The Last of 2010..

I must say this year has been a bit hectic for us with some very unpleasant events but faith kept telling me things could be worst and I counted my blessings every day......plus four beautiful grand-daughters.

Some of those blessings are the wonderful friends I made through Blog land ! I know my blogging was sporadic this year but I do hope to be more dedicated in 2011. As mentioned the challenges were plentiful but being able to connect with some of you via e-mail was so uplifting and I thank you all for the support I received from you throughout the year! Sending you all a big girlfriend hug♥♥♥

Some wonderful events took place also and those are the ones I like to blog about!
Like meeting my friend Michelle http://thel7quiltco.blogspot.com/ in person and enjoying a wonderful dinner together in Arkansas ... (Both Gerald and I top this as the number 1 highlight of our vacation to Texas.)...

Our trip to Amherst to attend Karen Neary's workshop at the Fibre Festival was without a doubt a very special event.

The project Meadow Song
was exciting to do and I enjoyed working in all the different patterns she choose to make this quilt so exquisite... Pinwheels, appliqués and YoYos...

All put together .. let me introduce you to ....
the Meadow Song by designer Karen Neary....
I made it with "In the Pink 11 by Henry Glass "

published in the Spring 2010 issue of the
and on ***...the front cover...***http://quiltersconnection.ca/

I pray for the best for our world in 2011. Even though there may be "stress-ors" along the way I know I can always find serenity in a piece of fabric, cut it and piece it back together to make a quilt... and that I will have continued support and inspiration from all of you;

and can count on your guidance if the blocks don't always fit!



  1. God always provides, it's good you have your faith. I so enjoy your blog, and look forward to seeing more of your family and lovely projects in 2011. Your Meadow Song quilt is gorgeous!!!!
