Basketball Quilt

Michaels Quilt

 It seems as though I've been working
on this quilt all summer. My Nephew a
freshmen in high school plays on
4 basketball leagues, guess one can assume
he likes Basketball.
The Quilt is 65x81 inches. As long as
he quits growing, he's 6'4" it should cover him
pretty well.

I was hoping to find a better fabric match where I used the Black fabric, to me it looks too much like halloween. But then again what better color to use on a quilt for a High schooler than Black.

Next time I will show you the quilt for his sister Laura. Thanks for stopping in.

Honesty deserves Recognition

Last night Todd, the owner of A Roof Life In Oregon came to my neighbors house to give her an estimate for cleaning her roof. Upon seeing him on her roof I asked if he would give me a bid for my house also while he was here.
I thought our roof also needed cleaned because I could see some moss on our roof in a few places plus it's been 2 years since we last had it treated.
Todd comes over and goes up on the roof and comes back down quickly, I thought I had a big problem! No..he had good news..saying the patches of moss on the roof was dead and that I'd be wasting my money to have my roof treated at this point in time. Can you believe it? I was so stunned, you hear all the time about businesses out to get you. Here is a Man who could have easily gotten a job cleaning my roof. But no he was honest and told me we didn't need it.
Not the end of the story yet!
Beings there was a few patches of Moss he offered to go back up and scraped it off, and while he was up there he cleaned out the front gutters which were full of moss. All toll he spent an hour and a half just before dark on a Saturday night up on my roof cleaning the moss and gutters. Now for the incredible part..He wouldn't charge me or let me pay him. I offered him some very huge ripe Tomatoes from the garden and he was happy receive them.
So if you need your roof cleaned or need moss prevention spray call Roof Life of Oregon @ 503-925-0125. A honest company to do business with.
Thank you.


It has been awhile, life has a way of setting up a course that leads down a path that wasn't planned or intended.
My Long arm business is coming along fine although I haven't been able to promote it as much as I'd planned due to the situation a my other job. My other job was only suppose to be 2 days a week....well it's been a 5 day a week job all summer with no end in site. I could have easily quit but with my DH illness now it really not an option.
So what have I been doing? Besides reading and keeping up with everyone elses blogs, I really love to see what everyone else is doing. I've been making lots of quilts and quilt kits out of the Fabric I showed you awhile back. I intended to have a web site by now so I could sell my kits on-line. But for now I will just sell my kits to my Studio customers. Later today I should be able to get pictures and will post them later.

My next post will be about a business here in Oregon that truely deserves recognition.
Thanks for stopping by.
