Design Wall Monday 05/16/16

Sorry for the absence last week - we had been on a mini vacation that week and I didn't get any sewing done!  We love to drive down to Paso Robles and go wine (and beer) tasting.  Now that we live in San Jose, it is only about a 2 1/2 hour drive from home.  Above is a pic of me at the vineyard where we stayed for two nights, Croad Vineyards.  Absolutely wonderful place and great wine too. The winemaker, Martin Croad, was around and we had some wonderful chats.

Because we were gone on Mother's Day weekend, my mom, sister and I moved our annual Mother's Day sewing day to this past weekend.  A good time was had by all, as usual.  I got quite a bit of cutting and marking done, so I literally have my work cut out for me now!  I can just sit and sew tonight which is wonderful. I'm really pleased with how much I got done.  I usually talk so much I don't get anything accomplished!  Above is my sister showing her Swoon block that she made yesterday.  Turned out so great!  Both of those prints have a little metallic touch to them, which you can't see in this picture.

Be sure to check out Judy L's blog to see what everyone is working on today. Also linking up with Quilt Story and Let's Bee Social later this week.

Mini vacations are fun! Just enough time to enjoy without getting overly tired.

Ooo! That sounds like a lovely mini-vacation! Great pic of you, too!

Your sister's block looks great! Every time I see one of those Swoon blocks, I come that much closer to caving and just getting the dang pattern. :P
