Loren got a new laptop upon retiring and I'm going to give it a try today. Sure is different from our old computer. Very excellent.

We returned from our camping trip to the Oregon beach and up the Washington coast to Port Angeles and Port Townsend and then down to Oregon again. It was a nice time away. I'll included a few pictures if I can figure out how to do it.

whoopee!!! There is Sharons' cute Christmas project.

Cindy combines her ideas and some of Sue Spargos' and came up with this great quilt. She is amazing.

Susan P has finished the top of this quilt that has turned out to be quite popular. It has a wonderful background and beautiful applique.

I've been making Nora a kitty face quilt and with left over fabric I am making a doll quilt. At this stage I had just a few rows left to do.

Another of those beautiful quilts in process.

Getting ready for my favorite season.

We had a great time. 30+  people came to feast on his smoky pork sliders, chicken, oysters and hot dogs. Everyone brought delicious salads and desserts and we feasted the day away. It is nice for him to be finally finished working.

Enjoy your summer and I'll write more when we get back.
