Quilt Show Starts Today

If you're in the area of Port Townsend, Washington come on over to our quilt show - starts today at 10 a.m. and runs through Saturday until 5.  At the Jefferson County Fairgrounds in Port Townsend, admission a $5 donation.  Over 150 quilts, country store, demos, vendors.  Really great Pacific Northwest food available on site, and free parking.  What's not to like!  We're a small but active guild, and would love to have you come and see our work.

What a difference a year makes!

Dear fellow quilters,

As you will recall, last year at this time I was frantically quilting the 15 Christmas quilts in my year long project and hardly had time to breathe, let alone do anything else.  Well, 2014 has been radically different and as I look back on 2013, I am amazed at how different two years can…

Chattanooga Quilt Show

I had a superb time at the Chattanooga Quilt Show, my first quilt show in the USA and my first retail therapy for the longest time.  Even so, I spent very little, partly because there was so much on offer.  A man tried to sell me a BIG long-arm quilting machine but I explained that it wouldn't fit into my boat.  So I bought a few fat quarters to make a journal quilt of the Blue Ridge Mountains, complete with a bear.

Then CPS made a surprise visit and saw that they had food and the house was clean. They have been working with…

Quilt Two!

Hi quilters!  This is quilt number two of my "ten quilts by December" challenge and I loved working with these colors! Peach is a color I rarely use and now I wonder why?  It's kind of delicious looking. I kept thinking about ice cream and cobbler and all things that are sweet and creamy the whole time I worked on it.  I have the same reaction to Christmas fabrics but there's more Allspice involved..lol.. Anyway, my co-worker has a 1930's theme for her nursery so who better to show up for…

Back to the blog ...finally!

The last time I was on here Nov. 2012. Wow! Time really does fly! In January 2013 I moved to New Mexico and started a new career as a Nursing Home Administrator. Not only did I move, but lived here the first year and a half without husband or animals. I am delighted to say, I am no longer alone and have settled in together quite nicely. In fact, Tuesday will be our 30th anniversary! 

I have to say during that time alone, I spent many hours being comforted by discovering new quilt…
