About Peg

I’m Peggy and I am passionate about so many things: quilting, embroidery, reading, writing, running, swimming. Creativity is what I strive for in life.

  1. Hi Peg,
    I need you to email your address to me please – Liam wants to send you some origami. See my blog for more information!

  2. Thanks for your concern! I have been meaning to blog but have not got my act together. In the meantime, I have been blogging over at http://california-sweet.blogspot.com/ I hope you enjoy that! Don’t forget, you have to start at the beginning, which is at the bottom and “older posts” and then read forward. It was my “reward holiday” for enduring chemo all last winter. I’m going to post this on my sewing blog but have not done it yet. Soon!

  3. Hi Peggy, can you please email me your address so that i can post your PIF pressie to you..as promised in OCT 08..can you believe it’s almost a year ago??..cheers, Marian

    Catch you later Peggy

  5. Hi Peggy
    Thanks for dropping by my blog. The food was indeed yummy especially Mel’s chocolate strawberry cheesecake! 😀 Hope someday you can come over to visit us and join in the party! Am not very good at applique, just sharing with the others what I know. In fact, I learnt mostly from magazines and books back then, now we have You Tube and online tutorials!

  6. Hi Peggy..thank you for dropping by my blog and commenting on my quilt wall hanging. I bought this at a local craft store. It is a MH Designs MH 605 titled: Quilters’ Wash Day. The address is:
    Mary Herschleb Designs
    288 Appaloosa Ct
    Hudson WI 54016

    I hope that helps 🙂

  7. I just wanted to say your quilt pieces are just great. I do love the colour of your Celtic piece, makes me regret using such bland colours. I removed all my stitching from the outside snake to start over the right way, did that last night and at lunch today. I will stich tomorrow I hope. If you find a “time” tree you will share right?!!! I need a clone just to do half of what I want to do…help!!!!!!! I’m even cleaning wool tonight so I can spin. I’m going to QC to go apple picking on the Island so will lose quilting time but once a year we need to have a little fun;)Have a great week. Jen

  8. Loved my day, just sent you the pics we took & Dany’s Hand-Irons via email, post them and tell me which one you want.

    Have a great day tomorrow, also anytime in Dec except the 10th-11 and 19th. I love our sew-in’s!!

  9. Help! I want to learn to quilt-live on the Gaspe coast-need to find a group/ instructor. Do you know of anybody?

  10. Hi Peg, I wanted to reply to your comment on my blog but you show up as a no reply blogger! Darn! Anyway! Thank you so much for your kind comments! I like my shelves too! cathy@blueberrypatch

  11. No problem Cathy. I noticed that it said anonymous :(…and I did use my wordpress acoount. Nice meeting you, and I will be back to visit you, to see the outcome!

  12. Hi Peg, thanks for your comments on my works in progress. I am not sure yet how I am going to quilt Proverbial sunshine. I am pondering that. I think I will just dive in when I have the quilt sandwiched. : )

  13. Hi Peg! Thanks for your comment on my blog. You asked how long I’ve been machine quilting and the answer is just about 2 years. Every quilt I do I get better – the saying practice makes perfect is so correct! I dislike making “practice” pieces, so I’ve been practicing on table runners, mug rugs and baby quilts. I would still like to expand my selection of designs, but I’ve found a few that I’m comfortable with and that’s ok too!

  14. Hello Peg, I found you via a listing for Quebec quilting bloggers. My sisters-in-law are travelling across Canada from BC and are currently in Quebec. They would like to do some quilt fabric shopping but are having trouble finding shops. Can you recommend any in Quebec City, Montreal, Hull or surrounding area? By coincidence, they are also runners!

  15. Hello Jean, I’m assuming that your sisters-in-law have left? I’m sorry that I missed you and them. Were they in Quebec for the marathons? As for fabric shopping, there is not a lot. In fact there are no quilt stores per se. We buy our fabric at the fabric stores which sell many types of material. Fabricville and Maison de tissu are the main ones in the big centres. Do you have a blog?
