Buttonhole applique

Our Time Here is Winding Down

It’s hard to believe, but we only have a few more days left to enjoy the Florida sunshine.  We’ll be starting the return trip to New York on Friday, but will ease back into “our real world” gradually.

We leave Homossasa, FL on Friday morning and drive to Savannah, GA for a 2 day, 3 night stay.  We stopped in Savannah on the way from Syracuse, NY to Old Cypress, FL and enjoyed a guided tram tour of Savannah’s 21 historic squares.  This coming weekend we plan on taking a self guided walking tour to visit some of these sites “up close and personal”.

Monday we will be heading to Pittsboro NC for a 2-day visit with our son and his family.  The grandkids are planning on serving us a dinner combell-pull-0011plete with the pomp and circumstance of fine restaurant dinning.  Can’t wait!

Then back to Syracuse, where we are looking forward to enjoying what remains of winter.  Our hope is that any remaining snow storms will wait until we have the RV safely parked in our driveway.

On the trip back to snow country, I should have plenty of time to finish the Fall/Winter Reversible Bell Pull from The Stash Store. (Jan 28 post)  The Winter side is about 75% complete.  I appliquéd the wool pieces with the buttonhole stitch using the technique described in the directions that came with the kit:

Buttonhole stitch technique

The needle is inserted at the outside of the appliqué piece and comes up at a point parallel and even to the previous stitch.  The result:  the stitch length is easier to control and is uniform.

Lucia, Quilting on the Road!
