Wow, am I going to be busy this fall! I've spent the afternoon creating a calendar of events for me. I needed to see everything in one place and am glad I have as I've found a couple of scheduling conflicts. I'm going to leave them as they are till the conflicts are corrected.
We are at the end of August and I've got 3 travel trips in the next 4 weeks! Whew! I'm tired just thinking about them, but hubby is going to help me out by doing most of the driving. We are up to Edmonton tomorrow morning (very early) for an all day private Handi Quilter lesson. Lucky ladies to have me to themselves for the day!

Valerie was in to quilt this lovely Fancy Forest pattern by Elizabeth Hartman. She used the Ecology Pantograph from Urban Elementz.
Colleen quilted this lovely butterfly quilt using Fanciful Flyers from Urban Elementz.
I was thrilled to be asked to quilt Sharon's Mariner's Compass from Quiltworx. When I was asked to quilt my first Quiltworx quilt, I was very intimidated. Now I love them!!!! and can't wait till I get another one in.
I've taken some time to prep for some classes at Creative Festival in Edmonton and Calgary. We'll be couching and stitching with metallic threads! If you are interested in taking classes at Creative stitches, contact My Sewing Room in Calgary and Central Sewing Machines in Edmonton.
