Here's a little vintage block I quilted  and bound to make a doll size quilt.
This past week I've been trying to gather a few bits of handiwork to take on the cruise. This WAS one of them...oops...finished already...

Something doesn't feel quite right about working with wool on a cruise but that is what I will be doing. I've been prepping the remaining Bible blocks this week.

 Hmm, Jesus and an angel on my floor.
Time to clean up my mess and find the suitcase!!

  4. Hey, a cruise is all about doing what you want to do. At least there is no cooking for a while! THAT would be just so wrong!

  10. How did you do it--finishing something without intending to?
    I admit that I have never had a strong desire to go on a cruise--until I heard about this one. Sounds so fun! It will be interesting to get the different perspectives from you and Bonnie on your return. I know they will both be full of good times!

  11. I love the 2 color pieces! Have a great trip. I didn't comment on your Blind Man's Fancy, so many others did. I thought it was fabulous, one of the nicest quilts I've seen in blogland in a long time! Happy Sailing!

  27. Where does the cruise go? It has been a long time since we took a cruise. The one we had the most fun on was the one from Los Angeles down the Baja Peninsula to Cabo San Lucas.
