With the New puppy...
I needed to find a quilt to do since Pacific Fabrics was closing it's Puyallup store. I searched around and found one I fell in love with. Check it out... Dear Jane Quilt and Civil War Love Letters. I found a local Reproduction Quilt Workshop which a few of the guild members introduced me to. I so love them for this!!
Then to my surprise.. After 15 years of looking, I found my soul mate!! We were together for a few years 20 years ago.. We ended up splitting apart because of his addictions, and me being to young and dumb enough to understand it. The good news is.. We found each other!!! We both have our lives in order, and both single.. YAY us!! The weekend after I found him, I was down in Salem, OR visiting. It was like 20 years melted away.. and what we felt back then was still there.. Amazing!! I am so grateful that we found each other. Life is good!!
I was elected President of our Quilt guild. At first the thought horror-fied me, then I started thinking about it, and I really think we could all have fun with this.. Time will tell.
End of the month was one of my favorite time of year.. Women's Primitive Skills Weekend!!! I taught how to make dream catchers, and beaded feather. Here are some random photos that I took from my camera, and random photos that I took with my phone.
First half meeting as president.. Wow.. it sure is different sitting at that side of the table.
Time to gear up for the July Quilt Show!
My Daughter Graduated!! I'm so proud!!!!
Oh Boy.. on June 5th, I ended up rear-ended my son.. I can not believe I did this!!! His Jeep Cherokee is totaled, and my front-end was messed up. After having my car for one month shy of 10 years, I wrecked it. Thankfully, my honey customizes cars! He looked at me and said, "It's okay honey, we'll me it look like it never happened." 3 weeks later, then only signs it hasn't been wrecked is the emblem hasn't been put on. He's so awesome!! From start to finish...
The Covington Quilters Quilt show, was so Awesome!!! Here are the photos to this.. A group of us did a quilt for our local fire department to honor them on the 10th anniversary of 9/11. here are photos of them accepting this award.
My Puppy died. It was run over by a car.. It got out of the yard and into the street. :(
I started looking to see what other Boston Terrier was out there. Knowing that it takes a long time to find one.. I told myself I would just look, if one was there, it was meant to be. Voila! There was a Boston Terrier/Pugg mix.. He was a rescue dog in a foster home... Yes, I had to go get him.. He needed me as much as I needed him.. What a great dog.. I'm so glad I looked.. :)
It was my birthday.. YAY.. yet another year older.. booooooooooooooooo..
Two things that make this month the hardest is..
The first anniversary of my grandmother's death. She crossed over at 100 years old on 9/11 of 2010.
Then on the15th Sir Walter Lindal. Crossed over at the age of 92. He is the founder of our company, and my buddy. He use to come into work 3 times a week, and he called that retirement.. He was even putting in yet another patent right before he died from Kidney problems.. He is greatly missed! :(
