Pine Meadow Heaven (Winners!!!)

Winner ~ Kathy MacKie!!! 
 email me your mailing address!!!  Congratulations!!! 
 And since I couldn't pass up a second spin of Mr. Random Number generator I am also sending a pattern to 
so send me your mailing address also!

Pine Meadow is a little piece of Sisters heaven.  Not only do we have a spectacular view but hidden in the nooks and crannies are quilters! Several quilters!!!  I think we all chose this place because we could just walk about 3 blocks to an amazing Quilt Store!

You have heard me talk about the local landscapers with 4 legs and horns but we also have the most amazing bird population.  One of the most interesting is the Killdeer.  They run around like sandpipers looking for a beach.  And if you get to close to their nests they pretend to be wounded and flop around so you will become distracted from the nest and think they might be an easier meal.

The truly amazing thing is they just lay their eggs on top of the dirt...with the faith that mother nature will help their population survive!

Besides the Killdeer we also have the Hal!!!  you ask...what is a Hal??? Well Hal is a Pine Meadow resident know by the locals as Santa at Christmas and in the quilting world...Hal, the longarmer!  Both he and his wife Deni are quilters but he is the one who has mastered the long arm quilting machine.  So if you need a quilt done here is another longarmer to consider.
Their business is called The Finishing Touch
