When I think of central Florida, I think of Disney World and talking mice. Not this time. No, instead I find myself thinking and watching out for alligators and snakes.
We are staying in a campground in Clermont, FL. About 20 minutes away from Disney World. So far, I have not seen a single alligator in the campground's lake. Although, we did hear a story about a woman finding one near her rig's doorstep one day. Imagine stepping on that by mistake in the dark!

I usually like to spend my evenings sewing. Now I am trying to get my sewing done in the afternoons. I thought this would work out quite well for me. For once I can sew without Max in my lap complaining about fabric and thread tickling him. Ha! He caught on real fast and started showing up in my chair by the third day. There's no fooling him.
Amazing! I actually finished three Uncle Sams in time for the 4th of July this time.

I'm making progress on my Hawaiian turtle block. Batik is great for applique because it is so forgiving. When I put a crease in and I can iron it right back out when I make a mistake. So I was quite surprised that I find it is very hard to hand quilt through two layers of batik fabric plus muslin and batting. I hope to finish it before we leave this area which is about 6+ weeks from now.
Time for some sewing....shhh, Max is in the back....if I am real quiet I might get in an hour before he realizes that he is missing out.....
