Hello!

This is my latest finish - my Caravans Quilt.  I free motion quilted it with filled paisleys and quilted animals in the light blocks.

Nice to hear from you Andrea.

My avatar is my great grandson, Kye.  His cousins took a picture of him with their phone and added an app. so he would look like Winnie the Pooh. Haha!

I haven't posted anything for a very long time   I am nearly finished the log cabin quilt I was doing back in the spring and have only bought one piece of material I bought a piece of Canadian fabric with the Inuschuk on it to include in this quilt for out west.  I don't get much done these days   I am waiting for a call to go to the arthritic clinic  Old age is really great but i should not complain many much worse off than me This fall weather is lovely so far and hope it stays for a bit   Take care all and Happy Quilting

Life is indeed full of ups and downs. I am soon finished this school year. Our life this year has been busy with moving to St. Albert after living in our Edmonton house for 35 years. We have most of our new house settled after living in it for 6 months. There is still stuff in the garage to purge and some boxes on the main floor but mostly we are settled in and enjoying the back deck in spite of the crazy storms and mosquitoes

I am looking forward to the summer and some time to get more settled and hoping to purge more stuff out of the garage.  I also hope to get back quilting too.  I am sorry to read of the illnesses that people are challenged with these days. I hope that the treatment is readily available and that all make a good recovery.  Sending you all positive healing thoughts. Off to make some bracelets for year end presents. Warmest regards, Anna

Andrea, you are right.  We all go through some dark periods of life.  I try not to buy new fabric because I have a lot of pieces I just love and need to work on.  But I've run out of lights for a civil war sampler and I'll need to purchase some.  I wish CT had a collection like their previous Lasting Legacies.

Hi Lynda,

Your daughter has had a lot to endure and get through.  Wishing her a full recovery and a bright future.

My son has been in a very severe depression because of the disfigurement due to facial paralysis, his one eye being sewn shut, double vision in the other, and not being able to eat and speak well, and lack of depth perception.  He is in treatment for the depression.

I am sorry to hear about the illness on this site It seems no family is free of the disease. I pray that all will be fine and the treatments not so debilitatingas they once were excuse the spelling   I am now making a log cabin quilt for our daughter who lives in BC  Just using what I have trying not to buy fabric.I have been trying to clean out my room because I don't want my girls to have to do it  They say that clutter does not help to get things done I had a student for a number of years that continued to bring things every week and they didn't go home now they have and the room isn't so crowded In a neater room I hope to get more done LOLI love all the quilts that are on this site there just isn't enough time to do all      Take care all and I do hope the weather improves

Hi Elizabeth....Hoping that your son will come through this OK.  

My daughter had the very aggressive type of breast cancer which meant that she had to have extra treatments of chemo instead of the regular amount of chemo, then her surgery which left her two sizes smaller than she actually was before the cancer.  Then she had to go through the radiation.  She's fine up to this point but there's the 2 yr goal and then the 5 yr goal.  I don't think she's ready to go back to work yet but her insurance company is telling her that she is so she'll be returning to work within the next month.  We're all praying for her very full recovery and whomever else has this dreaded disease.  It's a nasty one for sure.  

On the other side of things.......all of these quilts are just gorgeous.  I haven't had much time to do any quilting this past couple of years but my sewing room is now under construction which means I'll finally be able to get at it this fall.  Gotta go as we're headed into Peterborough this morning.  Have a super, duper day everyone and always, always think positive.

Lovely quilts Elizabeth and Gracia - no matter the use, no matter the intricacy, any quilt is a work of art!

Comment by Elizabeth Phillips on June 27, 2017 at 10:29am

Oh Gracia, what a beautiful quilt!  It looks so complicated with the lovely applique and all those little squares.  I am so intimidated to try making a quilt like yours.
