Have you visited your favorite fabric shop recently?

There are some beautiful, beautiful designs...this Maasai line is particularly lovely. The palette is so soothing...

A few months ago, I de-stashed all the cheap fabrics I had bought years ago...there wasn't the overwhelming choice of beautiful patterns and quality of fabric that we have today. It felt good to purge that extensive load of unremarkableness.

A few of my current favorite fabric shops are...

  • Hawthorne Threads...A huge selection of fabrics, a great web site, with a great blog, too!
  • Fabric's on Etsy and her selection of fabric is fabulous!
  • Cinnamon's Quilt Shoppe...a traditional bricks and mortar quilt shop, loads of fun, the girls there are so helpful!
  • Paula's Fine Fabrics...another local shop with beautiful contemporary designs and a large selection of sewing machines.
  • Fresh Squeezed, fast delivery, fantastic customer service. You won't be disappointed.

it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

This is a Christmas-quilt kit.

I've had for about a month...

and it hasn't changed! It still looks just like this.

When I get around to putting this together, it's going to be one sweet, happy quilt!

There's only one thing...I have a problem cutting into pretty fresh fabrics.

I like to sit and look at it, admire it, appreciate it.

I'm thinking this quilt is never going to happen.

Time will tell.

Do me a favor...remind me about this kit in a few months, K?

Thanks bunches!

good-grooming DOES make a good impression!

Does it make me a "bad" mother for loving her even more, now that her fur is cut?

That's what I thought...

I can't help it, she's just so darn cute now!

Down On The Boardwalk

Being Saturday and the day before Easter,
Jason and I opted to go grab a bite to eat.
But we didn't want to go just anywhere....
we wanted to have a dining experience!

The restaurant itself isn't elegant, the food is good and satisfying, but not particularly incredible. But the view...the view is spectacular! Look at the gentleman to the right, he was eating lobster...I love how I have a shot of him in mid-bite, so enjoying his food!

Just outside the restaurant is a small boardwalk, overlooking the ocean. We left just as dusk was settling in and the ocean was at high-tide. Thank goodness for iPhones, as I didn't bring my camera (as usual) and the phone has a decent-enough camera. I saw our shadows and thought it would make for an interesting photo.

The beauty of the ocean is breathtaking! Especially on the eve of Easter...

God's perfect beauty...

An unsuspecting cactus hidden in the dunes...

Houses on the beach...can you imagine?

The restaurant.

Palm elegant and perfect on the coast.

We sat and watched the breaking of the waves. The skies are blue, the wind whipping about...

A random beach-estate on the ride home.

But are they happy??!!

Ha, ha...I'll bet they are!

But do they have a cozy little home with a sweet little dog to greet them when they walk through the door?

I wouldn't trade a thing in my life...God's plan is perfectly perfect for me!
