"When life gives you scraps......Make Quilts"

Sunday, February 19, 2012

I'm still here and having fun creating :-)

It's been a while since I blogged....it's been quite busy since the Fall with setting in, etc. but I am still having fun and going strong...and having the time of my life in my quilt studio.

Along with creating new patterns; quilting and making new projects; designing new projects...there seems to have been little time for other things..but I promise to get back on track and get back to blogging - because I miss being able to share with all of you - and hearing back from you - and finding out what's happening in your creative world.

The "KEEPING YOU IN STITCHES" column in our weekly paper is still going well so I am getting lots of practice towards my columnist skills. This is a wonderful way of sharing with so many local sewers and quilters....I LOVE IT!

My newest patterns:

"VINTAGE MINI-RUNNER" - darling quilt-as-you-go runner with fabulous hand applique motifs that are done in reverse applique - no raw edges and quite a beginner frienly project.

"MY LITTLE POSY PIN CUSHION" - my first wool applique pattern...and what a darling project...a super way to jump into wool applique - a fast and easy project.

Both of the above are also available in kit form.

Classes have been going well and along with workshops on the above projects and other fun creations, I have also been teaching a workship at the GARDEN CENTRE FLORIST shop which also has a quilt shop within the florist centre. Myself and 10 lovely ladies have been creating the most glorious display of log cabin quilts....ABSOLUTELY AWESOME. I can't wait to get photos of those and share them on here.

I hope that you are all having a great Winter!!!!! And please check back often....my blogging days are back !!!!!!!!

Quilty hugs to you all...
