  11. The best spot is here, in my country (which is Poland). The province called Warmia-Masuria, especially Masuria part - it is called "the land of a thousand lakes". I live in Ilawa, and there is the longest lake in Poland - Jeziorak. There is also my favourite beach, where I can dream, relax, sometimes create :) Simply the best place for me.

    ReplyDelete
  12. The best spot is in southern Sweden, a place named Åhus, where there is a wonderful beach.

  13. I love Lindisfarne island in the coast in Northern England - great at any time of the year! The rugged landscape, castle and the boats turned upside-down to repurpose them as sheds - fantastic! Have a look here: (http://conferences.ncl.ac.uk/icird2004/lindisfarne2.jpg) x ammartini

  14. My favourite spot is the area around Padstow in Cornwall - you've got a group of several around the rocky coastline, all with soft sand, rockpools and nice waves, although I prefer Constantine and Treyarnon bays - they're separated by a lovely rocky headland and you can choose which beach you head down to. The headland is my favourite place ever to sit and sea-watch. You get the Atlantic crashing down on the rocks, and I can spend hours deep in thought watching the water.

  15. My favorite beach is in Sitia, Creta. I spend a wonderful holiday there as a eight year old girl. Thanks for the giveaway and greetings from germany, Hildy

  16. During the summer months I love the Oregon or Washington coastlines. During winter though is it far to cold and windy and I prefer the beaches of Kona Hawaii. I wish I could afford to go on a vacation there every winter.

    Thanks for such a generous giveaway.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  22. The beach in front of the Maui Four Seasons was pretty impressive. This summer the beach of the northern Oregon Coast - including rain and fog with patches of sunshine will have to do (two weeks baby!) I LOVE this line of fabric but have not quite decided what to do with it yet!

    ReplyDelete

Once upon a time...there was a little girl who went to Misquamicut Beach, RI...she thought it was lovely, but had stayed up too late the night before with her older sisters and fell asleep on the beach...upon waking she was a red tomato (and wonders now where were her parents???)and spent most of the night throwing up from probably too much sun, right? I spent a lovely time at Cape May, NJ with my hubby once upon a time also...

  40. The best beach vacation spot is Grand Haven, Michigan. There is a state park in addition to the city beach and township beach. The soft sand and Lake Michigan make an unbeatable combination. Of course, it is my hometown, so I am a bit prejudiced.

  53. Hmm, I would imagine the best vacation beach spot would be on some tropical island somewhere..Hawaii or the Bahama's or something...wouldn't that be nice?!..the only beaches I've visited is up and down the coast of California. I used to live in walking distance of it down near LA. And in Fort Bragg too. Any beach I can get to, is a nice vacation. Thanks for a great giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  64. I don't know if I can pick a favorite, but I have happy memories of Duck, North Carolina. Ft Walton Beach, Florida is wonderful, so is Surfside Beach, South Carolina. Most beautiful beaches I've been to would have to be on Kauai, Hawaii. Hope to go back someday! Thanks for the chance to sew with some Lucy's Crab Shack.

    ReplyDelete

  78. I'll try again with a comment... I live just 20 minutes from Siesta Key Beach in Florida which has made the best beaches list for years. The sand is pure white and so fine it's like powdered sugar. I rarely go though as I am not a beach person! I love this fabric line!

    ReplyDelete

  92. Thanks for the fabulous giveaway. Lucy's Crab Shack is tempting. I like the beaches of Panama City Beach, Florida, with all the sugar sands ... and of course, Fort Lauderdale beach as I once lived in FTL.

    ReplyDelete
  93. Welllll...Many years ago, my hubby was stationed in Hawaii with the Marine Corps and we lived there for about 14 months. Now you have to remember that we were young and pretty strapped for $$ so we didn't do the 'touristy' things. We also had a tiny baby but we did manage to get to the beach a couple of times and Hanauma Bay on Oahu was far and away the most beautiful beach I have ever seen. A natural coral reef formed three separate crystal clear pools, perfect for snorkeling and also protected from sharks coming in. Like I said it was years ago, so the crowds were not as bad as they would be now. Thanks so much for a chance in this fun giveaway Hugs...
    ***Note: Just a couple of weeks ago while my hubby was in Maryland visiting my Grandson, they ate at a "Lucy's Crab Shack" somewhere in their travels, LOL. True Story!!!

