I would like to share with you all more photos of our Lovey Holiday last Summer. Below you will see some photos of the Rugged Coast Line of Maine. All the Lighthouses were very unique and a joy to see. It was so neat to see Queen Ann Lace blooming everywhere.
The quilt shop was called "Sewing By The Sea" and here is where I bought some really neat polar fleece to make myself a coat. I will have photos of it later.
All the photos below are of Bar Harbor a very tourist area along the Maine coastline. Here you could see the harbor very busy with all kinds of boats. Of course I had to take more photos of lovely blooming flowers.
During our holiday we also visited Vermont. It was so great to see many lovely church steeples that you see in Vermont magazines so often. Of course Vermont is also know for their many "Covered Bridges" which was fun to drive through. Below you will see a gorgeous Water Fall rushing through the middle of a small Vermont town. We walked across a small bridge that moved allot while walking on it to get this photo of this beautiful rushing falls. The store I took a photo of is the
"Vermont Country Store". I have been receiving catalog from this place for many many years. They have very unique "Old Fashion" stuff that was around when I was a kid. Neat to see.
One of the last places we stopped at was the "Shelbourne Museum"! They had 19 Antique Crazy Quilt being displayed. I felt very fortunate to see these lovely crazy quilt because they are not displayed for the public to see very often. Aren't they all precious beautiful works of art??
I think the top left Crazy Quilt was my very favorite. I thought the center of wild flowers was very unique. The maker's stitching was stunning. I stood for a very long time admiring all these quilts.
Below you will see more special things at the Shelbourne Museum. I loved their display of lovely flowers in the large urn. The top right building is where all the Crazy Quilts were housed. We also enjoyed chatting with the man in the "Loom" building. Several of his loom rugs and place mats were displayed for everyone to see.
On the Museum's grounds they have a small pond with a old fashion bench so you could set and relax and admire the flowers and the wee creatures swimming around. My sweetie was able to take a couple close up of a wee frog and turtle.
Below you will see more winter photos. This photo was taken a week ago. We now have snow that is above the center of our fence. I reckon we have at least 3 feet of snow in our front yard. Very Sad Face. VBG
I have been doing a bit of crocheting. Easter is my most favorite holiday for many reasons. So I decided to crochet a few Easter eggs and a basket. I also crochet a couple of wee mice. I plan to make more Easter eggs in many colors and maybe another basket. Isn't the we multi color mouse too cute. She is made from yarn called Baby Jacquard Flower Yarn. I think I will try to crochet a Easter Bunnie too. What do you all think of my newbie crocheting projects??
I hope you all have enjoyed seeing more photos of our holiday last Summer. They certainly bring back wonderful memories for me.
I will be gone for about a month. I am having unexpected knee surgery this coming week so I will be limping around for awhile. So I will have some extra time to do some more stitching and crocheting. Chat again with you all soon.
Take care all,
