Quilts for my sister, Sherry

Since we went to Montana in 2007 I have been working on quilts for my sister Sherry, who hosted our stay and she and her husband, Paul, took us all over the area. It was great. I finally got the quilts finished and shipped off. If you see one you have pretty much seen the other. They will each fit a twin sized bed. Can you see the stars?

Fun in Weaverville

One thing our family looks forward to each year is the Lion Dance performed each Chinese New Year at the Joss House here in Weaverville. Local kids take part in the traditional "dance" and the community is very supportive of their efforts. I have pictures, but when I went to download them from my camera I found that my daughter, Sharon, had already downloaded them into my computer at home (I'm at the shop - high speed internet). Picture me gritting my teeth. I will have to put them on a disk and then bring them in to put them up.

How can it be 2009 already?

Yes, it has been almost a full year since my last post. My life is CRAZY! Working pretty much 8-12 hours a day 6 days a week. But . . . I love my life, my jobs, the shop, my family, my friends . . . it just doesn't leave me a lot of time for other stuff. Also, until we get high speed internet I won't be able to post a lot of pictures (I have a lot of pictures to post) because it takes about 20 minutes per picture to download onto my blog. Ugh. Soon I will be able to download those babies 1, 2, 3, done! Wahoo!

Ocean Views

Some other views on the way home.

On the Way Home

We accidentally got to see part of the Kinetic Sculpture Race as we passed through Ferndale on the way home Memorial Day.

Uncle Red

While in Ft. Bragg we visited with my uncle, Red Burke, who enjoys restoring old cars, scooters, and anything else mechanical that he takes a liking to. He is in his 90's now and still working each day at his home shop.

Ft. Bragg Quilt Show

Memorial Day weekend we traveled to Ft. Bragg, California, in Mendocino County, to a quilt show. It was held in three different buildings downtown and we met some very nice people during out stay there.
