| June 2015
|Summer seems to be in full swing here! I have been having fun this last month playing with all my grandkids! In June we have birthdays and anniversaries to celebrate, fishing, and cabin time with friends and family. I love to spend time at our cabin. There is no cell service, no internet, and no TV service (there is a VCR for movies) so we take walks, shuttle the raft up and down the river for fly fishing adventures, and play board and card games. I also take projects to work on with no distractions,except the trees, river, sunshine, etc... I hope you are enjoying the long daylight hours and warm temperatures! Happy Quilting! Pam
Don't forget the Big Sky Shop Hop starts this Friday and runs through June 27th. Grab a passport and head on out to the many shops around Montana.
