May your day be filled with friends, family, wonderful food and gentle conversation! Happy Thanksgiving to all.
Where should all my quilts go? They need to get out in the world and sometimes the best way to do this is to donate them. And it makes me happy!
This is my third year supporting this organization with another quilt donation for their Docs for Ducks Fundraiser in Eugene, Oregon. Here is a little bit about the Cascade Medical Team:
Our mission is providing free healthcare and health education, where medical services are severely lacking along with supporting community development projects to the impoverished population in the Highlands of Guatemala. Our passion is changing lives.
Check out their website.
And happy quilting!
Long drive, but worth it! A day hike in the Three Sisters Wilderness area. Not many people on the trail in the fall, but we saw trail runners, a group of dads with kids, and some old folks (like us!). A beautiful weather day and there was only a little snow on the ground in spots, not bad for a late September day.
And then a wonderful lunch at the Elk Lake Resort. Resort is an interesting word that gets used a lot in Oregon. You can decide for yourself. But in any case, the food was good and very satisfying after miles on the trail.
We will be back!
Finally. My first backpacking adventure of the season. Yes, a bit late, but because of all the smoke, we wanted to wait until the air cleared. And it was worth the wait! Just a one-nighter, but a fantastic trial run.
Hopefully there will be more to come….but with snow coming, it may have to wait until next year.
