Michael and I have enjoyed a much needed relaxing and fun long weekend…..
It started on Saturday with a trip to visit Michael’s friend, Ron and his wife, Nina. They live in South Carolina on a wonderful 70 acre farm and we had a blast!!!
The first order of business was some skeet shooting…..
Now, the other three are SO good at it and I am horrible, so after a few pathetic shots, I started tending to the bird thrower …..
MUCH more fun!!!
After dinner they took us for a walk around their property and a good chance to try out the new camera some more…..
I am so happy with the depth of field that it allows!!!
As it got dark and a bit chilly, the bonfire helped keep us warm……
Once again I had a fun time playing with the camera in the firelight…..
….all the while remembering this quilt by Terry Grant (check her blog here)…..
In the morning, we moved on to the pistol range…..
Fortunately I am a bit better with a hand gun !!!!
We drove back smelling heavily of gun powder but with BIG smiles on our faces!!!
That evening we went to a Low Country Boil with a bunch of our friends from Church.
Monday meant time for yard work, swimming at the neighborhood pool, and a bit of time for us to do what we love which meant I headed to the studio. I am currently working on the backing for this quilt top…..
A truly enjoyable weekend!!!!!
