Under Construction

Winter is over and now I am ready to move on-both in terms of the cottage and winter living in Big Bear Lake! I will now be posting only artistic endeavors and activities on this blog! Later, I will be establishing a separate blog for sharing our new life in Big Bear-our progress with restoring Whimzy, our 1940's cottage, and our adventures and off road thrills into the wilderness areas.

There are many upcoming dollmaking events coming this summer and fall both down below at Piecemakers in Costa Mesa and here in Big Bear Lake. I will post a list with all the classes, demos, and upcoming shows soon.

However, the next class will be at Patchworks in Big Bear Lake called Be Mine Raggedy Angel. This class will be Saturday and Sunday, July 10-11, from 10:30-4:00. You can contact Karen, the owner, or one of her helper bees at 909-866-9695 if you are interested. The cost is $60 with no kit fee and she has the minimal supply list. All of these supplies are available at the shop!

There are lots of places-bed and breakfasts as well as hotels- close by. If you come, you can mention Patchworks at Inspirations and you will receive a discount. It has wonderful amenities including an open work area for quilters and other hobbyists. We loved the Mansion, a little pricey but a lovely B & B. Another friend stayed at Eagles Nest, a lovely B & B, with lots of space in the main lodge to work with a great gourmet breakfast. There is another B & B on Moonridge that I see everyday, Apples, but no one I know has stayed there yet. There is a Best Western on Moonridge also. All of these are close by to the shop and you can find all of these online!

Come up and enjoy the beautiful mountains with all of its fresh air and scenic vistas. It is sunny and warm everyday. The village is a wonderful place to shop so stay over an additional day if you can to enjoy the local haunts! Hope to see some of you soon in Big Bear Lake!
