Monet and Picasso are still alive and well!

Yes, Marj and I discovered yet another “art” shop in Whitefish, Montana, Stumptown Art Studio!  Here, we have spent hours cutting and fusing glass and Marj even did some creative painting on pottery.  The workers in the shop just kind of roll their eyes now as we mosey on in for our third or fourth time!  LOL

Here are pictures of Marj’s finished ceramic and glass projects.  She did a beautiful job hand painting the designs on the ceramics.

Marj has been busy while home as well.  She loves to crochet.  In this pic, she is working on a dish cloth but she also made the throw which she is using to stay warm!

I am the queen of bowl cozies…..hard to imagine that I forgot to put any in the motorhome!  So, here I am making a few.  If you haven’t ever used a bowl cozy, you must.  No more burned fingers as you eat a steaming bowl of soup – and no more freezing hands as you enjoy that big bowl of ice cream.  We LOVE them!  In the last picture, I’m working on a table runner for my sewing center in the motorhome.  It’s made by wrapping clothesline with 1 inch strips of fabric, then zig zigging as you go – look closely at the photo to get an idea of what it will look like finished.  

Almost every evening, I try to work a bit more on my needlepoint project.  Sometimes, I’m just too lazy to pick it up or I spend time on the blog.  Working on the blog can be a bit frustrating at times due to inadequate campground wifi.  But as you can see, I keep plugging away.  Progress is progress, no matter how fast…..right?

Of course, I’m still managing to sneak into a quilt shop here and there.  The first one is located in Kalispell, Montana and ranks among some of the very best!  The second was in Polson and was a fun shop with very helpful sales people.  Every shop has it’s own personality!

I love playing with glass fusion and I just couldn’t stop myself!  Here are the results of many hours of great entertainment!

In case you can’t tell, one is an abstract of people on a beach, one is sea oats on a beach and the last is a mountain scene with wild flowers in the foreground.

That’s all for now, folks……Happy Trails!

  1. You guys are amazing with all your talents!! I definitely didn’t get those genes!! Thankful you are my sisters and you have been generous gifted many things throughout the years!! Appreciate your talents and wonder where mine are!😘🤔❤️❤️


    1. Hi Mary – I was thinking the other day about your dad doing needlepoint and I’m certain I have memories of that. Was one piano seat black and the other burgundy?? And did your mom send them out to be finished as a piano seat? I seem to remember that she told me she didn’t want to “mess them up” as your dad had worked so hard on them. I also seem to remember your mom saying that your dad was very particular – that he made sure every stitch wasn’t twisted before pulling the thread completely through. I was pretty young when he did those so I’m wondering if my mind is making those things up or are they actual memories??


  2. These are great Peg and marge–Keep up the amazing talent work! On another note did you guys visit Sheridan Wyoming yet? there is a place called Kings ropes and they make ropes for the rodeo’s etc. People come from all over the world to see their ropes and they have a really neat museum that you can tour plus you can watch them make the ropes for the cowboys. Just throwing that out if your looking for a day trip. Thanks for posting these as it sure is fun to ride along on your adventure.


  3. Rich says,..I wonder what the men are doing all this time while you girls are having fun?? I think you are both like your mom…talented!! Enjoying so much watching!! Keep it up love,a.r.
