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.

I love all the hand embroidery on this quilt. It will be a classic.

This was a block exchange quilt. She did a great job of her colors and arranging of blocks. I think this quilt turned out great.

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.

I cute would it be to do 4 Doll Dresses...

and so I kept sewing and sewing...

Spelling Bee Sew Along

I'm so excited to be part of the Spelling Bee Book Sew Along byLori HoltofBee in my Bonnet for Fat Quarter Shop. There is so much to LOVE about this fun book that includes all upper and lower case letters. It also features complete instructions for 100 letters, numbers, punctuation and picture blocks in 6" and 12" block size, plus 18 quilt projects!

 I used "Yes Please" fabric line by  My Mind's Eye for Riley Blake Designs. The color palette is black and off white with a touch  of rose gold. The simplicity of the colors lends itself to sophistication.

I have a fun project planned with the blocks I will be making.  Right now I have my binding by Vintage Door wrapped around my Binding Baby which is made by Shari for Doohikey Designs.

You can see how adorable my Binding Baby is and how she keeps my binding from unraveling while waiting to be used. 

My letter today is "lowercase o". It is super quick and easy. I have made several blocks as I am preparing to ma…
