What has been Happening?

There is not enough room on one post  to write about everything that has been happening. Some good things and some not so good things. But in the end prayers were answered and the outcome was great.
My 93 year (young) mom was hospitalized but has returned home and she is doing well!

I was finally able to attend the Bernina embroidery club. It is a two hour drive and this winter there was always bad weather on the days it was being held.
I really enjoyed the project this month. 
"Vintage Cut Work". 
Of course my friend Elaine and I cannot go to the Valley without checking things out at Avonport Fabric Centre and  

 oh! yes, some fabric had my name on it ! or rather had my sister's name on it. In an earlier post I shared how she loves aprons, well this fabric is just perfect for aprons. I saw the pattern on my friend, Cindy' post a while back and I ordered it..
 Lily Apron

And the back...

But ....
it will be a surprise for my sis when we get to visit.  

 I also have been working on a Mystery Quilt in the guild
where we have to make a quilt using a 
and at our 3rd anniversary party we will unveil our quilts. I won't be able to post too much about this quilt because it is to be a secret from all the members until the Quilt parade in April next year. I know some of the members check my blog so it would be telling if I post about it!  I guess the bottom line is it is a secret for all my blog supporters as well.  

Speaking of anniversary..

today we celebrated our 2nd anniversary.  Already two years and 97 members! Amazing!!!!
You can check out the event on Face book


  1. Congratulations! Wow! Almost 100 members. That is wonderful.

  2. Congratulations on your guild's success. If only I lived a bit closer...

  3. Wow that is a lot of members in such a short time, we had our tenth anniversary and we have just 72 members . Love the apron pattern.

  4. I really do love this apron. I have seen it NUMEROUS times at sewing/quilitng functions worn by the booth operators/owners. Don't forget to make yourself one too!!
    Joan, is it far to go to "any" quilt shop? Do you buy much fabric on line?
