And, it isn’t even Halloween yet…

I won a giveaway at The Quilted Nest and Robin sent it to me…


68 Pre-cut 6-inch squares of lovely flannel – just perfect for a sweet baby quilt!  And, since the cutting is all done – it will be an easier project to finish.  Thanks a bunch, Robin.

My insurance agent sent me a gift certificate to Amazon – It was a thank you for taking the time to answer some questions…and I treated myself to this:


Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives: An All-American Road Trip by Guy Fieri. 

Now everyone that knows me – knows I love Diners!  Oh, yeah… Drive-ins are harder to find – but, I can always pick out a dive!  And, they always have the best food!  There is even the recipe for American Chop Suey from The Red Arrow  Diner in Manchester, New Hampshire.

Besides that – I just love watching Guy on Food TV – He also does a show called Guy’s Big Bite along with the Diners, Drive-ins and Dives show.

My other treat to myself was this: 

Weaving Made Easy by Liz Gipson – Since I am learning how to weave this was the perfect book for me…and I am most excited about reading it…and making some of the beautiful patterns!

    Ditto for me about the diners. I had a favorite in my ol’ home town. And would often go out of my way (WAAAAAAAAYYYYY out of the way) to visit them. My favorite is the Wellsboro Diner, in north central PA. But, yeah, thanks for reminding me of those memories, and congrats on the flannel win!

    See if the diner book has “Marge’s Diner” in Avalon, NJ (I think it would be Avalon…might be Swainton, though.) IF you come to Delaware and we go to NJ on the ferry to do a day or so there in the Cape May area, I’ll take you to Marge’s. It is a dive but VERY good and you’d love it.
