a few more things...

I just put a down payment on my January 2008 (aka "next") vacation for a cruise to the southern Caribbean! (My first "real" cruise.)

Now I have the proper motivation to diet (eat healthier & exercize more)!

My cats in trees fabric has arrived at the quilt shop! (I was DREAMING about how to use it, so I could not not get it.)

Now for my new book to arrive...

Lucky you! I've been on 2 cruises and they are the best value for the money. All the different ports and countries. We went on the western Caribbean and Alaska. It was surreal returning from the Caribbean in January-beautiful beeches and sunshine and we drove home from Miami to Kentucky and drove through snow half the way home. It was great though-very relaxing. Don't plan on dieting there, the buffets are killer!

A cruise . . . how exciting! I've been catching up on your blog. Your quilts are great. Thanks for sharing so many details about your cat quilt.

What fun to do a cruise, sounds exotic. Just don't watch Titanic or Poseidon the night before!! (I watched Poseidon the night before I went on a cruise, not a good idea!!!)

Love the batik pinwheels. Enjoy your cruise! I took one two years ago and am ready for another one. Bon voyage!

Woohoo, high fives all around. A cruise sounds fabulous!

Oh, love the cat fabric. And let us know how the book is, whether it has good patterns. The cover pattern is very attractive.

A cruise sounds great! And good motivation for getting in shape. Great cat fabric - in trees - so cute. Are you staying warm up there? it was 19 here this morning.

Oh a cruise. Good for you. I've never been, but I've heard all sorts of good things about cruises.

I've never been a'cruisin' but I'd love to go one day. You'll love it, I'm sure. The cats in trees is WONDERFUL!

We did an Inside Passage cruise once. I bought a nice dress to wear for it, several months before the cruise, then had to diet off 30 pounds just to fit into it. It's a nice dress, & that was the only time I've ever got to wear it. I wore it the 3rd night of the cruise, & by the 5th night I couldn't have fit into it! THey feed you too well!
But it was fun!

The "cats in trees" fabric is so cute. Do you have a plan for it? I never have a plan for fabric I buy.

Sound like the cruise will be great - I think they feed you so much on those cruises that you almost have to be 15 lbs below goal weight before you go! Thats why I've never been on a cruise yet -LOL
