I know it's a tough job, but somebody's gotta do it! Take a peek at my home away from home for the next week:
I know - I know - tough job, right? I'm SO excited to be joining a fun group of quilters in Destin, Florida at the Emerald Coast Quilt Retreat and Show for 3 days of teaching and lectures. I can't wait to see the quilts that are made from my Strip-Smart Quilts book:
For those of you familiar with the book - we'll be making one of my favorites "Family Vacation"
and another favorite - "Cupcicles"
Perfect quilts to get you into the summer frame of mind, don't ya think? Speaking of which - - I might just have to sneak out of class for a few minutes to run over here:
and wiggle my toes in the sand and the water. It's been a looooong 50 years since I've visited Destin, and I can't wait to wake up to this:
and close the evenings with this:
Sigh. Breath taking isn't it? I'll just have to ignore the fact that even though its the first time in 50 years that I've ventured back to this lovely place - the weather decided to take a turn towards the cold side. Highs in the 50's - lows in the upper 20's while I'm there. While this is warm to lot's of y'all, its dang cold for this Louisiana gal!!! Oh well - - if Mother Nature thinks she will get the best of me - and I won't venture my toes into the water - she has another thing coming!!!!
I'll make sure I take lots of pics so that I can share with you when I get back.
With a warm heart (and cold toes!!!),
