I've been absent for awhile. I've had no mojo for quilting but it is coming back. I've joined a volunteer group that makes quilts for cancer patients and have one quilt top almost done. The name of the group is Victoria's Quilt's Canada http://www.victoriasquiltscanada.com/ and we have a local group here in Okotoks. The lady who owns the local quilt shop lets us use her class room every second Tuesday for cutting, sewing, talking, laughing and meeting.
We are in need of men's quilts so that is what I have started. The fabric is mostly donated so most quilts are scrap quilts. I think I have enough of the dark brown to do a 2" border. The quilts are made to about 52"X72" - a good size to let patients cuddle and keep warm.
Probably part of the lack of mojo is that I have not started any new projects as I had decided to dedicate 2012 to finishing up UFO's. A good idea in many ways but it severly cramped my creative juices...so last week I allowed myself to start a new project and feel much better. I am making a quilt for one of the walls in Tony's office. More on that another day.
We had new hardwood floors installed on the main floor last month and I just love them. With a Golden Retreiver there will always be hair so we just decided to go for it. I love the gradients of colour and the grain of the wood. Now that we have new floors, everything looks different though, so now the process of painting and re-decorating has started. That will be a gradual process over the winter as I am going to paint a few pieces, and re-cover some stools etc.
Have a wonderful Sunday and a great week!
