Heading South....

The first day of Spring was this weekend and it turned cooler again!  We decided to go ahead with our plans for a quick visit to Florida after I saw the doctor for an ear infection that developed over the weekend.  So we leave for a few days in St. Augustine to tour the Old City, the fort and lighthouse, and search for the Fountain of Youth!  I hope it helps my winkles.  And then to Orlando to see friends and family. 

I have about half of the watercolor stitched and the center area is pieced together too.  I have been looking for flowers to applique in the center.  This is one of the photos of poppies that I found and may use to sketch.  Wow, that is strange for me to say.  Two months ago I would not have even thought about developing a sketch for the applique.   I would have hunted for a pattern to copy.  I do believe the Art Quilt Workbook has made a dent in my attitude. 
Insight:  May I never grow too old to be willing to learn.

Till later....happy stitching!
