Lap quilt I made for a good friends birthday

Sorry I just realized this is not allowing me to change the order of the pictures so it's a little backwards....sorry =o)
Close up of RV quilt
Back of Rovers quilt, it's called A River Runs Through Rover.
This is the quilt I made for our RV, it's the same pattern as Jakes quilt. I adored the SW horse print in the big squares and boarders so wanted to find a pattern where I could use big pieces of it.
This is the quilt top I made for Daniel, he requested batiks and 'circles' the binding will be the inner boarder fabric and the back the outer boarder. I think it looks pretty manly LOL

Here kitty, kitty

Each year I help a friend create a personalized calendar he then gives to his lovely wife for christmas. Previous year's themes have included Pirates of the Caribbean and weight lifters. This year he gave me a book of babies in kitty suits, I think it might be one of my favorites.

On the road

My dearest and I had a wonderful 17 day road trip vacation with our new 'puppy' Rover. We drove through parts of 6 states, multiple National Parks, and more gas stations than I care to count. We saw lizards and cranes, antelope and petroglyphs, cliff sides and natural wonders; met new friends, laughed with old and had our fill of 90' weather, atleast for awhile. We decided we like traveling in an RV even if it's a much slower pace and we like spending time with each other.

Newest project

One of my favorite people gave me some lovely vintage fabric so what better use for it than to make her a quilt from it. My second ever quilt, I love how it turned out.

We have had such a string of wonderful weather. Sunny days, warm but not too much over 80's. Blue skies, not much smog. Cooler nights with enough dew to keep the flowers happy. So you can imagine my surprise walking out of a store today to feel raindrops on my head. I have to admit to being startled, it took me a minute to figure out what was happening. I did get a good laugh out of it, even if it will spot my freshly washed car LOL

Green is the new blue

We have been trying to paint the outside of our house for the last 2 years. Last years bad weather caught up to us so we were left with a leper house for almost a year. This summer we tried again. So far most of the house has 1 coat of paint and much of it 2. Even some trim is completed. If the weather cooperates we might even finish it this year, just in time to start painting all over again. I love the green I picked but bugs also seem to love it, each day I walk outside to see them all over my freshly painted walls. Guess they have good taste too.

Our new puppy Rover

They say when peoples kids go off to college they get a new puppy. Well since the 'center of my life' has fur allergies we got an RV instead. Our colors are a little different but you get the picture. It used to belong to a friend who generously agreed to let us keep it at their house but we get to visit it when we want and will take our maiden voyage soon to Utah. Kind of like a cruise without all the water. Wagons-Ho...
