O Blogger

Oh, Blogger, why are you being fickle??? I have pictures to post, but Blogger is not cooperating. I'll try again soon. We did mostly wine tasting today. There is a quilt shop very close to where we are staying here in Grant's Pass, called the Purple Pincushion, but alas, they are closed on Sundays and we won't have time to stop on Monday before we leave town. We hit several wineries and kicked around historic Jacksonville for a bit. There was a quilt shop there called Country Quilts. They had a room that had stacks upon stacks (literally hundreds) of hand made quilts for sale. They gave me a free fat quarter because I was a fellow quilter! Very nice people there.

We are off early tomorrow for a power boat ride on the Rouge River and then over to the Oregon Caves for a couple of days. I don't think there is Internet access there, so it may be a couple of days before I am able to post again. I'll give you all an update when I get to Ashland!

Vacation Day 1

Well we made it to Oregon! We left a bit later than we intended, and we got to our hotel at about 8:00 tonight. We only stopped once in Redding for a short break. Unfortunately, Lance has a cold, but we are carrying on anyway. I snapped this shot of Mt. Shasta from the car window as we drove.

Tomorrow we're off for some wine tasting and maybe some geocaching. Watch for another update!

Happy Trails

Well we're off tomorrow morning for our latest road trip and I can't tell you how excited I am! We are headed up to Southern Oregon for wine tasting, geocaching, fabric shopping, and Shakespeare. Oh, and blogging. I will attempt to blog as much as possible to keep you all apprised of our trip. We'll see how that goes... WiFi is not quite everywhere yet. Anyhow, check in often to see what we're up to!

Each day last week I would come home from work and the pieces of the block that I've been working on were askew. How can this be? No one is home during the day. The windows are all closed, so it's not the wind. Hmmmm.........

What's Up?

Well I've been quite busy lately. I took a break from sewing after the summer workshop ended, but now I'm gearing up for class which is starting soon. The preview is on Monday, September 10 at 6 pm. The classes start the following week at the usual 6 - 9 pm time. The Redwood City rec book has the times listed backwards, with the preview showing at 3 hours long and the classes at 1 hour long. However, rest assured, the times are as usual, it was a mis-print in the book.

My mother-in-law, Marlene, is turning 75 this month, and she is throwing herself a party! Lance and I, and Lance's brother Steve are helping, and last weekend I made a picture collage to have out on a table. First it was just going to be some pictures on a poster board, but five trips to Michael's later, it is a little more fancy. I actually scrapped some plans to make it fancier due to time constraints. Here is a picture of the result. We got a bunch of old pictures and scanned them for the board (no actual pictures were harmed in the making of this project...).

The other big thing going on is that we are going on vacation in a couple of weeks!!! I am SO excited. We are driving up to southern Oregon for a week. Two days in Grant's Pass, two days at the Oregon Caves, and two days in Ashland to see some plays. My goal is to blog from the road every day, but we'll see how that goes.

But for now, keep quilting!!
