A Busy October!

Wednesday, November 06, 2019

Between DH's physical therapy, and dr visits for both of us, I finally sat down and caught up on photos, and then compiled a blog. Whew! Busy, colorful, and still having fun despite the off and on rain and weather turning cold!


And this is Dad's hat at his favorite eatery, the Bagelry.

Plus friendly but shy deer!

Add in a quilt show, and lots of friends!

    Through your blog I really got to know Bellingham. Then while traveling through Alaska, every museum and tourist office had a beautiful color brochure to VISIT Bellingham!

    Thanks for reading my anniversary blog.

    Check out my website at for "Where in the World are Eileen & Joe"

    Finally, our long planned visit to Easter Island will be for 6 days in Feb during the Tapati Rapa Nui festival..
    Our trip begins in Santiago on Feb 4th and ends after a cruise around the cape to Buenos Ares on Feb 29th.

    I can only repeat what the commenter of your blog wrote: thank you for sharing so much beauty.

    Food for my soul .

    Incredible pictures, and the quilts were fantastic. My favourites were the Klimt and the homestead.

    Like some others, I’m waiting to see where you’re off to next.

    Morticia, the bagels aren't as big as they look - my camera does a fisheye thing close up, so the bagels look huge. They're actually about 3 1/2 inches in diameter (about 250 calories per bagel). These were DH's bagels, though - I usually eat a bialy, which is about 180 calories because it isn't as dense.

    Wow!! Such a splendid exuberant blog!! Worth waiting for . . . so much pent up energy and joy!!

    Love your leaves -- I think I see quite a lot of Japanese maple!!

    And the quilts are unbelievable. The college where I taught art history had a terrific fabrics department so I have some appreciation of "art quilts" but these are remarkable, each and every one. Hours could be spent contemplating and enjoying the individual artistry. That fire fringe around the dragon is so inspired -- and the Klimt compendium too -- and that marvellous landscape with the small wooden house. And the zinnias and cosmos . . . STUNNING!!!

    Looking forward to hearing more about your travel plans and wardrobe decisions. Quite truthfully it occurs to me that in this journey of life I shouldn't need more than 25 pieces or so . . . but yup, I have WAAAAAYYYYY more than that.

    Loved the pictures!

    Those bagels are huge! I would have trouble finishing one.

    I love to watch deer. There are places on our property where they deliver their babies and hide them. One of their favorite spots is behind a shed that is 10 feet from the house. They trust us with their babies. We sometimes hear the does in labor and hear the babies after they are born. The big bucks are here now looking for girls. They are very impressive and scary.

    We have oak, maple, and beech and a few others that show a lot of color, like dogwoods and hickory. We have a burning bush.

    I love quilts. Everyone in my family quilted including my dad. Up until my generation, including me. They were hand quilters. I inherited some from a great aunt, paternal grandma, and from my mom. I like the new machine quilting and they show examples like this at the local museum but I prefer the old classics.

    SHIP is often helpful in picking out plans.

    Awesome appreciation here for this blog, especially the quilt pics and information. Some of these techniques are found in a pair of framed Molas I have which were made by some of the native peoples of Panama. I didn't make the trip myself but purchased these from a local person who tired of them on her walls.
