Spring out!

Wow...I just realized its been a really long time between posts.  I have a new computer so maybe this will help.

Here is the last 1 1/2 years in a bucket!  I still love Oregon.  Still love the rain, and yes we got a bit of it this year!  Have joined a local quilt group and made some really nice new friends!  Shout out to Busy Bees, Whoop!  

Love our house our yard.  So much so that I'm starting to garden.  My daffys did not poke through yet but the tulips are amazing, they really want to come up!  More pics to come.

Changed positions at my company KETIV Technologies and am enjoying the new challenges.  I am now the Customer Experience Manager and manage a great team of technical specialists.  Less travel and lots of what I love which is problem solving.

What about Quilting?
I will share some of the projects I've made over the last year and half over the next new posts.  I'll try to post weekly, so hold me to it ;]

The funny thing is that I have a tech background and I have yet to find a good way to get my photos from my phone and nice new cannon camera to my computer to make them readily available to post on my blog.  Lame excuse, but what is everyone using these days?  

I just did an applique workshop for my Busy Bees group last week.  I made up this little sample.  It was fun and several of the people gave it a whirl.  Can't wait to see their finish projects.  Here's my sample.

Why does this bunny remind me of my puppy Dudley?

Speaking of which, this is my love Dudley.  He is such a good pal and follows me everywhere.  Except when Pete is home, then he follows Pete. lol.

Its a hard knock life for us...

No really? Life is good!

My mom is coming for a visit from Lake Shastina this weekend.  She is going to do a workshop on thread painting at my Busy Bees meeting in Clackamas, OR.  I'll share pics when I have them.

I hope you get a chance to sew this week.

Love Aunti Nicole


  1. The bunny and Dudley are so handsome!

    1. Yeah Dudley is a charmer. He is currently trying to put a wet duck on my lap ;P

  2. Such a cute puppy! And I sure miss tulips in the yard in So Cal. Glad to see your back. 😄

    1. Hi Maryann! So nice to see your smiling face! I hope you are having fun with your grandbaby (who has to be 3 now?) What happening with you?


I would love to hear from you
