-11ºC. Brrr!

It has been a long winter here in Toronto.


Some scenes have been very pretty.


Icy Pine sq


Mostly I have been a bear.




Cocooned inside.


But not sleeping!


A sea of half square triangles getting ready for random matches!

A sea of half square triangles getting ready for random matches! These are only a fraction of the "lights" for this quilt.


More about this project later!


In the meantime ...


If you are going to be in the northwestern Washington state area, I will be teaching  "Pumpkin Peel" and a "Small Quilts" class at Two Thimbles Quilt Shop in Bellingham, WA on April 12 & 13.   I hope you will join us for lots of fun stitching!  For more information you can reach the wonderful folks at Two Thimbles at 360-715-1629.


I will also be speaking at the Moonlight Quilter's Guild, in Bellingham, on Monday April 14th.


And if you want to spend a week, getting absorbed in the glory of medallion quilts, I will be teaching at the Haliburton School of The Arts from June 16th to June 20th.  Come discover the magic and traditions of this wonderful style of quilts while enjoying the peaceful shores of Bark Lake.  You can find more information here.


Happy Stitching!

    Stunning picture. I was so distracted with ice underfoot and no power and branches crashing onto my roof I hadn’t the focus to take pictures, though every now and then I would pause and admire the breathless beauty of the ice on everything.

      Thank you So much Susan. I, like you, would often stop to take in the shimmering sight before me. My thoughts at the time were that it was heartbreakingly beautiful.

    I love your half-square triangles. I am anxious to hear about the upcoming project. Hopefully spring has sprung.
