I know it has been awhile, but I have been terribly busy. I am working on a Silent Auction & Dinner fundraiser for my girl''s dance studio. It has taken most of my spare time up getting the bid sheets and listings compiled and in the computer, not to mention getting donations. I wanted to get this all done before my sister arrives, TODAY!! yippee!
the quilt pictured here will go in the Silent Auction. This is probably the most modern quilt i have ever done, really outside my comfort zone. I enjoyed making it though. I free motioned it with loopy flowers in turquoise thread. It is not very big, 39x56". Good for a young girl. It will be interesting to see just how much it goes for. I have a few more things to post, but first I need to vaccum and get to the airport! Can't wait for her visit as I know we will have fun and many laughs together and spend way too much too!!

I know where have I been? What can I say life has been getting in the way of my quilting. I only get a few minutes here and there to do any. I have a few deadlines to meet and I am not sure I will get there. the evenings are spent shuttling the kids to and from activities, days are filled either working, cleaning, shopping, volunteer work or appointments. the calendar above shows most, not all of the activities of the kids. Each kid a different colour. November's calendar is just as colourful, if not more now that indoor soccer has started for two of them.
D#2's Grade 5 class is crocheting scarves for the homeless. I went in to help teach the class a couple of weeks ago. Now they are on a roll. I have been helping them out too and have made 2 scarves so far during the few minutes i get to watch TV. My hands are never idle.
I have been putting in many hours for my daughters dance studio's parent association''s silent Auction that is coming up on the 2st.
My sister is coming for a visit that I a thrilled about. She hasn't been here in a couple of years, yes this is the sister that I made the Happy quilt for. (only have one sister). We will be celebrating her 50th that week, going to a Calgary Flames game, night in Banff, and some major shopping I bet.
