Read about this lonely quilter on a deserted island…

Tropical Trip

I really AM on an island.

Okay, it’s a BIG island, filled with people and stores, condos and restaurants–but I might as well be stranded!

I turned binding on a quilt at the poolside all afternoon and not a single person looked my way or even pretended to show interest in the quilt I was working on.  I mean, really!

This IS a civilized community…or wait, doesn’t everyone bring their quilts on vacation?

Well…I do! The featherweight, hand-stitching, pre-cuts and at least one or two extra projects for the trip here and home again get packed along with a few clothes.

You never know–it could rain all week! Always be prepared (I was a scout).

Besides, I can get a LOT accomplished in my little cubby (under the bunk bed down the hall) while my family tools around the condo getting tanning lotion on, watching TV, or just plain putzing around ’til it’s time to hit the beach. I also LOVE to take pictures of the quilts I’ve finished during the year at the beach and poolside–the colors pop in the early morning light and there is just something about quilts with water and sand that make them sing!

So packing light for vacation doesn’t apply to All Things Quilting–not on my island, anyway!
