Pictures of Jamaica

The house at Good Hope Plantation.  The  house was built in the late 1700's as a wedding gift to the plantation owner's son and daughter-in-law.  The daughter-in-law died of yellow fever shortly after she arrived from England and was buried inside the house.

The owner of the plantation thought it was unlucky to count money in the house so he had this building built to count his money in.

The ruins of a 300 bed hospital for slaves is now a bird aviary.

They used to cook sugar cane in these big iron pots

Crumb Quilt Round Up

I just saw the most wonderful crumb quilt over at Jo's Country Junction.  Jo asked that others link up a picture of their crumb quilts so in the spirit of sharing, here are mine.  Mine are very basic compared to Jo's.  I think I am going to have to try making one her way.

I Won!

I received good news in my inbox this morning!

I was a Bonus Prize Winner in the February FabShopHop and won a $100 gift certificate from Bug Fabric.

I am so exited about this.  I have been making fabric postcards for swaps lately and Bug Fabric has a great selection  of fabric available to use for backgrounds, the illusion of texture etc, and almost all the fabric is available as FQs.

This is not the first time I have won a prize in the FabShopHop.  I have won a few $10 gift certificates and also a first prize fabric bundle.

Can't wait to pick out the fabric!
