Where have I been?

I have severely neglected posting to my blog. How rude of me. I hook you in and leave you for months.

Summer got busy of course. And now we are almost done with 2010. My latest news is my brother came from FL with his wife for a visit. It was wonderful to see them. The sad part was they came right after I had broken my right ankle and sprained my left. I was in this big boot and mostly in a wheelchair. He brought good weather with him so at least he saw some sunny days. I did too from inside looking out the window. This break happened in my front yard in a hole--Larry removed a big rock from the yard and had not filled the hole--I found that hole.

I am walking again but carefully and sometimes painfully. It was 3 months and I was not able to use my beloved long arm quilter! I am back in business with that again but I have to be careful to not over do.

We had a blizzard yesterday that fizzled. It did cover up this mess in my front yard.

Better and prettier pics to follow on this blog if I can remember to do that--getting old is not for sissies you know!

eagles at the beach

This is an eagle we encountered while walking the beach a few days back. He was chewing on a fish carcass. There were three of us walking and he kept an eye on all three of us.

Kyle's graduation quilt

Kyle, our oldest grandson, graduated from New Meadows HS in ID. Kyle is Paula's oldest son Kyle has enlisted in the US Army and leaving soon for boot camp. The pattern I used for his graduation quilt is called "Gathering Friends" by Kathryn Squibb & Deborah Jacobs. I have to admit it turned out well with a lot of free-motion quilting done on the Lizzie.

Been a while since I posted here. Had a computer crash so lost everything. Trying to catch up and get back on speed. Pics to come soon. Spring too.

Sunset tonight

I love sunsets that involve clouds. It set about 6:30 tonight. Still above freezing when I took the pic.

Lax in posting but lots of quilting!

This is one of my quilts I recently finished. I did the quilting on my Tin Lizzie. Sure is fun and I am proud of this one.

I have been lax about posting here to my blog. I know there are those who follow me but it has been months since I have posted here. FB gets in the way.

It is has been a very mild February. We are getting lots of sunshine now too with the longer daylight and the sun sets in the west instead of the south. There is more winter to come!
