Happy Monday. Hope your weekend was as sunny and happy as mine was. Here are two of the things that made my weekend happier. I'm finally coming down the stretch on both these tops. You probably don't remember but The nine patch was double the length. As I was putting it together I realized that half of it would make a perfect table top piece for one of my very favorite people. So I separated it in the middle and made one top for her and I'll keep the other one for me. I don't have any more of that cheddar yellow or the small red border but I'm sure I can find something pretty close somewhere and isn't the search half the fun.

One of the happier things this weekend was seeing the wedding dress of my Darling Daughter-in-law-to-be Dani. The dress is so lovely and it made me tear up a little just to see it. I told her she should just sit her Mom and I together between a large box of tissues. Things are really moving along now on the wedding front. The happy couple registered at Bed Bath & Beyond and Macy's so I'm sure they will be getting a lot of lovely things. I'm getting very excited and nervous for them. What a sweet time this is for Dani & James. It makes you remember all those feelings of so long ago. Very sweet memories and sweeter still to realize that they still going strong.

As you can see from the picture above I also put together the baby quilt. I need some backing and then I'm almost done. I wish I could machine quilt this but I'm not great at it so I guess I'll tie this one all over the place.

Roger took Friday off and we went for a walk on the beach. It was so hilly and such a mess from the terrible storm of two weekends ago. It made walking a bit harder than usual. Couldn't get our footing very well. I suppose the Village guys will drag and clean the sandy beach sometime soon. There's a lot of trash laying around that blew in. Still, the temp was 67 and very sunny so it was a nice moment.

I had better get back to catching up with some house work and laundry. Talk to you soon.

I like the color combo in the pinwheel quilt. It has such a fresh look to it.

What great quilts! Why not quilt the baby quilt yourself . . . . if there was ever a quilt recipient that would never think of looking at the quilting - it's a baby *s*
