Sorry, I've been so long in posting

Sorry that I have been so long in posting but life seems to be getting in the way. I attended a class last week at our local Quilt Shop, Tangled Threads on Charlotte street in Peterborough. It is Tube Quilting and I enjoyed the class and teacher Shirley Challice very much. I have to get all of my blocks put together tonight so that I can put the borders on tomorrow in our last class.

So far here are the blocks I have put together. I am using a Bali Pop (Kiwiberry) It was given to me by my dear friend Kelly and I am so thrilled that I have been able to use it in this project. I will post more then I have them completed.

Then Thursday I am taking another class, Jelly Bargelly.  Yes I am on overload at the moment.

In February, I am going to be taking a 2 day class with Renske Helmuth. She does lovely work. Please visit her site.

This class is mostly hand applique surrounded by some Sashiko. I believe we spend the first day working on the orchid and then part of the next day learning Sashiko. Here is a picture of the sample.

We can do our orchid in any colour we want so I am thinking I would like to do the Orchid the same colour of the one that I have growing in my kitchen window.

Received my Lovely Giveaway

We are home from our weekend getaway. Can you believe it I managed to go away for an entire long weekend, remember to take my camera but forgot to take any pictures. I can tell you we went to two hockey games, visited a museum, took in a Quilt Shop (didn't buy a thing) and went out for dinner several times.

I can highly recommend a fabulous Chinese Restaurant in Ottawa, called The Golden Palace. It doesn't look like much and decor is strictly "old fashioned Chinese restaurant" it is a little pricey but boy is the food terrific.

I have forgotten to blog a thank you to Shay over at Quilting in my Pajamas. I won a giveaway, and it arrived a week of so ago and I have neglected to take a photo until today. It included some lovely fabrics and pretty buttons. Thanks again Shay.

 I sent in my registration to Quilt Ontario 2011, for London next year and I am so looking forward to that event. Hope I will see some of you there.
