Out and About This Summer

Two more sailboats, a Mariner's Compass and only a couple thousand more pinwheel blocks to go (well, it seems like it!) on this Tall Ships quilt. The border fabric is in the wash and it is very optimistic it will be included in this top before the weekend is over. There is never enough sewing time, which is my absolute favourite thing in the world to be doing. This week, time will be spent getting some pieces ready for an exhibit at the Cumberland County Museum and Archives, which runs from June 23rd into August. I had hoped to have this silk log cabin ready in time for this exhibit (remember this one from a few months back?) but as you can see, it hasn't progressed past the basting stage. How wonderful it would be to have opportunity to hand quilt this over the summer months. It is silk both front and back and will be haptic bliss to stitch. Since it isn't ready, I will choose another quilt from the stack to exhibit in its place, along with the Anne quilt which toured Japan.
In addition to this exhibit, I also have the following appearances scheduled:
  • July 1 - Canada Day - A display of patterns, book and quilts at the Visitor Information Centre at the Nova Scotia/New Brunswick border. 9 am - 8 pm

  • July 11 - Atlantic Canada Author's Day - Display and book signing at Coles, Amherst Centre Mall 10-11 am

  • July 20th - Timeless Stitches, River John (tentative)

  • July - Five Islands Bazaar (tentative)

  • August 18th - A display of patterns, book and quilts at Fabricville to greet a quilt cruise ship visiting Halifax that day (time to be confirmed)

If you happen to be in any of these areas this summer, it would be great to have you stop by and say hello.

The brochure for Nova Scotia Fibre Festival is now available, and the organizers have put together a fabulous lineup of activities. I understand the workshops are filling up already so if you are considering attending, don't wait to get your place reserved.

  1. I agree that quilting is absolutely the most favorite pastime in the universe. When I'm stitching, the rest of the world completely disappears.

    And I see you are at Fabricville in August. Me too! Computer Quilt design programs in one session and Mosaic Applique for the other.

    See you there.
