Quilting Lessons

OK, will I ever finish that bear quilt?? Seriously, today was taken up with quilting but with teaching someone else how to use the longarm quilting machine. My friend Barb came up after lunch and we had a lesson and then we loaded one of her quilts on the machine and off she went using a cute pantograph with bears and trees. Pantographs are printed patterns that the quilter traces with a laser light. This quilt is for the bed in their cabin up the Boulder. The pattern she chose is perfect!

Michael spent the day fixing the VW and working on friend Steve's engine for his 1947 truck. Michael was saying at dinner that he doesn't know why he didn't have a shop before, he enjoys tinkering with stuff so much--I'm glad he has a shop now!

Emmi spent the day chasing those two other dogs and is once again exhausted.

A photo of Nat in his sawmill. It makes my heart skip a beat to know this 87 year old man is operating a sawmill but it is something he really enjoys doing.
The three dogs out for a walk.
Our weather has certainly changed--rain, wind and rather chilly today.

  1. Don't give up on the bear quilt! Emmi is really growing. I bet she had lots of fun with all those other dog friends.
