Jane nice to hear from you. It's a small world on the computer. If your ever coming through and have the time to stop at Marden's, you will find a great array of name brand fabrics a lot cheaper then in a Fabric Store. They have Thimbleberries, which I love. Not all their fabrics are big names but they have allot of fabric to choose from. If you call ahead with 6 or more people in a group they give a 10% discount. Can you see a Shop Hop in your future. lol
The challenge is out, lets see how many of us can join the wonderful new campaign called Stitching for Pink !!! Starts today until 30 October. Its gonna be so much fun with 10 projects to complete. Come on Embroiderers lets unite and join the fight against Breast Cancer !!!
Hi there. SBS is shorthand for Sylvia's Bridal Sampler. The last thing I needed was another quilt project since I have plenty unfinished waiting for my attention. But I am having fun working through the 6 and a half inch blocks, one by one.....
Hi Jane - lovely day, isn't it? I did indeed manage to visit the Cotton Patch whenever I visited Halifax, while still living in Ottawa. Avonport has become a favourite destination whenever I can't avoid the temptation to get out and look at new fabric. Some very good bargains.
I should be out gardening but am printing off paper foundations for the SBS sampler. I have a friend on the west coast and we have both signed up to try the SBS project as a retirement project - 18 blocks down, 128 to go...
Hi Jane. I tripped across your name on Dianne Decker's page and noticed that you are in Porters Lake. Nice to find someone else in the local area on the CT site. I live in Hubley, about 5 or 6 minutes past Bayers Lake.
Do you belong to any of the local quilt guilds? I have just sent in a membership application for Mayflower. Really disappointed to see so few places to buy quilt fabric here at home - I've lived in Ottawa for some time, before retiring back home, and they have a very large number of shops, lots of places to get new ideas. I am doing more on line shopping here as a result. Not that I really need any more fabric....
Jane, I know it has been miserable in PEI too. It wasn't that nice while I was there either. I think they are having a nice day today but I am not sure as I talked to my sister early and she said it was cloudy and Mom said it was spitting rain and then I talked to my sister-in-law in Charlottetown and she said it was nice. It started off miserable here his a.m. and then it got nice and the sun is out but it is staying so cool. Can't sit out and enjoy the sun. Doesn't make me feel so bad when I know everyone is having the same thing. Out west they are hot and dry and down in the Texas they are hot and dry and that is about the extent of the hot and dry. Oh well soon we will be complaining about the snow again. (ha) Never happy, eh?
Welcome Jane to Quilting Canadians. You will love this group I am sure and we do have fun. Everyone is so helpful and it great just getting to chat back and forth across the country. I see you are from NS. I was in Halifax about a month and half ago. I was home to PEI and took Mom over to the rheumatologist in Halifax. It was the hottest day of summer I think. It was so hot that day, it wasn't even nice to get out of the car. Anyway hope you have a great weekend and enjoy your quilting. Looking forward to seeing some of your photos.
Hi Jane. It has been a few days since I spoke with you. Hope all is well. My friend and I are sitting here looking through the site and all the comments and we are both suffering from 'brain-deadness', what does YBR stand for. Please and thank you.
