Pillow Case Tutorial & The Weekend Round Up

WOW!  What a full weekend!!!  In our neck of the woods it was rodeo weekend.  The Sisters Rodeo is one of the big qualifiers and so you get cowboys and girls from all over the country. Plus, it was Father's Day weekend!  We lucked out that the weather...although cold was clear.  After the parade HH and I huddled with some friends around our cups of coffee at the Sisters Coffee Company....ahhhhh.  I did set off the smoke alarm Father's Day morning...so no sleeping in for HH :)  Enzo was hiding in my sewing room...sigh.

Here are a few highlights of the parade!

This was my favorite little guy in the parade!

Beautiful horse and rider!

What's a parade without chickens who drive!

there were bands, dancers and a lone bag piper...who luckily missed what the horses are leaving behind, lol

and...so...our new road has offically been christened!

I made up a pillowcase tutorial.  I hope you understand my process as taught to me by a Fabric Stalker.  There is a fare amount of chanting..."right sides together"...but, other than that it is a fun way to use up some novelty fabrics!

  3. We attended the Sister Rodeo, with our three oldest who were just little kiddos, many years ago and witnessed Lane Frost's successful ride on Red Rock! What a day! We were fortunate to get to spend a bit a time visiting with Lane and petting Red Rock post performance. The unfortunate thing, besides Lane's untimely death, was that I left the rodeo grounds with a seat full of splinters! Ouch! Our now adult son, just drove through Sisters about 2 weeks ago and came home thrilled, having seen all the fun improvements being made at the rodeo grounds!
