Since the last posting

Good day to all!

As I sit here to write this, I realize that it's been way too long since I posted anything. So much has happened and I just keep "forgetting" to add to my blog page.

So, I will try to make this short and to the point.

My friend and I went to the Sisters' Outdoor quilt show in July. It's always the second Saturday in July. This year they celebrated their 37th year. We had a marvelous time until about 2pm. That's when the clouds really started to seriously roll in. By about 2:15pm we were feeling the occasional drip of rain. By 2:30pm we noticed that quilts were coming down (Show goes til 5pm). By 2:45pm it was raining and we decided to head for the car. By 3pm we were sitting in the car and had just shut the doors when the hail started. Yep, Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show had finally been cut short by rain! We were both soaking wet and just sat there waiting for the hail to stop and the rain to get lighter before heading out of town. Not an easy thing when everyone who had come to see the quilts was doing the same.

We stayed with a friend who lives a few miles out of Sisters so as to avoid the hotel bill. We had been working on a quilt for her and we gave it to her on our arrival at her house.
This is the top before we got it finished. Realized the other day we hadn't gotten a picture of it with our friend. It's called Gardening with Angels and is a block of the month pattern from Stitchin' Post in Sisters, OR. She bought it in 1998 and we put it together in 2012 for her. She loves it! And we are so glad.

I've been to a workshop, a wedding, a quilt retreat weekend with friends and of course, work. That pretty much catches you up and I'll try to do better at updating. Summer is just a very busy time for me and I tend to let some things go.

Take care and enjoy life.
