A Wonderful Spring Day!

I know that some people still have frigid temperatures and snow on the ground, but here in North Florida the sun has shown up.   We have had beautiful warm days and the sun has been shining.    I even got a little bit of a sunburn today.  
I took a day trip (2 hour drive) to visit my sisters. I made my sister a quilt for her 50th birthday, but it was a little late and I finished it a few weeks ago. See my finishes post here. I had yet to deliver it to her. I gave it to her today, and made her take a picture with it.

We had a great day.   We went to Downtown Alachua, FL and walked around looking in all the shops.   There is a quilt shop there.    I bought  2 half yard pieces of fabric and a wedge ruler.   We ate lunch at The Ivy House, a neat restaurant located in a restored old home, that is on the national historical register.   There are alot of cute gift shops, consignment stores, and antique stores on Main Street.    Then we went back to my sister's house and sat on the porch talking and laughing, and soaking in the sunshine.     It was a good day.

Chuffed? That must be an Aussie word. Excited right? Thanks I loved the colors and so did she. She said it reminded her of sunshine and blue skys.
