Hello All,

It's raining in Northern CA and snow! Thank God, Praise the Lord!!!

Loving putting this together. 

This is the cutest pillow top I am working on from Lori Holt's New Calender (Cozy Cottage) for 2016 
Now of course this pillow needs to be completed. But here is the top. Love it.

This is my block #3, I will get this started on Friday. I need to keep up with these through the holidays. I don't want to get behind.

The kitty Block #3 came with a Bonus Cat Pincushion..so sweet!

What are you up to?

Mom is doing better, and Steve goes back to work Thursday after his knee surgery. We are getting ready for the Thanksgiving and Christmas.
My shopping is done. I don't like the Christmas crowds.

Wonderful lighthouse photos and Redwoods in California. 

Have a wonderful Tuesday. God Bless!

Our Redwoods and Oregon Coast Camping Trip

Hello All,

Can you believe it will be Thanksgiving next Thursday! I can't believe it. It was just a hot, hot summer. Now it's cold and finally raining in Northern CA. I don't know about the weather in Southern CA.

We love going to Oregon, it's about an 8 hour drive from the Sacramento CA area.
We decided to go camping in the Redwoods of California in Trinidad CA and then into Oregon Brookings area. We went for 5 days. We had so much fun. We loved camping in our tiny trailer, so cozy. Our trip was in mid October. The weather was pretty good, but windy and sometimes a bit of rain, but it was fine. We loved our tip.

I wanted to post some photos of our trip. I hope I can meet some campers that blog soon. 

Some lighthouses we went to along the way of our trip 

One was in Trinidad California the little Memorial Lighthouse.

The second lighthouse was in Oregon, Cape Blanco 
It was so windy on the hilltop at Cape Blanco, Brrr!

Another photo of the redwoods driving through in the fall.

This last set of photos are from Oregon Camping Spot. Loved it Had our Own Deck in the Woods.

God Bless you and Happy Thanksgiving to All!

Perfectly Pieced = Block of the Month Block #2 - 3 More to go. Cute Cat Quilt, Thanksgiving Decor

It's time to be Thankful 

“Can you see the holiness in those things you take for granted–a paved road or a washing machine? If you concentrate on finding what is good in every situation, you will discover that your life will suddenly be filled with gratitude, a feeling that nurtures the soul.” 
— Rabbi Harold Kushner

These are some of my Thanksgiving Decorations. I don't decorate for Halloween, but I do for the rest of the holidays. I don't consider Halloween a Holiday either. 

This image looks small, I made it for my BOM Block of the month. See my page about this BOM. Loving making this quilt. 

Follow me on my Instagram or my Facebook, see links to the right of this page.

Time to share the recipe for Thanksgiving mix to share with your family and friends on Thanksgiving or at your church functions and gatherings.

My husband is healing and getting better each day after his surgery on his knee. Mom is still sick! I am worried about her very much. May God Heal My Mom!

Have a Happy Thanksgiving.

Happy Halloween! Beaded Swarovski Crystal Spider Necklace!

Oh my goodness...I can't believe I did not make one post in my blog the entire month of October until today.

My husband has had knee surgery this month, my moms been ill and we had a mini vacation in our tiny trailer. We went to the Redwoods here in Norcal, that is Northern California and then we crossed into Oregon and stayed in a wonderful campground there, of which I will keep top secret.

Now today I got up to do one thing and did another. LOL! well I got up as usual and was going to do one thing, but did another, lets put it that way.

I made this creepy spider beaded necklace, that is the thing I did not plan on making today at all. But I did, yes, yes, yes.

I got the directions for the spider at the link below.


Here is mine!

I updated my photos on November 1st to show what I Looked like all dressed up for Halloween. I only did it to wear this necklace and have my photo with the kids. I am not even into Halloween, but the boys and Kayla like to trick or treat. 

My husband took the above photo of me. I am holding my head so stiff because of the wig I have on. It is long, but it looked horrible on me. Steve thought I should leave it flowing, but I was to embarrassed to do that. It was awful. I've never wore black hair or dark hair, my was always white blond and eventually in my late 20's turned dishwater, that is what it is still. Boring.

Here is the kids and I. Kayla's friend is in the red, the rest is my family, Brandon on the left in all black, I have no idea what that is, Kayla in yellow, she is a freshman now, Kayla's friend in Red, me and my daughter Kirsten. She never dresses up either, but her step daughter Kayla wanted to paint up her face. Then there is Grammy's darling, Rylan, Ninja Turtle.  He is 4 years old this summer. My how time flies. 

I got the spider web tulle at Joann's for less than $7.00.

Have a Happy Halloween and a safe one!


Next I will talk about Diet, Vacation and my BOM, Block of the Month.
