Flower Arranging by Robin

When I walked into the store March 10 , these flowers catch my eye. I brought them home and arranged them. It really brightened my day.

These flowers caught my eye while I was at Costco today. I brought them home and had fun arranging them in this vase. I am enjoying these colorful flowers.

A Big Turn on the Quilt

Just turned the quilt again. Notice the little whit strip on the edge. That means the end on this side of the quilt is just around the corner literally. That is so exciting!

Quilt Update

I haven't posted a picture for awhile so I thought I would put one up tonight. I have rolled the quilt 3 times. I am most of the way across and could still do another row before I roll it again.

Quilt Progress

I have just rolled the quilt for the third time. I have been working on it for 4 weeks now and have tracked my time. I get more done when I am listening to something rather than watching tv. I have worked on the quilt for 35 hours and 20 minutes so far.

A Fun Saturday in the Back Country

On Saturday March 3, 2012 we went for a ride up the 5 freeway to the Lockwood Valley highway. It was a beautiful day. It was really warm also. Here are a few pictures of the day.

We remembered the beach chairs. Jeff sat there and just plinked away for more than an hour.I sat in the shade of the Jeep knitting with my big earphones on and my music going while Jeffrey did his target practice. I was able to balance everything on my lap and chair. There is a cup-holder at the end of the arm chair. The bottom of the cone in the yarn fit in it just perfectly so that it would not fall off into the dirt. I was really set.

I had packed us a dinner. We sat down and eat just before we left to start home. There were some kids (age 25ish) up there riding motor bikes and shooting a little too. They were kind enough to take this picture. We went the rest of the way across to Ojai, then down the 101 home.There isn't much room in the back of the Jeep. It all barely fit in there. Jeffrey finished off another bowling pin. He still has quite a few. They are still his favorite targets.
It was a fun day. The weather was beautiful. It was fun to be out in nature together enjoying the things we like to do.

Almost the same

I added up the time I spent on the quilt last week. There were 2 days I didn't do anything. When I was done adding it up there was only about 15 minutes difference between the weeks. 8 hours and 24 minutes and 8 hours and 15 minutes. I have gone 1/2 the width of the quilt and am headed back to the middle.
