I have this theory that for every day of a vacation, it takes two to catch up. And we came back to a full- steam- ahead schedule. First, my stepdaughter’s wedding. A beautiful, small ceremony at the Portland Chinese Garden.
It was a beautiful night despite the rain and I had the joy of seeing these four beauties all together for the first time in years. And speaking of first time in years, I wore a dress!
I love this picture of me and the handsome husband (aka father of the bride. )
I did make one small sewing contribution to the wedding with the ring pillow.
Which was carried by the adorable new granddaughter! It was a two-fer wedding as the groom brought a bonus child into our lives!
Now, on a more quilty note, I believe we’re all in agreement that diets and vacations don’t go together, right?
Which holds true of fabric diets as well and the USS Frankenbatt did store some cargo in Australia!
And like any diet, it was a little hard to get back on the straight and narrow when I got home.
Tula Pink’s Pinkerville arrived mysteriously and a customer at the candy shop mentioned seeing Statue of Liberty fabric at my favorite thrift store… sigh.
What’s that old saying, “Lead me not into temptation, I can find it myself!”
(By the way, the handsome first mate of my ship doesn’t read my blog… which may be a good thing!”
And, I got a package from the Just Wanna Quilt Squad with some pretties to make something with and send back.
However, I’m back on the straight and narrow and excited for my party in the diamond blog hop this week. I’ll be sharing one of a pair of UFOs that fit the bill. Here’s a sneaky peak
So, a Happy Easter to all and more to share tomorrow!
