Welcome Chookyblue

Did you hear, Donna from Chookyblue is doing a virtual blog tour. It seems that Chookyblue went on a real trip and helped (forced?) some of her friends to get out their ufo's and work on them. After reading some of her friends comments in the aftermath of her visits a clever person suggested that she come to all of our houses and help (make) us finish our ufo's.
So Donna when you get to Cary, North Carolina http://www.townofcary.org/New_to_Cary_/About_Cary_272.htm (voted one of the best small cities 2006 and the best place to live 2004 by Money Magazine). You may think it's a bit on the boring side. And you'll be right. But it's a good boring - a nice town and a good place to raise a family. If we want more excitement we can go into Raleigh or Durham.

When you first arrive at my house

We can sit for a while and discuss our plans

my mother's antique sampler hangs in my kitchen, we'll have a glass (or several of sweet tea)

Every morning starts with a 4 mile walk here. I spend a lot of time watching the wildlife while I walk and listening to my ipod, but I'll unplug and we can chat.




After the walk, back home to work on my ufo pile - yes please I'd could use a bit of help and some focus.
Next I think we need to go shopping first it's off to Joann's a big chain store but they have some cute fabric, then on to the local quilt shops we have several here. One of my favorite's www.plainandsimplequiltshop.net just had a big honor this shop will be featured in the May 11th issue of American Patchwork and Quilting Quilt Sampler edition.
My other favorite - very sweet and welcoming - I've been going here for years.

There are more farther out in Raleigh but these two are my favorites.



The cat, the dog, the kids - you'll need to go somewhere quiet after my house.

Hey Lyn! Thanks for sharing a bit of your little corner of the world. I think it would take me quite a while to walk that four miles - not only am I unfit, but there looks like there is SOOOOO much to see that it would slow me down! :0) Good luck with those UFO's!! Bear Hugs! KRIS

Great tour. What a great place to walk. How exciting for Plain and Simple. I will have to look for the magazine.

This was such a nice post. Thanks for sharing it. You have beautiful children! You are so lucky to have such a gorgeous area to walk everyday. I would be right there with you if I lived closer. :) Then back for that sweet tea and some UFO tackling. :)
