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!
