June, 2014: May was a very busy month of teaching. And one really fun weekend over the Memorial day. We always get together, my sisters and I, and make log cabin quilts.
Every Memorial day we make patriotic lap quilts for our service men to thank them for all they do for us. This year we decided to do the sewing up at our houseboat at Trinity Lake in Northern California. Wow what fun that was and it was a beautiful weekend.
We were very cozy as there is not a lot of room on a houseboat but we set up three sewing machines and one ironing station and had a generator that kept us going. They said it couldn’t be done but we did it. Here are the four tops that we completed in a day and a half hanging from the back of the house boat shot with a panoramic setting on my camera. I love the way they look in the sunshine. Now we just have to quilt them and get them to some deserving Veterans. Thank you all vets everywhere for keeping us safe and fighting for our country.
June starts out with a bang as I am headed out to Santa Barbara to participate in the wedding of my Niece Kristin to wonderful Rob. Should be lots of fun with lots of family. Then a few weeks at home working on a new quilt in my studio. With a class right here at home at the Santa Fe Quilt Shop on Working in a Series which should be fun and I get to go home each night. It is so nice to teach in your own town, no flights, no hotels, nothing but teaching. See more on that on my itinerary page.
My kitchen has been torn up for four weeks waiting for new granite countertops. It has been interesting doing the dishes in the only sink that we have hooked up which is in the laundry room!! But they should be installed the first week in June.
Enjoy your summer, and happy creating
love and hugs
