It's A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

I know everyone north of us has been experiencing extreme cold and snow, but it's been a little nippy in NW Florida also. We're just not suppose to have windchills of 14 degrees! My poor little date palms have had to spend a few nights underwraps. But today it warmed up so Me and The Husband took a walk on the beach.

The Husband in a thoughtful pose. Isn't this beautiful!? The water was so clear and emerald green and the sand white as snow. The only thing that would have made it better would have been dolphins.Beach art???The tree of lost shoes and one glove.......................

Okay so I haven't been a total sewing slacker, I did get this purse finished. It's the Mini Miranda pattern from Lazy Girl Designs. Sorry the picture looks orangy it's really pink, deep rose and brown. It's a nice bag, easy to make but still a little large for my tastes. If I make it again, I'll trim the dimensions down.Spanish Grilled Cheese Sandwiches with machego, Medjool dates and jamon serrano on rosemary sourdough bread. This was very, very good. The sweetness of the dates and salty cheese is just a great combination, and the hint of rosemary from the bread was an added bonus.
It was from March 09' Bon Appetit .

It was a nice relaxing Sunday. I did start on some pants, more on that later.


  1. Chris your bag is gorgeous!!I use to be a small purse lover,but now that I've gotten use to the larger size, I couldn't go back to a smaller one. And walking on the beach in February!Sigh!! It doesn't seem right now that summer can ever come again here i New Brunswivk, Canada..
