On the late train but Westerners might not know it ;)

I wanted to have a post ready to start the day but.  Welcome you all to my blog as your are wandering Canada for the Sew Sisters blogothon!

Sew Sisters Blog

I am in Quebec, north of Quebec city.  I belong to a thriving quilt guild and members win national and international competitions so it is motivating to know that someday this little quilter could enter a show.

It is also motivating to meet other Quebec Quilt bloggers: Josée at the Charming Needle and Janet from  Caribou Crossing Chronicles. 

Here are some of my projects that I am working on.  I have too many UFOs and since I am in education, PHDs!

I have gotten into the postcard craze and hope to be making some for 2015!

I love the little sewing projects and here is one that I have made at least 5 times; they make great gifts!

Fabric stashing is one of my favourite hobbies! Those top shelves have since been organized!

Embroidery and quilting go together like tea and cookies! I love Australian Stitcheries and all their magazines.  Totally addicted!

I also dabble in cross stitch and this gem will be hung up soon.

In order to quilt and craft and work and LIVE I am a runner!

Being active makes let me do everything else!

What is better than relaxing and stitching!

Thank you for visiting! I love bloghopping so if you leave a comment I will jog on over to visit you too!

  1. Nice work. You’re correct, I do not notice the post as being late, just reading your blog while I wait for dinner to cook here in Alberta ☺

  2. First time blog hopper going thru Canada seeing and reading lots from talented quilters. I like your stash organization. Someday mine will be organized maybe. I too have a lot of UFOs. Greetings from Bismarck ND, USA. I don’t write a blog, not yet anyway.

  3. Hi! I am visiting on Blogathon Canada. It’s so nice to read about you and see all your projects. Your fabric is very nicely organized! 🙂
