All my life I have enjoyed sharing my passions with people and embrace the opportunity to share my God given talents and to receive the same from friends. I am so amazed at how large my circle of friends has become since I have joined the Charming Girls Quilt Club. It has been an adventure "sans pareil" (beyond compare)! I look forward to continuing to connect with all of you in the New Year and delight in knowing that there is a support system out there who will fill my life with serenity, laughter, kindness, hope and friendship.
I would like to take this opportunity to introduce to you our Charming Girl of the year... Michelle . I ask that you visit her blog and you will see why she is the recipient of this prestigious award. In her acceptance speech Michelle asked we join her in a toast to all the Charming girls and I toast to them for projects well done and over-the top support system. Thank you girls !
Now for the business at hand at the CGQC headquarters Marilyn (does not have a blog) has sent me this "eye candy" of her finished December projects.

And voilà, all done! Just gorgeous Marilyn! Thank-you for sharing.
It would not be fitting if I didn't acknowledge all the friends I have made outside the CGQC; from "blogland". Quilting has brought together so many wonderful girl friends and I really believe that it has become a quilt guild in itself. Sharing our ideas and craftsmanship has opened so may wonderful insights in my quilting. When you live in a small community the opportunity to learn new ideas in quilting can be limited but through "blogland" those limitations have been eliminated. The experience my sister and I had at a workshop at the other end of the Province with designer Karen Neary in the fall was indescribable and has opened a new adventure for a yearly get-together week-end for my sister and I. How true the world has become smaller and having all of you just a click away is very comforting.
As the New Year arrives may you find your hearts filled with new hopes and happy with love. May it opens up new horizons and bring you promises of brighter tomorrows. Have a great New Year 2010.
