Donna B:

Thanks Barbara.  We may be making changes in the trip but I am still hoping to make it to the Sister's Quilt Show.  I have been wanting to see that for years now!

 

Donna,

This is in Oregon right?  I am going to the Quilt expo in Redmond OR... and Saturday going to the Sister's Quilt show.

Are you going to be at the Expo too?

Sandy, I didn't know about the Quilt Expo in Redmond!!!  Is it just the one day?  I will google it, to see what my options are.

We are driving down on Thursday afternoon and will probably spend that night somewhere between The Dalles and  Redmond (we're coming from Winthrop, WA).  We are planning to camp at the Sister's City Park Fri and Sat nights, so need to get there fairly early on Friday for a spot (no reservations possible).  

I would love to meet up with you Saturday in Sister's!  DH will be going on a hike on the PCT and leaving me on my own for the Quilt Show. (I haven't been able to find anyone to meet up with at the Quilt Show yet, sigh.)  Will you be with a group or is getting together a possibility?

Has anyone finished their Church Windows Block?  I made one last week but the piece was not the right size.  I'm almost finished with the remade block.

Sorry to report that I won't be able to make it to the Sister's Quilt Show this coming Saturday.  (But on the bright side, Sandy will be...and I have asked her to be sure and take pictures and post them on the forum for everyone.)  

This has really been a disappointing week for me as I have been looking forward to this for some time!  First, I had a health issue come up and travel had to be cleared by the doctor (just got the release on Monday) then our water system failed.  We live in an arid area of eastern Washington state and have a "marginal" well with a cistern to hold water when the well is not producing as much as we are using each day.  With these kinds of "systems" there are pumps, controls, etc. that can go bad and we have had issues off and on over the years that can be fixed fairly quickly.  However, this time...NOT!  As it turned out, our cistern has been invaded by tree roots and is cracked and leaking water...so no water storage during the hottest, driest time of year.  Did I mention we have a large vegetable garden?  So until we can get the big equipment in to replace the cistern, we have to be here to monitor the water available each day and ration out water to the garden - only as needed.  Not to mention the house...quick showers, wash clothes at laundramat, less toilet flushes, etc.  The flower garden will only get enough water to keep the plants alive!

I am still hopeful that this will all get done before the end of July because they still will be displaying quilts around town in Sisters until the end of the month.  It isn't the Quilt Show, but I still would get to see a lot of beautiful quilts on display. If I do make it there, I will take pictures...for sure!

And BTW, the poster picture (with the deer) that I posted earlier...I saw it on the Sister's Quilt Show website.  It was from 1995, is considered "retired" (no longer available to purchase) other than from private collections...and the price is...$400.00!  Woo Hoo!  If I do make it to Sister's, I am buying more posters...it's a good investment!!!
