Wonderful Day




Yesterday was an art and joy filled day...I started out the day at the annual show put on by our local quilt guild, bought a few plants at the farmers market, beaded with a dear friend while gallery sitting and ended the day going up the river to have dinner with friends and watch the river traffic (several rafts, an inflatable catamaran and a beaver) as the fog slowly moved in at dusk. Perfect!
I bought a few scraps of eylet fabric for a song and a strand of the new chinese crystals, and finished the flowered piece. Oh, and froze the 12 lbs. of blueberries we picked on friday from our local (inland) blueberry farm...yum!
Oh...and here's a link to the wonderful image by dennis mcgregor that the quilt guild purchased. The ship's sails are all different quilt patterns and I' ve never seen a more compelling image for a quilt show on the coast!

What a wonderful image, seeing all of those quilt designs 'flying in the wind'. I had a similar experience yesterday going to a major craft show and then a quilt show. There were lots and lots of vendors at the quilt show and I had to drag myself out of there before I spent myself into oblivion!

Allegra sends her love, and thanks for your visits. She is still having trouble typing but I read her your comments and she is happy to hear from you. We are going back to OHSU
Wednesday and hopefully she will be able to visit soon. Many thanks from both of us, and have a great week.
Your photos are great, btw.

Hi Bobbi!!
Man, your day was packed!! Amazing how much we can fit into 24 hours when there is a lot to do, and how little you can do when there is no pressure!!
Glad your day was joyfull!!

Your flowered piece is just lovely, very stunning with the colored center in the black.
