Hello, Long Time no Blogging

I have had quite a year. We won't go in to the sordid details but I am back. So, what did you do all summer? I have been working on so many things here, don't know where to start really.

The Love Entwined quilt is still in its early stages but I have been working on it as often as possible
Here are a few pics of my progress (which has been slow) Yes, I do have the centre done but took it back out for now. Need to sew it down yet.


I found a really crazy crochet block pattern on pinterest and had to buy it to try it. It is made from the outside to the inside. Yep, and even after I bought the pattern, I did not see how it could work but it certainly did.
   
This is the starting row.

 And the whole thing is only 5 rows and it's done.
Here are the next steps and you can see how it kinda turns back in on itself and then you just pick up the loops and draw them all together. After, just stitch a row of dc's and your block is finished.

This year we had a very tiny and wonderful Thanksgiving. My son and grand daughter came over and we all had dinner at my mom's place. It was great !!

I realize that this is a bit of a mish mash of things here, but there is so much happened in the last 6 or 7 months. I am in an apartment with a balcony out front that overlooks the ocean. It is so beautiful here and even though I am on the wrong side of the highway, I still love it. See so many interesting things and the sound of the waves rocking in are great.

Not too far down the highway, we stopped and had a look at all the sea lions taking a break

















Also, had a wild storm here about 2 weeks ago and you can see that here.

A couple of other projects that I have on the go are these bom's from this year.
