Last week, we decided to finish our move south to Key West. We had planned to spend another 2 to 5 weeks in Central Florida while trying to wait out hurricane season. Change of plans! We will take our chances and hope for a calm season.Big Cypress NP visitor's center. I was more interested in the display of the Seminole's patchwork than in walking around outdoors. I tried not to smear the glass while looking for the tiny stitches in the patchwork. Beautiful handwork!

This dress was made in the 1920 - 1930s. Both boys and girls wore this outfit. The fabric looks very light and cool. Very comfortable for the hot humid summer days in Florida. Isn't the handwork amazing?

After several hours of heavy traffic, slow speeds, and a couple of stops - including getting the car's tire patched from a nail. It is a good thing Dan found the nail the night before while we were in the state park. The tire was leaking air and it would have been deflated by the time we started across the Overseas Highway. Finding pullovers big enough for our 38 ft rig plus a car are few along the way. We would have had some major damage if the tire had gone flat while we were towing it. We made it safely to Sigsbee NAS without any more incidents if we don't count some of the crazy drivers. ;)
On The Cutting Board
I finished two more quilts. Binding done. I need to pre-wash them before listing them. The photos are a little hazy due to heat and humidity fogging up my lens.
