American Beauty-Strawberry Hill

Day 86

This is the third block in the series, called Strawberry Hill. This one was a bit tricky but I felt really proud of myself when I got it done.

American Beauty-Encore

Day 85

This is the second block in the series. I just love the colors in these blocks. I'm actually doing double blocks each month to make two different quilts. One will be set in a black background pattern and the other in a white background.

Dog Pile?

Day 83

I don't know how they got in one crate like this, as big as they are.

I'm really behind posting my pictures. I guess it's not going to be 365 consecutive days with a woman of a certain age, but I'll get there eventually.

Ok, I Lied!

Day 83

This is not the last day of anniversary pictures! This was one of the views out our timeshare window. We were on the 7th floor. If you look close, about 1/2 inch from the South Point sign, you can see the Stratesphere. It's that pointy thing in the distance. 

This is the South Point Casino next door all lit up. It was a fun place. As well as the casino, it had an equestrian center, a bowling alley, a movie theater, restaurants and a bingo hall. We got to use Mike's senior discount at the movie theater and went to three movies for a total cost of $18.00 for the two of us.

We also got to go see Terry Fator. (He is the ventriloquist that does singing impressions that won America's Got Talent.) Because we went to our time share update, we got two tickets for $20.00.
I also got a lot of cutting done on some of my quilt projects and we just had a great time being together.
