What a great long weekend I've had. My quilting daughter(Kirstin) from Ottawa has been here and she and I have had a great time sewing and shopping and doing things that mothers and daughters love to do.
We took a drive to the Fundy National Park...it is an incredible drive with tremendous views of the Bay of Fundy. This is only a small representation of the panoramas you can enjoy. That was a great day.
This is the bag that Kirstin made ...all in one day. The fabrics came from Africa and they are funky, young and fun. She added a two tone lining with lots of pockets. All she needs to do now is decide if she wants to embellish the outside and maybe add some kind of closure at the top. She does really good work...my number one daughter.
While Kirstin was sewing, I drafted more squares for my Dear Jane...up to 86 now and still eager to do more. I have some I downloaded from the internet, some I drafted on EQ6 and then a light bulb went off over the head....doh!!!...
I have a book "501 Quilt Blocks"...they are all 4 inches but I can redraft easily enough. So I sit down each day and draw up 3 or 4 squares...I try to do a couple of applique, a pieced one and maybe a paper pieced one ...just to round it out. Only 110 left to do. Think I'll get it done this summer??????
