Mystery Quilt (2014 – 2015)

Joyce, from our Westside Quilters Guild presented a mystery clue each month starting last September.  I used a Kona white as my background and then scraps from my stash for the rest.  The quilt finishes at 60″ square and I was able to use a favorite fabric for the border and back.

The flowers are from Farmhouse Flowers here in Hillsboro.  I get two baskets for Mother’s Day from the guys.  They always look amazing!

Thursday, Charles (USMC son) and I backpacked to Yocum Ridge in the Mt. Hood Wilderness.  We are planning on hiking the Timberline Loop (circles around Mt. Hood) next week, so this was a good opportunity to see if we could work together.  It went perfect!  I think the last time we shared a tent was when he was in fifth grade and he’s now 6’4″.
Charles Bear Grass The bridge over the Sandy River washed out last year killing a man.  It has not been replaced so now there is a log jam that can be used to cross.  I am not fond of river crossings, but this one wasn’t too bad.

    Looks like another great day of hiking. You are much braver than I am – I would have turned around at the “log bridge”. Go, you!
