Deer Country Quilts Newsletter



  October 2016


So is it Christmas yet?? September just flew by.  This month we are doing 2 weekends of retreats.  I am on a board for a non-profit pregnancy center here in Seeley Lake and we have been planning a fund raising banquet in a short amount of time. That will be next week! I just spent a week in Billings visiting my parents.  My dad has been having some medical issues. I went to a batman birthday party for my 4 year old grandson complete with a real life batman! We have season football tickets for the University of Montana.  Hunting season is about to start.  Weekends are pretty much taken up!  Then it will be Thanksgiving and then Christmas is just like the next day isn't it?  I love the fall but it is exhausting! It is all very fun though.  One day at a time right?
Happy Quilting, Pam
