This weekend was wonderfully sunny & fun filled. We kicked it off with a Friday night out with some dear friends at an Italian restaurant…Casa Mia’s
Good Food ~ Good Times ~ Good Friends ~ Always Wonderful…Yum-O.

Saturday we took our pup to a Boxer Meetup…There’s an online site that puts different groups of people together. You can check it out at http://www.meetup.com/ . We were excited to find a Wonderful group of fellow Boxer Owners to chat with and learn about the breed.. There were over 15 boxers...and Jasmine played with them ALL... It was such fun to watch boxers boxing as they do with each other.. They also talk alot while their playing and other dogs don’t know what to do… Pretty sure she had a blast...she had tons of dreams when she was home sleeping... *giggle*
Sunday was all about sunshine, relaxing and a little sewing. I worked a bit on my flowerbeds, so I could enjoy some more of the sunshine. Mr Fantastic enjoyed the Superbowl. I watched a few of the commercials.. I have to admit I really loved the Betty White for "the Voice" and Matthew Broderick for Honda commericals.
While Mr Fantastic watched the Game, I started on a Table Runner for my dining room table. This one will be for Valentine's Day :) I just LOVE it. I found this Kit at an online Quilt shop that was at the NW Quilt Show last Fall. The shop is called The Quilted B. (Click on name for link) It's a wonderful online shop, I definitely recommend checking it out. Barb has some Wonderful kits ready to sew together. This little beauty is called "B'Lovely Heart Runner".

Didn't quite get it finished on Sunday...
I did Free Motion Hearts on the background and stippled the main border. S~I~L and I decided to take a sewing vacation day, as her boys had today off from school and I can't resist a day to sew. I think it turned out Adorable. She had the extra buttons to set it off. It looks perfect on my table ;)
