WoooooooHooooooooo!!!

Happy dancing go001ing on here…..the Eye Spy quilt top is done. I had planned to work on it for the Friday Night Sew In, but working on it a bit each day, well I just couldn’t stop. Whewwww..it feels so good to have this done and I know both of the Little Polka Dots will enjoy it.


Now I’m tackling the 16 patches for Darlene’s “Between Friends” quilt pattern. There will be 35 16 patches and I have 10 pieced but all the rows for others done. This will be a great Friday Night Sew In project. Tammy has her top done except for borders……so Swell!!!!!!!!!!!


Mr. Polka and I have a big adventure ahead of us. A week from today we leave for a cruise003 to The Panama Canal. This has been in the works for quite a long time and it didn’t really seem real till I got the passports out and suitcases down. Now to figure how to pack 1 suitcase a piece for a 15 day trip. Don’t you just love Mr. Polka Dots duct tape passport cover?!!! We are so excited and going with a great group of friends. We tried to talk Hunka and Ms . Red in to going……seriously, that would have been way too much for one cruise ship!!


Happy week everyone!

WOW! My husband would be jealous. He wants to cruise the Panama Canel one of these days. Can't wait to hear all about the trip!

Nanette Merrill and daughters said...

Cute cute stuff. I would say I'm jealous of your cruise and I am. But I am afraid of being out in the water in a cruise ship. I'm getting more phobic the older I get!

Linda said...

Bon Voyage to you and Mr. Polka Dot...

I love the eye spy quilt. Wasn't that a lot of work - the hexagons?
Wow. Good work!

I'll be on that next cruise. You know I had to go and get a job. What the hell was I thinking?? A cruise would have been so much more fun. Can you imagine us on that ship for all that time?? lolol We'll just have to get ready for our other trip. :-)

Oh that I Spy quilt is so cute! I started one years ago and have a million hexagons ready to go, but they never went. I admire your tenacity with that! Have a blast on your trip!
