This and That

Can you believe that it is May already? I almost forgot to show you this month's "folk branches".....You are not seeing things...those are pumpkins. The quilt is all full of different shapes we love to see in folk art....no matter what month it is.

This is my granddaughter Alana. She turned 8 last week. She is the one that I made the butterfly pillows for. I took this when she and her family were up here visiting. When I am home in San Diego I get to see her every week, so I am really missing our visits.

I just had a visit from Deby who works at the Loft with me. Her daughter lives up here and so she stayed at my apartment during her visit. We spent a fun time at Hollyhill Quilt Shoppe in West Linn while her daughter was at work.

Next week I am off to Quilt Market in Salt Lake City. I am not going to have a booth, but I am meeting Sharon, Kathy (my sister), Colleen and Mindy from The Country Loft there and doing a little shopping for the store. (Kathy Cardiff from Cottage At Cardiff Farms, one of our teachers, will also be there showing off her new patterns in her booth) It will be fun to see some faces from home.

We had some good news a few weeks ago. "Ippy" has kept the tumors from growing and no new ones have shown up!!!!! Megan goes in about 4-5 weeks for another scan and thanks for keeping your prayers coming that it is still working then.

I have been designing several wool projects in the evenings. I sew while I watch movies on my laptop. :))) Hope you are finding some time to stitch too. My best......Jo Ann

I will toast to you and Megan with my next Gennesse!
