Where's June?

This month has been an absolute whirlwind. We started the month off with our annual Weekend in the Woods, in Graegle Ca. We had 25 in atttendance. Lots of fun was had by all. Silly games with prizes, UFO'S completed, Mini classes taught, food eaten, new friendships were made , and oh the best part LAUGHTER! The plans for next year are already underway.

On June 11 my Mom had major surgery, a left carotid endarterectomy.
Surgery went well, but it sure took forever. My years as a nurse seem to cause me great angst when it comes to those I love. My mind goes to the "what ifs." Reminder to self, I am not the one in control. So now almost three weeks later Mom is doing well, still a little tired, but that is normal. My Aunt Nita came to help out, what a lifesaver. The bond that sisters share is such a powerful love. My Mom is 86 and Aunt Nita will be celebrating her 90th birthday the end of July. Such amazing ladies. I love you Potratz girls!

Rocki and Ronda headed to McCloud to vendor for a Linda Ballard mystery the second weekend in June. Great weather, great ladies, great quilt, great accommodations, great town, great scenery and a world class teacher. What more could you ask for?

My husband took our son-in-law and grandkids deep sea fishing the third weekend in June. So Jen and I took great advantage of our alone time. With Ronda's help we quilted 6 quilts and pieced a bunch of new tops. Did I mention we laughed a lot?

Mark and I went to Quincy on June 21st. The Crazy Quilters of Quincy asked if I would be their speaker for June and bring a mini store. The women in that quilt guild are some of the kindest quilters I have ever met. Kudos to you crazy quilters of Quincy and thank you so much for your hospitality. Carolyn took us on a barn tour the next day. What a treat! Enjoy the pics.

So we have one more weekend left in June and we hope to work in our yard. Our son and his wife are coming for a visit and I don't want to do chores while they are here. Enjoy your weekend.

God Bless you all,
