There's no place like home!!!
The trip was good and I have LOTS of shots/footage to share, but it will take some wading through first. Highlights? How about some manatees? Dolphins? A precious Princess? Even a pod of migrating whales!!! For a nature lover, it just doesn't get much better than the east coast of Florida. Abby and I set the goal of seeing a roseate spoonbill in its natural habitat before we left OUR natural habitat- and we saw 4 of them!
On the craft side of life, have any of you ever heard of Alabama (Natalie) Chanin? A friend of mine has recently aquainted me with her work and I am an instant fan. Hand stitching. Everything she does is hand stitched. Kind of slow "sewing", if you will. Well I'll let you in on a little secret if you will promise to keep your fingers crossed for me..........I applied for a scholarship to join her (and a few other folks) one weekend in May for a personal workshop! Oh I hope I get it!
So what are you talented folks making for Valentine's Day? I need some serious inspiration! I sure have missed you and can't wait to hear from you!
