I LOVE UFO Sundays

I love UFO Sundays with Leah Day - here is a link to her site.  Unfortunately - having just had surgery - today won't be a quilting day but a day to catch up on some craftsy quilt courses while I relax for the next few days.  In the meantime - enjoy the link to Leah's site."

Past Projects

Well I guess it's time to upload some of my previous projects - This one is titled Three Sisters - the three mountains in Canmore, Alberta - I quilted it as a wedding gift for my Brother and Sister-in-law. Using Leah Day's expertise - I purchased the Supreme Glider and practiced one of her free motion styles and it turned out great.   I have also embellished it with tyvek, paint and a few fabric embellishments.

Hooray - they're finally done!

Two good things happened today - The final UFE Exam (Chartered Accountant) was written by Kristy - our daughter - AND - I managed to get all the bookmarks completed.  Stay tuned for the photos! And here they are....Each one was quilted and embellished in the color of the sign and measure approx 3.5 wide by 8 inches long depending on the sign.

Astrological Quilted Bookmarks

The first 3 in a series of embroidered bookmarks I have created using a variety of quilting, painting  and embellishments. Each one is embellished and quilted in the colours of the sign.  The binding is a rattail binding taught on - by Carol Ann Waugh.

Fairy In the Garden - She's Finally Complete

I have been working on this wallhanging for well over a year now - finally got her done. She will be a welcomed addition to hang over our piano.
