Great fishing, great weather and great family times.

 This week is going to be the perfect time to find
a chair to relax in under a shade tree.
Only 8 more weeks or so until cooler weather,

Golden Glow

 Golden Lilies and Golden leaves.
The art quilt Golden Glow is headed to Grand Rapids.
If you go to the AQS show look for it.
 Today is my annual check up and a trip
to the knee Doc for a shot to the knee.
Hopefully I will have 2 months pain free walking.
Have a great day.

Summer quilts

 What a peaceful week end.
Visiting cousin here with a lots to catch up on.
Very low key guest.
I wish they all could be like this.
Reading  and Relaxing.
 Now I finally think I can make some art.
My studio is clean so I need to mess it up again.
I have a show in August to prep for.
I need to make some pig art quilts.
My friend Lynn wants a long narrow quilt
with a crane on it.
Perfect weather to stay in working.
Supposed to be in the upper 90's.
Off to spend a day creating.

 Here I am back again with some flower photos.
 That is my life flowers, trees, fabric, quilting, and family.
Not a bad combination.
We have visitors from Minnesota this week end.
Nice to see them again.
I have signed up for a quilting retreat.
Maybe I will get myself back in the quilting mood.

I have been missing in action.

 I feel bad I haven't been blogging very faithfully.
My life is just so chaotic.
I am going to miss some big deadlines.
I have been in a art brain fog since we lost Mark.
 Now that the fog is lifting we seem to be busier
than ever. The gardens are blooming .
I am enjoying the colors so much.
I am thinking of abandoning the blog and just focusing
on FaceBook.
What so you think.

us out to the Farmhouse restaurant for supper.
To celebrate our Anniversary in May.
It was nice to hear all the new plans for
It was so nice. On the way home we got to see
the SUN SET. nice.
Today I will get the quest suite ready for company
on Monday. Getting it ready means finding a new
spot for the 12 inch layer of quilts on the bed.
I am excited. A visit from family and I
get to look at all those quilts again.
