The end of March we went to Florida. My husband and son had business there and we wives got to go along. I just love road trips!
We stopped in Savannah on our way to Orlando. Savannah is definitely one of my favorite places. My hubby and I have been there before and find it to be just beautiful! I love the architecture, the stately trees with spanish moss hanging from their boughs, the beautiful flowers and friendly people.

When we got to our hotel in Orlando, Florida we found out that there was a home and garden show in the convention center adjoining the hotel. My DIL Zlaty and I decided to see the show. We saw many interesting and beautiful things.
Beautiful orchids!

Wonderful metal sunflowers!
I love the rabbit and the flowers!
And would you believe it, someone was refinishing a sewing machine!
There was so much more there to see.
We had a busy day. After the show, we were very tired from walking and decided to try out the hotel's spa. This is something I have never done before. So I proceeded slowly by just using their relaxation room. It was heavenly!
There were soft lights, relaxing music, water, fruit, pillows, blankets and whatever else you might need. I took my book along and read for a little while, but became so relaxed, I just felt like closing my eyes and going to sleep. If you know me at all, you know that I can't sleep during the day, so this definitely was nice.
I told my hubby about it and he suggested I set up a place at home where I can just go and relax. What a guy! I now have a room designated for relaxing. Ahhh!

After the spa, we headed to Universal Studios. What a phenomenal place! We didn't have much time there, so I just shot as many photos as I could while we walked around.
This was my favorite street!

Such fun!
Of course I did get to visit a couple of quilt shops.
This one was called Fireside Quilts. It was a cute shop in a house which I loved. The ladies were so friendly and they had many fabrics to choose from.

I hope you enjoyed my trip to Florida.

Happy Sewing,


Hello Everyone!
Yes, I am still around. I have so many things that I need to post and just not enough time!
First I will share about a retreat I had with friends back in March!
A number of friends and I rented a house for a sewing retreat. It was a great weekend! I highly recommend doing this with your friends if you ever get a chance.
We take projects that we would like to work on and just gather around a table and sew, talk and of course eat! Sometimes we even visit quilt shops! It doesn't get much better than that.

Mary is having fun working on her project.

Melissa looks like she would like me to put my camera away! :-)

Leisa is hard at work on her wool quilt.

Kathy was putting the pedal to the medal!

Here are some of the projects from retreat:

See, we actually did get some sewing done!

Zlaty from Zlaty Sews awarded me this Beautiful Blogger award. Thank you so much for thinking of me. Stop by Zlaty's blog and see the many beautiful things that she makes!
If you would like to pass this award on to someone, please feel free to do so.

Happy Sewing,
