Introducing Nova-Lee

This sweet angel is Nova-Lee, born December 27, 2017.  I finally had the chance to meet her (they live in Red Deer, Alberta.

I did have a nice visn’t with Miss Nova-Lee, her brother, Mason, her Mom, Nicole and her Nanny, Stacy.  It was too short as there is never enough time to visit when you are snuggling with a wee one.  My granddaughter, Nicole sent a photo when Nova-Lee was playing on her quilt.

I peiced the Road to Oklahoma Quilt with fabrics from my stash and my scrap bin so it’s a mix from all of my favorite fabric suppliers.  Once I had it sandwiched I quilted with some stitch in the ditch and cross hatching, made a label and did my binding.  All in all, I had a great time with this one and Nicole and Stacy were happy to get it, especially when I told them it’s machine washable!  I used Warm and Bright batting; love it for baby quilts.


I love it when we get to FaceTime.  Nova-Lee laughs, smiles and “talks” now.


.I think I have found another pattern to add to my favourites list.  I have another Road to Oklahoma Quilt on the cutting table.  I had some beautiful fabric in my stash which just was crying for a traditional pattern so off we go!

In the meantime my Lonestar Quilt is coming along.  It near broke my heart when I came home from a Guild Meeting and discovered DH’s grandson had visited my studio and spilled his grape juice on it.  After doing a complete Stitch picking job on it, I did salvage what I could, but was short of the original fabric so I’ve had to rework the design and it’s got a modern twist to it now.  I’m using wool roving from Carstairs Woolen Mill for the batting.  The couple it’s for live off grid here in the Kootenays so a warm quilt is a necessity.  I will be sad to see this one go, but it is past time it was in its new home.  More on this when I finish the last border!

I have been fondling fabric and creating things with fabric and fiber for as long as I can remember. My children had homemade clothes, blankets, canning and quilts most of their lives. Now I create goodies to share! Hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoy making them! When I am not creating with fiber or fabric I keep busy with Dear Heart, kids, grandkids, great grandkids.

  1. Oh my, look at that little sweetie! She is just about five months old now – they change so much each day. I get a daily picture of my great-nephew, and I share it with anyone who will look at it. Nova-lee, you are truly adorable and a miracle. Many blessing to you sweetheart. ~smile~ Roseanne
