We finally received some snow last week ...
... it didn't stay long.  Mother Nature brought in a few huge coastal storms ... and rain washes the snow away.  That is the normal weather cycle here in our temperate rainforest.
High winds and sideways rain doesn't dampen a QBee's spirit!  We are weather resistant and know how to entertain ourselves!  I made Valentine themed cupcakes to celebrate QBee Val's birthday!
We celebrated by enjoying appetizers and cocktails with our cupcakes.  I look forward to our birthday gatherings ... a chance for us to relax and catch up with one another!
On Sunday, the guild sponsored a monthly Quilter's Anonymous meeting ... we celebrated Val's birthday there too!  QBee Diane made this beautiful cake.  I just love this picture of them ... I've spent 30 years quilting with these two women ... friendships I treasure.
Girlfriend DillyDally has taken to quilting like a fish takes to water ... love adding her to the rank of QBee ... makes my heart swell with happiness!
I have also been busy ... preparing to bind five quilts!  Uffda ... there is a lot of binding in my near future!  Two lap, two queen, and one king sized ... double uffda!  Wish me luck!  The QBees will be cheering me on while I tackle this daunting task!  QBees make the best personal cheerleaders!

Do what you love.  Be a cheerleader!  Do dillydally!

On Tuesday evening, we were gifted a brief break in the rain ... I just had to share this gorgeous sunset!  


  1. You really know how to make the best of winter up in your little corner of the world. Thanks for sharing your lovely sunset. I rarely get to see one and especially not one that stunning.

  2. Looks like you QBee's always have a reason to party. :)
    Great sunset pic.

  3. I so miss the sunsets in your remote corner of the world... thank you for sharing your beautiful images!
