A Sound Day... and A Winner!

Hello Everyone

I know that I haven't had much quilty stuff on lately, but I can guarantee that I am doing quilty things everyday. Although on Sunday, my friend Pam and her hubby invited us to their boat for a little sailing on the Long Island Sound. So I thought I would share our most gorgeous summer day with you. These are some of the things that we saw on our little cruise.


A beautiful light house on the shore of Connecticut.


My hubby and our fearless Captain Chris.


Beautiful "cottages" on the Connecticut shoreline.


All sails were up and we were cruising on a beautifully sunny day.


Isn't this a great light house? I have never seen one like this before!


My daughter, myself, and my hubs.


My friend and fellow quilter, Pam and her wonderful sidekick, Maddie.


Guess who lives here? The inventor of the Segway! You probably heard the story of him going off a cliff on a Segway and not surviving. Well, it wasn't the inventor, it was the owner of the company that went off the cliff.


Captain Chris informed us that this is a lottery boat. When I asked what that meant, he said that is what people buy when they win the lottery.... LOL!! It was BIG too!


Aren't these houses cute? Pam and I were planning which ones to purchase and then we would live next to one another and quilt all the time!


We thought this was a neat house, almost igloo like.


I just had to take a photo of this. Don't you wonder what goes on there?


So yes, it was a long day and Maddie was all tuckered out from the sun and fun.


But I couldn't leave without showing you this boat. Hmmm... sometimes you just have to wonder.

Oh, now for the winner of the Kona Fat Quarter Bundle....

There were 158 entries and #40 was the winner! Congratulations goes to


I have sent you an e-mail, just get your address to me and they will be whisked away into your hands really soon.


Until Next Time...

Congratulations to the lucky winner!!! Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful day with us. I loved all the photos and I drooled over those gorgeous cottages. Wow!!! I especially loved the photos of the tuckered out Maddie (what a cutie), and the lovely boat with that great name "Breakin Wind"...so funny and yet, so appropriate, LOLOL. Hugs...

What a gorgeous boat trip you took, I love being on the water! I see there are plenty of little homes for you and all your friends! Wouldn't that be wonderful!
Congrats to Mommarock!

Jackie - that's the New London Lighthouse at the mouth of the Thames River. Years ago, when Em had his boat, we'd sail around it often. And those houses are all amazing. Looks like you had a great time!!!

Lovely pictures. So serene. If you guys buy one of those houses, pick up one for me too. I'd be a good neighbor in a house like that!

Tina said...

Lovely photos, Jackie! I recognized Ledge Light off New London, too. We lived in NL for a short time as newlyweds.

Char said...

Thanks for sharing your photos. They reminded me of many happy days on the Chesapeake.

Victoria said...

Spectacular! Love the wonderful architectural finds, and anything dealing with water and a beautiful coastal view is my idea of a slice of Heaven!

Stormy Days said...

That looks like a wonderful day. Thanks for sharing.

Patty said...

Nice pictures thanks for sharing.

Jo said...

Your post just made my day! I grew up and spent most of my life in CT mainly in the New London area. I usually visit once a year in Feb. but couldn't make it this year and I haven't seen the shore in summer,or sailed the sound for many years! I reconize every one of your photos locations except the igloo house. In my youth I probably spent more time on Long Island Sound than I did on dry land. Thank you so much for sharing you day with us.

Ledge Light lighthouse. You could see it from the Pfizer offices in New London. Well, now the facility is owned by Electric Boat.
