TUSAL Time - Feb 2016

TUSAL  is a fun SAL (stitch a-long) that's hosted by Sharon over at It's Daffy Cat and I have decided to try keeping all of my orts for year in one jar. Each month I will smush them down and keep going. Here is my picture for February.
Well the only way to make orts for my jar is to make some wonderful little xxs.

And the WINNER IS...

The winner of my Little House Needleworks Calendar Girl Gift Away is:

Now that the important business is over I can share that this past weekend my husband and I went on our first cruise.  We boarded the Enchantment of the Seas ship at Port Canaveral and set sail to the island of Nassau in the Bahamas. On the way, there was lots and lots of food and drinks.

When we arrived Saturday morning we toured the island.
We finished up our island tour with a visit to the John Watling's distillery where we sampled their wares, Yummm! Rum!
After returning to the ship we spent the evening enjoying music and dancing.
The next morning we arrived at a private island called Coco Cay, 
This island was beautiful, I wanted to go swimming but with the weather only 70 degrees the water was still a little too chilly for me so I only got my feet wet. I got to sit on the beach in the sun and get sand between my toes instead of trudging through snow. 

Our last night on board the ship was spent watching the staff and crew in a farewell show, it was great.
While we were in Orlando we visited Universal Studio's Bubba Gump Shrimp and  Diagon Alley the new attraction from Harry Potter.
 We also got to visit Gatorland and I actually tasted 'gator.

 Taste like chicken.
 Sadly it was time to go to the airport and return home to the cold, and snow. I think this was one the best weekends I've ever had. Needless to say no xxs were made this trip.  Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed my trip as much as I did.
