Teaching in Moro

Last week I taught a class in Moro, Oregon. Moro is a city in Sherman County, and is the smallest county seat in Oregon. To paint you a picture, the population was 337 at the 2000 census. The drive along the Columbia River Gorge was was beautiful, and after turning off onto highway 97, I was delighted with the rolling expanses of fields with windmills used to generate power.

The class was held at "Lisa's in Stitches" quilt shop (on the right side of the street above), and it was small and intimate (see the link to her store under websites to visit). I had a wonderful, relaxing time. The students (and other citizens who stopped by) were so warm and friendly ~ I can't wait to go back! My greatest disappointment was forgetting my digital camera (I managed to remember the charger, though!). I had to stop en route and pick up a disposable camera. The photo quality is lacking - I'll be posting class photos to my picturetrail site shortly (www.picturetrail.com/blueherondolls) The photo of downtown Moro (above) is a stock photo from Wikipedia.

Looks like home! Lisa, Kathy and I have all finished our dollies and are gearing up to start another Viola Ruth now. Thanks for your lovely note and for Jan's breathing aparatus too. How thoughtful of you. We already miss you here in Moro, Deanna. Can't wait to have you back.

Love the blog. We had a wonderful experience at your Moro class. Learned so much. Three more Viola Ruth's are underway in my studio. Hope we have you back soon.

Thanks, Kathy! I'm so glad you had a good time. Be sure to send me photots of your new dolls, and I'll add them to my picturetrail.

Can't wait to go back,
