Birthday Celebrations and all that

Posted by Strlady at 5:00 AM
A few weeks ago my little sister celebrated her birthday.

She was our parents last hurrah and the best thing to happen to our family.
So when she asked me to join her for a girls night out, I had to say yes.

We first went to this Mediterranean restaurant (Terra Mediterranean Grill).
I'm not into Mediterranean food but the chicken kabobs were so good, I'm looking forward to going again.

I wish you could have seen it before I was through with it.
You will need to take my word on this one.

Then we headed to this place where you get to be artistic and drink enough so you feel artistic too! A Piece of Work is a studio that gives you a standard paint brush and a design to follow. They allow you to bring your own wine and snacks so it becomes a social event.

The entourage. That is the birthday girl on the right in yellow.

This was the goal. Our sample, so to say.

I quickly realized that this is not a place a quilter should go. Most quilters (I include myself in this general group), work in definites, precise measurements, no deviation from the rules... Controlled chaos is acceptable but free form... what is that?

Jessica knew things would not go well for me when I started measuring my canvas. It was not a stress free night. I think I would do better with a more abstract design. LOL!

Not my best showing.
I wish I had a picture of my sister's piece. 
She knocked it out of the park!

It was a fun night though and I won't hesitate in doing it again. 
Thanks Jess for dragging me out of my cocoon every once in a while. 
You are my favorite little sister EV'R!!!

What a fun birthday celebration!

If I'd been handed a paint brush I would have been close to hyperventilating. LOL

You did an awesome job. And I'm happy you stepped out of your comfort zone. Ther's lots of fun stuff going on outside that zone!
