Hello All,

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

Photos of my Purrfectly Pieced BOM Block #2. Will get started on this hopefully Friday.

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. 

 Be sure to check out my camping trip photos in previous post!
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.
