What a week! Soren and his entourage came for Thanksgiving, since we won't be able to be together for Christmas this year.
I spent most of the week cooking and cleaning. The kids arrived Wednesday night, and we had Thanksgiving dinner early in the evening on Thanksgiving. The dinner…Continue
Important things about Wyoming:
My friends and I have been finishing things this past week. Here's Janet's latest quilt top:
Wow! What a week! Monday we shopped the Memorial Day sale at Hancock Fabrics and got the fabric to recover the seat cushions and pillows for our porch furniture:
In spite of my injuries, I made it to Vintage Stitchers this week.
Wishing everyone a very Happy New Year!
Christmas was good, but my birthday, which started at a few minutes after 10:00 PM, which was a few minutes after midnight in Florida, where I was born many, many years ago, sucked! Well, this was supposed to be the "Big 70." It was, actually 70, but it was by far the worst birthday of my life, if you don't…Continue
It's Thanksgiving time, and I'm feeling grateful for the roof over my head and food on my table. Not everyone is so lucky. When I drive to Salt Lake City, I often run into people with signs that say, "Homeless. Please help."
Friends have told me that they are reluctant to give money to these people, because they are concerned that it won't be used for food. Even if they use it to buy food at a fast food restaurant or convenience store, they won't get much for their…Continue
After the long trip home from Golden, Colorado, I had to get up in the morning to go to Vintage Stitchers. It was worth it, though. Brenda had this wonderful tesselation quilt to show off. She's putting the binding on now.
Rebecca has started a new appliqué project (of course)! She has all the pieces glued…Continue
We've had some progress on all fronts here. First, we finally got our first snowfall of the season. This was my back yard:
The resorts are happy. Now if it will stay cold enough, maybe they can keep some of it to form the base they will add to when they make snow. (All of our local…Continue
Common Threads met at Julie's on Thursday. Julie had this Halloween quilt on the wall:
My head is still spinning from the week's activities! However, I had lots of time to work on the Dogwood Blossoms cardigan:
In the center at the top, you can see where I bound off for the armholes and cast on…Continue
The colors are changing at our house. Here's what our street looks like:
It still isn't cold yet, but we take the basil plant in at night. We often get a light snow in September, but it hasn't happened yet. Maybe soon.
The demolition continues. Today Tom is putting up a barrier to keep the demo/construction dust on the "job" and our of our…Continue
It was a busy week! Sunny and I went to visit clients in the nursing home as usual on Tuesday.
Then we had Common Threads on Thursday. My friend Ellen is working on this French Braid design for a quilt top (above). Kay finished a baby blanket for her cleaning lady, who is expecting (below).…Continue
The Ravellenic Games are over, along with the London Olympics. (Do I need permission to mention the "Games?" If so, I ask for forgiveness.)
In spite of being incredibly busy with other things and sick for one day last week, I managed to finish three pairs of fingerless mitts for…Continue
We barely got the clothes washed from our trip when it was time for the Ravelympics Ravellenic Games.
(The U.S. Olympic Committee complained about the name, so Ravelry had to change it.)
I'm "competing" for Team…Continue
While some of you were reading my blog post for last week, DH, the pups and I were exploring the Oregon coast from Seaside to Florence.
We camped near the ocean at Nehalem Bay, Newport and Florence, one night each. It was great to see the ocean again, and Rocky and Sunny enjoyed being…Continue
The body is almost finished. The nose is just resting on the appliqué. I have to sew it on and do the nostrils in reverse-appliqué, as I did for the eyes.…Continue
