AKA Merilee
My husband of just about 44years and I moved to London 4 years ago in May; our “real” home is a home we designed and built on a lake in northern Minnesota. My husband retired once but as was the way with most pensions in the early-mid 2000′s, ours melted and he went back to work.
I have always done some kind of hand craft from embroidery to counted cross-stitch to quilting to needlepoint and now beading. As I love color and designing with it, this bead addiction has become expensive but I don’t anticipate quitting anytime soon!

    Gorgeousness personified! Love this fall combo and I adore Skittles … congrats!

  • Chicky Red-haired Grammy commented on the Fresh Pick “Pink Pumpkins for October”   4 weeks, 1 day ago

    Absolutely, Pam! I love the pink felt balls and plan to make a pink necklace for October!

    Many years ago I made a necklace with multi-colored felt balls decorated with seed beads and sequins. It is still my holiday go-to necklace.

    Robin, you crack me up! This pick would make an all-day meal.
    Think I will start with the Sunday breakfast and end the day with coffee with marshmallow cream … will think about lunch later.

    These earrings are terrific and beautiful! My mother-in-law was a warm and caring person and I loved her to bits. My grandmother? Not at all.

    Hi Merrilee! With a holiday approaching I was thinking of you. I know that it’ll be a hard one (my mother’s father passed this week when she was just a teenager. She and my Nana always would get a little down this time of year.) Remember that you are loved.
