Catching Up......

We had a fabulous time in California.
The weather was perfect on the Central Coast.
Walking on the beach, getting my toes wet in the Pacific.

Spend time with our California boys.

Visited our favorite winery.....

Good friend, Peggy Sue (and baby Mia), joined us for a few days. 

Then we  headed to Las Vegas!
Where the family gathered to celebrate

  Dad's 80th Birthday.

We love ya Dad!

I must admit to buying a couple of CA lottery tickets, crossing my fingers,
wishing and hoping, thinking if I won, I'd just stay.

Back to reality....
I managed to complete the October Birdie block.
Won't be long and the quilt will be finished.

Love the spiders!

Tried a new recipe
from Taste of Home.
Bite Size Apple Pie

OMG, so easy and delicious!
I did change it up a bit.
I used brown sugar in place of white.
And peeled my Granny Smith apples.
Served warm.....mmm.... with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

I'm leaving you with a beautiful California sunset.


  1. Looks like you had a great time in CA....we used to live there, and it's so nice to visit every now and then. The October block is adorable, and I don't even like spiders! lol

    Thanks for the sounds wonderful!

  2. I wish I had my October block done....I'm still working on September....yours is adorable. I was busy for 6 weeks making projects for the Ghastlie blog hop. Now that it is behind me I have one more commitment before I start stitching again on my Little Miss Shabby birdie blocks. I'm making 6 blocks and 6 pillow cases for Johna'lee for her 'healing quilts' she is making. I noticed you follow her blog, sEw you are aware of the family tragedy. The 6 pillowcases are stitched and I have 2 more blocks to do....I want to get them in the mail by Monday. Come by for a visit and see my Ghastlie blog....still time to get in on my giveaway....(o: Pauline

  3. Forgot to mention a BIG THANK YOU for the 'Bite Size Apple Pies'.....I'm going quilting at the church on Saturday from 9 to 4:30.....these will be perfect for our pot luck lunch. Thanks bunches:o) Pauline
