HI Cora, I was named after a friend of my Mom and Dad's, then later there was another Cora in our church. She was in her 70's when I was just a child. We always said, "Hi Cora" to each other and felt a special bond. It certainly is an old name. I like your name, Cornelia too.
I must admit quilting is a challenge. I find the hardest part trying to decide on color combinations. I find the stippling a lot of work...but, every time I do it, it gets easier. I imagine a long arm machine would make things more interesting, but, my old Husqvarna will have to do!
There is a group called Quilting Canadians. Please join us. Click on the "groups" to find us. When you get to the Quilting Canadians page you will see a discussion for the block of the month. It is called Reach for the Stars. Some of us are also taking part in an online mystery that started this month. It is hosted by Prairie Quilt Mercantile in Alberta.
