I recently read an article on "10 Things NOT to do on your Blog". One of them was DO NOT do a recap of your Instagram feed on your blog. Well too bad, because that's what you get this week. I have been spending every free minute trying to Free-Motion quilt but there has been a lot going on this week.
The last 10 days has been full of a lot of social activities. We are usually not such social butterflies, but this was a special week starting with the wedding of our dear friend's daughter, on May 4. Lindsay was an absolutely beautiful bride and Scott was her knight in shining armor. Our two youngest sons were able to attend along with their girlfriends and our daughter in law, Jenny. Lots of friends were there too and we loved celebrating this special day with everyone. The nuptial mass at the Mission San Juan Capistrano was reverent and touching. Then we got our party on the rest of the night.
I went to my first Los Angeles Modern Quilt Guild meeting and got to hear the very talented Alexia Abegg speak and see some of her stunningly beautiful quilts and clothing projects.
This Circle of Diamonds quilt was my favorite and I have ordered the pattern.
I also got to see the Marcelle Medallion quilt that caused a whole cult following on Instagram. It's even better in person.
The garden has started really growing and we have been enjoying a few of the crops we have been nurturing. The bees were caught doing their work in the zucchini flowers.
My nephew and his family are visiting from Pennsylvania, so my sister and her husband hosted a lunch so we could all get together and visit. I love seeing my nephew and his lovely wife parenting their sweet little girls.
Mother's Day started with a Mother's Day tea at my mom's Senior Living. It was nice to see all the residents with their loved ones enjoying finger sandwiches and tea cakes.
My own Mother's Day celebration is postponed until next Sunday when #1 son will be in town. Due to work and travel schedules no one could get together this weeekend. It's all good because Mr. Romance started the day with this gorgeous bunch of flowers.
We then went to breakfast at the beach and for a walk on the foggy Newport Beach boardwalk and pier. Later we met our son and his family for dessert at Yogurtland.
Wow! That was a long post. Thanks for reading to the end.
