Creekside Quilting Newsletter 02/19/2019
Well I'm back and I landed with memories of... Fun Patrick Lose Sewing Projects....
San Juan, Puerto Rico
Seeing for the first time in my life, the Caribbean Sea at St. Maartin, and dipping my feet into the warm water....The lush Rain Forest and marina in Antigua...but by far, my favorite island was St. Lucia and the Batik Factory! AND THE VIEW! Breathtaking!
The gorgeous blueness of the water in Barbados And I made a friend in St. Kitts...wanted to bring him home, but not sure how my Maggie would have felt about "our" new friend!
Lastly, the gorgeous sunrises & sunsets The welcome home scenery was just a little different! And I couldn't do any of this with out the amazing staff that I have!! A HUGE THANK YOU to Barb, Pat, Sue, Patty, Karen, Marge, Fran, Janice, Rhonda, Diane, Dianne, Debby, Judy, and Laura!! Each of you are so talented and a blessing to have working at Creekside Quilting....THANK YOU!!!
