Many months have passed since my last blog ... my letters to friends used to begin the same way!!! I have had many interesting things happening in my life and have done a fair amount of creating. I'll start with what I was working on today and over the next few weeks report on the missing months.
These little scrappy blocks will work their way into a child`s quilt for the IWK (children`s hospital in Halifax, NS.) I have not decided yet just how I will put them together.
And also this:
I have found a quilting group (Warm Wishes) in my new neighbourhood. I`ll tell you more about them later. Anyway, they do all charity quilting which is right up my alley. At our meeting on Wednesday I snafu`d the African print from a bag of donated scraps and decided to cut it up to make a couple of kid`s quilts. More in the coming weeks.
And last but not least, here is a project I am hoping to complete this summer. This Grandmother`s Flower Garden was started by my mom, pre-1950. She set it aside when she had my brother and just never got back to it. So I am hoping to finish it as a surprise for her. It is all sewn by hand (not my forte) and, unfortunately, not with 1/4 inch seams. So, it may be a bit tricky matching her sewing, but I am goiing to try. This will probably result in a first - hand pieced but machine quilted!!
Don`t you love the hugging bears?
They belong to my mom, too but there is no room for them in her room at the Guest House.
More soon and I hope you are all enjoying this lovely spring into summer weather!!
