South Beach

Birthday Celebration Friday night at the International Auto Show.  Six of us went to the show and we all picked out 'our' car.  I love the 4-door Porsche.  Imagine!  The Stingray wasn't too bad either.  There were very few antique autos but the Batmobile - See picture.  After the show, we walked to Lincoln Road and ate at NEXXT Cafe.  The crab cakes were so good.  We got home around 1:30 a.m.  South Beach is a different world. People watching was entertaining. The art deco buildings are fabulous, however, seeing the Apple icon on one of them was a bit disconcerting.  Ah, the old and the new.
Saturday the Quilt guild appreciation luncheon and class after with Barb of Flamingo Island Designs. Floozie was at the park visiting her friends. The class was about making a fabric picture using applique technique.  Very interesting and informative. She is full of great ideas and tidbits on what to do and how to do it.  I was able to take my new machine the Janome DC2010 I purchased at Laura's Sew and Vac. You can catch a glimpse of her new web site.
Sunday was a craft show.  My chance to show the pillow I made for Phyllis and Fred that matches the bows.  They loved it.  She asked for bows, but they also received a pillow decorated with one of my crochet butterflies, just because.
So far I've had a great 3 day weekend.  But it's not over.  I won the drawing at Aunt Pitty Pats because I was in the Apron Swap.  Take a look and see what I won. I guess, maybe I'll carry my birthday celebration all year long - why not?  Everyone sure is cooperating.  My sister called Sunday night and I was able to talk to Daddy (93 and witty as ever).  What a wonderful world and so many wonderful people in it.
Blessings, Janet
