This Week in 2012, Week 15

How was your week?
I have to say I had a really good week. 
I enjoyed lunch with my mom and son on Tuesday.
We had rainy, cold weather off and on all week, so I had a lot of sewing time.
I finished a quilt top, dropped off my Swoon quilt to Long Arm Susie, and completed my project for The Festival of Half Square Triangles (that's tomorrow's post).

We got together with long time friends to play bridge (we are novice players), talk, laugh and enjoy dinner at a  delicious Indian restaurant. It was super cold and windy, but we did see the sunset at Redondo Beach...just a tad late.

Today was a special day. It was my friend's 60th birthday. She celebrated with a girlfriend's brunch at a lovely, old West Hollywood hotel. 22 women all talking at the same time, what could be more fun than that? 

Giving your friend a quilt you made just for her...that's what!

After the birthday party we stopped at our son's loft. This was a long overdue visit to see some of the beautiful changes he has made to decorating his new place. I'm not allowed to show very many photos because his loft is supposed to appear in a magazine soon. Here's a little sneak peak.
that's a bomb used as a planter

Thanks for stopping by,

Looks like a lovely weekend. I sure like how women turning 60 look like they are turning no more than 40, she is beautiful.

How can your friend be 60!!?? The quilt went down a treat, I expect! Looks like you all had a lovely time & yummy food! You are a talented bunch- a magazine shoot of your son's pad!!! Fabulous!

You all must be the best looking group of 60 year olds ever! Glad you've been enjoying yourself.

I have to laugh at the bridge comment. My Dad teaches/plays bridge twice a week at a local 'Sr. Center' and he comes over every week and talks about it (he normally wins he is pretty good) and I tell you I have no clue what he is talking about! But I humor him and listen anyway!! LOL

Your son's loft looks the planter.

Oh! you gave it to her? She is one lucky lady! I'll bet it was her favorite gift :-)

You guys totally don't look anywhere near 60! Love the sneak peeks of the loft too

Why does 'Housewives of...' some place or other spring to mind, you glamorous ladies!
So glad your friend loved her quilt x

Somehow I missed this post! Great pics of Renata and everyone. Hope she adored the quilt! What magazine is Kyle's place going to be featured in?
