Mae just got back with me from our trip to Panama City, FL, for the week! We drove from NC to FL (A 14 hour trip this time including traffic delays and stopping for rests). My mom-in-law doesn't have internet anymore, so here are pictures for the whole week! (click on any of the photos to see others in Mae's Flickr album for this trip).

The day before I left, I was in Downtown Raleigh for lunch with coworkers, so I grabbed a couple shots:

The city:

The chocolate factory:

The BBQ restaurant:

It rained most of the drive down to Florida:

And we had to twiddle our thumbs a lot while we were stuck in traffic, but I got some knitting done! And Mae helped Wink

On our first day in Florida, we checked out a local coffee shop called "Caffiend's". It was super tiny. The man that owns and runs it recently started roasting the coffee himself:

We walked down to the docks after the rain let up (it rained the whole week pretty much).

There is a "restaurant" run from one of the boats there:

And a dock cat:

We went to historical downtown PC to get lunch after that. Most of the shops were closed because it was Sunday though Sad

The old theater on the corner is the Martin Theater. I performed there as a child doing plays. My husband performed piano recitals there, too.

On Monday, we went to Destin, FL, for some last minute shopping at the outlets and at Destin Commons.  They have a huge Christmas tree and a kiddy train during the holidays:

Mae jumped on the train while the engineer wasn't looking:

And palm trees for the rest of the year:

We got some snacks at a place called The Fish Bowl. It wasn't there last time I visited and was really neat! It is a restaurant and bowling alley with a great undersea theme:

Aw thank you so much!
It took a bit of working out (Which to anyone more experienced would have probably found easy) but i'm still learning ^_^

So many ideas! I can't wait to start stalking. No recycled sari yarn,though.  Grin But I have two very cool pieces of hardware, and if I don't use them for this swap, I'll make myself a necklace!

I made up a bunch of little boxes...I told you I was obsessed. They have turned out to be the perfect little "quick, I need a little gift" item. I fill them with Jelly Bellies and a little charm. I also added a ribbon hanger so you can turn them into an ornament if you so desire. This swap is fun.

Oh wow! As usual there is so much beautiful stuff in this gallery!! I'm much delayed in posting photos of what I received LimeRiot (my apologies!!). I spent the week in Florida and didn't know until the 14 hour trip down that my mother-in-law decided she didn't need internet in her home anymore. My husband also caught the flu on the way down, so we didn't spend as much time at my parents' house as I hoped (to steal their internet Wink ).

So here is my super amazing package from Lime!! Sorry for the quick pictures I took the morning I got the package. I was running late to work and had to pack and hit the road as soon as I got off, so I was doing what I could to make sure I got pictures Tongue

She sent me the most adorable little fox pillow that fits right in with my outdoor/woodland themed throw pillows and living room decor! The little fox is so adorable, and the fabric is perfect Cheesy

And a super perfect stand-mixer cover! I love the colors and vintage-y feel to the fabric! This is way better than the solid black one - complete with bleach stains - that I had before Smiley The little loop on the top is also really handy to hang it out of the way when I'm using my mixer!

She also really spoiled me with extras! I got a handful of goodies from her holiday crafting party and a foxy sign that now resides on my desk at work Grin (it already got some comments the one day I was in after getting the package). I also already took the handwarmer to work to keep my fingers from freezing. Whoever has control over the thermostat must be a super warm blooded person Tongue

I really adore everything, and I had a blast being your partner, LimeRiot!! I hope we can do it again in the future Grin

Prompt:  December Challenge India
Team: Wordy
Bonus Points: UFO
Project Name: India inspired mermaid
Project Link:
Brief Description: I had started this 5x7 canvas for the 4x6 swap which I didn't use because, well, I can't measure and most people aren't big fans of pink. It was just a generic mottled background. The tail is a scrap paper from a set of henna tattoo patterns. I printed the facial medallion in ink pigments which really didn't want to lay over the acrylic but I sealed the heck out of it and it worked. I have a hot pink office chair so I am going to put it on my desk wall. I might go over the lines one more time because the bumpiness of the canvas is bugging me.
