Welcome Home, a Goodbye, and a New Plan!


Tuesday before New Years my beloved was scheduled to come home from NY (Long Island- nissaquoge(sp?) St James) It snowed like crazy. I am from Southern California, that means it is unsafe for everyone for me to be driving in the snow. period. unsafe. I called a couple of vans to see if I could get him a ride home and - Hello? they laughed at me!
I called my super snow driving girlfriend from Alaska, she said I could do it but I needed to leave early and drive slow.

Midway thru my drive I decided I needed to apply a little Voo Doo to the situation. So I skipped getting on the 5 and went thru downtown. Pit stop.

They claim magic in the hole ... So I got a lot of holes in the form of a fruit loop covered glazed and a cup of tea! It worked! I sailed down Sandy to the 86 and was at the airport in short order.
My Beloved drove us home and it was completely clear! Voo DOO!


New Years Eve Day we all piled in the car to run errands downtown. We lunched at La Buca on the eastside, Hit the museum, and pitstopped at Papa Haydons on the way home.

Here is a photo from inside the museum ... fresh, modern Amish anyone? I'm thinking on it. Doubting I will go solid though...
So, one of my favorite blogs is Crazy Mom Quilts. On New Years Amanda Jean announced that she was quitting her blog. I totally understand, but she will be missed.

Oh Fransson! also one of my favs has cut way back her blogging. I hope they got book deals and are finally going to make money and be famous! Or had babies and are now busy. Either way I will miss reading their posts and even though I generally lurk and not participate, I feel very friendly towards them, so its a bummer for me and I will miss them. * Tearful Wave from Rail platform with hanky - music swells*
So whats in store over here at Chez 2nd Ave? I too will be cutting back my blogging to once or twice a month, which may turn out to be just once a month. I still will be doing Give a Kid a Quilt, and in general quilting as usual. I also will be sewing more this year in general. Most of it will go to Charity but a bit will be next years Christmas presents and I few in mind as keepers for me. I'd like a new lap. :)
Quilters Rock!

Oh Fransson did take a hiatus but has returned to the blogging world. She started a quilt along just today. Take a look at her blog, looks like fun!

I love the tonal blocks. I'm behind on my blog reading and didn't know about my faves. My own blogging has been sparse but maybe we'll all find our breath and a comfortable pace in the new year.

Well... I'll look forward to a super fantastic post from you once or twice a month- and to seeing your "show at tell" at our quilt guild meetings. Your quilts always make me go, "OOOOoooooooo".

I understand. It takes time to blog. I don't think that's what they mean by magic in the hole...I sadly like the bacon donuts there.
