Sailing Away!

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

And met some great new quilting friends!

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 …

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.

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!

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 …

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

How about this one?

I call this one “brain with lips”.
