I am off early tomorrow morning for the Land of 10,000 Lakes.
While I am gone, of course, my guild is having a speaker I hate to miss. She does solar blue printing and sunscreening. I have included a link to her demo videos on my blogsite, www.karenstenback.wordpress.com.
Happy Vacation to Me! Hope I don't suffer computer withdrawal, while I am gone! lol.

The event was held at the Oregon Convention Center in downtown Portland. (Where else would they hold a sock-knitting convention but in a building adorned with knitting needles?)
There were some wonderful classes. Here I am with Mary Scott Huff, who…Continue
It can't be August already...5 months until Christmas, that should get those machines humming! I'm sure some of us will welcome cooler weather! Texas quilters have truly suffered this year! The good news is that sweet corn is ready and mums and the NY state fair and Bouckville Antique festival is in a couple of weeks! So summer is still racing...Enjoy!
