I haven't been on this site since 2014. How is everyone? What are you working on? Looking at my pictures I posted on here awhile back I need to upload some new ones. Reach out let me know what you have been up to and I'll do the same.
I'm so excited to tell you the women who's been renting my house decided to buy it. We did the closing today. This has been a burden on me for a long time.
We finally got the rail up between the kitchen eating area and the family room.
We only have ten days left before heading back north! Hoping the major storms are done by then! We rented a home for next year this week. The management group said they rent 80 homes and had only three left. Luckily, one was the one we wanted. They have never seen it so crazy! With the winter so bad, people are getting ready for next winter.…Continue
We returned from Beaverton on Monday, taking the alternate route, which goes through/by Eugene. We had a lovely view of Mt. Washington as we came over Santiam Pass.

Went to my favorite quilt shop ...Quilt Lover's Hangout in North Ft. Myers. They moved! Beautiful new shop. They are always so friendly and helpful. There was a newbie trying to buy supplies for a class...it was fun listening to her questions and concerns.
Told her, the only thing you have to worry about...there is no treatment for this…
We received a lot of snow this past week.
