Hello Everyone

I know that I haven't had much quilty stuff on lately, but I can guarantee that I am doing quilty things everyday. Although on Sunday, my friend Pam and her hubby invited us to their boat for a little sailing on the Long Island Sound. So I thought I would share our most gorgeous summer day with you. These are some of the things that we saw on our little cruise.

A beautiful light house on the shore of Connecticut.

My hubby and our fearless Captain Chris.

Beautiful "cottages" on the Connecticut shoreline.

All sails were up and we were cruising on a beautifully sunny day.

Isn't this a great light house? I have never seen one like this before!

My daughter, myself, and my hubs.

My friend and fellow quilter, Pam and her wonderful sidekick, Maddie.

Guess who lives here? The inventor of the Segway! You probably heard the story of him going off a cliff on a Segway and not surviving. Well, it wasn't the inventor, it was the owner of the company that went off the cliff.

Captain Chris informed us that this is a lottery boat. When I asked what that meant, he said that is what people buy when they win the lottery.... LOL!! It was BIG too!

Aren't these houses cute? Pam and I were planning which ones to purchase and then we would live next to one another and quilt all the time!

We thought this was a neat house, almost igloo like.

I just had to take a photo of this. Don't you wonder what goes on there?

So yes, it was a long day and Maddie was all tuckered out from the sun and fun.

But I couldn't leave without showing you this boat. Hmmm... sometimes you just have to wonder.

Oh, now for the winner of the Kona Fat Quarter Bundle....

There were 158 entries and #40 was the winner! Congratulations goes to

I have sent you an e-mail, just get your address to me and they will be whisked away into your hands really soon.

Until Next Time...
