Now Where Was I.......hmmmm

Tons of stuff happening in Polka Dot Land.   I can't believe I haven't posted since March 25....those blog police will be showing up for sure.  Thanks for all the emails checking in on me.........much appreciated!

There is tons of wedding planning going on.  Last Tuesday I met up with our girl and we addressed the Save The Dates.  We have a bit of Lucy and Ethel in us, so lots of laughing was going on.  Tomorrow our sweet couple is headed to their wedding venue for some tasting and other planning.  October will be here before we know it. 

Then there was some time to squeeze in a trip to one of our most favorite places.....Morro Bay.  This is our first camping trip of the year and it was so wonderful to hit the road with the trailer.  Mr. P. had some time for golfing, and I had a bit of time to spend with my sewing machine
 and my Lucky Star quilt. Slow and steady is the progress on this baby.  The rate I am going it will be another few years before it's done.  There were so many pretty sights to see in Morro Bay but one of my most favorites was my friend Annie and her guy......mind you when you are several hours away from home one of the last things you expect to see is a favorite quilting buddy.   Annie and her hubby just happened to be driving by the campground and she spotted me.  She was as surprised as I was.  Nothing better than hearing two squealing quilters happy to see each other.  Totally made our day. Annie had no idea we were in Morro Bay, what are the
odds? Here we are with our fellas.  I'm the shrimpy one!!!!  Thanks Jim and Annie for the wonderful surprise visit.  I am so grateful for our friendship Annie.

Of course we missed The Dots and had some things to catch up on with them.  They reminded me my car was in need of another trip to the drive thru car wash, so off we went. Boy is it fun, but a bit noisy....time to cover our ears.  Then my pincushion was a mess, so Big Dot took care of that job.....He told me he likes the artwork in my sewing room.  What a cutie pie and he appreciates Nana's artwork! 

Met up with a very good friend at PF Chang's.......yummmmmmy and we had the most wonderful visit. It always amazes me how people come in to your life just at the right time.  (HUGS) to you my sweet friend.

This weekend was a quilt get away weekend.  My friend Lani invited me up to her beautiful cabin.......just the two of us and our sewing machines.  Confession was more of a talking weekend, but boy did we have a great time.  We each made a gadget bucket for our sewing notions, and started working on a civil war quilt.  It was so relaxing up there, and so, pretty.  I am already looking forward to our next get away.  We have been friends for 29 years.   I so treasure our friendship. 

To get to the heart of what has been keeping me busy.....BINDINGS!  Business is booming so there has been quite a few hours spent binding away.  These babies are done and there's another stack calling to me, so I know what I will be doing this week.  Another thing I need to get back to is REHAB.  A Year To Crow About is just waiting to be put together, and I only have two more blocks to do on Christmas Favorites.  If you are looking for some motivation on getting your BOM's done, just check in to REHAB with Sinta on Monday's and get those BOM's done!

I got a bit overwhelmed thinking what to write much has been going on and I am so behind on everything bloggy.  Reading over my post the theme of friendship jumps out at me.  I am so grateful for the friendships I have and that includes all you bloggy friends.

Wishing you all a very happy week.
