The Guild and The Dump

My friend Caryl Spinney has encouraged me to join the local quilt guild and provided a contact—who just happens to live in North Ranch.  When I dropped my paperwork at Elaine’s house she invited me to attend their semi-monthly meeting in Wickenburg today—so off I went, early! SmileGreat group of ladies, very welcoming and judging from show and tell—they are prolific quilters!  Recently members of the group were given bags of scrap fabrics and they then created unique quilts from these mystery bags—it was amazing!  (My iPhone doesn’t take photos so well inside—what’s up with that you iPhone users??)


String quilts, a jacket, a rug, even a nightgown—these ladies were creative with their bags of fabric scraps!



When I came home Michael had our little trailer all ready for a trip to the dump with the debris from tearing out that wall on Monday—it is amazing how much junk there was just from that one little wall—can you imagine how much garbage we would generate if tearing out large walls!

Habitat For Humanity came a couple days ago and picked up some furniture we weren’t interested in keeping—a recliner, a TV cabinet and a computer desk—we were glad to see it go.  The previous owners left a complete set of dining furniture—early American—but perfectly usable.

The cowboy is remodeling the garage work space—he’s thrilled to have a “workshop!”  I did manage to clean the refrigerator in the house this afternoon after doing some yoga.  My back is still giving me fits and yoga does seem to help—I have this great carpeted, empty living room for a yoga studio—no excuses!

It has been very windy, very! and cool here yesterday and today—but it’s not snowing or raining as it is in Montana!

  1. It is way too cold to go back to Montana! We left Cottonwood Monday and miss AZ already. It is sooooo GREEN here in Oklahoma....on our way back to GREEN Indiana.Next winter, I am going to look for a quilting group in Borrego Springs.

  2. Great idea to tap everyone's creativity - love all the different quilting. With the guild and the yoga "studio" you're really making a second home now. I always think Michael has a workshop with him at all times, but I'm sure no second home would be complete without a real one! Lora is adorable as always :-)
