Quiltworks First Friday

Thank you all for your kind and compassionate words at the loss of my Father in Law. Because we are the only family that lives in town our home has been the center of funeral planning, family and food.

I was able to get away Friday evening to meet up with Bonnie and Randy for Quiltworks First Friday event and dinner afterwards. It was a much needed outing.

 The Juniperberries group was highlighted and the featured quilter was Pat Wellman. All of the quilts were wonderful and were the style I make and enjoy so much.








My talented friend Phyllis made this to honor her mother)




I am not at home and not using my home computer so these are not cropped or organized.

As a family we had planned to go to a Mariner's game and that is where we are going tonight. I just wish George would have been able to make it.

Have a lovely day.
