Island Day~Mosaic Monday


Specifically, B*ailey Island Day




The quilted version


Although it lasted a few short hours, it was wonderful to get away. Beautiful sea. Beautiful sky.

The inscription under the lobsterman statue is this:

Thank you for looking at my mosaics!

Thanks to Mary at Little Red House for hosting this fun weekly event. Have you tried your hand at a mosaic yet? Mary gives all the information you need on her sidebar and it really is a lot of fun. Come join us!

  1. Oh Vee, that Mosaic is fantastic. I love what you did. Yes, I went to the Cape on Thursday and it was a perfect day. The evening was 73 degrees and the sky was amazing. Friday we had yucky weather, so I was glad that I got away when I did.

    Happy Mosaic Monday.

  2. Vee, thank you for posting that song. Thursday when I went to the Cape I was so weary. The Cape and the Lord is my oxygen when self comes creeping in to make me sad.

    I prayed at the beach for Grace. On Friday I got a call from my friend Susan who lives in London. We were close friends when we lived in Hong Kong and she knows me better than anyone. She said that she was nearby and visiting her sister and could we meet. She was the Grace I had prayed for. I spent a day of bliss on Saturday. He is so faithful.

    I love you Vee, and someday we will sit across a table having tea and I will share how much you lift me up.

  9. Beautiful island! I'm not sure where it is but I am thinking it's quite a ways up the Maine coast. Isn't summer glorious this year?

  10. The Maine coastline is like no other, Vee! It's so beautiful! WE have nothing but haze around our coast these days from all the humidity.

    Your mosaics are wonderful! Happy MM!

  14. Oh Vee, what a lovely mosaic. I really am hoping for a trip to New England this fall. My husband and I never had a honeymoon after we got married this past February, and I'm hoping we can make the trip in October.

    Beautiful photos. Thank you so much for sharing.

    Happy Monday to you,
    Susan

  16. I absolutely love the pictures of the water. I would love to live near a coast line. I will have to try to find out how to do that quilted mosaic. That is quite interesting. Great job.

  21. 'Morning, Vee - just got back to my computer this morning and I see a beautiful little getaway on the sea! Love those harbor scenes with the boats~~~~~

    I also just read about John's little mishap. I'm glad he's all stapled up and not hurting much. Tony seems to be that way, too. Maybe you need to staple his ar*se to the ground and keep him out of the trees and off the ladder! (fat chance - I know!)

  22. Vee,

    I might just have to leave my computer stuck on your page all day so I can view the gorgeousness of your grand photos of the ocean! I love each and every scene! Thank you for a little fresh breeze in my day.
