THE END OF THIS BLOG--COME VISIT MY OTHER BLOG PLEASE- MARY lOU AND WHIMSY TOO
Hello Dear Cherry friends, I have had this blog for many years and for some reason Google has made it so I cannot see the photos I load, I cannot post until they are all loaded, I cannot change the size of the photos and it just takes too long for me to post, go in and look and then write and then go back and forth. I could finish a quilt in the time I post these...haha. SO I am going back to only ONE BLOG and that will be Mary Lou and Whimsy Too. If you have not signed up there please do as I am cleaning out my sewing room and would love to give prizes away to people who sign up and comment. I have lost about 20 pounds since the middle of december and I am going to be sharing my ideas for still eating and being healthier and thinner. I am not trying to look like a model, I am trying to be healthier because I want to feel better. Drink water. :0) I also have been cooking some family favorites for my family and want to start sharing those recipes and some photos and also some fun things people send me and also some of my adventures on the road. Many people are sending in story quilt photos and COW photos and I want tho share those and some more cow ideas for you. I always wanted to go to blogs where the writers sounded like fun girlfriends and this is the flavor I want my blog to carry. I am proud to be a quilter, a Grandmother, a Gardener, a Friend and other hats I wear and I hope to share this and that you will share too. Please come and visit me at Mary Lou and Whimsy Too and we will both be very happy...and I will be honored. Thank you................

Farm Chicks, Art Fest and Story Quilting + Golf for your Hubby
Here is the Farm Chicks Poster for this year. This is where we will be going the day before my Idaho Retreat. It is sure to have lots to excite and a ton of ideas that you will love to think about to make once you get home. I always buy old trims, fabric, old tablecloths, some old dishes, a little furniture, last year I bought darling picnic boxes to store fabric in, a painted ironing board for a side table, an old American flag and earrings...as well as some charms to sew on quilts. We all meet up with a cute apron on and I hand out our tiaras for the week. It is fun because alot of people dress up in Vintage clothing, cowgirl attire and darling tops and aprons. Many people asked for photos. Then after that we will go to Artfest in historic Browns Addition in downtown Spokane where our Museum is. They have juried vendors with awesome art, jewelry, garden art, good food, and tons of things you will want to see. I bought the coolest pair of earring cheap there last year and I want more this year. :0) Then the next day starts the story quilt class. My husband has offered to take any husband's golfing on Tuesday which is his day off. We have beautiful golf coarses and lots to see here. Tourism is one of our number one industries and since we are on the Idaho border there is lots in both States. Hope you can make it...we are down to two openings and I would love to fill them....
