Bye Bye June

Can you believe that half of the year is over already? The days just fly by and I can't do anything to slow them down.

I was able to attend Quilt Festival in Shipshewana, IN this month. Wonderful quilts and School House was fun, too. Saw Ricky Tims, Kaye England and Darlene Zimmerman just to drop a few names.

About 30 World War II quilts from the collection of Sue Reich were on display in Hostetler's Hudson Museum. This museum houses the largest collection in the world of early 1900 Hudson cars. The quilts were draped over the front of the cars.

The bakery in the Blue Gate had this cute Bee cake spinning on display. Too cute. We enjoyed a family style meal of chicken and roast beef with all the trimmings after a day of shopping and the quilt show.

On Friday, we attended School House. It felt like the first day in a new school as we looked for our rooms. There were many helpers in the hallways who knew the layout and were eager to assist.

Caught Up!

I have finally read all of the posts in my Bloglines! Some days it seemed I was getting more behind than when I started. There were over 2000 posts to read or delete. I couldn't delete. Sorry, the comments were very few and far between.

The past three week-ends we have attended two weddings and one graduation party. It's that time of year. Also managed three days at the June 'Sleep At Home' Retreat where I sewed months 7 & 8 of The Cotton Club strip quilt. Coloring in the photos is off on the second picture. At the April Retreat, four of us finished sewing a wall hanging for celebrating birthdays. We had them quilted at the same time and mine is now done.

The last quilt is the third little 12" quilt from Lori Smith. I loved making it.
