I've probably shared this picture before, but it never fails to make me smile when I see it again. In our little red Datsun pickup, decorated with toilet paper, heading off on the big adventure ahead.
Here is our 2019 Christmas card photo, taken at Sunset Cliffs in San Diego, one of our favorite places to visit.
Still smiling, many miles down the road!
While my mom was visiting over Christmas, she and my sister and I went to see "Little Women."
While I can't say this is my favorite movie version of the story, I still enjoyed it, especially all the young actresses who played the March sisters.
I loved this book -
I think Katherine Center is my new favorite author. A really good story about a young woman firefighter with a theme of forgiveness.
Remember when I made the tiny bowtie block for my Temecula Tiny Tree project?
Well, the other day I was playing around with the scraps that seem to be everywhere in my sewing room these days, and I made a few more!
Each bowtie is 2.75 inches square, so 4 of them should make a 5 inch square. If I make 36 bowties, I could have a 14 inch mini quilt for my sewing room wall. That sounds doable, right?! ;) I so love playing with little scrappy bits of fabric!
Hope you've found some things to like this week! Be sure to visit Not Afraid of Color for more "I Like Thursday" posts.
Happy Anniversary Diann. I love the photos of you and your husband :)
Happy Anniversary! Love the tiny bowties.
Happy Anniversary! :)
Happy anniversary! Lol on the toilet paper - :D
Happy Anniversary! Those bow ties are adorable.
Happy Anniversary! My husband and I just passed our 43rd anniversary in late December.
AWWWWW! Hi Diann! What a great photo of the two of you and Happy Happy Anniversary. That is so sweet! Yippee to 44 years together. Ahh - Little Women. I am going to pass on the movie, although it looks good and the actors look talented. Hmm, I'll have to give that book and author a try! Thanks for the idea. Yowza, those are tiny bowtie blocks. Hence the name, huh?! That will be a fabulous mini though!! Can't wait to see it. ~smile~ Roseanne
Happy Anniversary! I have you beat by a couple years but no wedding photos - we took off to the court house :( I of course wish now I had a photo!
Happy Anniversary..Love those photos of you and hubby. Those little blocks are so cute. You have more patience than I. For me, it's hard to match the joy of Little Women with June Allison and Peter Lawford in 1949. But, I'm looking forward to seeing this new one for the costumes alone.
Happy anniversary to you and DH. Love seeing the photo of you two in the car. Just look at his wavy hair!
Happy Anniversary! You were in our n'hood! We live up the street from Sunset Cliffs!!! Quite a place when the waves are big, huh??!!!
Happy Anniversary--I love those older pictures---
love those little bow ties, too nice job hugs, Julierose
I'll have to see if the library has that book, it looks like something I would enjoy! And I'm glad you liked Little Women. We hoped to go see it over Christmas but it didn't come to my mom's town. It's one of my favorite books and I'd heard this movie version was a little different. Happy Anniversary!! I loved seeing the wedding picture.
Happy Anniversary to a good-looking couple! Enjoy your day! I think I'd like that book just for the cover with all those bright, happy colors. I love the bowtie blocks!
Happy anniversary! How wonderful. We need to see Little Women - part of it was filmed in one of the dance halls I frequent. Those bow ties are so cute!
Diann, I love that book and Katherine Center! I've read a few books by her and love them all. I love your bow tie blocks. So small! Happy Anniversary!
Happy anniversary! You were babes in the woods in that old photo :)
Happy Anniversary!!! It's always so much fun looking back at our early years. Love the bowties!!
Happy Anniversary! Hope you had a wonderful anniversary celebration. The bow tie blocks are fun, but those are tiny! Happy stitching this week.
Happy Anniversary!!! You two are such a cute couple! Those teeny little blocks are so small! My goodness you are such a good quilter to be able to do precision work like that! Have a wonderful week Diann!
Happy Anniversary a few days late. We were driving to Florida so I've fallen behind on my blog reading. Your tiny bowties will make a cute hanging.
the picture of you two just married and tied by tp is amazing. I looked and looked, back and forth. I could have gone to school with you two, it's so of an era. 44 years and still friends and still sharing and smiling. A wonderful couple, we like you both so much.
The bowties are just. so. cute. I need to try some, so you cut the squares 1.5" ?
Happy Anniversary!! That picture is sooo cute!
Also cute are those bow tie blocks. Anything in miniature is always cute, right?
Congratulations on your anniversary Diann. I could not take my eyes away from the first picture - particularly the hair!!! Absolutely adorable!!!
Power to you for making tiny blocks. Four of these bowties will make one charm square of a block which will finish at 4.5"!!! WOW!!!
