Happy Thanksgiving

We woke the other morning to snow. Since we moved here I have never seen snow on the beach. It was beautiful. It did not last for long but it was beautiful while it lasted. The photos do not do it justice but it was quite a wonderful thing.
I am anxiously awaiting my daughter's arrival. She traveled part way yesterday and will come the rest of the way home this morning. I hope her drive is a bit more relaxing today. She spent about 9 hours in traffic traveling from Seattle to Eugene, I feel very fortunate she is making this trip. Our son will not be with us this year since he is in Sweden. He has classes and research today. I am sure it will be strange for him and strange for us not to have him here.

I hope this morning finds you all of you with the ones you love. Happy Thanksgiving.

I apologize for my long absence. I have been a busy woman these days, I have started working, as in a real paying job. I am working 3 days a week. Now to many of you this may not sound like much but to me it is quite a change. I have been a stay at home mom for 23 years. That is a very long time to basically be self employed. :-) I loved being at home with my kids and since our youngest has been out of the house for 2 and a half years it was time. I think I am going to like my job quite a bit. I am doing a wide variety of things, mostly clerical. The people I am working with are very nice. It is a pleasure to go and spend time with such nice people.

My blogging and quilting may slow down for a while until I get my act together...

The photo in this was taken a couple of weeks ago on our trip home from Portland.

Here is the progress

I am having such a great time quilting squares. I love the way they look together. I am just going to keep going and we will see how it comes together. I have 5 colors of quilting thread I am using and I love the look.

I also won a book today, The Art of Manipulating Fabric by Colette Wolff I won it from Judy, of Judy in the Dyes
It looks like a great book, so who knows where that will take me.....

I hope all of you are well and having a great creative week!
