Well, this is my 8th wonderful year with my four friends at Lopez island in the San Juans. We are still friends and still quilting. The photo of the five of us was taken at Holly B's bakery in downtown Lopez. Mary Lou is second from the right and Holly B is on the end (right). Best bread and cinnamon rolls in the world!
I took the usual photo of a sail boat on the ocean, flowers on my frined Laurie's porch, three great mail boxes on my drive from the ferry to Laurie's house, some FLOWER POWER blocks I am doing from my new book (available Marylouquiltdesigns.com)
I am hoping these photos will give you the sense of part of the color and flavor of Lopez although you must go there to see how truly wonderful it is (in every way).
I wish I had the money to buy a place there...instead I go to visit yearly and say "hello" to the flowers, trees and birds I have met oever the years.
There are tons of quilting ideas here. And of coarse many story quilt ideas. I have begun a new little quilt with five happy friends.
Hope you are enjoying your summer and staying creative...it beats pills.
