Ahoy, me mateys!
Me be Cap’n Tu-Na. Me be back from our shoppin’ adventure ‘n and now me be protectin’ ‘n stowin’ th’ loot which me captured.
Shiver me timbers! Me didn’ plan t’ be a pirate again but some thin’s jus’ couldn’t be helped. Me been recuperatin’ from eye surgery that me had scheduled shortly aft we returned from thee 2017 Quilt Minnesota Shop Hop. While me been away from sewin’ ‘n readin’ n’ ‘ritin’ fer a few weeks, th’ loot has remained on this island in our guest cabin untouched from human hands, ‘cept fer mine fer an occasional pat.
Don’t be worried about that eye patch. Thee Eye Doctor has assured me that aft a few months, me be seein’ better than e’er. ‘N then me git t’ do it all over again with th’ other eye. Me can hardly wait. It’s quite a story ‘n me sure me be tellin’ ye more about it once it’s all over. Th’ good thing is that me has been excused from swabbin’ th’ deck around here ‘n cookin’ in th’ galley.
In th’ meantime, here’s a sneak peek at th’ booty. Me be aft to reveal just what’s in those bags ‘n how well me followed me list. Yo ho ho!

What I Learned Today:
- Eye sight is very precious.
- Good eye sight is so important for sewing/quilting.
- Eye patches look so much better on men in movies than women in real life.
Question: So what’s keeping you from working on your sewing/quilting projects?
I’ve enjoyed and appreciated every comment that you’ve left. Thank you so very much. Due to having a bit of difficulty with reading and writing for now, I’ve become quite far behind in responding. I’m hoping to one day get caught up on replying to them.
Thanks for stopping by and do come again.
