A long weekend in Florida and a baby quilt update

Jim and I made a short trip to Florida to visit with my parents.  We spent many happy hours in their pool and enjoying the view provided by the lovely flowers and plants that surround it.  My mother has a very green thumb especially for orchids.

The center of the baby quilt for Abbott is finished as is one side.  I'm now working my way around the other three with the half hoop.

Mom and Dad took us to the Columbia Restaurant at the St. Petersburg Pier.   There are several branches of this wonderful old Spanish restaurant around Florida.  The original is in Ybor City.  We had Cuban sandwiches and soup--delicious!

We returned to find Greensboro overcast and much cooler.  Quilted Librarian is now off to finish the baby quilt.

Glad you had a good visit with your folks! You were wearing a sweater in Florida?? Love the pelican!

I didn't need it outside for sure, Jean, but the restaurant was a little cool.
All the best,
