Quilt Show is coming up!

Well, it is that time of year where most who live in Sisters head out of town! It is quilt show time and the highway gets shut down and driving through town is impossible. It is time for The Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show! The largest outdoor quilt show in the world! Visit the web site for The Stitchin' Post and get the calendar for all the events for the week leading up to the quilt show. That address is

I got a call today from a lady in California who discovered me through this blog. She was wanting to get more information on another quilt show that was in the area. The Pineneedlers Quilt Show. This is a show that is being held on July 11th from 10:00 am until 4:00 pm-ish. The show displays products of fantastic workmanship displayed in an environment that reminds you of days gone by. Some of the quilts are for sale. There also has been a "fabric salad" area where you can buy a bag of scraps for $1.00. I am not sure if it is going to be there this year or not. But there is always the ever-popular potholders for sale! The monies made from the show go to fund scholarships for kids who attended Black Butte School.

I was going to post some photos but realized that my camera is at my parents house! So we have a photoless post, but hopefully it was full of enough information to get you interested in attending this years festivities!

Thanks for popping in!

P.S. I am working the ambulance that will be posted in the middle of town. We will have free water and first aid supplies. Pop in and say HI. I would love to meet you...

Baabaara's Wild and Wooly

I took a trip to one of my favorite stores today. Baabaara's Wild and Wooly. The owner, Pam, is as sweet as they come. She is always interested in what's going on with the family. She is excited to show off some new items and raves about all of the talent that shops at her store. So go visit her website. The address is or visit in person. Her soon to be **NEW** store is going to be located in the Town Square here in Sisters. Across from Allies Deli and in the old Silli Chilli's location. They will open the doors July 2nd.

Anyway, when I shopped today I just needed some wool for the core of a doll I am going to start tomorrow. It is just plain undyed wool. But I have all these wonderful other colors to "dress" the doll with. Arn't they beautiful?

I have not done very much quilting lately. It is WAY too hot to be covered with fabric.

I did finish the Jewels of Virginia quilting that was in my last post. Can you believe that my mom won the quilt in the raffle???? I was so excited. Now we just have to work out visitation for it! HAHA

So, that is about it for now. I have been so busy working that I did not have time for hardly anything. But now, I am unemployed except for some daycare here and there until Fall when I will be doing daycare 7 days a week. Yikes! Hopefully I will find time now and again to do some sewing!

Thanks for dropping in to check on me! I know some of you were thinking I had fallen off of the face of the Earth!
