Count Down

It is countdown time. I have a week to get all the camping stuff together and the food and the activities. I am as excited as a kid before Christmas. I am so looking forward to spending time with all the grown adult kids and the grand kids. I have tons of projects that I want to finish and grass to mow and weeds to pull and berrys to pick. OH MY!!
Well I did get a quilt done for a granddaughter that graduated. Jennifer made the top and back and I quilted and bound it. Done, Done, DONE!!! One less thing to have to do before we go. YEA!!!!!

I tried free motion flowers. They look like a kid did them but I was getting better by the end. PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT, RIGHT!!!!

Giveaway Winner and Farmers Market


Well I will take care of business first. The winner of the snap sack is Fiesta of Quilting Fiesta from Florida. Send me an email with your address and I will send you your complete kit in a sack.

One of my daughters lives in Starbuck WA which is close to Dayton WA and they had a car show this last weekend, so I went down Friday evening and Saturday my daughter and I along with a friend had a booth at the Farmers Market. I took my camera but forgot to take pictures. The market is in a perfect spot under the trees in the court yard of the historic railroad depot. Doesn't that look like a great place to spend the morning.



The Dayton Depot is the oldest surviving train depot in the state. It was originally built in 1881 and designed in the Stick/Eastlake style. The structure has been altered only slightly in over 125 years of its existence.The Depot Collection includes over 2,500 photographs from early settlement history that document county life from 1860-1950. They are all catalogued and available for research.
In addition, the Depot collects furniture from Baileysburg, Dayton's only furniture factory, memorabilia relating to local business and events, and objects and memorabilia from its Oregon Railroad and Navigation Co. and Union Pacific history. This is supplemented with clothing and artifacts from local pioneer families.
It has been beautifully restored and is now a museum. Revolving exhibits are featured in the upstairs gallery. The Dayton Depot is listed on the Local, State, and National Registers of Historic Places.
Location: 222 E. Commercial Street, Dayton, Washington

Patriot Stars Giveaway

What you say? It is a project in a brown paper bag, it comes with everything including the backing to make this 14" X 20" project. The picture is a sample but not the actual fabric in the kit. Isn't it the cutest thing?

I have these kits available on my store site if you would like to make one or give one to a friend, they are only $12.I think that I would like one of my lucky followers to have this kit. So for this give away just leave a comment on what you are going to be doing over the 4th of July. You can also have a second chance by being or becoming a follower.
We are going to be camping in Utah with all the kids and grandkids which may be up to 32 people give or take. . Each family is in charge of a meal and an activity. So far the activities sound like loads of fun and I think the kids will enjoy them. There is fishing and archery and of course fireworks. Maybe even some home made ice cream and it isn't camping without a little dutch oven cooking.I am getting excited for the fun to begin

Be Attitudes


My latest project is a quilt that Barb of Bejeweled Quilts appliqued  and I quilted it and did the binding and did the buttons. Don't you just love how whimsical it is? I love it because it is green. The back is the cutest green tone on tone fabric with butterflies. My quilting doesn't do it justice.
