Sewing and Sailing

Today and tomorrow, I am spending the day in Ocala, Florida with quilters from The Country Road Quilters Guild, giving a lecture and workshop.  This time, I till try to remember to take more pictures!  (Seriously, Pam!!)

Beginning Saturday, I am off with a bunch of girlfriends on a week long quilting cruise!!  This time I am not the teacher, just the student, ready to have fun with my dear friends.  Three of my hometown BFF's and I will join 96 other ladies, some whom are national teachers like me, looking for a fun and sun-filled vacation to the Caribbean to just stitch and relax.

Sounds like fun, right?  If you've never been on a quilting cruise, you're missing a great time. My pals, Gloria, Vicky and Heather of Old Green Cupboard are hosting this party for teachers Lisa Bongean of Primitive Gatherings, and Stacy West of Buttermilk Basin.  If you know Lisa and Stacy's work, then there's no surprise this cruise is all about WOOL and HAND STITCHING!!  Yay!!!  I can hardly wait.  

Since I'm on a much needed vacation, and sailing in international waters, I won't be posting here, or on social media, but hope to have some photos to share and good times to report once I get home.  

Good bye to-do list...hello girlfriends!!  My needle, thread and I are about to be reacquainted!
