Quilts & Karate
July 19, 2009 § 20 Comments
We just returned home from one of the best weekends that we’ve had in a long time. The purpose of the weekend was our karate dojo getting together with our sister dojo on the other side of the mountains. The karate seminar was good. We practiced our kicks (my knee didn’t quite make it through the whole class, but it was still good).
But the best part was hanging out with some amazing people, playing in the mountains, and tubing down the river. The host’s home was located a couple of miles out of town off a dirt road up in the mountains. Their garden is awesome and bigger than our house. And they had built the most amazing play structure for their kids. I was wishing I could be a kid again! It was blazing hot all weekend, which is perfect weather for floating on an inner tube down a mountain river made from melting snow run-off.
I can finally show you one of the projects I’ve been working on. Some time ago, Marianne and I did a little bartering. She made a lovely logo for my teeny weeny pattern company. And in turn, I made her a quilt. (I wanted it to be a semi-surprise for her.)
She requested a larger, brighter version of my other echinacea quilt. Word has it that she loves it!
