What's Up?

The weeks I spend in Key West is a very productive time for me. I bring lots of projects to work on and I get to renew my exercise regime. There's a very special gym here that I join each year called Stayfit, where I spin and Zumba. In addition to this, most mornings, Bailey and I take an early morning walk. There are basically 2 routes that we walk. One is down Duvall St with lots of window shopping to Mallory Square and the Gulf of Mexico. I lust after these Mary Frances handbags.

The other is along the beaches of the Atlantic Ocean.

The shrimp boats were plentiful. The photo is a little blurry because of the distance. Key West Pinks are available in restaurants and the supermarkets. Couldn't get any fresher.

This year my projects are focused on the Daytona AQS Show where I am teaching two classes and vending. I have decided to offer a batik kit in addition to the dupioni silk skinny kit for Curvalicious. I finished the sample quilt.

I love the bright colors and they play so nicely together.

The key to a beautiful Curvalicious quilt is either high contrast or if all the fabrics sing out. This quilt definitely has fabrics with a strong voice.


This kit includes pre fused circles and fabric for binding.

I made up a limited amount of kits. They will be in my booth at Daytona. If I have any left I will put them in my Etsy shop at the end of February or shoot me an email if you'd be interested in one.

Speaking of Etsy, my shop is still open with Curvalicious tools, patterns and silk kits. Click Here to shop.



  1. gO, Cheryl. When s Daytona? It should be a fun show for you.

  2. Options, options! Check out the ocean today or the coolest bags ever? I think Bailey votes bags.

  3. Bailey looks so relaxed as he models for you! I vote the ocean walk! The resistance you get from walking in the sand is a bonus when you exercise.

  4. Love your Key West colors in the runner!!


Thanks for stopping by. I'd love to hear from you.
