Lucky Me

i can't remember what i did to deserve more gifts. but this is what Melanie sent me.a beautiful "peace" stitching. i'll be hanging it on my "going out" door. to remind me to be nice to others. dish towel with hand stitched design. luv it. i'm a sucker for a new towel. luv them. a fantastic Duchy cookbook. still looking for these biscuits so i can make one of the recipes. i know they sell them here. it was wrapped in xmas paper with a note that i did not have to wait. i ripped it open like a little girl. had no clue about the history of the Duchy name. it's just like Melanie to give you something you have to read and of course helps you learn more. that's her.

i also have two very nice awards.

this one came a few weeks ago from Melanie of Jelly Bean Angel.
thank you Melanie !
i am passing on to Polly at Quilter Polly and Tine at Sodeste. both of my recipients are extremely busy individuals but manage to keep sewing as an important part of their lives. and i love them for that.

i am passing on to Sarah at Anyone Can Quilt and Melanie of Jelly Bean Angel. both of my recipients have the most amazing photos of Autumn and of their life.oh goodie. no rules. please pass on to a few fav's so we can meet them too.

and i finally drove to the beach. very much needed car repairs prevented me from just running there on a whim. but today i had about three hours of this.

it was cold this morning. when i left the city the schoolkids were wearing hats & coats. i was the only one wearing shorts. it was 61 degrees. but the sun was blazing hot.

KAREN!!!! I'm going to come here everyday and go to the beach!! I love, love, love it!! I'm supposed to be living in one of those houses that we see. But somehow, I ended up in Idaho. Landlocked.

Wow Messy Karen! What a wonderful surprise. Thank you so much for including me in your award. I really appreciate it. Now I better get some good fall pictures going! x

Just needed my beach fix. I could smell the salty air. I think you need to rig up a way to have this on your side bar. Just for me. You know, because it's ALL about me.

The beach looks lovely! I wish we lived closer to one, but Colorado is a little land-locked to have a beach nearby! :)
