Vacation edition 2

We only have a few more days of vacation.  We've really been enjoying ourselves.  What's not to like with a little of this everyday....

and this.....

and occasionally this too.....

I'm beginning to wonder if this vacation will ever end.  That's a good sign, right?

Don't forget that Craftsy is having a summer sale through 7/21.  Each day has a different set of classes discounted.  Some classes are a really great deal.

Craftsy Sweet Summer Sale 7/17-7/21

There are a couple of really great classes in today's selection:
  • Free Motion Feathers by Angela Walters - her classes are fantastic, but this one covers those elusive feathering skills.  Angela is really good at explaining how to quilt designs and gives you the confidence to try them out.
  • Quilt As You Go Patchwork Bag by Tara Rebmen - one of my pre-vacation regrets was that I didn't finish up one, or a few, of these bags.  They look so versatile and attractive.  Plus I enjoyed learning some techniques in addition to the quilt as you go method, including installing a magnetic snap and two kinds of zippers.  I really like this project and am warning you guys in advance that several bags are going to be made by me when I return home.  They may be my go-to Christmas gift for several of my friends.
Until next time,



  1. the holiday look great, and the turtle, how amazing is it that you saw one on the wild!

  2. I would love to see a turtle "in the wild" How very fun. And, you will be glad to know I used your link and bought yet more Craftsy classes. They are the best. Your vacation looks wonderful.


I LOVE comments, they make my day! Most of the time I am too distracted to respond right away, but I DO read them...always.

When I respond, I usually do it via email. Sometimes Google makes this easy and sometimes it doesn't. I usually only reply when it is easy. Just sayin.

Obviously, I can't reply to you at all if you are a no reply blogger. Also, sorry to Anonymous commentors, too much spam lately. You will have to leave a comment another way.

Have a Super Sparkly Day!
