My orange-a-licious quilt....still have at least 3 more lonestars to make.

My orange-a-licious quilt...still have 3 more to make.
Liz Theaker's Wildflowers....Liz is director of the Quilt Museum.

HI does the time get away from me.?? I imagine you all are as busy as I am, so will understand that I have not written for way too long.

Since the last time, I have taught a couple classes, taken a great rope wrapped tote bag class, and worked on quilts and in the yard on the great pond project.

I taught some of the gals from the museum how to do collage quilts, and they came up with some really great "paintings". A few of us made a field trip to the La Conner Quilt Musueum and enjoyed the Hardware exhibit. The Japanese exhibit is next, and promises to be a stunner as always. They are masters at teeny tiny perfection.
Our neighbors have finally moved everything, including the cows, to Idaho. They had been letting their cows use our pasture for grazing....I will miss them, especially in the morning when they come mooing for oats when I feed the goats and alpacas. It was quite the trick getting those cows in the trailer for the move....they weren't having any of that! I couldn't even coax them with their favorite oats. The new neighbors will be coming soon. One is a doctor in town.

I had a big laugh last week when Curly, the suri alpaca decided to take a bath in our little mini-pond. It dries up in the summer, but the puddle is pretty sizeable in the rainy weather.

That is Curly in the picture posted, along with his pature mates. They all get along pretty well now, but Curly is the BOSS.
This weekend I am going to my brother's to try to sell some things at his garage sale...I hope I can get rid of some things that are still stored in our barn.
We are getting ready to form our stream between ponds so we can get the liner in and ready to try and pump our whole system in a circle with 2 waterfalls. It will be interesting to see if it works in real life as well as in my imagination.
Tomorrow we have a long-arm meeting in Everett....they are fun, and we share lots of great techniques and business ideas.

Oh, I finally finished my 9th lone star...Orange-a-licious...named by dear friend Stephanie Davis...well, gotta get going to finish a quilt and start one for Roberta Horton for the next Kaffe Fassett book....have a great day. We are supposed to have some sun today...still not here yet...Judy
