A relaxing weekend

It has been a while since I've worked on a sewing project. I under estimated how long it was going to take so here is a sneak peek. Thanks for all your wonderful comments!

Sunday night I celebrated my grandfather's 80th birthday at my aunt's house in Redwood City. I was pleasantly surprised to see my cousin Dominique came back from LMU for the long weekend.

I watched Funny Face and was so inspired from the opening title sequence. It is aesthetically beautiful. I love that there was a photographer character and a darkroom!

Speaking of a darkroom, I developed my photos from my trip to Bodie and scanned a few.

I went to a BBQ at my Aunt Sandra's house for Memorial Day. It was great to see the family and relax. We had fruit on skewers and wonderful apple pie.I found this lying on my grandma's table today and had to take a picture. Just adore them!

My mom bought my grandma a new shirt. Isn't she adorable modeling it? This is a perfect example of using a wide angle lens up too close. Notice how the lower body looks smaller because I'm shooting down.

And Dan felt that you should all read this: "Weeeeeeeeeeeee... are the Knights who say........... 'NI!' "

the first time I cut my hair I donated it and I haven't let it grow out since. So my husband made a bet with me that I couldn't go a whole year without cutting my hair!
