HOME SWEET HOME

We are finally back from world travels and glad to be home for a while. We had a great time exploring new vistas,
making new friends
and absorbing new cultures.I finished the last 11 blocks for my Mary Mannakee replica. The center 25 are done and now for the borders (that seems simple after the center is done.) Before you think I did nothing but sew, just remember we were 30 days on the ship and lots of opportunity to sew while sitting, listening, or waiting for something to happen.
