Sunny Day

As you know I live in the sunshine state, but this past summer you couldn't tell, it rained so much. But the weather has cooled off and the humidity has gone and it has been beautiful here in north Florida. I have been working on some projects some I can't show as they are presents. But I did finish a big one a blanket and I really liked the colors in it, also today me am and my grandson went and enjoy the nice weather here and had a good time at the park. I am flying out to Az for 10 days hoping to hit all my favorite spots the Attic being one of them, so till then keep those fingers moving and enjoy the pictures.
