Since my last post I have been very busy!! We had a GREAT time at Quilt Festival in Long Beach, California. I am always encouraged after a is so fun to see old friends and make new ones!! Thanks to all who visited me at my booth!! Your support and encouragement means so much to me!!

Four days after returning home I had surgery and had my thyroid removed!! That was 2 1/2 weeks ago.....all went well and I am on the mend and doing fine!! My husband and family are so great at taking care of me! They took me on a weekend camping trip and they planned everything!!

I have been busy getting orders out.....preparing to send a Fall Trunk Show out to The Rabbit's Lair in Rogers, AR. If you are in the area make sure and visit their wonderful shop!!

Closer to home........ I will be participating in The Pine Needle Quilt Shop Open House in Lake Oswego on September 19 & 20 along with teaching a couple of classes there this fall. They have a wonderful shop full of GREAT FABRIC!!!

We are currently working on some improvements to our huge daylight basement so I can move my studio and office there and have much more room to work and create!! I am excited about it and can't wait to get everything moved down there. The sooner I get moved down there the sooner I will get my upcoming new designs together!!! New things are always fun!!!

Guess that's it for now......remember to keep stitching and have fun doing it!!!
