What I've been doing while I haven't been here . . .

Again I have been absent from this space for weeks and weeks.
I guess it just means I have been busy.

Here are a few of the things I've been up to.
Cloud9 baby donation quilt for my guild, NYC Metro Mod.
Our first meeting is this Saturday and I can't wait
to get back into the swing of things with all my buddies!

A Mariner's Compass block for Earamichia.
It was way more challenging than I thought it was, 
but I'm glad I tried it out.

I've been making tiny pincushions too.
These hexies and pentagons are 1/2"
I gave the finished product to my mom before I took a pic,
but I mounted it on a cork and glued it into a little candle holder
with a tray at the bottom for thimbles and scissors.
Gonna have to look for more holders at tag sales!

I finally decided on a layout and setting fabric for my
Star Fever quilt from Quilting by the Lake.
When I finish this quilt, it is going to the silent auction
for the Breast Cancer Alliance luncheon in November.

I haven't just been sewing!
I am just home from a cruise with my mom, aunt and uncle.
We left NYC on a cold rainy day.

And luckily for us the sun came out the next day.
I've never been on a cruise before . . . 
it was very interesting.
I still have the vertigo. Hey! I'm a delicate flower.

Saw lots of mermaids along the way.

We did the New England Tour, so beautiful.
Bar Harbor was my favorite.

I even met a pirate!

Look at this old Singer sewing machine that they used to make sails.

I won't bore you will all my vacation pics!
That's what Facebook is for, hahaha.
I'll try to be better about checking in here.
You can always find me on Instagram.
