Spring Issue Stitch Magazine!

I was going thru a stack of magazines that have been piling up on my sewing table the other night and I found this new issue of “Stitch” magazine …

And when I opened to page 23 I found this …

A Crochet Project Gets Finished!

With all that’s been going on around here, I’ve still managed to check a project off my UFO list.

It started with this lovely pile of yarn …

A close up of the beautiful colors and textures in the lovely pile of yarn …

Granny Square started …

DSCN9427

Getting larger …

DSCN9640

And finished!

DSCN9655

This is my very first Granny Square ever!

It used up more yarn than I thought it would and I was hoping for a slightly larger square, but I still love it. It’s big enough to throw over the back of a dining room chair to add some color and texture.

On to the next project! Learning to knit is still on the list.

Savannah Recap!

Mary and I have been traveling so much lately, but we are finally home again and catching up an all the things that need to be done. It actually feels very good to sleep in my own bed! But I want to share a few more of the pictures from our fun trip to Savannah.

Such a beautiful place!

DSCN9524

I would so love to live down this small street. Gorgeous tree! Lucky dog!

DSCN9532

This was one of my favorite houses when we toured some of the oldest homes in Savannah.

Sea gulls trying to eat me …

DSCN9568

Some of the girls attending “mandatory stay in your pajamas and sew day 2″.

DSCN9420

There was also a mandatory underwear change that day.

Mary doing something?

DSCN9499

It could be she’s praying for her BBQ sandwich to arrive soon.

Lots of fun quilts …

DSCN9414

And the gate to Sandra Bullock’s house on the island …

DSCN9556

I’m sure she appreciates me posting this!

What a great relaxing and beautiful place to visit.  And the company we had wasn’t bad either!

Love you all!

Things are jumping around here with new fabrics shipping to the stores and new fabrics arriving to make our market quilts.

Boxes arriving …

DSCN9795

Stacks of new fabrics to introduce …

DSCN9474

And cutting lots of strips …

DSCN9674

I know I’m a tease but I can’t help it!
We’ll be able to show you more in a few weeks. I might be able to show you the new pattern covers by then too! This is the best job EVER.

Sorry about the teasing … LOL!

Sailing Away!

We had such a great time on our recent Stitchin Heaven cruise to the Caribbean!

And met some great new quilting friends!

DSCN9014

The ship was beautiful and bigger than I could have imagined. We were on the Allure, it’s one of the biggest in the fleet. There were even trees growing in the open areas of the ship …

DSCN9219

Can you imagine trees growing on a ship? There were beautiful things to look at everywhere!

DSCN9061

I have a thing for glass sculpture and I actually have about 30 photos of these birds. I must have taken a picture every time I walked past them.

We stopped in 3 different ports between our sewing days. One of which was a private beach in Haiti. This was my view for several relaxing hours …

DSCN9036

It was fun until Karla almost got eaten by Jaws!

DSCN9194

Good thing I was around to save her life! I pushed her quickly out of the way and threw that guy in the background into the fish instead! Maybe we should have stayed at the pool with some fellow quilters that day!

DSCN9055

Gina, one of our fellow cruisers adopted a puppy from the Humane Society in Cozumel. It was love at first sight!

DSCN9197

And Bella got a souvenir with my small donation to the cause!

DSCN9769

This is her “my Mom went on a quilting cruise” look … and all I got was this dumb poncho! Why can’t I have what’s in the pantry instead?

We got surprised by some towel folded animals in our cabin every few days. But I think our cabin person needs to go back to towel folding school . We have no idea what our animals were …

DSCN9067

I’m not sure which is the front and back. Maybe a dino-dog ?

How about this one?

DSCN9229

I call this one “brain with lips”.

We had so much fun!

DSCN9043

And even MORE fun!

DSCN9234

Darn … I wish Mary hadn’t taken this photo of me running into the restroom!

DSCN9224

Come sail away!

DSCN9090

Thanks for all the fun and great memories ladies!
