A Weedy Update...or What Has Lucy Been Up To?

We are pleasantly settled in our new home
here in the "hinterlands" of Weed, California.
Our garage is beginning to actually resemble
a garage rather than a warehouse for immigrants.
Russell keeps busy with little projects and is very
happy to be here.
I have completed two baby quilt tops and I am
waiting for the weather to warm up enough so
that I can begin my vegetable garden.
Rumor has it that by May I will be able to do that!
Meanwhile here are a few new photos for you to look at!

Lucy surprised me by paying close attention to my sewing...

It still snows now and again, but nothing so serious
for us to even worry about. It usually melts by mid-day.

Here's the second baby quilt top I just finished.
Now to get it to the quilters!


  1. Lucy looks like a critical taskmaster.

  2. Such total concentration on Lucy's part. I'm sure she's a wonderful help. ;-)

  3. beautiful quilt. great red and rose colors.


I love comments and will attempt to reply to each one. However, lately I have been getting "Unknown" comments that are linked to some sort of web page. I will never open this sort of comment and will immediately mark as spam. I am not interested in opening something that could be detrimental to my blog security etc. Never have enjoyed hackers! Thanks!
