So much to much done!

We have been very productive this week.

Larry has been getting both motorcycles ready for our ride east. In the middle of the 'simple' maintenance he has also (with the help of Fred) crafted a new, shorter antenna for his bike and performed his magic on the motor home.

I have now a new front tire, the oil is changed, the trailer has grease packed in the bearings and he installed Sirius radio on my trike! Awesome.

I have completed (?) the packing. Now all I have to do is gather all the motorcycle gear we will need for all weather possibilities.

I finished a windshield cover for Larry's Goldwing. I also finished an apron for our friend Pat and and apron for a little girl. I had been commissioned to make a child's apron before Easter. I made two so the lady could choose. One slight problem - they were in a container in the car before we went to Nebraska and now they have simply disappeared. After looking high and low I decided I'd just make a new one and leave the discovery of the others to a high power!

More Sewing

I took time out from everything else and made a lap quilt and an apron for a friend's birthday.

The apron embroidery designs represent things important to our friend.

Busy time.

We traveled to Nebraska as a surprise for Mother's Day. Leave it to us to find snow in May! We then drove to Montana to visit with more relatives. The weather in Montana was summer like!

After two weeks we headed home in the rain. I think we had 2 days before we drove to Sacramento to take care of some business. Three days later we rode the bikes to Williams for a possible sale of the Valkyrie...I think it has now been 4 days since we had to leave town.

I haven't made any time to sew until today. This table runner is from a pattern from Shelley's Quilts in Kelseyville, CA. I have other patterns I prefer.

Now we are getting ready for our next adventure - motorcycling to Des Moines, IA via Bryce Canyon, Zion, Four Corners, Albuquerque, NM. I'll be blogging whenever we have internet access. We are really looking forward to riding with our friends.

Bailey and Shadow

These photos were taken by Bailey's owner, Jo....Bailey was enjoying sniffing Shadow, but Shadow got tired of it and crawled up on my shoulder.

Bailey is an awesome boy and Shadow was a smart little dog.

I think Bailey's head weighs more than all of Shadow.

Mother-in-Law Quilt

This is the quilt I made for Larry's mother as a Mother's Day gift this year. One date is wrong....but I picked at it and doctored it so it is now correct.

If it wasn't for my new friend Lisa C I'd still be working on it. Lisa has an awesome quilting machine at her home and kindly let me use it to quilt the layers together.

This is a green back heron....never seen one before.
