Beautiful Juneau from our veranda on Nieuw Amsterdam (Holland America).
We stopped in Juneau, Skagway and Ketchikan and cruised through Glacier Bay. In each of the ports we found quilt shops for me and T-shirt shops for hubby. All of the stores had benches for patient husbands. We all have our collectibles hey?

Our Second port was Skagway and the "Rushin Tailor". I LOVED this store but didn't come home with any purchases as I just I couldn't decide and pennies are tight. What I did notice in this store was the beautiful wildflower fabrics. That's not something that I was aware of in Alaska, that their wildflowers are as famous as their wildlife and glaciers. Sadly, I regret not picking up some of these wildflower fabric, but I'm guessing I could order from them online if I was really that sad about it.
Here are the treasures that I came home with:
Some are gifts for friends and some will find their way into future projects. Fabric is the best kind of souvenir don't you think?!
It took us a couple of days to get our land legs back but what a great trip.
Until next time,
