March 19 is National Quilting Day. I won't be able to quilt today. I am volunteering to be a Docent for a Key West House Tour. I did the tour yesterday (no photos allowed - darn!). My favorites were their gardens. So inviting. So relaxing. Many of the houses had a lot of character with a wide range of colors giving me a feeling of being in the tropics. And of course, it gave me lots of ideas for more quilts. hmmmm, just what I need - more ideas.
I did prep-work on 4 Dresden Plates yesterday. The unfinished Dresdens were donated to Project Linus. I don't have any matching material for borders. I might have to go shopping if there is nothing in my stash. In the meantime, I will start hand sewing the Dresdens to the background. A good project to do while we are traveling to our next location.
2 years ago on 19 March, I retired from my job to full-time with my husband in our motorhome. I can't believe it has been 2 years! On 22 March, we left Albuquerque and started our adventures on the road. Wow! Our second anniversary of freedom and full-timing. And yes, I would do it all over again.
