Tonight is our guild meeting, so I'll take the quilt I completed for Project Linus. Janet Fogg is to be our guest speaker. She is an award-winning quilting, and her studio is located in the Portland area. It should be a great event tonight. I'm missing a grandson baseball game for the meeting, so anyone who knows me well, knows I am really, really looking forward to hearing Janet.

At Astoria, they have a wonderful walkway that goes along the Columbia River. We took a long walk along the walkway, and went out on the pier, where all these sea lions were resting and making a racket, probably belching and digesting all the salmon they eat. (Spoken like a person from the Northwest!!) :-)

Yesterday was such a lovely day here, so we spent a fair amount of time outside soaking up the vitamin D!
I have worked a bit on putting together the blocks and rows of the Project Linus quilt I showed in my previous post, but since I don't have much to report on that front, I thought I would show an early quilt I made. This was made in 2003 and is from the Lessons from Mama sampler book. This quilt was such fun to make, and since I hadn't made many quilts at that point, it was a great learning experience. It now resides on top of the cedar chest in our bedroom. The reason I thought of this quilt is that Conni of http://allthruthehouse.blogspot.com/ had completed a few blocks of this pattern, and hers is going to be just lovely!
