A blog site to share my trip towards becoming the quiltsmith I want to become.

Autumn is on the doorstep

I can’t believe it is mid September! I am breaking in the new hip I had installed in July and just back to driving my car again this week; and I was able to drive to the first SPQ (Sherwood Park) Guild meeting last Thursday. I got re-enthused for all my quilting project and can hardly wait for my new Millenium long arm to start quilting up a storm.

Since my last post, I attended Western Retreat at Sylvan Lake and Big Sky Retreat at Olds in June, so was able to work on some quilts the have been long in the making. I took a thread painting class from Shirley Paterson, and a Jacket class from Linda Beattie.

I have a ton of pictures to share and new techniques I learned; so I will start sharing them with you on this blog over the next few months; if I can tear myself away from my new Millenium. What shall I call this new treasure?

Send me your ideas!
