This weekend, beginning May 21st is
held in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
How I wish I could be there in the midst of all the latest Fabrics and technology in the fast growing world of Quilting. Instead, as I drive along the coast of our island I enjoy the simplicity of life.......

A Little Shop on the's Sunday...they are closed.

I find inspiration from the colours of nature and reflect on the times when I am in search for that one piece of fabric that going to make my Quilt 'pop' -better known as the 'wow' fabric.
I look yonder...


                                                                                Follow your dreams!

I will be in my studio attempting a new technique of trapunto. It looks exciting and rather simple. I shall keep you posted, although I tend to go for the challenging elaborate task to begin my journey, I have decided to be somewhat timid and go simple.......and enjoy the simplicity of life.

Happy Quilting

There is something soothing about quilting by the seaside, the waves lapping on the sand bringing its own form, only for a moment, returning back to sea to revolve again. We are always revolving.

I am quilting away making lap size quilts to throw on chairs in my Beach House. Yes, I know Quilts in a Beach House! Quilts adds such warmth to a home and today, the quilting fabrics are so amazing!

I finally completed my Blue and White Quilt, which I made for someone
who is very dear to my heart. She loves Blue and White!
Christmas came and went and I had not finished her's never too late..
a gift from the heart that touches the soul  of someone dear to
you is whats important. The month of April is fine! and so it was.........

Life is so precious, each day is a gift to be treasured,
each moment to be enjoyed.
Yesterday is the past - its gone,
today is the presence - its here - tomorrow is the future
it's not here - and may not be.

As a quilter, there are so many quilts you wish to make, the span of life is too short!

Happy Quilting.
