This and That

I was blessed to have my son, and his family, visit for their spring break.  I had to work, but we managed some time together.

One of the things that we did, was to take a little walk around Old Marcus

Every year, Lake Roosevelt is drawn down, and reveals the old site.  One can see the crumbling town foundations that are normally under water.

My granddaughter has a little sewing project going when she visits.

Alyssa's Kitty Cushion

The kitty will become a cushion, but it is slow progress since we don’t live close to each other.

The family has gone back home, and I have spent the morning making small design boards.  This small project has been on my to-do list for a long time.

Mini Design Boards

I used pieces of scrap foam core and batting to make mine.

They range from 9″ to 15″ square.

Mini Design Boards

I used the tutorial from Bee in my Bonnet.  These are useful little boards!

A Walk on the Beach

The spring afternoons have been so beautiful!  Hubby and I took advantage and went for a walk on the beach. 

I thought I would share a little bit of that walk with you.

The willows are coming out of dormancy.

That’s me.  Hubby thought you should have some perspective.  Those willows are big!

This driftwood looks like snakeskin!  This is great texture inspiration for free motion quilting!


A gorgeous afternoon!  Just look at that blue sky!


Someone built a home in the willows.


Probably not whoever made these tracks!


The crocus weren’t at the beach.  They greeted us when we came home!

The boys greeted us too.  Four cats wanted some attention.

Here’s one of them:
