for January for
Sew Bee Wonky.
I just love those little houses.
These are 12 1/2 inch blocks.
Sew cute!
