Nice Weather and More Quilts

 Yuma, Arizona          High 84 Low 52

We have had nice weather for the most part. It was windy a couple of days but has been fairly warm.

We got our second virus shot a week and a half ago. Hopefully we won't catch the virus. I really want things to get back to normal, that is no more masks or all the deaths from the virus. We both were tired and cold the evening we got the shot and didn't feel exactly right the next day, but the next morning we both were okay and haven't had any problems since.

We noticed that Penny had one of her eyes stuck shut and had to wash it out several times. During one of the washes, I got a small piece of dried leaf. She has been doing a lot better since we got the leaf out. I guess when your only 6 inches from the ground, the wind must have blown dirt and the piece of leaf into her eye. 

We went to a yard sale a while ago and Cindy was able to get two bags stuffed with scrap material for a dollar each. At the same yard sale, actually an estate sale, there was a brand new Accuquilt Go with several long dies. They normally sell for about $400.00 for the Go and the dies we got sale for about $100 dollars each. There were four dies. We haven't bought one because of the price, but Cindy asked how much they wanted and was told $10.00. Sold! Since, we have made some squares with it, and it sure makes it a lot easier to cut out the squares. Cindy says I seem to have taken over the machine. It is a hand operated model, but I really like using it.

This is one of the blocks we made using it.

We are looking to go back to Utah around the first of April, but it will depend on the weather.

Cindy counted how many quilts she has made since we have been here and says seven. Pretty good considering we have only been here 2 1/2 months. 

Here are some of the finished quilts:

The first one was on an earlier post but without the outer border. 

Thanks for visiting.


  1. LOVE LOVE LOVE that aqua and white. You certainly are lucky at finding the deals!! Cindy, your quilts are FABULOUS!!! I wish I had your eye for design. As for Penny girl, poor little thing ... I'm glad you got the leaf out of her eye. Maybe you should CARRY her more so she won't be so close to ground level!!! LOL

  2. Glad you were able to help Penny out.
    Nice you were able to get such a good deal
    Love those Quilts. Looks like you'll be busy when you get Home.
