I have been working on my crazy quilt block for the class that I am taking. It is fun but must admit I don't think I have the talent of some of the other in my class.
Since I showed you my first block, I redid the whole block with different colours. The first one was shades of beige and I decided to do white and shades of grey. We ave now moving on to the silk ribbon portion and then later, beads and bits and bobs.
As for the volunteering. I am still waiting to complete all of the vaccinations that are required. I need to be vaccinated for chicken pox and Rubella before I can commence working at the hospital.

I don't have much of my own work to share today so I thought I might show you a few of the quilts that I thought were really beautiful at Quilt Canada this year. Two of my friends and I went to St. Catharines this year for the week. It was fabulous. I was not able to take any pictures of the National Juried Show as no cameras were allowed. However I was able to take photos of Invitational Show which I believe are Quilts made by most of the teachers.
