Camano Island Habitat Garden Tour

Here's something fun to do on Saturday. I've been a couple times. You'll see lots of beautiful yards & you'll get more ideas than you know what to do with.

Quilting,Quilting & More Quilting

It's been like the "flight of the bumble bees" around here. Finally delivered some quilts this week. Kathy made this first one. I think a sampler with friends. 

Had fun quilting different leaves & swirls.

Sally made this adorable duck quilt.
I think a teacher at Lakewood High School got this for her baby. Lucky her!

Jean worked her magic with some fabulous Kaffe fabrics on this Lone Star. We took a class together through CIQ (there's a slide show in the website) with Judy Irish. Very Bohemian!

Gerri's 117" square quilt was a workout!  Big squares for the border with leaves.

Beautiful Dresden Plate in the middle. Got to use yale blue thread.

And lots of "wide open spaces" to dance the day away on.  

Thank you ladies for the wonderful, inspiring quilts. It makes every day special.

Hope you are having a good week. Picked the strawberries again today. Yum! Mr S took a vacation day & we got the garage semi-clean. Just a couple more problem spots to go, organizing the paint supplies & tools. I'm the mechanical one at our house, so I'll be putting them where 
they make sense to me! 

Have a great weekend & enjoy the sunshine!

Evening Walk

I hope you aren't tired of seeing my end of the unwind. I'm delivering a couple more quilts tomorrow & will  have pictures to share. One of them made me feel like I was in a wrestling match!

One of my many friends.

Mt Rainier

The last of the sunset.

I heard some splashing & thought it was the tide coming in on the little driftwood logs.
Not this time. It seems Mr sea lion was having some fun close to shore. Of course I was not fast enough with the camera. Maybe next time. 

First strawberries of the season. Ha ha nasty little squirrels, I win!

Be back soon.
