A Visit to the Hulda Klager Lilac Garden

Mark and I joined Dena and her dad for a trip to Woodland, WA to see the Hulda Klager Lilac Garden. Only a few sprinkles of rain, but the lilacs were past their prime and so we missed enjoying the heavenly scent of lilacs. It was still a lovely outing and Dena bought me two lilac starts for my garden. So many varieties to choose from. I got a “Congo” lilac and a “Nadezhda” lilac. I can’t wait to see them bloom in my back yard!

A Day at the NW Quilt Show

My good friend Lori and I went to see the NW Quilt show last week at the Portland Expo Center. We saw so many beautiful quilts that inspire me for my next sewing project. Now I have to decide whether to tackle a king size bedspread or begin some smaller project. Here are some photos from this years show, plus many of my favorites from previous shows.

A Wonderful visit with Dena

Spring is here at last and the garden is sprouting thanks to frequent showers. We just got back from visiting Dena in Davis, CA and attending her graduation ceremony. She is now officially Dr. Dena Grossenbacher. We had a lovely time and enjoyed the warm sunny weather of California. Here’s a short video of her graduation.
