Clay wrote a nice blog post comparing and contrasting our analog travel journal system and the digital journaling that he (and we) do today. Check out his Exitcreative blog

Collaborative Quilt Progression

Collaborative Quilt Progression

Posted 06 March 2010 | By | Categories: Donna, Fiber Arts, Friends | 11 Comments

My friend, Edith Harmer, and I have generated collaborative quilt projects in the past…collaborative in that a group of quilters come together to create one fiber piece.  Last year we worked on a close-up of a rose.  Four quilters created four segments of the rose photograph, we exchanged our quadrants and then pieced those four [...]

Best Deal in the History of the World

Best Deal in the History of the World

That may be a bit much…but just a bit. This morning we had breakfast in Trinidad (the town north of us, not the Caribbean) and then walked the head.  Donna will have a post up later…she took some videos with seals barking, surf crashing, bell buoys ringing…and on the way back home we decided to stop in [...]

Daffodils Along My Ride and a Woodsworth Poem from 1804

Daffodils Along My Ride and a Woodsworth Poem from 1804

Posted 21 February 2010 | By | Categories: Donna, Scenery | 5 Comments

I WANDER’D lonely as a cloud That floats on high o’er vales and hills, When all at once I saw a crowd, A host, of golden daffodils; Beside the lake, beneath the trees, Fluttering and dancing in the breeze. Continuous as the stars that shine And twinkle on the Milky Way, They stretch’d in never-ending [...]

Saturday Morning Brex @ Los Bagels

Saturday Morning Brex @ Los Bagels

Posted 20 February 2010 | By | Categories: Donna, Food | 6 Comments

We just can’t help ourselves…we’ve gotten into the habit of having breakfast each Saturday morning at perhaps the best and most consistent eatery in town — Los Bagels.    Durry is enamored with the jalapeno bagel with their egg salad and seems to be stuck in the egg salad rut.    I attempt to vary my Saturday [...]

On the Road Again…

The next few weeks promise to be quite exciting.  There are two trips in the offing that’ll give us the opportunity to test our traveling and posting skills. This weekend…tomorrow actually…I’ve got the Society’s annual luncheon.  That has nothing to do with any of this but starts the special-ness of this next month. Next weekend, [...]

Technical Nightmare

Technical Nightmare

I had a nice idea.  Make a red and green quilt.  Make two large circles with lots of tiny pieces.  The complimentary red and green will visually help the circles to “vibrate”.  All’s well,and no, these are not Christmas Tree skirts. Back in August I didn’t really know where the design was going…. The fabric [...]

When it doesn’t rain….

We are finally receiving some much needed rain.  Last year we had something like13 inches of rain with normal being perhaps 25.  Those of us who use the streets and trails for exercise got rather spoiled by not having the rain to hamper our outings.  I normally take a long ride on Sundays…22 round trip [...]

It’s nice that Durry will wear hand knit socks that are intentionally mismatched.

When it rains on a Monday, you can find us inside….getting stuff done.  Durry has spent the day at his computer researching the Watts family in Kentucky in the 1820′s and ’30s.  My day was spent correcting lots of technical errors on a quilt I have been struggling with since August.  Perhaps by the end [...]
