A few weeks ago, I headed down to Florida to teach a few workshops and do a few trunk shows. Upon arriving at The Cotton Patch, I was greeted by the cutest bassets ever! You know it’s a good sign when dogs are involved.
The workshops were loads of fun! Check out those Hattie’s blocks!
Some major fussy cutting happened!
While I was in Florida, I had to check out the local hotspots. We went to eat at The Columbia. I had my first Cuban and the best guava pastry ever! It’s a good thing that I don’t live too close to that place.
I was pretty excited to find out that it was strawberry season! So we headed to a produce stand. I’ve long had an obsession with hand painted signs. Hand painted signs advertising my favorite food are a double win.
And live sign painting!
My next workshop was with the Orlando MQG. What a great group!! We talked about precision piecing tips and had a fun day! (And they said I couldn’t fit twenty people into a selfie.)
Then it was time for more strawberry eating. There was whip cream on tap.
Next up was manatee watching. The blob on the right is a baby manatee!
Obviously we had to pose with the giant painted manatee and buy a manaTEA steeper.
There’s nothing better than a trip to Florida in the Winter!
