I was busy on our trip.

I completed 9 more blocks for the Mary Mannakee quilt on our last trip. Applique is a great take along project. 14 down and 11 more to go then the border appliques. We will be on the go again and I'm busy prepping the rest of the blocks.







We didn't plan to be traveling back-to-back-to-back but when our best friend had major heart failure, we postponed this upcoming trip from March to now. I hope to be able to blog onboard without it costing an arm-and-a-leg. See you on-line.
