And we're spending it on the beach where I snapped this photo of the
Just another day before we head home and I'm starting to think about
my Stars and Pinwheels waiting on my design wall.
Deb and I had a great visit today and since Keith spent most of the
day working I was glad to have company.
Drinks and snacks in the lobby bar tonight and then dinner on our
balcony watching the sunset.
She's going to drive down to sit by the pool and have lunch with me.
She wasn't thrilled with the idea of wearing a bathing suit in public
but heck no one knows us here!
I'll even be brave and share a photo of me by the pool today!
I finished up a Sherlock Holmes story -A Study in Scarlet -yesterday
and today have been reading a biography of Victoria and Albert.

You know I’m a reader, right? I try to keep my Shelfari bookshelf up to date with new books I’m reading – most of which are on the Kindle these days but I also have a large (huge?) personal library of 500 to 600 books on quilting with some embroidery, beading, knitting, and crochet titles tossed in there too.
So when I started contemplating how I’m going to bind the irregular edges of my string tumbler and the novelty tumbler quilts I pulled these two books to look for information on binding irregular edges.
And I’m still debating whether my Stars and Pinwheels quilt will get a border — it really big already but I might as well read up on borders just in case. I just remembered I have another border book somewhere — will have to look for that one too.
After reading the book I bought in Nebraska about their Quilt Documentation Project I pulled out these 3 to look through them again — I love looking at these old quilts and reading about the women who made them. It’s a great source of inspiration and look at the cover on the Georgia book — it’s a string quilt, I’d forgotten about that one!
I’ve lived in Virginia, Georgia, and Minnesota so I’m especially interested in quilts from those states but I don’t have a book on Florida quilts. We lived there for 13+ years AND I started quilting when we lived in Florida so I’ll have to look to see if they have a documentation project book.
The sky’s been dark and stormy looking but with the sun peaking
through I think the rain may pass us by for now.
Yesterday’s book was Testimony by Anita Shreve. Today I started
reading the complete collection of Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan
Doyle – got to love the Kindle for that!
Dinner with family later but for now, a drink, some sun, and my book!
What’s on your computer desktop? I always use one of my photos and they change fairly frequently. Until recently I had one from our Ireland trip but this is the current one. I know there’s snow on the ground but it’s the view from my front porch and I love the colors in this photo taken early one morning.
