Tips and Humor From Kaye....

Quilting Cruises

I have been fortunate enough to take quilters on a cruise once or twice a year. We have classes, lectures, and sharing while at sea. In the ports we are free to shop or take the tours. This is one of the funny things that has happened while we have cruised.

"George" The Quilter

One of the quilting cruisers came to dinner carrying a small box.

I asked, "What's in the box?" She said, "It's George."

I knew I should not have asked, but.... carrying on, I said, "George must have really liked to cruise."

She said, "George would never go on a cruise, George would never let me cruise and George did not like quilters or quilts. Now George goes on a quilting cruise twice a year."

So George came to every meal and every class. We all said, "Hi, George." His box was featured on a quilt in the center of our group pictures.

Join us on our next quilting cruise, Feb 16-23, 2013 in thge Caribbean.

Fun Facts For Today, May 30, 2012....

May 30, 1783 - The Pennsylvania Evening Post became the first daily newspaper published in America.

May 30, 1922 - The Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C., was dedicated. The Memorial was designed by architect Henry Bacon and features a compelling statue of "Seated Lincoln" by sculptor Daniel Chester French.

May 30, 1943 - During World War II in the Pacific, the Aleutian Islands off the coast of Alaska were retaken by the U.S. 7th Infantry Division. The battle began on May 12 when an American force of 11,000 landed on Attu. In three weeks of fighting U.S. casualties numbered 552 killed and 1,140 wounded. Japanese killed numbered 2,352, with only 28 taken prisoner, as 500 chose suicide rather than be captured.

Birthday - Founder of the Russian empire Peter the Great (1672-1725) was born near Moscow. He vastly increased the power of the Russian monarchy and turned his backward country into a major power in the Western world. Among his accomplishments, he completely overhauled the government and the Greek Orthodox Church as well as the military system and tax structure. He built St. Petersburg, established printing presses and published translations of foreign books, modernized the calendar, simplified the Russian alphabet and introduced Arabic numerals. He died at age 52 and was succeeded by his wife Catherine.

Show 'N Tell....

I started this quilt way back in 2000-ish. Found the Cowgirls (Moda - Lynn Brown paintings) at Quilt Festival in Houston and knew that they were perfect for a quilt for my Mother in Law, who was a cowgirl in her younger days and a darn good barrel-racer with her horse Goldie....Rebecca

Canned Frogs! LOVE IT!!.....Antonia
