Oregon Fun

OK, I just had to laugh when I saw this fish. So I clicked on the ENTER TO WIN link and entered the contest. Then I watched the robot fish video and THAT was really fun and weird. Oregon weird…so you’ve just got to watch it!

And I’m not a fly-fisherwoman, but I could be! I hear it’s very relaxing. Do you have to eat the fish? So many questions…

Here’s the skinny on the contest from the Travel Oregon website:

Time is running out! To celebrate our spring fishing season, we’re giving away an Oregon getaway that’ll unleash your inner angler.


The prize includes round-trip airfare for two on Alaska Airlines, a three-night stay at Sunriver Resort and two days of private fly fishing lessons for two. It might seem too good to be true, but don’t worry, this is the real deal. Just make sure you enter before June 30!


Under the Sea Quilt

Gerry B. made this for her brother…what a lucky guy! It’s a huge quilt and I love the way she placed the assorted sea creatures and plants. And the center medallion is a beautiful nautical addition; which of course had to have it’s own special quilting pattern. The rest of the quilt has “clouds,” “sea,” and “beach” quilting. Way to go Gerry! I hope he loves his quilt!

Sidelights Quilt for Piece by Piece Fabrics

Who doesn’t love fish? When I saw this fabric, I just knew it had to have tiny bubbles.  I thought about putting bubbles all over, but then realized I didn’t want people to think that the fish were passing gas! Ha! So the fish only got bubbles near their mouths. Whew! That might have been un-PC, eh?

Anyway, this quilt is hanging at Piece by Piece fabrics if you want to see it up close and personal!

Happy Quilting!
