Design Wall Monday

This is my very first design wall Monday! I'm just proud of myself for actually getting it done! lol

I've been working on these Pineapple blossom blocks for a while.

Sorry the picture isn't better, but you get the idea.

I didn't get to sew very much this weekend. DH and I have a new passion - bike riding! We used to ride alot when our kids were smaller and we had all 5 of them at home. We haven't even owned bikes for at least 10 years. So we're having to start out slowly to get back into it. Last weekend we rode 4 miles. Then we did some neighborhood riding around during the week. Then this past Saturday we rode for 6 miles. I'm hoping that this coming weekend we can do 10. My oldest and dearest friend, Dawn Marie, got us back into this. She does the 30 and 50 mile rides. I want to be just like her when I grow up! lol

After we went riding we took our two kids that are still at home to the coast. We've been in Florida for going on 3 months and this is the first we've made it! We had a wonderful time, then went to see Dawn Marie and her husband. It's amazing to us that we've been friends for 20 years growing up in Ohio, but we both end up in Florida just an hour away from each other!

Here are some pictures we took at the coast.

My three stooges.

DH building a sand castle!

A sea sponge that washed up on shore. We didn't know if it was alive or not so we threw it back in.

Tif and Jon playing in the water.


Any more questions about why we moved to Florida?lol

Back to work for me now. Head on over to Judy L's blog to see what everyone else is doing.

Happy Quilting!


  1. Congratulations on your first design wall posting! It's lots of fun!

  2. Love your design wall! I often joke that I have a design floor.

  3. That design wall gave me some great ideas. Thanks for the inspiration. “Sewing forever, housework whenever!”
