Updated: travel and quilty errands

I started down to Montana on May 27th about 8 hours after I closed up my Middle School classroom for the year. There’s no moss growing on this rolling stone!

The m/v Tustumena is an older ferry (at least about as old as me!) that had just returned to service after a little fix-up. I live on a little hill with a narrow drive so it was easy to repack the car at the dock. After a quick 9 hour ride I jumped off in Homer and raced up to Anchorage and then to my niece in Wasilla. 

I spent the night with her and her babies. Sweet kids! I also dropped off the pillows to the twins. 

One night then up to Fairbanks with a quilty errand… To deliver to Jack his Rocky Mountain Bear Claw quilt. 


Success! My heart swells when I give away one of the quilts I’ve made. This was especially wonderful because he really loved it. 


Then on to Fairbanks and the last quilt drop in Alaska for the moment… A Southern Belles pillow and Ice Crystals quilt for Molly. 

I love how excited she is!
On the 31st my sister showed up and we drove nearly to Whitehorse. A quick delivery of 10 quilts for Fort McMurray victims was in order before heading down the road. A quick note: the Kodiak Bear Paw Quilt Guild donated 6, Martha Branson donated 1 completed/1 to be quilted/1 extra backing, Tina Fairbanks donated 1, Lindsey Cassidy donated 1 and I donated 1 as well. What an awesome handoff!
