Quilts of 2010 ... Happy New Year!

As 2010 comes to a end I reflect on the great fun I had making these quilts ! My favorite quilt that is VERY close to my heart the the WINTER ROSE quilt that Doreen and I made together . My second favorite is the Maison Bleue quilt that I made of all Martinique fabric. I am already starting my list of quilts that I would like to complete in 2011. Sorry I have been MIA the last couple of weeks. We were busy with the baking and wrapping . Then I was sick in bed the week before christmas & thought I would not be able to have xmas with my family BUT I was feeling much better the thursday before xams YEAHHHHH!
Wishing you ALL a Happy New Year!

Christmas in San Francisco.......

San Francisco is SO beautiful at christmas time ! After my drs. appointment thursday we decided to drive over to Larkspur and take the ferry over to San Francisco. It was a beautiful day 58 degrees. We took the bus to Union Square and walked around. There is a street named Maiden LAne and I found the London clothing store that had 100's of Antique sewing machines in there window ! WOW! I could not believe my eyes. We had lunch a FUZIOS in the embarcadero and had calamari , crab cakes and paella. The first 2 pictures in inside the Hyatt Regency Hotel , isn't it just gorgeous ! There were 2 ice rinks. One in Union square and one at the embarcadero. What a wonderful day in the city ! Enjoy the picture I took !

Christmas Nature Wreath to Greet my Friends

I have this VERY large wreath hanging on my front porch right next to my front door and I decorate it for every holiday. This year I picked up some wonderful garland with birds, birdsnest and pinecones. I added my favorite little birdhouse on the bottom of the wreath.
We have been busy with the new concrete walkways we are having put in the backyard. The guy came yesterday and started preparing the walkwasy and building the forms. He was going to have the concrete pourde friday but we are expecting rain tonight. Oh well we are in no hurry.
