I can't believe it's been almost three weeks since I last posted. How did that happen??
Well, I had a small vacation that took 10 days; I had my grandkids both before and after. And there you are... three weeks gone.
I have done almost no sewing but I did promise to send you pictures of the darling little bee mug rug I made for my friend. The front was made using a modified log cabin pattern. It seems that bee fabric is quite the rage these days. I bought most of this fabric in Sisters last summer.
The back was a panel: I mean the whole thing was maybe 4".
Here are some pictures from my travels, since I seem to be better at traveling than sewing!! ;-)
Check out these shoes we saw... Couldn't imagine walking on them, can you?
Do you like orchids? Check out these colors!
Ever seen turtles looking like this?
My friend and I went hiking and found this very secluded rock waterfall
Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday; it's when I have all my kids together in one place! This year we also had my brother visiting, which was a treat. I hadn't seen him in several years.
Here is a fabulous shot (I think) of me with 3 of my 4 grandchildren.
And here are my 3 adults (well, mostly) kids with their two spouses:
My two daughters are the left and center girls in black; my son is back right in blue t-shirt. My daughter's husband is always joking around.
Lastly,fall has come to Northern California. I love the fall colors and have many trees that change colors! This is one of my favorites, a Japanese Maple, by my front porch!
Not to be gathering moss around my feet, my dh and I are leaving tonight on a two week bucket-list trip... I'll try to post some pictures and definitely leave some clues for you to figure out my whereabouts. Let me start out by saying that it's about a 13 hr flight! And I'm not going to Paris.
Hope you all had a fabulous Thanksgiving. We do have so much to be thankful for, regardless of our station in life.
