I am quite new to quilting, but I have been sewing for many years. I also enjoy knitting and cross-stitch. I have several quilt tops done and ready for quilting. I also raise Maltese dogs. I live with my husband and also take care of my 91 yr. old mother-in-law who has dementia.
Hobbies and Interests
quilting, applique, hand quilting, machine quilting, general sewing, knitting, gardening
My pets are awesome!
2 Maltese dogs, Buddy and Lacey, and Abbie, a Himmydoll cat (1/2 Himalayan, 1/2 Ragdoll)
Lori--The leader of this group, Carol, is not on-line until Nov. 2 as she is in the process of moving. I suggest you leave a message on the main comment wall as she says she does not always check the discussions, or leave a message in her inbox so she makes sure to get your message. I don't know where she is at with the number of participants in each swap, so you will have to wait until she is back on-line to find out. Welcome to the group......Glad to have you.

We live approximately one hour, twenty minutes north of Napanee, twenty minutes north of Bon Echo Park on Hwy 41 so anytime I have to shop I try and make sure that I have a very detailed list of what I need. We pretty much live out in the middle of nowhere and we can pick up what we need in a couple of small towns but the prices would just about kill you. I'm not complaining though because we both (my husband & I) love living out here. The air is clean and we're on well water so what could be better than that? Hope you have a fantastic visit with your parents.
I know that PEI is not as small as some people think it is and since the bridge was built, the island seems even larger. What part of the island are you from? My sister and brother-in-law live on the island around Summerside. BTW Your quilts are beautiful. You do amazing work.
Lori - what a small world! My sister-in-law has just moved to Grand River, about 20 minutes from Summerside.
I live in Hubley just outside of Halifax off of Highway 103 to the south shore. We've been here 6 months, but left Ottawa last June to build our home here. We lived with family for 6 months during construction. It is so nice to be back. Maybe we can get together on one of our trips to the Island to visit my mother-in-law. Since my sister-in-law is also quilting, you two might want to connect.
