stitching, quilting, fabric, projects
Thought I’d share a few pics of our recent holiday, a trip across the Florida Keys.
The weather was beautiful and the scenery amazing.
While we were in Key West we visited the house and gardens of the writer Ernest Hemingway.
The guided tour was interesting and not too long, it was so hot (90 degrees) and there’s no air conditioning. Ceiling fans had been replaced with chandeliers, back in the day.
Some of the plants in the gardens had been brought back from his travels.
They have about 50 cats on the property, many of them with the famed “lucky” six toes.
These tiles laid outside were collected by Pauline Hemingway, a little patchwork inspiration!
In the bookshop I spotted these cross stitch kits for sale in a few relevant designs. What a great idea!
We only had a week and it went so fast but we managed to squeeze in some swimming, snorkeling and a few cocktails 🙂
