walking on the beach

 While it is snowing back home in Poughkeepsie I am enjoying a windy but warm walk on the beach in NC, I am so happy we live here!  I picked up a dozen sand dollars and many beautiful shells while walking 5 miles with a friend.......Life is good :0).  Happy Thanksgiving where ever you are.  Happy Sewing, Kim

Veteran's Day 2014

Thank you to all who have served and to those who are serving today.
That includes my parents, my four brothers, my sisters husband, their son and his wife,
and all the rest of the service community that have allowed us to be free.
Give thanks to these men and women when you see them in uniform and
remember Freedom is NOT free.

I love the beach :0)

Shrimp boats out working

The little sandpipers running in and out of the waves

Sometimes they run very close by

Even though it was a cloudy day it was still 75 degrees  the first week of Nov.

Making progress

Making progress on my Flags of the American Revolution quilt.  I enjoy the slow pace of hand sewing and having a portable project to take along while waiting here and there. I'll be linking up with  Humble Quilts to show my progress, you can slip over there and see how everyone else is coming along too.  Happy Sewing, Kim

These buttons are just lying on top auditioning . 

And .....DH bought himself a new toy.
