A Little Vacation Time

A little vacation time on Long Island. Over the
Verrazano Bridge I went. Hardly any traffic so
I could get a quick pic with my cell phone.
This bridge connects Staten Island and Brooklyn -
The view is spectacular - you see ships, fire boats,
and the Statue of Liberty.

St. John's
Cold Spring Harbor
founded 1835

On the grounds of the Aquarium

My daughter and I took a ride up to Cold Spring Harbor.
In all of the years that I lived here; I was never there.
It's a very beautiful part of Long Island and a little
hilly - the rest of the island is mostly flat.

The following photos are from the Veterans Memorial
at Eisenhower Park, East Meadow, L.I. For all of the
heroes of past wars.

What a beautiful tribute to our Veterans!

*******************************Back to the quilty stuff

Another Improv quilt from left over fabric and blocks
from another quilt.

I did a little free form quilting with some rectangles, squares etc.

No particular pattern - just roaming - improv free form - I like it!

This quilt is going to be a charity quilt for my guild.
