Moose Quilt

A very wonderful, caring lady sent us a Moose quilt. It is so beautiful, and the backing fabric is gorgeous.

Thank you so much.


Clay Ornaments from Laurie in New Brunswick

Along with the wonderful goodies, my sister came with, her daughter Laurie sent up some clay ornaments. They are just so cute, I love the faces. I love the "Marshmallow Family" and the "No Fly Zone" frog. Thanks a bunch Laurie.

Some wonderful goodies from NB

Hi everyone, my sister arrived yesterday from New Brunswick with some wonderful goodies for us. I shrunk the pictures down a lot so please click on them to see more details. Alice loves to quilt, so she made the Teddy Bear Quilt with a pink backing. She also hand quilted the book, it is soft-sided and it is about Helping Heroes! Then she made us some lovely little bags in a variety of colours. The placemats are beautiful, the seashells on one side with a turquoise water on the back, the black and white musical instruments with striped backing and the autumn leaves with a homespun backing. And she also knitted up some dishcloths (I can never have enough of those). Oh yes, she is knitting up a scarf while she is here, will post a pic when it is done.



Just a quick update, these placemats are already sold, as is one of the snap bags.

Hi everyone, it seems like forever since I posted anything here. I have been down in Ohio visiting some fellow stitchers and having a ball. We were right in the middle of Amish country, it is so beautiful there. Even the Wal-Mart had a hitching post for the horse and buggies driven by the Amish. Did not do a lot of shopping except for the stitching goodies. I found a booklet that has 3 patterns for Christmas humbugs, will stitch them up next. They look so pretty. I will download some pictures for you soon. Until then, take care.

Other goodies coming soon

I forgot to mention that my friend Carole is working on some goodies for us as well. She has the Christmas Pirate almost done. It is by Sue Hillis and Santa Claus has a patch over one eye - it is so sweet.

As well, my friend's daughter Carole will be knitting up some afghans for us. My great niece wants to make us some quilted Christmas balls. My sister says she has some goodies as well but I won't see them until her visit (at the end of October).

Can't wait to see everything, will take lots of pictures for you to see.


Janice's Celtic Knots

Hi everyone, I have been busy stitching but nothing is finished so I have nothing to show you right now. However, my friend Janice was busy taking care of her Mom and still managed to stitch up a bunch of Celtic Knots for the cause. Unfortunately you know who (me) forgot to bring her camera to take pictures of them. So the next time I see her, I will take lots of pictures so you can see her beautiful work.

Until the next time, hugs to all
