Its really impressive to see the quality of work in organizing and quilt layout as well as the beauty of the quilting in Fort Fraser and just above everyone has grey hair.
Sybille Broten made and hand quilted this lovely old timer Clam Shell. Such careful and tight stitching of hand quilting.
This guild makes and donated hundreds of hand made quilts to the Prince George Regional Hospital I was told and this is a mere sample of that in the photo below.

We were out on walk and saw this spectacle on a recently fallen birch. I think they were drinking a liquid that was flowing very slowly. I think it must be butterfly wine.
Happy quilting everyone.

A new commission is on my table. I truly love making t-shirt quilts. And this one a gecko in it. I intend to machine quilt this piece.
Happy Quilting to all my combined followers of over 400. Wow, thank you for seeing and reading valuable techniques. I follow several of you as well.
My UFO's are on the table for summer projects. Thank you for all the comments on what to do with my UFO pile. Some of you even emailed me personally. I'm taking all you advice.

Hand applique stitching with the time honored blind stitch. Its a stitch that my Gr. Eight Home Economics teacher, Miss Hepburn taught me along with many other girls.
The stitch is simple and clean. Once you learn to do the correct stitch length, you are off to the races. I take roughly a 1/8 in. Stitch each new stitch. From then on its just repeat. I use this stitch a lot and enjoy the memory too.
I find comfort in this little book of encouragement. I was given it last year and have been picking it up when I'm challenged to keep smiling while in pain. My friends Dad has chronic pain and he found comfort in this book too.
Do you have memory of a great Home Ec. teacher?
