Christmas Eve Journey

A year ago, I was on the National Georgraphic Explorer voyaging in Antarctica. On Christmas Eve, we traveled down an icy bay and sent out two zodiacs to pick up two volunteers and transport them to Port Lockroy for Christmas dinner. The volunteers had been repairing huts used by scientists studying in Antarctica.

My art quilt, Journey, captures the zodiacs journeying through an icy channel to pick up the volunteers. It was an amazing way to spend a Christmas and last night I hung Journey in our dining room to remind us of how fortunate we were to have the experience.

Happy Holidays to All

and Wishes for a Peaceful New Year.


  1. It's a beautiful tribute to the work those explorers do, Judy.

    Blessings for Christmas...



  2. Judy,
    That is a beautiful piece. Really captures how small human beings are in comparison to the area. My sister went on the same trip and loved it. Thanks for sharing it!
