I have been such a bad blogger. I just can't seem to catch up lately...I'm always running and seem to always be two steps behind. I'm VERY behind on reading my favorite blogs too! :( There are almost 200 posts on my blog reader, waiting to be read!
I can tell you that I have been sewing...I just can't tell you what it is or show any pictures!!! I've been sewing some secret projects for two of my bestest quilty friends (Peggy and Robin)...I will be seeing them next week at the annual Back Porch Friends retreat! I can hardly wait!! I'm packing up all kinds of projects to work on...so hopefully I'll have lots and lots of pictures to show you when I get back!
I do have a couple of pictures to share with you now though...remember I've mentioned the Fun Friday group and our first group project was the Snack Quilts? Here finally we have a group picture and all the quilts are finished!!!
From left to right is me, Kristen, Susan, and Jen. This picture was taken at a ladies retreat that we attend a couple of weeks ago in McCall, Idaho. It was so beautiful up there! Here is another picture the night before retreat...we had dinner together at On the Border and had Sangria Swirls to celebrate our finished quilts!! :)
Last weekend, a few volunteers helped to give the base Thrift Shop a new look. The thrift shop is run by the Officers Spouse's Group and the money raised goes to scholarships for military kids and spouses. It looks wonderful now with fresh paint and a few new (to us) shelving units.
Here are Kristen and Jen painting by the dressing rooms!
This is Rachel...she is the spouse of one the Singapore Air Force Officers.
More painting!! The Thrift Shop isn't always this messy!! We had things scrunched together, away from the walls...I will post some "after" pictures soon. One of the gals is painting our motto on one of the upper walls, so I'll take pics of that.
Finally...here is proof that spring is finally making it's way to Idaho. It's still cool, but things are starting to bloom!!
This is a small tree in our backyard. We live in brand new base housing, so the trees are fairly young.
Here is one in the front yard...isn't it pretty?!!
Hope you all have a fun, quilty weekend!! Keep your eye out for a special post showing all the secret projects that I have been working on!! I'll see you when I return from retreat!!
