Apologies; A Long time between posts..sorry


Actually it has been even longer that a long time between posts! At first I felt guilty for not posting … then after a while I almost forgot about blogging altogether … except for the many emails that I have received checking up to make sure we are OK. All has been well … just very, very busy … combined with a little blog overload.

 So, all is well, just unpacking and setting up a new household!

planting garden and that project went from one area to all around my house..no kidding! 


to be honest I haven’t done any quilting, I know,  just been so busy with moving and getting ready for the next school year and household stuff…ugh!

Missing my now so young baby….Image

Soooo proud of him, graduating, and enlisting into the US Marines, so he is officially a Poole, they have started training and is grilling, in a mom as opinion, but he Loves it!

So, as you saw above I’ve been busy making my renditions of garden art and canning blueberry n blackberry jam.  They turned out delicious!


so, I will be getting back into quilting, I’m actually going to the Long Beach quilt show next weekend, I’m really looking forward to it.



so,  what have you been up to? Let me know.  Happy creating! kris

Packing, loading, driving, moving!

My family life has been a little crazy, ok a lot crazy these past weeks. Sorry for the silence but life took over! We were packing, purging, prying toys from little hands etc. So were are now moved but our furniture hasn’t followed yet, so still in transit. Then drove like a crazy woman in a Suburban packed to the gills two young ones and all their stuff, my stuff and two dogs… oh boy was that ever fun….no….it was LONG!!! I’ve made the drove before, but I must have forgotten the real distance.

Anyways, we arrived safely and even did some sight seeing along the way! We stopped in Leadville, Co. to see the Tabor Opera house. Here are a few pics….

The Matchless Mine


Horace Tabor was my Grandmothers uncle

Anyways that’s a little family history!
