I am so excited to share that I have been making vacation plans for later this year. One trip involves doing another boat charter to the Caribbean. But this time, we have invited our good friends, Larry and Lori, to come along for the fun to the BVI!
You might remember my creative pal, Lori, from the past “Lori & Carla Creative Adventure Week” visits I have done. Lori was also behind my attending ArtFiberFest in past years. She also has a wonderful blog named, “Art & Play.” Lori is also the owner and co-designer for this fun shoe quilt. It was also her very first quilt, I think:
and here is a close-up for why this is called the “Hairy Leg Quilt:”
Funny, isn’t it? I have had lots of requests for our quilt pattern over the years, too.
Lori and I have been friends for about 2 decades now. She is married to Larry, who is a very kind man, funny sense of humor, and just good, all-around man. Together, they have 2 daughters, Chloe is away to art design school, and Cara (which is really Carla, minus the “l”) who has a vivacious spirit.
So when Joe and I were talking about inviting another couple along for the fun, Lori and Larry immediately came to mind. We are bound to come home with lots of stories and hopefully, no one needs the services of the local witch doctor/taxi driver, like I did on our last trip when I stepped on a nasty sea urchin.
Joe and I are looking forward to sharing our favorite places with Larry and Lori. The bubbling pool on Jost Van Dyke near Foxy’s Taboo, snorkeling around the Indians, sea glass and shell hunting on Sandy Cay, and that one deserted white sand beach near Virgin Gorda Sound, and more!
Sound like a fun trip?? Cheers, Carla
