I think that tea towel would look better in my kitchen - ha! Outdoor crocheting, so fun. I like the strawberry applique too. The Sally Goldenbaum books are in my queue. So nice talking to you yesterday. xo

What a deeply saturated shade of blue. So unusual and so pretty.

So pretty in its simplicity. I really like this block.

Both of your fat cats are darling! We have a large JoAnn's store in town and it is wonderful. I can get lost in there for hours. And thank you for the incredible state quilt. You are so very generous to share your flower blocks and talent with us.

Custom made shoes? How luxurious. Paired with hand knit socks...comfort to the max!

First! In no particular order...I have a pretty good banana bread recipe that I will send to you. I sometimes add chocolate chips to it or cinnamon chips, if I have them. I know you will miss Miss Hitt. Good for her she has found some long term work and good for both she and the younger Mr. Staggs for being mature about the situation. I'm sure their relationship can transcend the distance and by doing what they need to, they bring that much more back to one another. All of our technology sure helps with making the distance seem shorter. What a great idea to send your scarf to another state. I never would have thought of that but it makes so much sense. You are so smart! Travel surely isn't as glamorous as it once used to be. Weighing my suitcase so I'm not over the limit, making sure I wear socks I don't mind walking on airport floors with, packing all my 3oz liquids in a ziplock bag, etc etc. I am so happy when I finally make it to my seat and my vitamin X kicks in ;-) We had 4 inches of snow this a.m. It was cold all day but sunny. I hope you are feeling better soon. I hate that feeling of wanting to do so much but not feeling like doing anything. But sometimes we need to listen to our bodies, get rest, stay hydrated and wait it out. Fingers crossed that your travel plans work out! :-) xox

The socks seem nearest to completion so I would go with those. Then I'd feel very accomplished and would happily move on to the next project! You've inspired me to take an inventory of my WIPs!
What a generous giveaway. Many thanks!

This is my favorite kind of post! You are like Mary Poppins with the bottomless carpetbag! I have a separate bag for each project...socks, vest, baby afghan, shawl.

An online book club would be interesting to try. Maybe that would get me to read more! I used to be such an avid reader. It has really taken a back seat to knitting as I can only do one thing at a time with my hands and eyes and I've been choosing knitting. I know many knitters listen to books on tape but my mind wanders too much to follow the story aurally. Our local library used to sponsor book clubs. I didn't always read the entire book but I loved attending the presentation anyway. An 'expert' would talk about the author, what was going on in the world to affect the writer and the story, and lots of other interesting info. I found it fascinating.

I do like soup and think I should eat it more often, especially for lunch. Our go-to Mexican restaurant has an excellent chicken tortilla soup. My comfort food definitely involves cheese...grilled cheese, mac and cheese, even cheese and crackers.

Happy new year (again!) to you and everyone in Merryville. I don't know what that blogger meant by 'substance' as I always find something, usually more than what I'm looking for, when I visit. I find that expectations are what trip us up in life and I guess in the blog world too. I try not to expect anything from the blogs I visit. Whatever the post is, it is a gift. Your scarf is really pretty. I can tell from the photo that your tension is good! Special Olympics chose a nice color combination. Hugs to all and hope everyone is healthy soon. xox

Thanks Darla. You know, I hadn't made the connection until you mentioned it but yes, there definitely was a water theme! I do love being around water though I only like swimming in the ocean. The springs are mineral springs so where you sit outside and dip your feet, it is 'normal' temp. They do have roman baths where the water is heated to over 100 degrees. That sounds pretty nice. I've been to natural hot springs in Colorado and Wyoming and it is heavenly. Have a wonderful weekend! -Beth

Thank you sweet Lena. I know you were with us in spirit and I'm sure we will have many more future bdays to celebrate together. And college graduation will be a wonderful thing! I think hydrangeas have become my favorite flower. I love all the variations of color. I think I might do a post on them as I take pix every time I see a blooming bush!! It is finally a bit cooler in these parts - anything under 100 degrees feels cooler - and there is talk of 70 degrees next week. Wow. Have a great weekend. xo beth

Thanks Meredith! Some might consider me a freak too as I attempt to age gracefully...I let my hair's 'natural' (aka gray) color shine through ;-) And it might sound trite, but when I see wrinkles around someone's eyes or mouth, I think that they have laughed and smile a lot. Have a great weekend!!

Gardenia and lilac are two very yummy smells. Now I may need to do a search of Meredith plants and see what I can find!!

I remember along the highways in Washington state there were bright yellow Scotch Broom plants. They were very pretty, especially considering all the exhaust they were breathing!

A lemon tree theme? Intriguing!! The lemons almost look like oranges and also taste sweeter than a usual lemon. I brought several home with the intention of making lemonade. We drank it almost everyday in Az and it was yummy! The flowers are so elusive. Huge buds one day, spectacular buds the next, and dried up the 3rd day. It was pretty cool to see the gardens change daily.
