A look behind & a peek ahead......

It's not over yet....it's still Valentines Day for 5 more hours...SO spread the love, share a smile, give a hug!!

Now a look behind and a peek ahead.....

The new year came in just like we all planned and it's moving along way to quickly already!!
We had a GREAT trip down to Southern California at the end of JANUARY! Vending and teaching at Road to California Quilt Show & Quilt Conference is always so much fun!!
The days were BUSY and the nights were short!!
We loved seeing so many friends and making lots of new ones.
If you have never been to the show check it out start making plans for 2013!!

Our trip to "sunny" California would not be complete without our stop at Stars & Scraps Quilt Shop in Corona California. It always seems to rain when we are there...but there was no rain on our parade inside!!!
Thanks for inviting me to come teach again this year!!
You are always so kind and feed us well!!!
Love you all!!

Such a big thank you to my sister who came the day after Christmas and stayed until just last week!! She is such a huge help and encouragement to me!!! She just stitches and stitches and stitches!!
Thank you Jan!!

Along with the winter months always seems to come illness....especially when kissing all those sweet little grandkids I have!! 
In the first two weeks of FEBRUARY Jeff got a really bad cold.
He ended up at the doctor, and missed 3 days of work!!
I got the stomach flu!
Sister Jan got Jeff''s cold!!! She went home Thursday, and ended up in the hospital on Saturday with pneumonia!!! She is doing well and was released today to go home.

Now to top that off..guess who has the cold, fever, and cough now!!???

So, while I am trying to feel better, I am excited and getting ready to be a vendor at the
 Sewing & Stitchery Expo in Puyallup,Washington on March 1-4. If you are coming to the show come by and see me!!!

When APRIL gets here we will all be ready for SPRING....and what could be more fun that spending an afternoon at Hollyhill Quilt Shoppe at their S.p.R.u.N.g. Event!!!
I am priviliged to be invited to teach along with  Karla Eisenbach & Lisa Barnet from Sweetwater, Kathy Schmitz, & Bonnie Sullivan!!
 Sign up now so you don't miss out!!

MAY will be a busy month with us heading to Kansas City, Missouri for International Quilt Market!!
Shop owners travel from all over the world to spend their time bringing the
 newest sewing trends to their shops!!! 
Take time to support your local quilt shop!!

And that brings us to JUNE. Grandchild #6 (It's a girl) should be arriving sometime early in the month!! 

Thanks for your love!!!
