Sisters'n'Stitches February Meeting

We were low in numbers but high in spirits at our Valentines Day meeting. Due to Pat's illness, we met at Barb's home. Unfortunately, there was a lot of sickness going around so we had to do without many of our fun friends.  Lorali showed us this amazing "Two Color" wonder. It was a quilt she made for A Clark County Quilter's Challenge.  We don't know why she didn't win!! It was an entirely original design and really fantastic.
Barb showed us this quilted notebook cover she made. All the fancy motifs are embroidered and it was truly beautiful.  So, you can see, Show and Tell didn't last too long but most of us have works in progress!
These are the cute ornament we exchanged. We hope to see everybody next month at Margy's!

Happy Valentines Day

Time to put up the Heart Quilt
And bake cookies
And tell my sweetheart who puts up with all my craft and sewing messes and with glitter all over his domain, how much I love and appreciate him!

New Cupcake Apron

I just finished this apron - I'm having fun playing with cute fabrics and appliqued motifs.

Beach Day Trip

On Saturday, Gary, Molly and I ran to the coast for the day. Molly really wasn't sure if she wanted to play on the beach or jump back in the car...too many bigger doggies running around without leashes!
No trip to the northern Oregon coast is complete without a stop at my favorite shop: PACIFIC CREST COTTAGE in Gearhart. Just turn west at the Dairy Queen on 101 and go a couple blocks. It's on the right next to Fitzgeralds.
The owner, Joy is so fun to talk to and you can see her passion in the great things she fills her shop with.
You can tell she is an Anglophile-there are British influences everywhere.
   I  passed on buying this Valentine crown, but I did relieve her on quite a bit of her ribbon inventory.
