Critters Inside and out

Out in the backyard, Grandpa T is relaxing under the BBQ.

Here's the owl my pet sitter suggested, to scare the crows away.

Ginger nearby, comfortable both indoor and out.

Ginger likes hanging out with Matilda, too, indoors.

I am working on a quilt, which I am keeping under wraps for now. I am also putting finishing touches on award ribbons for my guild's upcoming quilt show.

The Cardiff Kook

Seen on a visit to Cardiff by the sea this weekend. He is usually wearing something wacky.

Arlington Garden

Today I went to Arlington Garden in Pasadena with friends, on the way to the Norton Simon Museum. It was a delight for the senses, despite the heat. Here are some random shots.

Summertime fun!

Here are some cute photos of my granddaughter Sammy at the beach in Rhode Island.

An Exquisite Moment in Long Beach

I am in front of my quilt, "Grocery Shopping with Sammy," in Long Beach.

Heart strings at long beach

I was surprised to find a quilt based on my pattern, "Heart Strings," on display at the Long Beach Quilt festival. They gave me credit on the placard, yay! An image of the photo even appeared in the show's program.
  My version of this quilt was in Quilters Newsletter (I think it was in 2005?) as a pattern, and a few years later it became available as a pattern from Jukebox. It is still available and can be ordered from the Jukebox website.
