Southern Women's Conference Day 3

When I think of Florida. This is what I think of: oranges and lemons.

 We stopped at a gas station and I just had to take some pictures of the citrus. If I could I would take home a lemon tree.


This looked like a lot of fun. It is a motorized parachute. He looked like he was having so much fun flying above the ocean.

 Look at this view. We had to stop in Jacksonville to visit Cindy's brother who lives here. Cindy went to visit and I visited the beach.
  It is about 80 degees and amazingly beautiful. I enjoyed about 2 hours of sunshine.
 
 Looking out from my room while blogging and working on work related emails and things.


 This hotel may be new but down the street are the quaintest little beach resort stores that have been around for a while.
 This bat mobile car was outside a little restaurant on the street corner. I had to take a picture. I just love it!
 Look how cool it is.
 There is nothing that makes me feel more at home than palm trees, sand and the ocean. I could stay here forever.
 The walk to the beach from the hotel. It is about 50 feet.

The back of the hotel.
 There is nothing much better than the feel of sand between my toes, even if it is only for a very small moment in time. Loving the sunshine. Loving the fresh air. Wherever you live make sure to enjoy the fresh air and sunshine whenever you can. It rejuvenates the soul. Believe me I need a lot of that.
Back to work. Sew. Create. Enjoy

This is the million dollar quilt. Each block represents the story behind a letter from her son who served a 2 year mission. Don't you think that is such a great idea. I love it.

Farm Girl Vintage "Woolly Sheep"

Woolly Sheep is the last block on the  Farm Girl Vintage Friday Blog Hop Sew-Along.

It has been sew much fun sewing along  with Lori Holt, Fat Quarter Shop and all of you every Friday. 


I have a pile of super cute Farm Girl Blocks that I can't wait to start piecing together to make a fabulous quilt. 


I wanted my sheep to be white so I used low volume fabrics...I'm going to add some embroidery around the edge of the sheep to help the outline pop.

My Woolly Sheep and I  took a little field trip to Birdseye, Utah.  My sister-in-law and her husband  live on a ranch... It was the perfect spot for some  Farm Girl Vintage photos.

 Don't you love this old farm truck!

The setting was a beautiful, peaceful, tranquil day.

We were able to take these photos with the perfect backdrop for Woolly Sheep.

Dolly Book Tour

It is such an honor to be included with Elea Lutz ***DOLLY BOOK TOUR*** I have worked with Elea for many years and she always continues to inspire me with her fresh approach to color and design. She is super talented and tops it off with her sweetness that endears her to everyone. Elea's new book called Dolly has beautiful photography that keeps you looking through the pages over and over again.
After looking at all the lovely dolly themed projects I finally decided to make this cute Doll Dress Wall Hanging.

I used Little Dolly from Elea's recent fabric range. The colors and little mini designs are perfect for all the projects in her new book called DOLLY.

 One block just wasn't enough...ha ha  I started thinking about the cute grand baby daughter  that will be coming in December.
