Frankie enjoys lounging on my quilts. This one I made of some Halloween fabric that I couldn't resist.

Halloween dolls

It's been a while since I've posted. I am working at Kaiser Oakland Hospital, in Oakland, California. We live nearby in Alameda, right next to the beach. My friend Mary took me on a tour of Oakland today, which was so nice. It helped me get a feel for the area. To me, one of the best things about traveling is getting to get the feel of a city. This whole area is really beautiful, and the weather is fantastic. Here are some photos of what I've been doing lately. I did some Halloween things. Now I'm playing with some mixed media collage, and I'll soon be gearing up for Christmas. The first photos are a Halloween doll done as a collaboration between my Dad and me. He made the head out of paperclay, and I painted it and made the body.
