Dogwoods are blooming in Florida!
It really has been heaven to be here --- so very low key, so very fun!
We are offering 3 workshops while here at Camp Weed for our retreat with the Lady of the Lake Quilters ---
And they are eager and willing to try new things, diving in with the Easy Angle ruler and the Companion Angle ruler for yesterday’s My Blue Heaven workshop.
There are bins of scraps to dig from---discovered you didn’t bring enough variety to your liking? Grab up a few strips, trade a few strips, bring it all together and let’s sew!
Of course, our walk from lodgings to sewing center is just lovely.
There is so much more to discover in Florida, than just BEACHES and Disney.
I am just about 50 miles south of the Georgia border, inland…and this is our view instead:
Sandy dirt roads!
And yes, there is a whole lot of sewing going on!
But the best part? The Friendships! The Relationships!
The sisterhood of the cloth!
And oh, how we love it SILLY!
My new friends!
Don’t they look like trouble makers? HA!
We are colorful in all ways!

And we are classic beauties!
And we know how to have a great time!
It was definitely a My Blue Heaven Day!

|My Blue Heaven, Camp Weed Day 1, Live Oak FL 2015|
I wish I could say that I stayed up for the late night festivities last night ---but after a dinner walk I crawled into my jammies, did a bit of sewing in my room and then crawled into bed with a book.
Remember I had been up since 5am since the radio alarm in the next room went off unceremoniously – with no one in attendance in that empty room to turn it off.
The meds, the time change, the getting over this ear infection is still wearing on me a bit and I wanted to rest my voice and my whole self for TODAY’S festivities….it’s a Cathedral Stars Day!
As soon as I hit send on this I will be joining the gals for breakfast in the dining hall and day 2 will officially be under way!
Stay tuned for more fun!
