Day 7 of Pick Four blog hop

Hello and welcome to day 7 of our tour.  Wasn't it lovely to have a bit of a lie-in this morning?  The last 2 mornings we have had to get up sooo early.
Today we're off to visit Lynn from Sew'n Wild Oaks.  Lynn is not at home this week, so we're off to visit her in her holiday location of Calaveras County, where she is enjoying some time with her family.  Lynn is also a very talented quilter and designer but for today she has a copy of my book to give away to one of you.  Since I don't know this area, here is what Lynn has told me about the area:

  • Arnold is located in Calaveras County.    The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County made famous by Mark Twain. (By the way, Calaveras means skulls in Spanish!)
  • We are located in the spectacular Sierra Nevada mountain range, between Lake Tahoe and Yosemite.
  • Bears and mountain lions wander through our property.....we are too old, and too tough to eat!  But I'm afraid we are also slow.
  • You will need a sweater as the evenings and early mornings are getting a bit brisk giving the leaves a bit of Fall color.

Oh yes, and she did also mention that they really had a mountain lion wandering through their property last week - twice!
 OK, we've arrived now, so just let me remind you about the tour itinerary before you rush off to enjoy yourself with Lynn.


    1. Thanks Sue
      I love the snippets of information you give us about each stop!

    2. We're all going to be singing Beatles songs for the rest of the day. Thanks, that post was fun.

    3. I'm so glad you are doing a blog hop. It would be great to win your book, but I also so enjoy getting to find some nice blogs
