New Friend and Longarm Quilting Class

It was a beautiful day in the Black Hills of South Dakota. We slept well and woke rested for a change. I walked the Jazzy dog early then got ready to take off for my first longarm quilting class. JoAnn, the teacher and representative for APQS Longarm Quilting Machines lives just outside Hill City. We were both amazed at the similarities in our lives. We are both 53, both city girls that married cowboys and are both incredibly happy with our lives. She loves cats and I love dogs. I learned so much today and at some points, the light bulb went off!! We enjoyed a wonderful lunch and glass of wine at the local winery and finished up our class about 3pm. JoAnn is an extremely talented quilter and it was a pleasure to see all her many works of art!

Michael rode the motorcycle all day and came back saying, "This is great bike riding country!" Jazzy dog was ready for a walk when we got home so we went up one of the horse trails--she finds many things to sniff!

We had leftover ribs and fresh corn on the cob for dinner--life is good! Our friends Ellie and Jim stayed in this campground a couple months ago--you can't beat the rate, $14 a night for full hookups and wi-fi!
