crafty getaway

I got away over the weekend to a beautiful place on the Key Peninsula....oolala...My good friend Monica invited a few of us to her sister's family home on Mayo Cove. Eight of us were included in this wonderful invite but only six of us were able to make it...we missed you Kathi and Patty!!!

  beach bunnies

chilly but so happy

seashells from the sea shore

Monica and her sisters ...Therese, Joan and Marie

so beautiful

first tulip sighting

trillium in the woods

and there were family heirloom quilts at Therese and Orrin's

very old family quilts

love the orange center of this flower

 136 years old!!!

all hand done with beautiful fabrics

love the star design around the flower

so wonderful to see these quilts

this is Orrin's seaside workshop...full of family history  and great projects....

our great clam dig

Louise got her hands dirty before me

we ate clams and Korean beef around the fire that Orrin got started for us...

early morning walk with Carrie

Monica made special buckets for beach combing

good times in Mayo Cove....

Funny, there are no crafting photos....a few of us did a bit of scrap booking but mostly we enjoyed the fresh air and company of one and other...we are all hoping to be invited again real soon.....Thank you Therese and Orrin and Monica for sharing this wonderful spot with us!!!
Happy Monday to all!!
