I'll just give a quick recap of April, then be back on track with my sewing projects!!
gma and dad
mom and dad
My 89 year old grandpa flew to CA and took a 14 day cruise to spend ONE
day with me on Maui.. I have the most amazing family :) :)
The night before my mom was leaving to come see me, she called with "a favor"
apparently one of her friends is moving and she wanted to give them a quilt, and she was hoping to be able to take it with her when she left.. 10 days later
So this was what I came up with
I used Serenata for the quilt top and backing
embroidered with "Bless our home"
and the back had a place for my mom and her friends to sign their well wishes
I used Elizabeth Hartman's block design for the house
All in all, super happy with how it came out and it went together really fast.
Another reason that i've been so MIA is because...
boyfriend and I got ENGAGED!!!!
He waited until my parents arrived, asked my dad and then they spent a week
planning and getting the ring
He asked at sunset with my parents there... couldnt have been more perfect for me
Traditional blowing of the conch shells at sunset.. family tradition ;)
So there you have it, why i've been so MIA!
Now, back to the sewing and regularly scheduled programming
