Sisters Quilt Show Part Two
I left to teach for the Sisters Quilt Show last Monday and started teaching on Tuesday. I had four amazing classes during the week and finished up on Friday night. The Ponderosa Lodge where I was staying is almost a park-like setting with deer and loads of chipmunks for cheap entertainment. I always had some granola on the porch for my visitors. Each night I had to get all the thread back in order from the class...good thing I didn't have a roommate! Sewing machine was set up in my room and I've included a picture of my current project :)
This was my first experience having quilters with treadle sewing machines...yes...treadle sewing machines! They hauled the cabinets and all into the room with a hand cart and they were able to free motion quilt with Superior Threads too!
Since this was going to be such a long stretch away from home my husband Kent and dog Miter showed up at my doorstep late last night for a surprise weekend visit. We spent the morning at the show before it got hot and then grabbed a picnic lunch and headed for Camp Sherman to the river and the fish hatchery and then off for a couple mile hike. We couldn't remember how long it had been since we had such a day for just "us".
