My Summer


This summer my husband and I decided our kitchen needed a major overhaul.  The top picture is the "before" and the bottom two pictures are the "after".  Needless to say, I was in a mess for most of the summer but even worse - my studio was full of boxes and kitchen stuff!!  Happy to say that I'm finally back in the studio with lots of projects to finish.  Oh, and yes, I LOVE my new kitchen!!!

Have I really not posted since November???  I have had a busy winter in the studio and actually got a lot accomplished.  The warm weather has returned which has got me out in the garden.  I am working a few very special quilts and will post pictures when they are completed.  Meanwhile, here are some pictures of the projects I finished over the winter months.  Happy spring!!

You know the old saying "best laid plans...", well that's what has happened to me the past two weeks!  There is a nasty flu bug circulating in our area that snuck in before the vaccines were being offered, and I happened to get it.  Starting to feel a little better now but I miss being in the studio!!  I had hoped to have my niece's quilt finished by now and pictures posted but alas, I haven't even started to quilt it yet!!  I can only hope that next week will be better!!  My advice - GET YOUR FLU SHOT!!!! (I will be getting mine tomorrow!)

It's been a while since I last posted.  October was a busy month, getting things done before I went on vacation.  I returned on Saturday and what an amazing vacation it was!!  This was our third visit back to the beautiful Dominican Republic and it is certainly not our last!  The people are so warm and friendly.  Now, I am relaxed and recharged and ready to get back to work!

Well, it's October 1st already!  I made this little wall hanging last year and it sold right away!  People just love the Halloween themes!!  I spent a great day yesterday with my granddaughter Tarra at the Waterloo County Quilt Guild quilt show!  Such talented ladies.  The quilts were amazing and Tarra and I had a hard time picking our three favourites.  I'm happy to announce that you can now access the 2 Crazy Quilters, my quilt business site with Renee,  through Google.  Check it out when you have time.  I'm also excited about my upcoming vacation.  It's been quite awhile since my husband and I have had a chance to get away and we will be leaving October 15 for a week of sun and relaxation in the Dominican Republic.  It's a cool, rainy day here in Southern Ontario and I think I will start a new project today.  Have a great weekend, everyone!  Till next time......

I love Japanese prints.  I had some in my stash and found a package of pre-cut Japanese prints at the local quilt shop.  I couldn't resist.  Maybe one day, I'll actually get to visit that beautiful country.

"Gobble till you Wobble"

I couldn't resist making this little gem from Briarwood Cottage designs.  It will hang outside my house for Thanksgiving.  I used the freezer paper method using glue sticks and toothpicks for the applique.  I will be teaching a class using this method in the months to come.
