Trip To Florida
We recently took a trip to Florida.The drive down is always a long one. I make sure I take my stitching along! I worked on my Ida Mae Crow. She is coming along nicely :)
We saw some pretty cloud formations in the sky, I made sure I took some nice pictures on the way.
It was nice to visit good friends and our old hometown again.
We had a nice time in Saint Augustine and I was able to shop in all the wonderful places that I have missed so very much! We also went to Ripley's believe it or not..some interesting things in there to see.. I visited with some of my dear friends, and it was good to catch up with them again. I sure wish I could have seen everyone on my list, but we only visited for a short while. I hope to see some more friends next trip we take. Our daughter had a nice time with her friend she hasn't seen in a while.
I went to a quilt shop that I absolutely love called the Olde Green Cupboard My friend Lynn works there. I took plenty of pictures in the shop, as you can see! It was so beautifully decorated for the Fall. Sure wish my home looked as pretty as this shop. I picked up a couple of wonderful Quaker style cross stitch charts there. Can't wait to start on them.
Made sure to stop in all the local craft stores that I don't have back home in NC.
Found the cutest little wire baskets.
I had a bit of a setback when I hurt my knee. I wasn't quite sure what was wrong, but I was in a lot of pain! I had trouble walking and decided it would be best to go to the doctor. My knee was swollen. I was told it was tendonitis, and was given meds to take which brought the swelling down and now I feel much better. So glad it was nothing major.
Looking forward to my weekend ahead, hope to get some sewing and stitching time in.
Monday comes all too fast.
