I thought I was finished with Florida too but I forgot to show you what I bought at the quilt shops there! Silly you!
I bought a little bit of all of these. I was thinking dragons for the purple and the cream and for the orange and purple owl eyes. I just really, really loved the aqua.
I found these patterns in Venice at a little shop there. They are by Black Cat Creations and are called Plaid cats in my garden. They are embroidered and colored with crayons. I would like to get the whole set of 12 but the shop only had these 2 and the BCC website sells their as a set. If you know of anyone or if you have the ones I don't have here and would be willing to sell or trade email me and let me know if we can work something out.
I also bought this pattern in Venice. I thought the houses were too cute.
I bought these two flamingo panels in Sarasota. Aren't those flamingos adorable? I love the Christmas one. DD2 has already laid claim to any future quilt I make with these. How many quilts does she need anyway??
I thought I would be oh so clever and piece the background for my owl blocks for the Spooktacular Swap. Well I miss calculated and now have all these wonderful squares that are not the right size at all. I think I will just keep them and make some 16 patches with them for something in the future. It did, however lead me to believe that this would be too much for what I want to do with my owls. So I cut out a creepy swirly green for the background instead. Hopefully that will end up working out better. Sheesh, lots of work for no results. I did manage to get some cleaning and laundry done today though and that's a good thing. We were running out of towels!
For those of you who might like to know...DH said he had bought me a birthday present so I had to close my eyes and hold out my hands and BANG! He placed a box into my hands. No, not a small box but one containing the third season of Psych (a TV show). DD1 and I cracked up. She collects those not me! **SIGH** I guess it's the thought that counts!
