Earlier this week I attended a Gammill retreat over by the airport. I got in at the last minute as I just happened to find out about it through one of the forums that I follow. What a great learning experience for me. I was in the handguided class. Only about 12 of us in there. We each got a machine to practice on! The Statler group was so much bigger. I think about 100 in that group. Great to network with some of the Gammill users in this Northwest area. Andrew the dealer out of Wenatchee is such a wealth of information. Great teachers. Great organizers. A great retreat! I didn't take many pictures as I was too busy learning.....

This week we headed to Wallowa Lake for a fall camping trip with some friends.
It was my first visit to this area in Oregon. Beautiful part of this country.

In Spokane with my sisters this weekend. Yesterday the air was full of smoke . Very hazey. Emergency warnings going off on the phone to warn of dust wind and smoke for poor visibility . The clouds came over yesterday but the small amount of rainfall was pitiful. Today the rain is a welcome sight. My sisters teacher friend needs to be ready to evacuate but also ready to start school this week if that should happen. Maybe no true relief from these fires til the snowfall.
After a trip to the quilt store we are sewing some too. I have had my eye on these binding kits for a while now. Time to sew some up!
These are the three we made....
And some charity quilting going on too!
A cute baby quilt ready to go where the need is.
My flight was cancelled and so I have a few extra hours with my sisters.☺️