    ReplyDelete
  100. I used to work for an airline and traveled a lot. I don't think I could pick a favorite place. They each have something different to offer. However, I would move to Switzerland in a heartbeat!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  117. I'm fair skinned, so I don't really enjoy the whole lay-out-on-the-beach experience. But, I do love going to the beaches in cooler climates. My favorite beach town is Mendocino, CA. It's such a beautiful place - I wish I could live there forever!

    ReplyDelete
  123. Hands down, the Brittany Coast of France. It's not anything you would expect to see in Europe. Surf City, French style. I wrote about it on my blog. http://www.randomthoughtsdoordi.com/2010/09/surf-city-france.html

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  127. San Diego is really fun for vacations.

    ReplyDelete
  128. I liked Cape Hatteras, and especially Ocracoke Island, in North Carolina's outer banks. Hawaii is nice too, but I'm not so much into flying as I used to be :)

    ReplyDelete
  129. The only beach I've ever been to is on the Gulf Coast. I remember driving along the beachfront and stopping to walk in the sand. Well, we didn't realize how hot the sand was and once my husband stepped on the sand, he did a little dance all the way back to the car, yelling "ouch" all the way!

    ReplyDelete
  130. I love love going to the virgin islands.

    ykatrina at hotmail dot com

    ReplyDelete
  131. What cute fabric for a summer table cloth. The most memorable beach I've ever been on was Normandy beach in France. Not a great swimming beach, but seeing the old World War II bunkers still in place and the cemetery not very far away was definitely an amazing experience.

    ReplyDelete
  132. The only beach I've been too is Cannon Beach in Oregon . . . beautiful, but rather chilly. Thanks for the chance.

    ReplyDelete
  133. I'm not much for the heat and being on the beach, but as long as there is a cup of coffee and a balcony for me, I'm there! ...I do love the fabrics!

    ReplyDelete
  134. In Portugal you can find many beautiful beaches, I grew up in the coast so I'll have to choose São Pedro de Moel. But if you ever come over Portugal be sure to also visit Arrifana in Alentejo. Beautiful as a beach can be.

    Thank you for the giveaway :)

    ReplyDelete
  135. My husband hates the beach so we usually avoid beach vacations, but I would DIE to go for a swim in Cadaquès, Spain. Not too far from where I live, so I still can dream about it :-)

    ReplyDelete
  136. Well, my favourite beach is Mossel Bay beach in South Africa. Almost white sand, always blue skies. Fabulous!!

    ReplyDelete
  137. I grew up on Long Island - so I was always just a couple miles from the beach! We're headed to Myrtle Beach this summer to check it out!

    ReplyDelete
  138. My absolute favorite beach is Gulf Shores, Alabama. We go with my husband's extended family every year, and it is a blast! Gorgeous beaches, and lots to do. We leave in 2 weeks and I am counting the days!

    ReplyDelete
  141. I live in South Florida and there are oh so many great beaches in our state. I also enjoy Bimini and would love to go to Tahiti...Bali...North Shore, Hawaii.

    ReplyDelete
  142. On the east coast I love Wingaersheek beach North of Boston. It is private most of the year and you have to pay to go there ($25?). But if the weather is beautiful before the season opens it is free. There are huge pools where the water gets nice and warm. A huge expanse of sand. Nothing like all the crowded California counterparts, but if I pick a San Diego beach we always love la jolla shores...

    ReplyDelete
  143. Best vaca beach?? Sanibel Island in Florida!! The beach sure sounds good right about now...sigh...

    ReplyDelete
  144. I've never been to a beach, but would love to go to Hawaii someday. Thank you for a chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  145. Best beach I ever visited was Coastao do Santinho in Santa Catarina, Brazil. I was a missionary there, so technically I didn't get to go "to the beach" (in the water, and things), but when my family came to get me, we stayed at the resort, and it is paradise!

    ReplyDelete
  146. La Jolla was a great fun beach vacation.

    ReplyDelete
  147. We've been to Maui, Hawaii, and loved it there. On the west side by Lahaina was where we stayed.

