Something very exciting to share!

 Yes, Something very exciting!  I have been invited to present a trunk show of my quilts to the Lawrencetown Sew-Ciety Guild on Thursday, June 19 .  How freakin' awesome is that!  I can hardly wait.  I spent this morning sorting through my finished quilts and some quilt tops to show.  I will also be taking along some of my scrappy cushions and a few smaller scrappy projects.     KnittySister is going to tag along as my chauffeur/assistant. I hear that there are several knitters in the Sew-Ciety too.  Here is a new cushion I made this morning to take along to show how I use up my hoarde of selvedges.   
 I am super excited to talk about my quilting journey with the Sew-ciety  and share my passion for making quilts for my family and friends.  Just hope I don't get tongue-tied in my excitement but I am pretty sure that once I start it might be difficult to get me to stop!  Wish me luck and I will have lots to tell afterwards. 







 
In my last post, I neglected to show you the pincushion I made and the one I received in the exchange at the meeting of my guild, The Maritime Modern Quilt Guild

Jeanette picked the one I made, this cute little owl.  I made one for myself too! The two pins you see at the top were handmade for me by my BQFF, KathyB, from Saint John, NB

And I picked the one that Anja made.  I love a skinny pincushion!  And she used a gorgeous orange fabric on the back, her signature colour! Great FMQ stitching, Anja!

I'm so excited for you. The guild made the right choice, picking you for a trunk show. You'll be amazing. Your owl pincushion is adorable. You received a gorgeous one, in return. You have to love orange. Good luck, and more importantly....have fun doing your trunk show.
