In Anchorage, our yard is still knee deep in snow, but down below the roads are dusty, & muddy. We call it spring break-up.
This is what the driveway looks like in the morning, before the sun melts the ice for the rest of the day. Below is how my car looks, one day after it was washed!
Here is part of Wendy’s quilt , I left it about 1/2 quilted. We also got Warren’s counter top installed in the bar. The sink & faucets still need to be hooked up.
The top is Onyx, we will put lights inside, & it will glow.
Now we are in Blaine, Washington, at a Worldmark condo, at Birch Bay. We were exhausted after our over night flight, then spent the morning in Seattle with Michelle & Darian. They will be coming up to the condo, along with Jon, on Monday. Warren is doing his exercises for his new knee.
Yesterday was gray & windy. We went to LaConner, where they are getting ready for their tulip festival.
The field of Daffodils was a welcome sight.
The red tulips were beautiful too. We were told it’s been cold, & most of the tulips haven’t blossomed yet, but what were there were beautiful.
Wee were there for the Quilt Museum. It was funny when we went in, a lady named Ruth greeted us. She asked if I was a quilter. I gave her my card, & she got very excited. She remembered my quilt, acted like I was a celebrity. My “Oh! to Dance with a Dolphin!” was the cover quilt for their festival a couple of years ago.
I loved this beaded purse.
These were just a couple of several tulip quilts that were hanging for sale on the first floor.
The exhibit on the second floor was my favorite, but of course no photos were allowed there.
The top floor was Sharon Baker & Elaine Bowles.
These icons made me think of Debra & Barbara. They were framed in vintage wood pieces.
I loved the little squares, they reminded me of jewelry.
I liked the colors & quilting in this simple piece.
This log cabin quilt was fun, done with hand-dyed hankie edges, just over lapped. I liked how dimensional it made it.
I bought some yarn at the Yarn shop. & as a reward for my DH taking me to LaConner, we stopped at the Brewing Co. & got a glass & a growler to take home.
