Sharing a Little Warmth

Florida was warm and wonderful by our standards, yet the natives insisted that it was unseasonably cool. We laughed at the weatherman talking about wind chills when the temp was in the mid 60s. Kansans know all about wind chills!

The "cool" weather obviously didn't deter this little boy - he looked like he was having a lot of fun.

We loved seeing blooming wildflowers along the boardwalk to the beach.

The gulls were out in abundance....

... and the pelicans rested just off shore.

The palm trees and grass were so lush and green compared to our still bare trees at home.

Not much knitting on this trip, but I recently completed this very QUICK project for DD2. This bracelet is knit with polyester embroidery floss and 5/0 beads (because that's what I had - you can use almost any beads). There are lots of variations on this bracelet in this leaflet.

It's nice to be home, but oh so busy! No doubt, DD#1 will see this and "need" a new bracelet, too. She just needs to tell me what color she wants! Lucky for me, it's a quick project!

Ah, "cool" in Florida looks balmy from Wisconsin. The photo of the little boy is adorable.
