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.
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!
