Clearwater, Florida

I finally get round to sew my summer top. New Look pattern 6976; it requires a lot of bias tape. Lucky I have various sizes of bias tape maker from Clover, so I made my own and didn’t have to spend much on sewing notions.
I finished the sewing just in time for our getaway last week to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We headed north and drove through a storm. It was so scary. We could hardly see where we were going. There were thunders and lightning and they were so close to our car. The lightning bolts were striking down either side of the highway, with the light and the crack happened at the same time.
Once we passed the storm it was Florida weather again; hot and sunny with blue sky and white clouds. Our destination: Clearwater on the west coast of Florida, just west of Tampa.
One of the reasons we chose Clearwater was because it is pet friendly. This is the doggie beach at Fort De Soto County Park.
You could tell Poppy loved it, right? She was ready to go for her second swim before we finished setting up camp!
I purchased a few craft things on my travel, going to try them out now.

Thank you for visiting. Have a great weekend.
