There's so much to tell you about, and so little time!
I've been helping these guys with our new two story garage.
Steve and William hard at work.
Let's just say a construction worker I am not! The other day they needed help moving the trusses to an area where the crane operator could easily lift them. I didn't realize trusses were so heavy! When I went to lift one end of the truss, I lost my grip and fell! The guys didn't realize I fell and they dragged me along with them! Talk about funny!!!
I am so happy for Steve that his dream of having a shop is coming true. He loves to sit under the oak tree and stare at it.
Isn't he cute?
I would be the same way if someone would build me a two story quilting studio. Hint. Hint.
I do have lots of things to blog about. It seems like there's something going on every day like the antique quilt auction I helped Terry with, a wedding reception for Terry's niece that I helped Terry decorate, a fat quarter basket that I made, and lots of mailbox love from bloggy friends.
The exciting thing happening today is that I am hosting an event for my Quilt Guild, and I get to see a very dear friend at the same time! Patricia Knoechel, Eleanor Burns' sister from Quilt in a Day, has been a friend of our Guild for the past 25 years. She is our special guest at our quilt shows and does quilting demonstrations from their latest publications. I always have the honor of being Patricia's helper.

That photo is a little blurry (because I'm not the photographer). Here's a better photo of her with my friends, Deanna, and Nell, the President of our Guild.

About a month ago Patricia called me and said she had nothing to do this weekend. She was going to be in the area and was wondering if I could find a place for her to do quilting demos for our Guild and community. I found a place and it's today!!!! Yay!!! I can't wait!!!
I'll shoot lots of photos, and yes there might possibly be a blurry photo of me and Patricia, but that's okay. I'm used to it.
Until then, have a great weekend!!
