a beach retreat

This month I was able to go on my annual beach retreat with my family!   It was such a fun and relaxing time, and I loved every moment!!  We watched lots of movies while I stitched hexies together, we went on a little antique trip and had a blast taking beach photos again.  Do remember last years?

I got the outer layer stitched onto the grandmother flower garden mini quilt I'm working on for the Sewing Room Swap.

I also have been working on my August hexie block!  I'm almost done!  :)

Here is our little antiquing trip we took.  Feather your Nest is our favorite place to shop while in Brookings!

Here is Tasha and I, and we are matching!!  Funny thing is we do this all the time and don't ever plan it!

Some of my vintage goodies I found while on our trip.

I also found these beautiful vintage hexie flowers!!  The were only a $1.25 a piece.  I think I really scored!!

Our photo shoot!  ;)

 All the girls and the cutie twins!!  I was in baby heaven!!  :)

 Toes in the sand

 Tasha and I

 And I had a little fun with the photo shoot.  :)

 I sure do love my sweet family!!  Can't wait for next year!

While I was gone Heather Ross's, Briar Rose came in!!  Isn't it so sweet!!  I have the full collection listed in my shop along with some smaller bundles.  :)

 Here is a pretty in pink custom bundle that I shipped off recently!  Isn't it sew pretty!!

I also pulled fabric to start an On a Whim quilt with Scrumptious and some other pretty coordinating fabrics.  I'm now waiting for my background fabric to arrive.  I'm sure itching to start!!  Also, there is a quilt a long if you'd like to join in too!

I hope everyone is having a lovely week!!
