Sunny May Day

We recently bought a Motor Home. I've named her "Tillie" after my maternal grandmother! Hopefully, one of these days we will go on a long trip but for now we are doing short weekend trips to get in practice.

We went to the beach for one weekend and then we went to Champoeg Park last weekend. As you can see, it was sunny at the beach...not so last weekend! One must get accustomed to camping in all weather. We had the dogs in a pen for a while and they were not impressed.


The class schedule for the next couple of weeks is as follows:

Tomorrow Thursday May 19 is Open Sew from 10-4 lunch included.....we are having African peanut chicken soup for lunch

****ALSO for tomorrow we have a treat. Nancy Friesen is coming in the afternoon to show us her new pattern

She will have some kits and patterns available. It is a little quilt that fits on a stand that is sold by Target.

Saturday May 21 is Open Sew from 10-4

Sunday May 22 is Open Sew from 11-4

Monday May 23 Open Sew from 10-4

Wednesday May 25 Open Sew from 10-4

and Saturday May 28 is Spargonian/Open Sew from 10-4


Here are some of the projects that we are working on:

So many projects and so much inspiration. Please join us and share your creations.

May 4th

I hadn't realized it had been a month since I wrote! Tune flies when you live such a fun life!

I have lots of pictures to show you. Pictures of so many outstanding projects. You may notice a theme going on of WOOL, lovely Wool!

First some wool that I dyed this week.

Fun to do.

This is a Maggie Bonanomi design done by Judy.

Another Maggie design also being done by Judy

MaryAnn did something nice for Sharon and Sharon made her this lovely quilt.

Now I have forgotten who is doing this. So Sorry.

Marlene has been working on this amazing pieced quilt.

Karla is creating this cuteness from the Primitive Quilts and Projects magazine

Sharon is getting ready for a season coming sooner than we think!

Cindy is working on Sue Spargo Cups!

Marcie is doing beautiful cross stitch

Not a snow bird but a Sue Bird done by Barbara

Nancy Friensen found this cute holder on and it has a blackboard on the other side.
Perfect for a very small quilt that I did.

Susan made this Kindred Spirit pattern some time ago. It truly is timeless and I may have to make one for myself.

Susan put this Maggie design together in record time. It is dimensional with floating flowers.

I love Carol's Pumpkin!

Karla's rabbit is a Rebekah L Smith design.
