Sunriver Quilt Show recap

Last weekend I had a booth in the Sunriver Quilt Show, at the Sunriver resort in OR. I had lots of fun. Thank you to everyone who came out to visit me, say Hi, view my quilts, and purchase designs. I appreciated seeing each and every one of you, and I loved talking to all the different quilters/embroiders that stopped by my booth.

My Mom hung out in my booth with me all day (aren't Mom's the best?) so I was able to sneak out to admire all the quilts.  They were amazing!! Here are some of  (okay a LOT of) the photos that I took on my walk around the show. I hope you find them as inspiring as I did. Enjoy!!

Smith Rock

My husband loves hiking like I love sewing. So I got a pair of hiking poles and decided to join him. Thursday night we hiked at Smith Rock right here in Terrebonne, OR. It's a very popular place for rock climbers. 

 I'm not gonna lie parts of it were a bit challenging, I fell twice but didn't get hurt. And strangely I had fun. Look at that, I tried something new and I liked it...maybe my husband has been onto something all these years. The views were amazing. Here are some of the photos that we took. 

Happy Weekend - get out and try something new! You never know what you'll learn/discover. It could be amazing.

Make your own adhesive stabilizer

Today's Tuesday Tip, is about making your own adhesive stabilizer.

About Me

My Photo
Welcome to Calico Cali Designs! I’m Kat, digitizer and sewing enthusiast. I learned how to digitize in 2010 from master digitizer Walter Floriani…it was an amazing experience. Soon instead of spending my time sewing, quilting and stitching out other people’s embroidery designs, I was sewing, quilting and stitching out my own embroidery designs. I created this blog, not only as a place to share my embroidery designs, but also as a place to share all the things I make, sew, paint, embroider, and create. You’ll see posts about my life, my studio, patterns I’ve sewn and products I’ve tested. I hope you enjoy reading these posts as much as I’ve enjoyed creating them. Follow me on twitter . Hugs!! – Kat
