walking on air

The best news is we have sold our home in Fairbanks. Whew!! It took 6 months to do so and we dropped the price way down but that's ok--a young family is buying it and we hope they will be happy there. DH and I raised our children there and we built that house out of pocket. It has a beautiful view and way up on a hill outside of Fairbanks.

Since we have gotten the news and everything is a go, I have had a hard time concentrating. But I got some pillowcases made today. I started putting up a quilt on the Grace Frame too, to be quilted. I think I will keep this one too and maybe even enter it in the fair this summer. It has different batik birds in the middle of the squares. I just made it up as I went along. I will post some pix for you all to see my Grace set up. I have one of me working on it but it shows my double chin too much so not sure I will ever post that photo--LOL.

I will combine this with quilting and my experiences living in Alaska.

My name is Fran but some call me Franie so I named my blog that. I live in Anchor Point, Alaska, which is approximately 200 miles south of Anchorage and right on the Cook Inlet and Kachemak Bay. We just moved here in August of 2006, but we had been summering here for about 5 years. We lived in Fairbanks, Alaska for 28 years.

My favorite thing to do is quilting so I am hoping to share both Alaska and quilting with my friends.
