Happy Valentine's Day

This was the view from our B&B:

My hubby and I went to Monterey this weekend to
celebrate an early V-day and to have a much needed get away together. It was truly lovely!

We stayed at a bed and breakfast called the Green Gable's Inn.:

Sherwood SURPRISED me with a romantic picnic on the beach which he had set up prior to our trip:

We also spend hours at the aquarium, had fantastic seafood dinners, visited a quilt shop in Monterey, then one in Buellton on the way home, then we met Paul and Jill in Solvang and had a Mexican lunch there.

I can't tell you how wonderful the trip was....so nice to know we still really enjoy each other after all these years!
Thank you, Sher for the memories!

More Vday stuff



 Reversible table runner for Melyssa:


 One for Daeve at work! A prize for doing a SUPER job last week!


 And going into Darkel's care package is a pillow case, and a couple of books, plus lots of other goodies---- remember he's deployed!






Another teaching(?) day...

 My sister, Juli has taken off on her sewing/quilting journey. She's taken to it like a duck to water. We customized a pillow case pattern for her king sized pillows:


 Then she whipped up 2 Valentine's pillow cases for Jana and Lauren.



 And did I mention that she also made us delicious spaghetti with homemade meatball for dinner?

Luck Be A Lady

Made a donation quilt for "Quilts for Kids". I am hoping these little "ladies" will bring good fortune to the recipient!
