If you click on the Scottish Bagpiper words below you can hear some Scottish Music.
I was intrigued to find out information on the Scottish Clan Campbell that my maternal grandfather belonged. He came from a small coastal town in Scotland called Bo'ness. He was a bagpiper! My goodness you have to have a lot of wind to blow and make sounds in those pipes, and were they ever loud!! I bet my Grandmother disposed of his bagpipes soon after they were married!! Ha Ha!!
This ship was called the U.S. Brig Niagara. It is a reproduction of the Commodore Oliver Perry's victorious vessel from the War of 1812's Battle of Lake Erie.
The Rubber Duck
And here the black boat is the El Galeon, a reconstruction of a 16th century Spanish galleon. It's homeport is Seville, Spain and it cruises waters worldwide and flies the flag of Spain.
The yellowish boat is the Dennis Sullivan which is a replica of a Great Lakes schooner. It's homeport is Milwaukee Wisconsin and it's normal cruising waters are that of The Great Lakes, Florida and the Bahamas! There were nine ships total. That was our Saturday!
I showed you this table runner I was working on two posts ago. I wasn't sure how I was going to lay it out and after much fooling around, I decided to go with the "Flying Geese" pattern. It is all ready to quilt, which I plan on doing some of it later today. I've never done free motion, so I have to go with just stick with the "stitch in the ditch" right now. I hope to learn free motion in the near future after a few projects are done.
My next project will be a lap size "Quilt Around the World" pattern that I am just learning to do. Here are the pink and green fabrics that I will be using. Wish me luck!!! My next post will be about all quilting and the adventure I am on!!
and Macy Kate too!!
