I actually visited two new-to-me quilt shops in the past week. The first one was Quilting Folks, and it is in Rockledge, Florida. I visited my long-time friend, Annette, arriving Friday June 17th and getting back to New Mexico on Wednesday June 22nd. Annette lives two long blocks from the beach. Below is the pic I took during a glorious morning stroll:
Here’s a photo of Annette with her favorite fabric at Quilting Folks.
And here’s me with pretty teal Sphere fabric by Zen Chic (and yes I did come home with a yard cut of it!)
I actually visited two new-to-me quilt shops in the past week. The second quilt store we went to was Quilts and Lace, and it is in Melbourne, Florida. I picked up an interesting table runner and placemats pattern there called Mitered Magic.
The last full day I was in Florida Annette and I went to a little park where manatees are known to frequent. While we didn’t see a manatee that day, we did have a close sighting of a gator! Annette is definitely braver than me regarding proximity to alligators–I got close enough to snap a photo and then backed right up!
I had plenty of time of airplanes as well as some relaxing time at Annette’s, and I got two Sashiko squares finished during my trip. The pic below is definitely not great, but it shows the two squares next to a portion of Annette’s lovely swimming pool where we spent one relaxing afternoon floating around.
I just made three more Murmuration diamonds this past week before going to Florida, but I didn’t take a photo of them.
To-Do for the week of June 20th-26th:
- Write my June 2022 OMG Finish post.
- Make more Murmuration units (diamonds and possibly triangles).
- Get caught up with my temperature quilts flying geese.
