Rambling Thoughts

I did a little stitching on my 2012 Primitive Gathering BOW...I'm on block 11 but it wasn't enough to take a photo of and share.  I did decide that I will be making aprons for my sister and her friends who are coming for Quilt Show this year and so I played with fabrics.  I need 2 prints for each apron.  I wanted a special one for my sister which required a trip to the Stitchin' Post for some of Valori's new fabric line Wish.  I love the idea of the wishes of her family and friends printed on the limbs of trees.







This past weekend my phone made a little jingle and when I looked on the screen it was a reminder that it was my mom's birthday.  When I programmed it originally I must have set it on a yearly reminder.  It gave me pause...she would have been 83.  Sometimes it is a little thing that will make you take an intake of air that hurts to the core.  Now it is my sister and I...we are the oldest generation of our immediate family...how the heck did that happen???  


Times keep a marching, today our youngest turns 25!!! Happy Birthday Connor! ...when we were in Redmond I took a photo of this building...we used to take our kids here for lunch and an afternoon of fun...it was a funky museum with games to play...now it is a run down building for sale....most likely some one will buy it, knock it down and build a mini-mall.  It would make a really big quilt store!!! LOL  Maybe I can convince Fabric Depot to open a satellite depot in Central Oregon!  Not!!!  We have many wonderful shops and I hope that those of you who can make it to the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show this year enjoy all the shopping opportunities.
