New Year, New Post

Well I guess it has been a while....  I haven't exactly been slacking off.  Just focusing on other things.  And I finally got a new computer so perhaps it will be easier to update my blog.  And I finally finished my number 1 nephew's quilt last year!  I'm still in the planning stages for number 2 nephew's quilt but in the meantime I've also gotten a new sewing machine.  I think I'm set for a while!

I also made a quilt for a friend I hadn't seen in a long time.  I finished it in a fraction of the time it took me to finish the quilt above but then it's not quite as complex.  Or large.  It gets the job done...

Spring, Glorious Spring

So we pretty much sped through Fall and skipped over Winter and got smacked upside the nose with Spring in all her Southern glory!  I've been out and about with my little SLR snapping away lest we should get 2' of snow when we're not looking....

Fall Color in Virginia

OK, trying again to see if posting the photos works.  Apparently it did work before but I can't see anything when I'm using Firefox which seems a bit silly.

So again with the photos from Monument Ave plus a couple I took down at the rivah.

WOOOOOHOOOO!  It works now!

Fall in the City of the Monuments

Well...  I was going to update my blog with all sorts of swell pics I took this past weekend but Blogger is not being very cooperative.  The pics are all over at Flickr and I think for the foreseeable future, that's just where everything is going.

Yorktown Onions

Finally managed to get down to Yorktown when the onions were in bloom.  Legend has it the onion seeds spilled off the wagon as they were transported from ships docked in Yorktown to the market in Williamsburg.  This particular onion is a old European variety and this is the only place it now grows.  I think the color combo with the grass, the sky and the York river is heavenly.

Just playing around with Polyvore -- it's so nice to have just the right images at your fingertips.
