I had hoped to have some quilty things to show you today, but even though I sewed for awhile today, I wasn't too thrilled with what I did. So, no sewing for today...
Instead, I'll show you a couple a pictures from Egypt. We've all heard of the pyramids and the Sphinx, but at the foot of the largest pyramid is a small museum devoted to a boat! Out there in the desert! Our guide, Sam (an Egyptologist) explained that there are differing explanations for them, but that they are considered death boats that carried that pharaoh's spirit from the time of death until he was entombed. Whatever they were for, it's a really interesting thing to see. Also, it's something I'd never heard of.
