Value Proposition and a short trip to Galveston!

I have completed another one of my value proposition blocks!  This is a QAL hosted by Karen at
I really enjoy stitching these blocks.  They are 1" paper pieces which is quiet large for me to work with.  So, that being said, they go together fairly quickly.
My son had to go to Galveston for an interview!  The two youngest kids are on holiday from college and we decided to accompany him.  It is a five hour trip from where we live.  We do quiet enjoy a road trip.  Also, we are land locked and an opportunity to see the ocean was very appealing.  This is the view out of our hotel window.
 A slightly different angle.
One of my favorite things to do is shell hunting.  Oh, I can spend hours and hours looking for shells.  There were not too many varieties of shells to choose from but we had fun nevertheless.  We had one full day in Galveston and made the most of our time.  Boy, it was hot and humid though.  We took a lovely bicycle ride along the seawall on Monday evening on a bicycle built for four.  It looked a bit like a vintage car with two persons up front and two in the back.  We pedaled for an hour.  Just fabulous.


  1. I love your block! Green is one of my favourite colours (judging by the amount of it in my stash) so your quilt really speaks to me! Keep up the great work!

  2. Sounds like a great trip - beautiful view from your hotel! I can just hear the waves now. The ocean (waves, smell, shells, etc) is one of the things I miss most from when I lived in Miami...
