Water Lilies Class
with the Grand Strand Quilters Guild in Myrtle Beach, SC
hese gals were alot of fun to be with and they worked hard on their water lily, despite the heat. Our air conditioner was broke in the workshop room, but the upside is we had a huge fan. I think it was the hottest day of the year to date in SC. But ya know what? Laughing, chattering and learning makes you forget the heat and everyone did a fantastic job. There are 2 more smaller water lilies to the project and I know these gals were all determined to get a good jump start on their quilts!

Let me ask you....
"Would you pass up this window if you saw it?"

The UK brand ALL SAINTS opened its second st
and alone store in the US in Miami Beach last December. If you like fashion I'm sure you saw already thousands of blogs and posts about it, the clothes are pretty and different...but what it calls everybody's attention is the store decorations.... literally hundreds of vintage sewing machines and clothing factory equipment are exhibit and used as display for the clothes and windows.

This is my dad, my artistic muse, my confidant, my rock, my voice of reason.
He changed my diapers as a baby, brushed my hair, danced with me, introduced me to classical music, taught me to change my spark plugs, mow the lawn, plant flowers and a vegetable garden.
He tells great jokes, is the kindest man I know, and taught me about history and geography.
He gave me my wanderlust for travel, to love art, being positive, to love the water.
*He always has a smile when you see him.*
*He is always inventing something, or has an easier way to do things.*
He sneaked me peanut butter and jelly sandwiches when mom made me sit at the dinner table for not eating my vegetable, or ate them for me when mom wasn't looking.
(Oops..You knew that mom, right?)
He put up with my teenage years, not an easy task.
And, my dad always believed in me, encouraged me and didn't blink an eye when I said I wanted to be an artist when I grew up.
I LOVE YOU daddy, with all my heart and all that I am.
