Quilt With Us

Joy Gross's Blog (16)

I am the worst blogger..

It has been a year, where in the world has time gone? We did spend 5 months in Arizona and the weather was Hot but it was lovely to have sunshine everyday. I am thinking 5 months is a bit too long. We were house sitting for Roberts sister while her and her husband were traveling. We had a great time then had to head home to reality, yard work ugh lol.

A lot of stuff going on since we came back.. Mother's Day Celebration at my daughters in Eastern Washington.. Then about a week later… Continue

Memorial Day Weekend

I hope everyone had an enjoyable weekend.. we sure did.  My eldest daughter and family came down to visit.. it was a busy time of walks, hikes, going to dinner.. night time fires and smores. yum  Now I am trying to collect my self and clean house.. it wasn't too bad at all.. but there is always stuff to do when someone stays in your home.  The over load of people lol must have been to much on our water heater Judy says.. because when I went to take a lovely long soak after everyone left ummm…

Hello Quilters..

Nice to be back again.. We have had a lot of changes going on. New Dog.. New City.. New house.. new Neighbors.. Buying selling houses yikes husband retired (YAY).  As soon as hubby retired we went to Arizona for 2 months of sunshine and nothing we HAD to do, it was wonderful. We came home to our new home and started the unpacking process, still working on that :)  Happy to say that my sewing room is almost completely unpacked and organized.

Another great day....

I was really very lazy and laid in bed until the sun shinned in my face.... Karen suggested Burgerville was a nice place to go so I headed there for a Tillamook hamburger and rosemary fries and ice tea... she was so right it was great.

Then I headed back to the beach... but had to stop in Longview/Kelso to check out a couple of quilt stores.. Momma Made It and Paisley Duck... what fun…

My first BIG GIRL sewing machine...

I have been way too tired to post but I was excited to show you my new machine... My cousin Karen... "she is the best" she put up with all my craziness of trying to decide and headed me in the right direction and ran me around Portland looking at machines.. poor thing was so worn out... I cant believe she is letting me come back tonight to go to class with her.. lol…

Goodness... it has been way too long

I really want to be on here much more than I am.. I just cant seem to get myself organized. It is so much fun to see what is going on with everyone and what you are making. I am really going to try and get on here at least weekly.
