Perfect Timing

I had mail last evening... and just in time for something new to read and enjoy in this blustery winter weather,   
 Karen Neary's new book . 
It is full of beautiful projects and ideas .
Love it! ( J'aime beaucoup) 
 and what a surprise to see my runner published in it! 
I am so honored. 
The one next to mine is one of  member (of the Guild) Alisa Aymar  who has attended Karen's workshops.   

Speaking of Karen Neary, When she came to visit the guild she had given us one of her beautiful kits.
 and member Marnie (who loves paper piecing)  made it for us .

Great job Marnie!
( J'aime) 

I have started the new program in the guild. I call it Sewing Labs and the first session was a great success.  
Everyone is attentive to their project  which was a mug mat. 
The next time we have a Sewing Lab we will be doing a Valentine Project 
Round Valentine Topper by Barb Gaddy. 
Pattern available on Craftsy.com    

My Garden Sunflower Quilt is back from the quilter 
 Designed by Cheryl Benner
 Yes. it is that time of the year when I donate a quilt to our church in memory of my dad. 
 The quilting is perfect... by Marguerite Melanson 
A very cheerful quilt that would be perfect for a cottage quilt! Tickets will go on sale at
 Expo-Quilt Show 
Dates this year from July 27th to 31st 

 Hope everyone is warm and safe on this winter January evening!
It is always warm in a sewing room!  
Happy Sewing! 


  1. Thanks, Joan. I am honoured to have two special friends as part of the book; I thank you both for your contributions.
    Marnie's Maritime Beauty is fabulous!! Please tell her what a great job she did - wow!

  2. I LOVE the sunflower quilt!! And how nice that you have new reading material in time for the storm. Hope you're staying warm and cozy! I'm headed for a beach in FLorida to spend the day.

  3. Beautiful quilt! Maybe the girls and I can take a road trip and attend your show this year! Wouldn't that be fun!
