This is the fabric I'm using for my next quilt project, that I promise I will finish. It makes a 79" x 79" quilt top. That's all I'm going to say about it until I post a picture of the finished quilt top.
It's still raining here and I think I need to build an ark. I haven't been out of the house today to take pictures so I thought I would post one that was taken on a good day. This is a reminder of why we need the rain and to quit complaining. This is the Glory Hole at Lake Berryessa. When the lake is full, the water is covering the round cement tube that goes down into Putah Creek. Excess water flows over the top like a bathtub drain and flows into the creek. It hasn't done that in a couple of years.
You will notice that I missed a day or two. It's hard to take outdoor pictures when you are being drowned. We are entering our 5th consecutive day of rain. All I can say is I know we need it, but not all at once.
I'm posting these together to get caught up. This is my grandmothers' cedar chest that my grandfather made with his own two hands. He made it as a wedding gift in 1940 for Grandma. He was a finish carpenter and took great pride in his work. He would be appalled at some of the construction being done in homes today. Check out the inlaid work on the top of the chest.
This was supposed to be my pineapple upside down cake but since I had a flipping accident, I decided to post this old picture of me, my sister and brother. I'm probably 5 in this picture, which would make my sister 3 and my brother almost 1. Aren't we cute?
This is a picture of a quilt that was made with the blocks from our block of the month in Vacaville. When I get the money, I will probably buy the rest of the fabric to make this quilt. I have to finish the blocks first though.
This is Lucky. He is one of two boxers that we adopted two years ago from NorCal Boxer Rescue. He loves kids as long as they don't set foot in my house. :( He sucks up as much love as he can get and is a pretty good dog.
These are Mandarin Oranges on my tree out back. They are lovely to look at, but they are the worst oranges I've ever tasted. We had a hard freeze a couple of weeks ago and I don't know if that's what did it, but they are very bitter.
Can I do it? I'm hoping the discipline of taking a photo a day will spill over into giving me discipline in other areas of my life. This is not about becoming a world class photographer but about learning how to take better pictures and enjoying a hobby that I've always wanted to pursue. Here is Day One:
