Posting this picture was delayed because we have been in Florida for 12 days, relaxing, swimming, reading and escaping from the snowy landscape that has been the view out our windows for far too long. This was the first time I have ever been on the East Coast of Florida, and I loved it. We visited two botanical gardens and enjoyed walking among plants and trees not seen in the Northeast.
|My biologist husband says this is the fruit of the tree from which it is hanging. Some fruit, eh? (Of course I neglected to record the name of the tree!)|
|My friend Marge and I went to water aerobics every morning. Fun!|
|We saw the launch of the space shuttle Discovery from the beach!|
And, of course, I visited some quilt shops in the area. My favorite was the Dragon Fly Quilt Shop in Vero Beach where I bought some Australian fabrics and some Kaffe Fassett fat quarters. No vacation is complete without fabric souvenirs!
So now we are home again. The sewing machine is plugged in and ready, the fabric has been washed, the rotary cutter has a fresh blade, and I am going to do some serious stash busting.
