one of my friends in the Charming Girls Quilt Club... http://cottoncharmquilts.typepad.com/charmingchatter/
it's my tea towel!
And look at the colors she choose....isn't it beautiful!
I say no no "Jay" you cannot dry the dishes with this one... it's a keepsake!
I am certain Cora has been in my house before....... to pick these colors she had to know the colors in my décor because it matches p e r f e c t l y Oh! and the recipe.... "Key Lime Pie" it has a very southern ring to it which will certainly remind me of my friend every time I make it .
Cora embroidered a beautiful stitch on each side of the recipe card..sooo her!Thank you!
Merci beaucoup, Cora!

Lots happen in 40 years..... but the highlights...
The Tufts' weddings all took place in August....
To celebrate.....a cook out... on the menu lobster And the desserts...with an "S"..Hard to believe it is 40 years! well....maybe the white hair gives it away! Double celebration...Our son-in-law David is 39 today!
"Bill" did not dampen the celebrations.... Hurricane "Bill", that is, was not too agressive when it came around South West Nova Scotia...
so the day was most enjoyable with the family!
