My pets are awesome!

I have 2 grown children and 2 grandchildren. I'm a self taught quilter and I've been quilting about 6 years and love it. I've made many quilts for friends and relatives. I take pictures of each one and sometimes the back. We like to travel in our motorhome from June to mid Oct. Last 2 years, we went to AZ for 2 1/2 months and had a good time going to many cities, towns and out in the desert. We like to use our metal detector, but haven't found anything. Also, we went to 12 Mariner Spring Training games. Enjoyed seeing who's trying out and how they do. I'm still sewing quilts for Project Linus and our group gets together once a month. What fun to share ideas and just sit sewing and talking.

Our Last trip.

Posted on April 24, 2012 at 7:58pm 4 Comments

I know that I haven't posted for 1 year, but I do read and keep up with all the things going on and sometimes add my 2 cents worth. This last trip, we left home (in our motorhome) on Feb. 2nd for AZ., and got home on April 23rd.  We were in Oceanside, Ca,, for 1 week visiting some friends from our area, who were renting a beach cottage. We spent 1 month in Phoenix at a RV park, so we could go to Mariner Spring Traning games. We were able to attend 12. The weather was fantastic and we aquired…


Home again

We got home April 19th and it was still cold and rainy. Our daugther kept telling us not to come home, but to stay where we were nice and warm. We did have such a great time and loved all the warm, hot weather that we had. We've got caught up on all the things that we needed to and now are ready to play again. No more long trips until July, just shorter ones. We didn't do any crabbing in OR or WA, because we didn't want to freeze sitting there waiting for the crabs to eat the turkey legs.…


Time Marches ON

We are now in Bakersfield, CA. We just left Las Vegas after spending several days there. Did a lotof exploring and found the quilt shops for me and the shops that my DH wanted to go to. We ate a few lunches and dinners out. For my birthday, we went to Sam's Town where they had steak and lobster as a special. That lobster is a favorite. Before LV, we were in Bullhead City and spent time with my 88 yr old aunt. She and DH are getting ready to head back to ID for the…


Quartzsite, AZ

Good morning to all and a beatuful day.  We've now been to Tucson, Tombstone, Phoenix and now Quartzsite. Oh what a wonderful time we are having exploring so many different places and the weather has been great. We spent one day in Tombstone, looking over the old town. In Tucson, we were in Old Town , which is really neat and just explored. We also found the quilt shops, where I buy at least a fat quarter. I've met so many nice people. We spent 8 days in Phoenix, going… Continue

We've been to Yuma, Casa Grande, Tuscon, staying overnight in those towns and exploring other town and places there, since we left San Diego. Tombstone, is a touristy place, but really enjoyed it. I've been collecting fat quarters from every quilt shop I've been in and hope to make a quilt from my travels. Last night, we stayed in Florence, AZ at a nice RV and very friendly people. Today, were going to Phoenix, where we'll probably…

Thank you Sharon for the nice complement on my sewing room.  When I retired I decided to set up my living room as my sewing space.  ( I have another room that I watch t.v. in) I spend a lot of time in here doing what I love, SEWING. I enjoyed making Melody's quilt.  But it took a long time to get it finished due to my sick spell last year.

Please do let me know if you learn anything about Linda.  I had the pleasure of meeting her in person one summer when we visited Tennessee.  I didn't see anything further on facebook.  Perhaps someone will post there too.  I'll keep checking.  In the meantime I'll keep her in my prayers.

Thank you for the nice comment ,Sharon. The nice thing about a string quilt is I can just pick it up when ever I have a few minutes. It is fun, quick and doesn't take a lot of thinking. The hardest part has been finding the right weight paper and cutting it to size for the foundations. Hope to get at least 8 more blocks done over March break. They are very colourful. Lots of fun and a great way to use up thinner strips.

Thanks, Sharon, for the encouragement about the baby quilt.  I have forged ahead, even though I've had second thoughts about it.  I just need to FINISH something, and so far, I'm enjoying this, despite the angst.  :)  It is helping me get excited about other projects, and after such a long quilting slump, I'm grateful for anything that will get me motivated.  Too much fabric stash to quit now!

Thanks for taking the time to read my first blog and comment on it! It's so nice to get positive feedback. I laughed when you mentioned "old" clothes. I implemented a policy of my own about a year ago when I discovered a bag of clothes I had put aside for donation and "lost" up in my attic sewing room. When I opened it, I started to pull out some great shirts I'd totally forgotten about. Now my rule is, once it goes in the bag I don't look in there again! lol Those shirts are hanging in my closet. Maybe I'll try to donate them again in a few years! :D

Thanks for your nice comments.  Mr. Scarecrow is probably my favorite too!  He was lots of fun to make!

thank you for your kind comment. i am very lucky to have heat and power. many do not. if that were me i would just tell my family to postpone and have christmas a few days late. so far no fatalities which is the best news in a city of 4 million. city streets are impassable due to trees and downed power lines. the main roads have been salted and the trees removed. one day at a time!!

Sharon I wanted to say thanks for the comments on the quilt. I sent the 2 quilts to the girls and the one who opened the package called me and she was crying she was so happy. She said that this was a gift they would treasure forever. She asked that I pass on their thanks and to let all those donating blocks that they appreciated it so much.

Sharon - got that last of the split wood stacked and covered today.  We still have a bunch of limbs to cut down to size, but that will happen ... someday.  We are hoping to get to AZ after Thanksgiving to visit Adam, Jenna and Bailey. Hope it works out. I know you'll love going down there in January.

Safe travels!  I was born over the mountain from Boise, in Emmett!
