Dear Friends....where does the time go???? We got home from Grand Rapids and all the fun I had teaching to quilts piled up for me to do, and finally the rain....(note the photos I posted this time). Our fish are getting ready to go to sleep with the colder weather and water temp dropping. Soon the will get not a kernel of fish kibble till next May, or April if the weather warms up.
I will not miss my early morning trudge to the pasture to feed goats and alpacas, altho I do miss those little guys. It seems strange with no Tommy Boy running around....we miss him.....altho I took a peek at cats for adoption the other day. Nothing spoke to me. I think I want another black kitty again.
I have been quilting like mad for my customers, and working on about 4 of my own piecing projects...tomorrow is our Camano Island Quilt Retreat....and boy, do I have things to work on....including two projects from about 12-15 years ago...one from CT and one from when I first moved to WA. I want to get them finished some one of these days!!
I finally got my new little light weight Janome....it is great, and even has a thread cutter and lots of special stitches. I especially love the one double blanket stitch on it. I want it for teaching instead of carting around my 40 pound Bernina....it is feeling more like 400 pounds the older I get!
Well, when I get some of these projects finished I will post them on the blog. I just finished a couple of great ones from one of Freddy Moran's students...these are the collage type she has been teaching of late.
The last picture is the view out the window of the beautiful lodge building where I taught machine quilting for the Cama Beach Quilters on Camano Island. It was such a beautiful view in spite of the clouds and rain. The Pacific Northwest surely has a beauty of its own!
Well, hope you enjoyed the rainbows...much prettier in real life!
