Busy Summer Times

Super sorry for being so mute.  I've been on twitter or even a few emails have been sent out.

Important items I've been doing is I was an adult volunteer for my step-daughter's Girl Scout troop's visit to the Newport, Oregon.

We got to see the dock that washed up from Japan . . . big hunk of concrete!  Awesome.

We even met the Newport dog, Pepper, when we went out to eat clam chowder.  All the locals knew this dog. . hilarious!

I've been seeing RED . . not in a good way.  I'm very angry at myself as I burnt my neck to a crisp.  I didn't realize that these girls could stay at the beach for SO LONG.  Lesson learned (or re-learned) - sunscreen with me all the time!

My family went to go pick 40+ lbs of blueberries at a local u-pick farm.  Oh so yummy!  We'll have berries for the year.

I'll be working my fingers to the bone the next few days as well as I'll be prepping for my class with TULA PINK.  Oh how exciting!  If all goes well I'll have a quilt top ready to show off by the end of the day.  And hanging out with Tula all day will be awesome! 


  1. Looks like loads of fun you've been having! So jealous you get to spend time hanging out with Tula, I just get to hang out with one of her patterns on Sunday lol

  2. Wow! That dock is amazing! And I can't wait until the blueberries ripen around here...I'm so excited to go pick some!

  3. Yum! You'll have to tell me where you went! Tula Pink will be FUN!

  4. I am so jealous. I wish I lived somewhere where I could go blueberry picking. Yum!

  5. We are going blueberry picking on Friday - but I somehow doubt that we will get anywhere near 40 lbs! Anne's attention span is not that long! Can't wait to see what you did for your Tula Pink class!

  6. Looks like a fun trip! Enjoy you're class with Tula!
