The Ship's Reunion!

On Sunday, August 8th, we left for Michigan to go to George's ship's reunion in Mackinaw City, Michigan.  We stayed the first night in Niagara Falls, Canada. Then we drove through Canada to Port Huron, Michigan.  That was about 4 hours from our destination.  We got to Mackinaw City and after getting set up at the campground there, we went to a dinner with the shipmates.  Very nice.
This was the view from the campground.  Cool and relaxing.
They got a tour of the new ship, Mackinaw.
They coast guardsmen and women who are on the new ship, fed us and they posed for a picture.  We all enjoyed it.

Motorhome Rally


We are in Springfield, MA at a motorhome rally.  There is a group of quilters that make quilts and give them to a nearby charity.  This year it was the Ronald McDonald house.  We meet and show what we've made before they get hung up in the hall.  They received over 100 quilts this time.  On the top picture I made the one at the top with whales in the center and the one on the right that's pink and blue.  On the bottom picture, I made this one that I feel is for a boy.  I love the blue and red!

More Beautiful Quilts!


Love these two!  Look at the eyes on the girl at the bottom!  Amazing!!
I made the whale quilt for my cousin's daughter-in-law's shower!  Her theme is nautical and whales.  Came across this pattern and thought she'd love it.

Quilting Expo in Worcester



My friend, Peg, and I drove to Worcester to go to the Quilting Expo on Friday.  It was nice and but not many of the displayed quilts inspired me as much as in the past.  I did think the top one was pretty and did a close up of it.  Lot of work.  It must have been a day for baskets because this is another one that I thought was pretty.

Our Father and Family!

Our cousin sent this picture to me and my two brothers.  This is my father's family.  I never saw a picture of him as a boy, so this is wonderful.  In the back is his father, his older brother, Joe, his mother, and his mother's sister.  Then in the front from left to right is our Dad, his younger brother and his sister.  Lovely!

Our Dad is on the right and his friend is next to him.  This was taken in West Palm Beach when he was quite young.  Looks like a nice place and so good to see him young and healthy.
