Just came back from a winter in Florida (retirement is soooo fun). I made a flurry of projects the last few weeks I was there, and here are a few of them. I made this white jacket for my sister - she loves it. It was the first project I made with multiple hoopings. It's from EmbLib e4890 Island Paradise designs.

What part of Florida were you in? I missed this winter in Florida, as I stayed in Chicago caring for my grandmother. I live 6 months Illinois and then the other half of the year I live in Jensen Beach on Hutchinson Island.

We are in Ft. Myers in the winter. We had beautiful weather and back home in Indiana it was SNOWING and SNOWING. I'm glad we missed it.

Oh you make me homesick. Less than 14 months and my husband and will be back home in Florida for good. Beautiful embellishment.

Well, I know you will enjoy it as much as we did. This is our second winter in Florida and it was more wonderful than the first. See you on the beach.. or maybe the golf coursel... if I can pull myself away from my machine (Ha)

It has been wonderful -- the pressures of "back home" just melt away. But the grandkids are up north and we miss them. But I did get a lot of projects done -- now we are home and I'm luck to sew 2x a week -- and I miss it!
