I have been working hard on my newest quilt. I am machine quilting it and adding a bit more hand embroidery, too. I'm not supposed to show it or talk about it in specifics. I can eventually. In the meantime, it's coming along. It's an exhilarating feeling to see the final stages.

They live next to a nature preserve. They have views of this fabulous oak tree from their house.

The next night we stayed in Yountville, where I did an artful tour along the maim drag. This unassuming building you see above is the world famous French Laundry restaurant. We were lucky enough to eat there once, maybe 10 years ago, with my dear Aunt Jean. She died a year ago December. She was fun, unflaggingly cheerful and upbeat. I thought she was the least likely person to get Alzheimer's, but alas, she did. Through it all she was still sweet and good natured to us.
Cool little "mushroom" garden.

I brought the background of my newest work in progress, an art quilt, and I did handwork on it every night.
