Saturday I went to a special event at Aurora Colony in Aurora, OR. A friend of mine had bought a ticket for this event and then was unable to go, so she gave it to me. It was a special day with Emma, who was a pioneer arriving in Oregon in 1853. Jane Kirkpatrick, author of the Change and Cherish Historical Series about Emma was there for a book signing, tour of the colony and speech about her books. Besides the Change and Cherish series, Jane has written numerous other historical novels and I have enjoyed reading some of them. I plan to read all her books and do recommend them to you. Here is her web site.

It was wonderful to spend time with one of my sons and my oldest GD on Mother's Day (and of course DH). It was the first Mother's Day in several years that I have actually been with one of my sons. He took us out to eat at the McMinneman Hotel in McMinnville, OR and we ate in the restaurant the roof of the hotel. It was cloudy, but very pleasant.

My garden is in and is happy after a couple rainy days! Happy quilting and gardening!
