SIerra Mountain Quilt Guild... Oakhurst Ca.

My friend Diane Ward, was busy yesterday helping set up her display at Sierra Mountain Quilt Guild Show in Oakhurst at the Community Center.  Be sure to stop in and say hi, and see all the gorgeous quilts.  Of course, we have Venders, and lots of places to shop... and food, naturally. So much more.

SMQA has a Quilt Show every 2 years, and this is the first time in a long time we have been in town to attend... oh, yes I do have a few small pieces in the show also.. I work all day (10-4) tomorrow Sunday, so hope to see you!  Be sure to take a look at the Opportunity Quilt, a ticket will be picked Sunday .. I gave out all my postcards to I don't even have a photo... but believe me, I am going to buy more tickets tomorrow. All goes to a good cause, we make many people happy with the quilts that are given away during the year.. and too much more to add.  Moneys also is used to bring teaching speakers to the meetings, for us to learn new techniques.  We welcome new and experienced ladies and gentleman to our  first of the month Thurs. evening  guild meetings.

I am an artist with the gallery, and displaying, hand dyed scarves, a gourd, and a small wall piece besides the entry into the show.

Great opportunity to meet the artists. Madera Gallery is known for wonderful Receptions with yummies to munch on.

Lavendar and Jelly - Sunday at the Goddess Festival

Well, Sunday, I took my hubby to the Goddess Festival after Breakfast.  We walked around and looked at all the booths.  He does like doing that and asking questions about the artists work.. We met a man with Indian background that had the most beautiful paintings.  My hubby loves Eagles. We have had some interesting experiences with them. We discussed technique and he paints with an air brush.. they are beautiful, sorry did not get his card... Just wish we had some wall left in the house. Oh, yes, we are that point of not down sizing but clearing and organizing... more about that some other day.

This was a play day.. I asked where the Lavender Lady's Booth was and delighted to know she was there. She will also be at the Farmer's Market in Oakhurst on Thurs. evenings..

All right, yes, I bought some delicious Jam. The suggestion was to use the Spicy Lavender Apricot Jam on pork or chicken... First thing I did when we got home, defrost the pork... Oh, yes, very good!!! Next will try it on chicken, just the right amount of Spice.  The other jam we bought was Lavender, White Peach Jam.  So good for breakfast! Or a snack during the day on a cracker. Need a bigger jar.
In the same booth, Fantasy Oaks, Lavender soaps & Bamboo & Sugar Cane,, Goat Milk Soap.  They will be sharing a booth together at the Farmer's Market on Thurs. Evenings. Don't miss them.



Goddess in the Garden, and my Writer Friends!

I really should have taken more photos, but maybe you will put it on your list for visiting Goddess in the Garden next year in Coarsegold -Ca.
Many of my friends were in attendance, Jewelry Artists, Singers, Lavender Jams ; Jellies, Psychic Readers.. And yes, there were lots of men and women walking around and enjoying.. Of course, I did not list all, like music, fantastic looking tents, ladies all dressed up and lots to buy.
My focus was on my writer friends. I never sit around and chat, and I was invited to sit with them for awhile on Saturday.  What fun to see these amazing ladies talking about their books.  You have met my friend Vicki Thomas, who is writing a series, about a young boy and his very special experiences in the Mystical Forest. The Long Dark Cloak- She is an amazing artist also, painting the cover for the book.
This is a photo at the book signing. 
Vicki and Sandra Masters, Sandra is the writer of The Duke Series, and many more books. She has a Facebook, so look her up.  These are Spicy Romance books..   covers are pretty seductive.
Cora Ramos, was showing her books and telling about being a writer. On the card that she gave, "Dance the Dream Awake", she mentioned that she also writes Spicy books. Krista Lynn is the lady with the beautiful Indian Necklace, and she writes about Supernatural, Romance Suspense.  "The Canyon Series". She is also a Graphic Designer.  Wow, these ladies do it all.. Amazing.

They are doing book tours all over, so am sure you can find out where they will be next.. I can give you one clue, the Christmas Boutique in Yosemite Lakes Park. Get there early for parking close, always busy... But if you don't want to wait, Try Amazon, or check for their Facebook's and get on their list of new books coming out.  Lots to chose from.
