Just thought I'd check in and let you know I'm still here and plugging away on my Lucky Stars blocks. I've been carving out 30 minutes here and there in the mornings and evenings and it's amazing how much I've been able to accomplish in those little bits and pieces of time. I have all 20 blocks almost finished and hope to have a finished top by the time the weekend is over.

I probably won't be posting here but about once a week for a while. Mostly when I have something photoworthy that pertains to quilting. I've started 2 new blogs and will be moving most non quilt related posts to them. You will have to suffer thru the occasional gratuitious cat pictures but for the most part the focus of this blog will be quilting.

I've started a cooking and gardening blog. I started it because I wanted a place to talk about 2 of my other passions that don't fit the scope of this blog. And while it doesn't bother me to make an occasional off-topic post I really think I should keep this blog mostly on the topic of quilting as set up in the Stash Quilts Ring guidelines.

I find I need to really focus on my health right now and with that in mind I'll be growing a vegetable garden for the healthy veggies and as a way to get in some exercise. I'll also be posting what I'm eating there with recipes and updates on my health/weight issues. Again all things that just don't fit the scope of this blog.

I continue to carry my camera everywhere I go and the resulting photos will be posted on my photo blog. To give you an idea of what you can expect here's today's photo. This was taken this morning beside the driveway at work. I just love it when the bluebonnets bloom.

The flowers are beautiful! It felt like spring here in Minneapolis today. Keith and I walked downtown and had dinner sitting outside!

I hope you'll still show us the occasional off beat photo I have enjoyed a giggle over them
You take care of yourself.

Thanks for checking in. Your blog is always interesting to read. Sounds like you're on the right path health wise. I too need to make some decisions regarding my health. We have a vegetable garden that seems to get neglected by mid summer. Every year we've been so busy with projects/renovations that it gets left behind. Despite all that, it still seems to produce some wonderful treats. It would be nice if you put a link on your blog to your other blogs. Keep well and happy quilting!

Such stunning bluebells.

I love the cat pictures. Please keep sharing.

I can just see fish swimming around that quilt.
