Awesome time had by all!

Time flies when you are in Barbados!   We had an awesome time, but before we knew it, it was time to get back on the plane and back to reality!  If you have the chance to go, I highly recommend that you go.  If you do go, make sure you take in a few of the local landmarks.  The first one we went to was an absolute delight.  Hunte’s Garden is a tropical paradise with too many beautiful plants and flowers to mention.  Here are just a very few of the photos I took…..

Another great place we visited was Sunbury Plantation House,  a 300 year old house filled to the brim with antiques and a room devoted to sewing machines….photo 5a

….and an antique quilt that caught my eye!

Of course, I checked out the back!

It was hard to tell how big the hexies were (none of us had a ruler!) but they are smaller than the ones I am working with.

The pattern was a little random, a little planned.

Of course, I found time to do a bit of stitching.

So now, back to the routine of sitting down to hand-quilt in the evening with a nice pot of tea!

  1. I’m working on a hexie quilt as well. I’m using 1 inch hexagons. I’ve gotten so obsessed, I haven’t picked up my applique in about a month!
    Looks like you had a great, relaxing time before the onset of colder weather. Thank you for sharing your memories.

  2. Love that first set of green leaves — they look like bargello, don’t they?

    Your hexie quilt looks awesome, and the hand quilting is gorgeous! Are you finding it hard to quilt? I’ve heard some hand quilters say EPP can be heavy going.

  3. Kerry – just catching up with your blog. So happy to see you made it to Sunbury Plantation – it’s awesome isn’t it? Loved all those sewing machines too!!! We were there about 5 years ago. A great landmark. Looks like you had a great vacation.
