Florida Quilt Network - Newsletter #76


June 30, 2004


Quilting Friends,


Again, I’m walking out the door for another family trip…this time to Iceland.  My husband’s mom was born and raised there.  Its time our kids discovered the beauty and uniqueness of their grandmother’s homeland.  My 8 year old daughter just came in the room to tell me she won’t need to pack pajamas because she’ll only be sleeping ½ hour each night!  I guess she got confused when I told her there would only be ½ hour of darkness each night.
