Barn Quilts from Cat Patches

The only sewing I did yesterday was to hand sew the binding for Wyatt's World. Ms. Ears was my assistant for this endeavor.



We were planning to head out for a drive. There was a wine shipment to pick up, and we were going to take a Sunday drive on Tuesday to enjoy what might be the last of the sunshine we'll see in 2020. When we were ready to leave, I'd turned two corners, and was bearing down on the third.


Things are looking very "autumn" in our part of the world. We passed by a ...

Winchester Bay, Oregon from Cat Patches

We're back from our little getaway. We left Tuesday morning with our truck camper and ATV's and a sincere wish for an uneventful trip.


We were badly in need of some relaxation, and we definitely got that. When we arrive at a new place, the kitties always run to the windows to see where we are. Sadie spied some people and some woofies.


Smitty, do you think they can see us in here?


Maybe I should keep a low profile. What do you think?


Come look over here, Sadie. Birds!!!


Yes, indeed. This seagull was very interested in ...

Barn Raising III from Gray Barn Designs

Since I’m working on my barn quilt blocks, I thought I’d share some photos of barns in Ohio and New York. Here in Ohio, there are many barns that proudly display Ohio’s Bicentennial logo for the celebration in 2003.

The barn below is a bit weathered but we can still see it was part of the celebration.

Below are links to some other beautiful barns in Ohio and New York.

Of course I would be remiss if I didn’t include the “official” gray barn ...

Mask Mojo from ... Cat Patches

The weather has turned terrific. It has been so nice getting outside and working in the garden. Mike mowed the field yesterday, much to the consternation of the kitties. Here, Smitty can be seen praying for an end to the noise. It scares the squirrels away, and his mission in life is thwarted.



Sadie just wants to go back inside. That white smudge near her shoulder would indicate she's been rolling around where there is medicated body powder. The body powder was a hint I picked up from one of my friends (I forget who, but thank you) to ...

Sunday Drive on a Thursday from ... Cat Patches

There was no machine sewing yesterday. It was the first day I'd missed in about a month. The weather was too lovely to spend down in my basement sewing room. We had some things to do...grocery shopping, for one, which went off without a hitch. We were in and out pretty quickly. We visited the garden section of our local megamart while there, and found it well stocked with annuals and tomato cages. I needed the tomato cages for the peonies since I'm not a staking kind of gal. Now I'm kind of excited to get ...

Redding, California from ... Cat Patches

When I signed off yesterday, I didn't realize we were going to be well north of our location this morning. Here's what happened. Well...as you know, the weather was just terrible. It was even snowing. We were intrepid Oregonians though. We were going to see those last two gold rush towns if it killed us. And we were really brave, bold, and adventurous...until we got out on the road and realized the snow was coming down a little more threateningly than our stomachs could handle. Within one mile of the RV, we said in unison, "We ...

Angels Camp, California from ... Cat Patches

The past two days have been driving days, and we've covered a lot of mileage since leaving Desert Hot Springs. There was a rather dramatic sunset the last evening we were there as the clouds moved in for more rain.


As we were pulling out of the park on Thursday morning, a roadrunner ran across the road in front of us. I only caught him as he ran under one of the RV's. It's not a great picture, but I wanted you to see him anyway.


They are large birds, nearly as big as a small chicken ...

Happy New Year! from Cat Patches


Hey there, Everybody! Happy New Year! I didn't expect to be away from the blog for so long, but sometimes it works out that way. So I have lots to show and tell. Let's just back up to the day we left home, shall we?

It was wet and dark. Lots of RVers with similar predilections to us call themselves "Snowbirds." We don't get a lot of snow in our area, and so when it snows, it's more delightful than disturbing. Instead, we get a winter that looks just like the one you see below. Lots ...
