Graduations and Babies ~~So Many Changes

Summer Days seem to be here and it has been so great. Not too hot and maybe a little rain tomorrow. Everything in my yard could sure use some natural watering.

We went to Sylvia's graduation last week and her party on Sunday. Monday she applied for a job in downtown Portland and now she and her mom are planning for their trip to Spain at the end of the month.

Loren's sister owns Natures Pet in Canby and we went to visit and pick up some treats. There is a nice park close by with a great path to take the dogs for a walk.








You can tell it was a beautiful day and perfect for a stroll with the dogs, although with them it isn't so much a stroll as a trot.

I had pictures of Loren and the dogs but it only wants to put them on sideways! Another time!

There was this really cool metal wall? Anyway I thought it would look great in our backyard, but as you will see, it is a little too large to take home.



Yeah, really cool but really big.

Monday was Girl Gang at Pioneer Quilts and we had such a good time stitching. Here are a few of the projects in progress....




These are the beginnings of the blocks in a book called Garden Club Quilts. Several of us are doing this quilt. Very summery.






Sara's up to her tiny hexagons again!






I would say that we have some really talented ladies in this group. Feel free to join us on the 2nd Monday of each month at 10:30.

And now for some updates on upcoming events.


There is a quilt show coming up in Sandy beginning on Thursday June 26 and it runs through Sat. the 28th. This is the last time there will be a quilt show in Sandy so please go visit. You will be glad you did.

My newest grandbaby is due July 1. I plan to go visit them after she arrives. Don't know when I will leave yet, depends on when the little one decides to come!

The Spargonians will be meeting on Saturday June 28 from 11:30-2:30 at Pioneer Quilts. In September we will begin meeting at my Studio. If you would like more information please email me:

If you have a group of ladies who like to sew together and need a place to meet please consider my studio. It can accommodate at least 8 at tables. You might like to come and see if it would suit your needs.

Also if you would like to teach a class you might like to do it at the Studio.

The Girl Gang class, Prairie Women's Sewing Circle and the Spargonians will be meeting at my home beginning in September.
It is a great loss for us to have Pioneer Quilts closing. Be sure and visit while you can. Stock up on fabric and tell them how much they will be missed.
