Tomorrow night is the Sew-In and I will be working on the “Between Friends” quilt (pattern by Darlene). Tammy has zoomed ahead and will be getting her borders on. I’m still on the 16 patches! Ms. Red Geranium is suppose to be joining us also along with the other participants…….128 when I last checked :-) !
Again thanks Heidi and Bonnie for this monthly event! Tomorrow is packing day for our trip. Call me crazy – in all honestly I have been called much worse ---- anywho, Saturday I am attending an all day sewing event. So I have worked hard all week to be organized for our early getaway Sunday morning. Boy I have an understanding husband….just sayin”! I have had some great play time this week with the little dots. His mom thinks I am helping her out, but honestly I just love getting to spend so much time with them. Hope I'm not driving my daughter in law crazy!!! Ok, that’s it for me. Hope you are having a great week!

Happy dancing going on here…..the Eye Spy quilt top is done. I had planned to work on it for the Friday Night Sew In, but working on it a bit each day, well I just couldn’t stop. Whewwww..it feels so good to have this done and I know both of the Little Polka Dots will enjoy it.
Now I’m tackling the 16 patches for Darlene’s “Between Friends” quilt pattern. There will be 35 16 patches and I have 10 pieced but all the rows for others done. This will be a great Friday Night Sew In project. Tammy has her top done except for borders……so Swell!!!!!!!!!!!
Mr. Polka and I have a big adventure ahead of us. A week from today we leave for a cruise to The Panama Canal. This has been in the works for quite a long time and it didn’t really seem real till I got the passports out and suitcases down. Now to figure how to pack 1 suitcase a piece for a 15 day trip. Don’t you just love Mr. Polka Dots duct tape passport cover?!!! We are so excited and going with a great group of friends. We tried to talk Hunka and Ms . Red in to going……seriously, that would have been way too much for one cruise ship!!
Happy week everyone!

Morro Bay was amazing. A bit stormy, but that only made for beautiful photos. Here was an otter floating on his back in the bay across from where we camped. Life is good in otter world. We have camped in this campground for 32 years with friends. We were all so young way back….now we are talking about grandkids and health care!!!
Now on to bragging about my friend…(this is a distraction since I have no quilting to share! ) My friend Jan made this wonderful Hunter ‘s Star quilt. Years back I made one that was paper pieced, but this one is made with a new Hunter’s Star Ruler…and then this beauty..I was so in awe
bibs for Little Polka Dot!!!! He has a heard of teeth coming in and is a drooling machine, so now he has three new minky backed bibs I just need to hammer on the snap closures. His little brother is doing so well. We had them here yesterday while mom and dad hosted a party at their house. Papa and I were having our own party! That’s a wrap for me, fingers crossed that I get some sewing done this week! Happy week everyone.
