I'm home again, this time for a little over a month, then another trip. I always find it hard to get back into a productive work mode after some time off. I did get out to Studio B this morning and worked on a special order. Part of my resistance is due to the fact that after reading through the Quilt National information, I discovered that I will be gone when the notifications are sent out and wont be back until the day before the quilts are due. So if by chance one of mine were accepted I wouldn't be here to do anything about it. I can also look at it as now having a couple of quilts to enter somewhere else. I have been doing my daily stitching project, here are #163 - #170.

I returned home Monday evening after a wonderful girls week at Diamond Lake,WA. We spent most of our time at our little house on the lake, spending time in the water everyday and just soaking up the gorgeous views.

Bright and early tomorrow morning, I'm going to pick up two friends and we are taking off for a girls week. A fourth friend has rented a house for the month of August at Diamond Lake, WA, so we are going to join her. It's north of Spokane and very close to the Idaho border, about a seven hour drive from here. We are escaping the very hot, dry smokey air in our area and hoping for something a bit cooler without the smoke from wildfires. My laptop is staying home so I'll be out of touch for a while. The Fantasy garden class was fun on Friday. Below on the left is Ardele, she is here from Minnesota visiting her sister Donna on the right. They are showing off the little quilts they made.

My life is generally very low key without a lot of extra things going on, but this past week has been a bit different. Here's a few of the things I've done. Went to a Quilt show in Kuna, ID, the theme was barns.
