Before I went away, I sent this Birthday gift to my friend, Sheila in Illinois.
It was one of those "big" Birthday's so I decided to make a red and white in remembrance of her visit to the exhibit, just about a year ago.
Here you can see the scale better. The blocks are 4" finished and there are 70, hhhmmmm, coincidence?
I used this red and white toile' on the backing and apparently it goes with Sheila's dining room.
My favorite home away from home: Holland America Line.
We were aboard the newest ship: The Nieuw Amsterdam.
It was beautiful.
Top picks from the trip:
The Crow's Nest, we came everyday after breakfast, and then for team trivia. The views are beautiful.
On Grand Cayman we took a submarine tour - it was incredible. We went 115 ft. down, and hey, I didn't even have to get wet :)
There are some bright blue fishes near the bottom of the shot.
Here is a hut that we "owned" for a day at Mahogany Beach, Honduras.
One of our favorite activities on board is sitting on Deck 3, Promenade deck, and watching the ocean go by....
And now there are dishes to do, laundry to fold and a dog to be walked. I guess I'm back in Jersey all right!
Hope you all had a great week and I look forward to catching up on my blog reading.
