Welcome to Madeira Beach Florida

Art Fest ATCs

Cyber Fyber Postcard ( vote for me)

We made it to sunny Florida! We have a cute little yellow cottage and a very private pool and we are across the road from the Gulf of Mexico. A short distance away is John's Pass, a boutique and restaurant area. It was worth getting lost in St. Petersberg for the afternoon. The stop in Lake City at The Fabric Art Shop was well worth it. I found books, threads, and painting tools to buy. It was hard to stop gathering stuff at the cash register. Since then I have visited JoAnn's fabrics and The Rainbow's End Quilt Store in Duneden. I found some wool roving at R's End for embellishing. They have hundreds of bolts of fabric, that it makes you dizzy! I only got two fat quarters near the cash register that caught my eye. We went over to a nearby Cafe and met Bee who sells old estate jewellery. I bought some little trinkets that had just come in and would be great to add as embellishment.

Another surprise is my winning Artfest for a second time on Cloth Paper Studio. My ATCs sent to Susan Lenz for the Cyber Fyber ATC trade were chosen by Suzy. Thank you Suzy! This is a great group to join and the artists are very friendly and supportive of each other's art. My post card and ATC traded to Susan Lenz for Cyber Fyber is now on the site and could use your vote.
