Sailing Away Under the Milky Way





We have a winner!
Thank you for entering the little giveaway for Hat Trick!
Please remember that even if you didn't win and you still would
like a pattern... Carrie has them in her on line store and you can even 
choose the PDF pattern and have it in your hot little hands instantly..
well, almost instantly!
I did a random.org pick and the lucky person is 
 Lisa D. said...
I'm in! Please add me. :)
Thanks so much, that was fun!
edit: Lisa already has the pattern and wants me to pick another winner...
so...
Mary on Lake Pulaski! You are it!
She said:
I want to join in again Sinta but don't have the Hat Trick pattern yet - add my name to the hopper!

I might have to do that every month!
And guess what!
I just got back, like right this very minute, a quilt from my long arm quilter...
Milky Way!




 I guess my plans this weekend will be to bind this quilt.


what do you think?
Maybe another winner? I hope so... 
I love this pattern by Fig Tree & Co, but couldn't wait for
Avalon to come out... so I used MY "Bloggers Choice" bundle from
Fat Quarter Shop... yes, there are still more bundles available!
Here is a photo of Joanna's Milky Way from Pinterest.
In the mean time...
the kit for this arrived...
I can't wait to start ... and Sail Away!
Which is just the mood I'm in!
Did I tell you that we got our boat slip back?
I know that sounds kind of odd, but after a dozen years of being on a wait list
at the lake for a mooring, we got ours... but the very next year they started working
on the dam and therefore the water level was pretty low. Consequently, the "newest" people with boat slips had to give theirs up white the work continued.  It was a 4 year project as it turns out. So finally...
finally, we get a letter saying that we can have our slip next month! Yeah!
Other than quilting... sitting and doing nothing at the lake is my favorite thing to do!

Love your quilt. I've been sailing away today with my quilt kit from Fig Tree. Eight small sails and eight large sails are finished. I am in love with the Avalon fabric collection.

First, that quilt is stunning! The quilting is marvelous on it!!!
That photo of the lake, made me swoon! I shall have to live vicariously through you this summer. We shall be bobbing along on our Big Bear Lake, and I will be thinking of you, bobbing along on Bass Lake!!! Such a wonderful pleasure it is!!!
We may bring the boat up this weekend and put it in the slip. We get a season slip from April to October.

I can only imagine how excited you are to get your slip back at the lake. We just love our lake too.
