    Where do you live?

    I live in Conway, South Carolina. If you visit be careful driving around the old part of town, we have trees in our streets. The one in the background is in the middle of the intersection.

    FreedomLover Great photo!! I live in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Love it here! I'm originally from the Chicago area and my husband is from Toronto and neither of us want to go back to cold winters. (We could do with some cooler summers though!) I don't have a photo easily on hand right now, but maybe I'll have a chance to get some good photos over the weekend since I plan to play with my new camera lens.

      Thank you, I can't take credit for that photo, it's from the net. We have family in Sand Springs.

      I'm in the OK Panhandle smack-dab between KS and TX. Hence, the name of PanhandleAnnie's (Vintage Crochet). Howdy!

    I'm in San Antonio, Texas, but, being an Air Force brat, I grew up all over. I could do with cooler summers, too.

      I’m in Central Florida in one of the communities surrounding Orlando. We moved here to be close to our son and his family and have lived here a year.

        Amore our library really is gorgeous, like a park inside! There is even a little "creek" in the lower level I have taken cuttings from spider plants there and the ones in my home are all the children & grandchildren of the library plants

      FreedomLover well, I'm about 3 or 4 hours north of you, living in the small town of Knightdale, North Carolina, just 15 minutes from our state Capital of Raleigh. I've lived in NC for 34 years now, before that I was a military brat that has lived all over this great nation. I've lived in California (San Fransisco, San Diego, and LA), Florida (was born in Melbourne, also lived in Orlando), in Washington State (Brimmerton), Wisconsin (Kenosha), Illinois (Great Lakes, Chicago), just to name a few!

      I've been crocheting since I was a child, and just recently got into pattern design.

      Great to meet you all!

        We lived in Apex for 18 years and had to get out of there after the magazine article.

        I also live in NC, north of Winston-Salem the quaint very small town of Walnut Cove. I’ve lived here since 1991, and have the state’s most visited state park around the corner. I grew up in Texas, Alabama and West Virginia.

      I'm in SW Michigan. Close enough to easily drive to Lake Michigan, but just far enough to avoid the summer tourist takeover.

        I'm in West MI. Yup, close enough to the beach to enjoy it, but far enough away to be off the beaten track.

      I live in the foothills of Colorado, living the good life with my hubby of 29 years.

        Beautiful city. We drove through there last Sept the week after the hurricane. The traffic was horrendous coming through there in the evening. I can't imagine how the locals felt about that.

          The traffic might have been due to the storm. Route 501 can be quite congested at times, but locals know how to get to the beach without getting on 501.

        Chiming in from your neighbour to the north - Alberta, Canada - where the canola fields are in full glorious yellow colour. Wish I could post a picture but not savvy enough. (First try put the picture right on my words!) But you could always Google it!

            Greetings from Western NC. Grew up in Minnesota, left when I joined the Army. Settled in Virginia and lived there for 23 years. Moved to the mountains of North Carolina in 2009 to get away from the hurricanes and humidity. Well, so far the hurricanes have stayed away. Humidity has been climbing the last few years. Still love living in the mountains.

              Hello from the State of Jefferson, USA. Our hilltop home enjoys an expansive mountain view and the illusion of complete privacy, despite its mere 5 acres. Jefferson is God-fearing, gun-loving, and deeply conservative---just the way we like it. But friends and well-meaning neighbors are welcomed with open arms.

                Depending on how far north you are, I may not be too far from you. I’m in Northern California too.

                Hmm, I think I live close. I am in Willows, Glenn Co, right on I-5. Knitter, spinner, weaver, maker of soap and quilts, collector of guns, and still a Catholic

              Beautiful photo. Absolutely beautiful. I too am deeply conservative, also a Catholic. Nice to be in a place that is accepting of that. It's also nice to see a rainbow in the right context.
