Two weeks ago I was starting a new Ladies of the Sea (Sue Garman's pattern) block and realized The Mayflower was in the unfinished pile. Well, with Thanksgiving right around the corner that gave me motive to get her completed. What a ride she must have been, only 63 feet long and 11 feet wide with 102 passengers and the crew on board. They were at sea for two months, September and October in 1620.I am on call at the hospital for part of the upcoming weekend so I will not be able to have anything in the oven Wednesday evening. Pumpkin pie and pumpkin bars are on my agenda for today but for now I am going to sneak in an hour or so of sewing. Under my needle is The Turk, a Mediterranean coastal fishing vessel from the mid 18th century.
I now have half of my ladies completed.
Happy Thanksgiving All, I pray for calm weather and smooth "sailing" if you are on the road to be with family and friends.
