Day 4 of Pick Four blog hop

I just want to say that I hope everyone, not just those of us on this trip,  is OK and hasn't suffered too much from Hurricane Irene?
Today we're making our way to Florida, where our host will be Kim (yes, the famous author of Scrap Basket Surprises and Scrap Basket Sensations) from Magnolia Bay Quilts.

I'm sure you've all heard of Florida, after all it is a well known holiday destination area, but here a few facts that you may not have known before.
  • 27% of Floridians own cell phones but no landline.
  • Florida's population is approximately 18.5 million.
  • Sidney Poitier and Faye Dunaway were born in Florida, and Johnny Depp and Enrique Iglesias were both raised in the state.
  • I haven't mentioned food at all - not even oranges!
Today's forecast is for a temperature of 35C 95F.  but according to the long-range weather forecast I've just looked at, there is no chance of snow today!

Here's the itinerary for our tour, in case you've lost yours.


  1. Bayou Joe's in Panama City, FL makes the most amazing crab cakes! Floridians like sea food.

  2. Waving at you from New York State. I will pop in on Kim - powering down at noon time.

  3. We also are the home to the NY Yankees (baseball), the Tampa Bay Rays (baseball) the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (football). And no we do not have snow, but have had our share of Hurricanes :-(

  4. LOL, no snow for today or any other day. I'm not one of those 27% though - I have both.

  5. Hi, Sue! I'm still loving your wonderful book! My intention was to select a project, but I haven't been able to narrow it down to just one. Close, but it's a struggle. :-)

    I hope everyone affected by Irene is somewhere safe and dry.

  6. Oooh, Florida oranges :) I'm pretending this sunshine is going to stay for the day :) Did I ever tell you I've seen the Tampa Bay Rays live and in the flesh play baseball? (at Fenway Park home to the Boston Red Socks who won)

  7. I love Florida! I have spent many a vacation there. I love the fresh oranges. I will happily eat enough to ruin the enamal on my teeth!

  8. Never been to Florida but but loved the review that Magnolia Bay wrote. Like the idea about quilting suggestions and up close pictures of the quilting. Thank you for this great giveaway.

    Have a super great sewing and stitching day.
