The 4th here in Oregon was marvelous. Warm without being hot and because it was a weekday, my neighbors were tamer than usual but still fun and sparkly. Our HOAs tendency towards overkill is kinda taxing and I bet the kids had more fun just playing rather than structured games, bouncey house, etc...
Its been a busy couple of weeks off line. I've had classes to teach, quilts to mail and customers with quilts to quilt. So that's what I've been doing. Plus I've had a chance to catch up with off line friends.
Its been really great.
Can you believe this sunset?? right outside my front door as DH made a bike rack for the truck.
Only it was so much prettier than the photo. trees in the breeze. laughter.
I've been able to have a bit of time to contemplate my next years quilts and just hang out with family which is nice. We have a series of ongoing elder care issues going, changes happening and decisions to be made. Its nice to have great weather and happy times while we can.
I'm preparing to go to Sisters Oregon Quilt Show. I'm staying in a house with several of my Guild Friends. I'm sure it will be low key, relaxing, no drama weekend. I've taken steps to make sure I don't get
Then, just a short 2 weeks after Sisters, Denyse Schmidt is coming to teach at PNCA. more fun.
