On vacation

Not much sewing done but I have done a little drawing for block nine. Not at all sure I will use any of them, they are just ideas, we shall see.It's strange the birds here are mostly sea birds, cormorants and pelicans and now I have the urge to draw them, and of course they would be no good for the BOM at all. Maybe for a later project..

I had a little foray to the island quilt shop and I thought I was quite restrained. I bought two lots of fabric to make pajamas. I chose one and Mr M chose the second, Mr M's is the one with all the writing on, I chose the red, also some lovely taupes and some embroidery cottons for my appliqué...

It is Fantasy Fest here on the island and It is great fun. No1 son was in the Zomby ride (Mr M cried off bad back). A lot of fun was had making him up and dressing up his bike.

Last year I posted about Tu Tu Tuesday, so I reckon you don't need to see us again in our Tu Tu's... It was great fun though.

One of the best things we do while we are here is fishing, and I must show you. Me with the best fish I have cought this year, we think it was a red Grouper, but he lived to fight another day.I put him back in the water.

He was big enough to take back for tea, and so pretty, well at least I thought so, Mr M thought he was pretty ugly...

I am going to sit by the pool this afternoon and sew some of my little hexies.




Keep safe and keep stitching.......Doti...
