  1. I think there is a shop in Bar Harbor called Fabrications. My niece lived that way for a while. My parents live north of Bangor.
    I hope you go to Mount Desert Island. It is beautiful and rugged there.
    Go to Sand(y) beach for me! i was one a Summer programme one year and they took us there. It happened to be my birthday. The water was still Very Cold!
    We went there one time in the winter with my brother during a snowstorm. Amazing how the waves were crashing in! It was a lightbulb moment for me -I knew what a storm on a beach looked like. I knew what a snowstorm on land looked like, but I had never put together what a snowstorm on a beach looked like! WOW!

      Hi Sandy,
      Wow – that picture of the beach in a snowstorm just gave me a chill. I can so picture it – the beauty, the power of the waves, the peaceful snow floating down. Yes – I remember the name Fabrications from my internet searches! Thank you – I appreciate it. The island sounds wonderful as does Sand Beach. I hope to see as much as possible with a little bit of quilt shops around the edges. ~smile~ Roseanne

    Columbo! lol. That brings back memories. There was a quilt and scrapbooking shop in what was a bank building in Bar Harbor that had the friendliest people (and great prices). Sorry – it was years ago that I went, and I don’t recall the name, but it was on a main street. I hope you come across it! Have fun!

  3. Oh, Dominic peas were not one of my daughters favorites either. Maybe it’s the texture. Glad you like the berries though! Yum! 😊

  4. Roseanne, I remember watching Colombo back in the day! We don’t have cable or satellite tv so our venue for watching is not quite as varied. Looks like you have a fun adventure planned. Woohoo! I hope you find many nice quilt shops to visit. Of course you could just stop in to look. Nobody says you have to buy anything. Right! 😊

    • Roseanne says:

      Right – no one says you ‘have’ to buy something. I certainly do not ‘need’ anything but there will be many tempting things, I’m sure. Plus Sue’s parents will be with and they will force us to buy stuff (not really). ~smile~ Roseanne

    Waving at Dominic~~~ Love that boy, soooo adorable! Great likes love the hallmark channels too! Have a great day!

    • Roseanne says:

      Good morning,
      Oh, and Dominic would love to wave back at you! At six months today, that is starting to be his new thing. He kind of hits himself in the head or eye a bit . . . but he would definitely wave back. ~smile~ Roseanne

    Your trip sounds great! Visited Portland for the first time a few years ago as a high school girl trip. Don’t ask we’ve haven’t been in high school for over 40 years. We mostly ate and chatted, so I can’t really tell you about quilt shops. But can hardly wait to hear about your trip when you return.

    • Roseanne says:

      Hi Jan!
      It’s still a high school trip, even if you’ve been out of school a year or two! 😉 It’s the people that make the trip. I hope to find a few gems and I’ll be happy to share all the quilty news! ~smile~ Roseanne

    oooh your Dominic is adorable. My sweet granddaughter loves her fruit and vegetables too. I just discovered that I have the Hallmark Mystery Channel and now watching Murder She Wrote. Thanks for the heads up, I love the old tv series. Hey, look I can post comments now!

    • Roseanne says:

      Hi Rose!
      Yay for the Hallmark Mystery Channel! Lots of good shows on there. I’m so glad the comment mystery disappeared. I didn’t see anything in the settings. Isn’t it fun to see what your granddaughter likes to eat?! So wonderful to see their personalities shine through. ~smile~ Roseanne

    Your vacation reads like a fun one. I’m on the west coast, so I can’t help you about shops. Dominic is so precious!

    • Roseanne says:

      Good Morning! Thanks so much – we always have fun traveling with Sue’s parents. Lots of laughs, coffee, and cookies (her step-dad never met a cookie he didn’t like!). ~smile~ Roseanne

  9. lapaylor says:

    funny, that is the same way I eat blueberries!! lol
    I didn’t know you were watching celebrity BB. Me too, it made me laugh every time! I love the new survivor too! And Amazing race, bachelor winter games, project runway. Soon American Idol again! I think it’s just fun.

  10. chrisknits says:

    That last love is the best of all!!

  11. I’ll have to check and see if we get the Hallmark Mystery channel – sounds like we would enjoy it! Mike has found 2 channels here that show Perry Mason episodes, so we watch that a lot! Your vacation plans sound wonderful – must be a cruise?! Cute, cute Dominic!

    • Roseanne says:

      Hi Diann,
      Oh, I love old Perry Mason shows too. It cracks me up at the theatrics and it is a great way to see fashion trends from the 60s. It is a cruise up the eastern coast – I’m hoping it won’t be too cool in June. D is visiting us Saturday morning so I hope to get some new pics for next week. ~smile~ Roseanne

  12. Lovely vacation plans…don’t you love it when the decisions are all made and everything’s booked.
    We are also Columbo fans; I think we’ve watched them through twice now.
    There is something comforting in watching these old shows.
    I recommend Blueberries for Sal too, a classic. And according to the research, the aunties should be ploughing down the blueberries too!
    That boy is so sweet-puts a smile on my face every time I see him.

  13. How much time and ability to roam will you have while in Maine? Cotton Weeds is a cute little shop in Freeport (about 20 mins. from Portland). I visited two others while in Maine, both within driving distance from Bar Harbor, but maybe more driving than you have time for? Email me if you want more info. Of course, if Dominic loves blueberries, you might want to buy the book “Blueberries for Sal” while you’re in Maine. 🙂

    • Roseanne says:

      Hi Wendy,
      Believe it or not, he already has that book because Sue was called Sal when she was little (and still now by her sister). It’s kind of a family tradition/joke. I will check out Cotton Weeds and see if that is something we can get to. We’d have to Uber there but that might be doable! ~smile~ Roseanne
