It’s Beverly Hillbilly Bill

I am laying in my hotel bed thinking about what I have done in the last 10 days or so…here is a quick list….did a trunk show/lecture and taught 2 workshops(32 students) for Salt Creek quilt guild in Hinsdale IL…flew to CA, met Nick there who drove all our “stuff”, set up and vended at the Road2Califonia Q show and taught 2 night workshops(49 students)during the 4 day show. Then was driven to Temecula CA by Bill with my quilts strapped in the bed of his pickup…

Where I taught another workshop at Quilter’s Coop (23 students) and a quick trunk show of my quilts last night…in a few hours I will be renting a car and driving about 8 hours to Yuba City to do it all over again for Vally quilt guild…Can’t think of a better job to have… I love all the Quilter’s I meet they are so appreciative of everything I have to offer them…even though the girls yesterday didn’t believe I made all my items in my trunk show myself…Now think about this for a minute….i love making quilts & wool projects why would I give THAT JOB away…it is the best part of what I have to do!!!!

here are some of my wonderful students…just goofing off…lol…now here are their beautiful faces…

See you in Yuba City soon!

I live on a lake in beautiful Butte Des Morts, WI. I have three sons: Lance (forever 29), Luke 33, Jake 32, and two grand-babies, Little Man and O-Bug. I've been married to the love of my life Nick, since 1998 when we started our crazy adventure together! I am a quilter, rugger, and gardener. I also love to cook when I get the chance. Thanks for visiting and supporting Primitive Gathering Quilt Shop where I try to bring you the best Moda fabrics and wool projects anywhere!

  1. Oh what fun! I love their project and envy your job???? Maybe, maybe not. I’ve been working on a bag this morning for an auction where profits go to breast cancer research. Still in jamies, working non stop all morning.
    Sore throat and feel cruddy but other 1/2 has the other cataract surgery tomorrow. Gotta keep workin!

  2. Wow Lisa, I don’t know how you do it all. It is great that you have Nick to share a lot of these adventures with you. Have fun!!

  3. Thank you Lisa for posting my quilt on your blog! Mine is the Home & Harvest quilt. It is the one with the big house in the middle with the white picket fence! I am honored. Denise

  4. I lived in San Diego area for almost 8 yrs and use to go camping in Temecula when there was still open land and not so built up as it is today with new subdivisions. Loved the area and great places to eat tucked back in some of the canyon towns. Can’t get any better than a high desert in the morning and they a snowball fight in teh afternoon if you are in the higher elevation. Enjoy CA.

  5. Hi Lisa, I think you should show your students how fast you can stitch your wool pieces. You are the fastest I’ve ever seen any one stitch. I’m sure everyone is enjoying their classes with you and your booth at the quilt show. You & Nick are lucky to enjoy the quilting business together, great combo. 😉 Bring Spring back to Wis. with you!!!
