Getting a Shine on

Cementing went well...
Another check mark of the list!!

I have a new recruit this week.....
This is my sister, Larissa who I managed to drill ONE hole for me.
That was harder than she thought it was going to be!!
Larissa lives in High River, Alberta and was affected by the  recent flood
She and her kids and pets has been displaced since June 20th,2013
But she is resilent and has weathered this storm well!
Her condo should be ready for living this week!!
I treated her to a day with the quilting girls in Midale

to visit the Rolling Ray of Sonshine quilt truck
Larissa does not quilt so you can only imagine how I had to hold down her enthusiasm!!

I managed to finish my Scrap Squad#4 in the nick of time

I mixed a ton of prints in my Christmas rendition of Western Waltz

by Donna Benham of Omaha, Nebraska
which is currently in the Quiltmaker Magazine's Sept/Oct 2013 edition
This stripe called Glow Wavy Stripe by Susan Winget was my starting point....

and from there, it just got crazy!!

Stay tuned for the finished product!!


  1. Sorry I missed the quilt truck ... got so many bargains when it was in Weyburn awhile back. I'll be doing my quilty shopping in the Amish area of Indiana in a few days ... there better be deals just as good there.


Thank you for reading and hope your enjoyed!!
