More of summer 2013

Some more beauties at the quilt show..
This one and the one below, belongs to Kaaren from 

Absolutely G O R G E O U S
Yoyos!! This next one is very old and in perfect shape. When this family moved into a new house in 1942 they found this quilt in a trunk in their new home.

There is no tag on it to indicated just how old it is or by whom it was made. This is when I realize the importance of labeling my quilts, as they will be antiques some day   :(  

This next one certainly has the Acadian flavor
It is off to Ottawa.
And this one so scrappy..my taste.. 
I love it .. it was exquisitely hand quilted 
And another one of those that makes one drool 
All hand appliqued and hand quilted.

There were many more beauties but I did not get to ask for  permission to post their work on my blog. Next year you will all have to come to see this work at its best ... "in person" . Attendance at the quilt show was amazing. We would have an average of 120 visitors a day. It was so much fun to chat with all these people . One noon hour I came home for lunch from the quilt show and hubby noticed I was quiet and not very talkative... I just responded I had talked to over 60 different people in the span of the morning . I was literally all talked out! He was amazed (LOL)  :)  

The quilt show will be featured in the Saltscape magazine. A few members of the Guilde Acadienne de Clare  were interviewed also.   

So when we hit the beaches and sand dunes of PEI 
I had lots to say. 

Grand-père and Miguel 

I told you we had a Tufts Family Reunion 
Here everyone is setting up for the family picnic. 
The girls, (sisters and sisters-in-law) entertained with a few songs.

There were some sad times as well. 
 Our parish Priest Pere Hyacinthe was transferred to a community in Gatineau Quebec. I gave him a quilt I had made as a parting gift . We miss him! 

 My to-do list for sewing  is growing and I look forward to the fall so we can get into a routine. The Fibre-Arts Festival in Amherst will soon be here and again this year my sister, Simone and friend Elaine will be going and will attend Karen Neary's workshop  yea! :)  This year in Amherst there will bean added attraction ..
 Mrs Pugley's Emporium  :)
