AWOL!

Having been AWOL [ Absent Without Leave] this week from blogland, I will keep my Saturday post short and sweet! No reason in particular for the absence, just family and life you know?

Today I met up with some quilty friends I have come to know mostly online- we visited a new [to me] quilt shop in Tempe and chatted loooong over lunch with some show and tell to enliven the event!
Andee has posted a pic over on her Facebook page.

This afternoon I finished Andee's Christmas Lights quilt, a Bonnie Hunter Mystery from 2009 Quiltmaker Magazine. I had hoped to deliver it today but just couldn't get done in time.
Fortunately Andee probably won't need to use this quilt now till next Christmas season, plenty of time for her to bind it.

Another spectacular scrap quilt with some very unexpected colors! Up close and personal with this quilt I was surprised to find purple-can you find a purple piece? In person it looks much more festive, I think the camera has washed out the colors a bit, even so I love it.
Nice work Andee!

This evening DH and I dined bountifully at the Ocean Club with oldest DS & DIL. Dined [as in past tense] the wonderful food had been eaten and table cleared for coffee and port. You can take my word for it that Ocean Club is a fine dining experience for a special celebration, the Seafood Tower is a gourmet delight.
Now I am off to bed since I am unable to type without constant errors, that means I am beyond weary!

Isn't the second color inside the red edge a purple print? It's all so pretty.