    We have also been to Punta Cana, Dominican. It was beautiful, and less expensive, but crammed with people.

    After comparing the two we decided to save up again for Hawaii because although it costs more to travel there, we feel like it's worth it.

    ReplyDelete
  148. I'm not much of a beach person but as a child I remember our family going to Florida and the sand being so light colored. As an adult I went on a trip I won to Coronado Island in California and that was nice. Other than that, the only beaches around here are along rivers. Thanks for doing this giveaway! :)

    ReplyDelete
  149. Manzanita on the Oregon Coast, love love love!

  154. We are this very day at Ft. Walton Beach in Florida. The sand is so white this year. We usually stay in Destin. It's so much fun to come with the grands.
    However, the most wonderful beach I've ever been on was in Jamaica when we went on a cruise and took the beach excursion. Oh my, what clear, beautiful blue water! I want to go back!

    ReplyDelete
  155. We like to go Solimar in California

    ReplyDelete
  156. I love the colors in this line! I grew up vacationing in Destin, Florida on the Gulf Coast. Sugary white sand and gorgeous blue/green water. I've traveled to lots of other beaches since, and an uncrowded day along the Gulf is still my favorite. Kimberly 4throse(at)bellsouth(dot)net

  157. Maui has to best beaches. The water is so clear and warm.

  163. We went on a Caribbean cruise in January and my favourite beach was in Curacao - BEAUTIFUL! We paid to use a resort beach and had the best staff, no vendors, and lots of shade.

  164. A few years ago my husband and I visited Coronado Beach in San Diego. It was beautiful especially since we went in early March when there was snow on the ground in DC. Heaven! Thanks for the chance!

  168. My favorite, if not most exotic, vacation spot is La Conner, WA, my husband and I have been to the same inn three times now and it's a nice close escape with wonderful shopping and restaurants, and the most romantic place we can go without breaking the bank.

  169. I don't know about the best beach, but I just ran a race around Cape Cod, and those are the cleanest, most beautiful beaches I've seen. Granted, I haven't been to Mexico or the Caribbean, but they were beautiful!

  171. I would say the North Shore in Oahu is the best beach I have been to. I love this fabric, I really want to convince one of my girls to let me decorate their room with it.

  172. I grew up in Wisconsin, so we have a beach here on the Mississippi River, but my husband grew up in New Jersey, and always talks about the Steel Pier with the World Famous Diving Horse and such famous acts as Totie Fields and Paul Anka. Together we're looking forward to our Disney Dream cruise and the crystal blue waters and sandy beaches of Castaway Cay, Disney's private island.

  174. We went snorkeling off a teensy little island in the Great Barrier Reef. Now that was some beach! A once-in-a-lifetime experience for sure!

  175. I used to go to Myrtle Beach as a kid. I miss it! It was around 3 hours from me. I've never been to any other beaches so I can't really compare, but I loved it.

  176. My favorite beach spot is Cannon Beach Oregon. We like to go in the evening and build a fire and sit and watch the sun go down. One time we spent the whole night there during a full moon. Strange as that may sound we were not the only people all night on the beach.

  177. I'm not a big beach person, but our honeymoon was to Key West and we camped in Dry Tortugas National Park on the beach and woke up to the sunrise each morning over the beach from our tent - it was amazing! Thanks for the giveaway!

  185. My fondest childhood vacation memories come from the dinky little beach on Lake Pepin....where we rented a cabin only 7 miles from home....but it seemed far away. :)

  186. I can say with no hesitation that I am not fond of beaches. I really try not to say I hate anything, but I do hate the feeling of sand on my feet, and my body does not like to be in direct sunlight for very long. That being said, I did enjoy my trip to Cape Hatteras (east coast, USA) immensely! Fortunately, we had a house on the beach with air conditioning. I don't get to vacation often, so it was a huge luxury!!!

  189. I haven't been to the beach in a LONG time, being landlocked in the Midwest, but I did visit Cape May, NJ about 8 years ago and really liked it!

  193. My favorite has been Oak Island, NC. I have fond memories of being there with my family multiple years. It isn't the prettiest I have ever been to but it is so laid back and relaxing.

    Wish I were there now.

    Thanks so much for another opportunity to win!
