me and my sister

Karen was able to fly up to Utah for Aunt Leah's birthday get-together, and who could pass up a chance to snap a picture?? (Thanks for taking it Kurt!!)

My Aunt turns 90!!

Aunt Leah.

She is still going strong at age 90.

From the beautiful flowers in California to the cacti of Arizona...

Thursday, March 10, 2011


Imagine my surprise while fixing myself some scrambled eggs I found this in 2 eggs.

Spring in California

I know this may come as a surprise to some of you, but on my way to Kerman, CA to get my car I stopped along the way as a few quilt stores. These flowers were in a walkway between some buildings. I couldn't help but take a few pictures to remind me that yes, Virginia, there will be Spring in Utah.
(We just haven't seen it yet.)

Marcie and me...

On my way back to California Marcie and I met up at my favorite place for a late lunch. We talked and talked for a couple of hours. Fun times, Marcie...

Have I fallen asleep and woke up to Christmas????Today I could see the lawn. yup...the brown dead lawn...
It's really quiet outside--I kind of like it.

Just because

My girlfriend has this quilt hanging in her craft room, and I had to make it...I had to! So this is the beginning of mine. I love love love doing the hand work. The buttonhole stitch around the eggs is done by hand as well as all the other stitching. The background colors are actually the same...the picture is WEIRD!! it couldn't be the photographer. :)
Because I have nothing else to do... HA!!
