Here is another UFO completed. Our group, "Scrappies", started this challenge, a mystery quilt, the summer of 2011. As you can see, I'm a little slow; as usual I completed the top and there it sat until now. I love the bright colors.…Continue
Hard to believe that a month ago I posted pics of 20 inches of snow in one day in our area. Today I could post pics of a wild fire if I had some.

This is our front doorstep.…Continue
