I finished the first tutorial for Bridle Path and posted it in Google Docs so it will be easy for you to access and print.
Click HERE where you can download the tutorial. I will also create a tab at the top of the blog at some point in time so you can always have it at your fingertips.

It's been a while since I've posted, so here is a quick update on what's been happening since my last post. My Cheddar and Coal II fabric by Pam Buda for Marcus Fabric arrived, and I cut up 216 yards of fabric to make adorable bundles for my upcoming retreats.
This fabric is perfect for Fall projects. My mind is going a thousand miles an hour just thinking about all of the quilts I can make.
Now, we are working on making bundles from the Lily's Locket fabric line.
Last week was a tough week for the Wilder grandsons. Our youngest grandson, Kade, broke his collarbone when he crashed his mountain bike in the Santa Cruz mountains when he was riding with his dad. He had to walk out 1-1/2 miles to get back to the truck and go to the hospital.
As my girlfriend Paula says, I'm busier than a one-armed paper hanger. I'm working on all of the tutorials for my Bridle Path pattern. I'll be posting the first set of instructions this week on the blog. I've been taking pictures of every single step which takes time. I'm creating all of the step-outs for class at the same time.
I'm still adjusting to my summer schedule with the start of water aerobics. I leave the cabin every morning at 7:45am to swim laps with my kick board for 45 minutes before water aerobics begin. So, I'm in the pool for an hour and a half every day. It's the one thing I do for myself, and boy does this old body enjoy and need the workout! It's the only exercise I can do which doesn't make me hurt. It's been warm and the water feels so good.
So that's it in a nutshell. Mr. Joe and I keep busy and active during the day and enjoy sitting out on the deck at night visiting with friends. Life is good.

The UPS delivery driver had a cart full of quilted goodies when he arrived at my cabin this week. The order I placed for Lily's Locket by Pam Buda with Marcus Fabrics arrived.
