Quilts For Lytton Update

Last night while on a Zoom class by Silly Moon Quilting I met a woman who’s got family in Lytton who lost everything in the fires. She told us that they have now collected and distributed over 2000 quilts. Isn’t it incredible how our community steps up to help? Apparently they are now trying toContinue reading “Quilts For Lytton Update”

A Fun Box of Treasures

Today I went to grab the mail because I had been emailed that I had a parcel from Denise B. She knew that I collect quilt tops, fabric and blocks to make charity quilts. This is the photo of the piles of goodies in the box: I had to look at the quilt tops. TheyContinue reading “A Fun Box of Treasures”

All in all August was a good month! Our Evacuation Alert was lifted so I was able to go to my studio for a few days and had sewing time almost every day.

My Trip to the Studio

It was so wonderful to finally be able to take a trip to the studio. My ferry was running and the wait was short. It was so nice to take the ferry instead of having to drive the long way around. It was a good day to travel, not too hot and the smoke wasContinue reading “My Trip to the Studio”

Friday Fun

Had more fun today playing with scraps.

Another Day and A Finish

We are still on evacuation alert, but I don’t have any updated maps. The smoke is still too thick for them to get good photos to map it out. It was another day of watching helicopters and timing their runs, taking photos of these amazing pilots. Their job is hindered by the people rafting andContinue reading “Another Day and A Finish”
