My favourite time of year!

Hello Friends.  I hope everyone is having a wonderful Holiday weekend.  This is my favourite time of year.  The brisk morning air, the geese honking as they congregate at the river and the onset of the leaves turning colour. 

Thank you to my daughter, who is at camp this weekend, and took this picture of a morning visitor.  Who needs TV when you get entertainment out the window!

Nature is getting ready for the arrival of winter and so are we here at the Studio.  I have a new section added to my webpage.  Listed under Upcoming Events you will find, "In Studio Specialty Sessions".  This is where you will find a list of one day workshops I am offering here at my studio.  I will be adding to this section as time goes on so check back regularly.  Workshop #1 is a Tuffet. Click here for more information.

My hubby gets a great kick out of the names of some of these projects, and has now started to call me Miss Muffet.  HaHa!

I was finally able to get my design walls installed this week.  It has been a dream of mine to have many sliding design walls so that I can have more then one quilt on the go at a time.  There is also room for the students to work on their projects while in the studio.  Thanks Alain for the help! 

With the Quiltmaker Magazine hitting the news stands, I was asked to write a guest blog about my quilt that was featured in the magazine.  The blog further details my inspiration and construction techniques I used when making my quilt "Di-Rects-ional".  To read the Quiltmaker Blog called Quilty Pleasures click here. 

The Storm at Sea workshop is filling up nicely so if you are thinking about joining me for the weekend keep in mind time is ticking by!

This weeks Storm at Sea inspirational photo is one I refer to as a double block because it has the Diamond Rects units all around the centre square squared.  This gives the quilt a whole new look. 

Thanks for dropping by.  Until next time, stay safe,  enjoy your weekend and watch out for the bears.
