Yesterday was a long day, full of fun "social" events instead of work. It started with attending Saturday Sampler then going to coffee with several quilting friends - where we celebrated Tina's birthday. These are my sampler blocks for this month. The pink and brown is the actual sampler block, and the green one is a bonus block. That is an option each month - to bring a bonus block and have a chance to win them all.
Then I met my oldest daughter for lunch in Sioux Falls, went with her for the final wedding dress fitting, and stopped at one dress shop to look for a dress for me. She looked beautiful in her dress. As for me - I did try on 3 dresses, but didn't like any of them.
Next stop was to pick up my other daughter (the December newlywed) and we attended a bridal shower for her sister hosted by her friends. I had the shower guests all sign a quilt block for her (see below). Then all of the girls went out for an evening of fun, including a limo and a comedy club. Hope someone took pictures of the bride-to-be in her green boa with flashing lights and a crown!
Flip flops - the perfect block choice for a destination wedding on the beach, right? The block is the same flip flop block that I've made before. I have a wall hanging made of 4 of them in my beach-themed bathroom. And I used the same pattern to make a summer swap quilt. I'll also bring a couple of blocks to the wedding for guests to sign.
It was a fun day, but I was definitely wore out when I got home last night.
