Well, I'm back from vacation. We went to Acadia National Park in Maine. I have never been to a more beautiful place. Absolutely breath-taking! We hiked and drove around the park, and wandered through all the little towns and harbors. We were there just before peak season, so the crowds weren't there yet. We went whale watching and saw 2 whales. That was amazing! Such enormous creatures! And best of all, it was still spring there! So I got to enjoy wildflowers, rhododendrons, azaleas, lupines and other spring flowers all blooming abundantly. That was an unexpected and lovely surprise. I took many, many photos. Here are a few.

Well, now that vacation is over, it is time for me to get busy and get some new things in my Etsy shop. I haven't listed anything new for awhile, but I have some ideas for some new things. I just have to figure out when I'm going to sew. My kids are keeping me very busy running them to swim practices.

I also got my partner's name for the Doll Quilt Swap. I designed a little quilt today, so now I can get busy and put it together. I can't wait to see how it turns out!

That's all for now!

One more day...

Then school is out for the summer! The year has been long and I'm glad it is over. I still have to figure out when I'm going to get my sewing time in...we rarely seem to be at home in the summer. But, since we leave for vacation on Saturday, I'll have lots of time to think about it.

I always try to take a sewing project - or two, along when we travel. I can work in the car and in the evenings after the kids are in bed. I'm planning a hand applique project, but I still have to gather up my fabrics. I wanted to use only my stash, but I'm a little short of greens and yellows. I'll just have to stop by the fabric store for a last minute fix before we load up the car.

I was wandering around the internet as I often do in the evening and I found a wonderful doll quilt swap that I've signed up for. I'm really excited to participate. What fun to make a sweet little quilt to send to a new friend and get one in return. Here's the link:

Well, that's enough for today's post. I don't know when I'll have internet access while we're travelling so that might be it until I get home. I'm going to be very busy the next few days. But I should have lots of pictures!

Until then!
