I put together a ZigZag center for a baby quilt before we left. The fabric was a pile of similar left-overs I grabbed before leaving home and some muslin.
We have moved on to Dunedin, the spring training home of the Toronto Blue Jays, and the nearest town to beautiful Honeymoon beach. The sand is white white and fine grained. And there is a section set aside as a "Pet Beach". No cats in evidence.
I have put the borders on the ZigZag quilt, after a visit to The Rainbow's End [quilt shop] for the bright border. I used up all the remaining scraps for the backing. However, actually QUILTING the top will wait until I get home. The "harp" of the Feather Weight machine is too small for quilting.
And here is a better shot of what we can see from the balcony: palm trees, Gulf water, islands, a white egret. Occasionally private fishing boats go by and kayaks. No manatees so far.
For lunch today we drove 20 minutes north to Tarpon Springs for a Greek lunch and a look at the sponge boats in their harbor. The tan sponges are hanging on rope lines on the boat [to dry?].
We also spent about ten minutes inside the Greek Orthodox cathedral of St. Nicolas. Big Greek community here!
Charlie's friend is arriving today for four ball games in four days with Charlie. I'm going to just one, and will continue my sewing projects while the men are out in the bright sun for three hours at a time.
Interesting restaurant food for dinners
