Sisters ... (part 2)


These were some pretty cool cats!


We were enjoying these "paint chip" challenge quilts when it began to sprinkle.


Soon the ladder crew arrived to rescue the hanging quilts.


It was a good thing too because soon it was coming down in buckets. After that, only the indoor displays were there to see. Still, we managed to see quite a bit and the atmosphere was just super.


And after the rain? A dinner with the whole gang and the most wonderful sisters of all, my eldest and youngest daughters, who with their families, made the whole day possible.

  2. Helloooo, dear Julie ! Oh, I'm SO happy to read you again. I thought your blog was "on pause", kind of vacation, as I didn't get any Blog news from you through my Google reader... actually, it just seems that Blogger is playing some tricks again, as today I'm discovering lots of your posts in once. I'm so happy that you could make it to Oregon, dear. Thanks also for the gorgeous pictures. My favourite being those of you and your lovely family, (plus your quilts of course ;>).

    XOXOXOXOXOXO

  11. I have seen the cat quilt before or one similar to this one. I just love the bright colors and the theme, of course. That's too bad about the rain. I hope you were able to see most of the outdoor quilts.

    You and your daughters look wonderful. Beautiful daughters!
