Rotaries in bloom block and a bit of a retreat at the beach

I have received one of last months blocks in the DOD row by row MYSTERY sew a long and swap.
It is called a QUILTERS GARDEN.

Here it is from Linda Te.

I have 2 blocks to go with it and when I receive the last block for last month they will look so pretty together...
And here is the one from Phyllis

Now to move on to this months
Over at Deane's blog if you participate each month by making a block you get the following months pattern free.
It is a fun quilt. I'm not sure if I will have to add more blocks to make it up to a size..
I did get my 4 blocks done and will be sending 2 to the USA.

I am away this week and staying at a friends house enjoying the beautiful weather and the beach..

Here I am enjoying a walk along the beach and the beautiful weather.

Here we are at dinner with my friends. What a great night.

 My lovely hubby and I finally get a photo together

Where will we end up tonight? We are back on the road but not going straight home.....
