Does this Look like Spring???

We went to Anchorage on Wed. This is what it looked like in Thompson Pass. Gives you warm fuzzies, right?? NOT!!! I'm not real pleased with our weather--I hate global warming! and then Becca rubs it in--and my sister tells me it's in the high 80's in Minnesota....arggghhhh!
I've been working at my paying job so will hopefully post the finish of another baby quilt early next week. We are having a sale at the shop while Pat is at Quilt Market in Minneapolis, so my stash increased--a bunch---but most of it is earmarked for projects, which is a good thing...I think!

Meet Gertrude

Today a friend and I made a road trip to Wasilla to meet Gert. And she now belongs to me!!! DH and I will go up to get her on his vacation--we will need to rent a trailer with a 14 foot bed. She also has a 30 inch throat. She's a big girl and sweet as can be. I can hardly wait!!

Another finish

This baby quilt was pieced at the retreat. The next is now in the hand binding stage and the third is still in its plastic baggy.

I still can't wear a shoe--this is getting very old! How did you stand it, Jan?!?

DH is going back to the Slope a day later than normal (Dr. appt) so we are going out to dinner tomorrow night to celebrate our anniversary. 27 years!!! Where does the time go???

Crafter's retreat

was this weekend at camp. I was terribly organized. I took my machine and paraphernalia, 3 baby quilts cut and kitted, and one to bind. I got 2 of the three ready to quilt, and just finished the binding on the pansy quilt.
