During the meantime I am also planning our wonderful upcoming trip. Karen does not have a blog. My new friend Gail from NB Canada has been very helpful in many ways and we now have our confirmed reservation at "Green Gable Cottage. Gail has a lovely blog called "Quilt,Knit,Run, Sew" please have a look. From my last posting about PEI
"Linda from Stitching Lines" and Karen, "Sew Kaaren-ly Create" have also been helpful. You can see Karen's very lovely prize winning "Anne Of Green Gable Quilt" created a couple of years ago on her blog. On Karen's blog you will also find a photo of the "Patchwork Quilt Tsushin" Japanese Magazine with the wonderful PEI Lighthouse on the front cover along with the most gorgeous "Anne Quilt" This issue is filled with everything PEI and their quilts. The next 6 photos below are some of the Anne's Quilts. I think they are all truly beautiful. I ordered the Japanese Magazine from
"Center Diamond Quilt Shop" in Cannon Beach Oregon see it below. I also purchased this PEI DVD from Amazon and it was so lovely to watch.
Below is a photo of another Flower Dorset Button I created recently. I think I will use it as an embellishment to the in progress "Crazy Quilt Of My Dreams".
The photo below is of my first needle weaving attempt. It will be included in the project I am working on for the February 1st Exhibition.
For the last couple of years I have been mainly creating crazy quilt projects. Judith Baker Montano new book called "Fibreart Montage" is truly lovely. Last year I was introduced to Tilda's Books. "Sew Sunny Homestyle" came out last August and it also has some very lovely patterns in it to create.
Below is a couple of very lovely "Rose" buttons I received from a Dear Friend in Australia. They will also go on my Hearts and Roses Crazy Quilt I am working on.
My Husband created the two bird feeders below. Our winter birds are enjoying the protection and the food after our blustery very cold and abundant snow fall last week.
The stitching project I have been working on has the theme of "Winter Wonderland" and you can see all I need to do is look outside and I have all kinds of inspiration.
Last evening I could not put down the Patchwork Quilt Tsushin Magazine. Oh, how I wish I could read Japanese. It has so many "Beautiful Anne Quilts" that were so awesome to look at.. The Japanese Magazine also took many photos of Lovely Businesses on PEI whose owners had made all kinds of truly beautiful quilts. They were a delight to look at. I will have to make it a point of discovering and exploring all the "Quilt Shops on PEI".
