My Myrtle Beach Week

2 Comments

Hey Guys!

I have been absent…because I was at the beach with my Happy Husband!  I think that is best reason to be absent by the way…LOL!  So what did I do at the beach?…  I went swimming, rode my bike on the beach, ate some great food, laughed  a lot and sewed of course!  Of course I would bring my sewing machine to the beach!   My Happy Husband loves to relax at the beach and I like to be busy.  After the second day of relaxing I was wide open and would wake up at 5am.   I would sew from 5am until the HH got up at 10 or 11am.  While at the beach I made two quilts (one I finished & one I quilted) and starting cutting another.  I know…it crazy but I had so much fun sewing at the beach.  Here are some pictures of all the fun I had and the quilts of course!

Bikes at the beach is a must!  I think next year we will just rent one…driving that far with bikes on the car was not fun.

On Memorial Day, we drove to Quilting at the Beach.  They were closed!  This is the HH pointing and laughing at the “closed” sign.  I went back the next morning and the whole store was on sale… 25%!   Plus they had a clearance section that was CRAZY!

The resort we stayed at was right by Barefoot Landing, where they had TIGERS!  No lions or bears but really cute Tigers and baby cubs.  It was interesting to see them at the beach.

This quilt is for my Grandfather for Father’s Day.  I will tell you more about it soon because it has some special features to it.  I got the tutorial from In Color Order.

Here is the HH riding his bike.  I had to have proof because my Mom would not have believed us otherwise.  IMG_0754

We rode our bikes all the way down the beach ….here we are taking a break.  It was so beautiful out there! IMG_0761

French Toast at Dino’s Pancake House.  This is my Mom’s favorite breakfast place and it is now mine.

IMG_0762Here is the quilt I finished.  This star quilt is so fast!  I finished the top in a day …add some easy quilting and you are done!  That is all for now!  I will be back tomorrow to share my process on planning a quilt.

As Always, Sew Pretty!

I am just a girl trying to be crafty. Well really a woman but my thoughts are girly. I am embarking on a journey. I hope to complete all of my goals, share and learn from others.

  1. So glad you had a fun time! And of course you had to take your machine. It could not have gone any other way! Lol. Those quilts are so nice. Love the solid color selection on your Grandfather’s quilt.

  2. Glad to know I am not the only one taking a sewing machine on vacation!!
