Reading, quilting, animals, travel, photography, and baseball. I was married to a great guy for over 50 years. TVMQG president. TVMQG.com
This special request quilt is finished. Oden requested a quilt for his full-size bed. He specified that he wanted a pattern, not scrappy, and a white background. I took the Folksy Flock pattern from a magazine for a throw-size quilt and enlarged it to this. I'm very happy with how it turned out. With any luck, I'll deliver it this weekend. #quilt #folksyflockquilt #flyinggeese #oden #folksyflock
First calla lily of 2018. I'm so lucky, this plant was a cutting from a plant belonging to my 90+ year old friends' mother, it has a long history. #greenthumb #backyard #plantsofinstagram #murrieta365 #murrieta
Seen on out walk this morning, it's going to be a great day. This is the park that I walk the 52 steps, then walk a couple of trails. A man warned me about a coyote on the trails, I kept my eyes open and sure enough, I spotted him, we turned around and altered our walk. #walk #walkingthedogs #murrieta365 #murrieta
Book #5 for 2018. I don't know if I loved this novel because I'm old or because it's a great story. I think the later. John Boyne said "When I'm an old man, I want to Hendrik Groen." #18readingchallenge
This is my version of the free Tall Tales Quilt Block by @katebasti. Now to turn it into a Mugrug! #paperpiecing @tulapink
This is the first time I've seen birds express interest in my 4-plex birdhouse. California Bluebirds, too. This bird mansion was installed 2 1/2 years ago. (Taken through the kitchen window. )
I admit it, I'm a dork. When I got home after walking the dogs, I discovered that I was wearing half of two different pairs of shoes. All the BN people, now I'm as cool as Nary!
@punkrockmom Look at this pattern that came in my newest quilting magazine all the way from Britain!
Go to a wedding, come home with swag! Sweatshirt,sweatpants and a T. Thanks to my SIL who works for the FD.
Trying a new restaurant.
Wonderful outdoor festival.
Book #3 for 2018. Many of my favorite authors contributed to this short story collection. I love cars and each story is centered around a particular car. Great read. I'm meeting with the the family in a bit, we'll have lunch with the newlyweds before they leave on their honeymoon. #18readingchallenge
This is family, me, daughters Sharon and Carrie, granddaughter Erin, her new hubby Jaime, son-in-law Ole, grandson Brett and Ole's brother Lynn.
All dressed up for the wedding. I decided on flats instead of heels for the big day. The hotel clerk took my photo for me. The high temperature today is 27! #goingtothewedding #todaystheday #babyitscoldoutside
