This and that

Good morning!
here is a picture of a wall hanging I made last year for Verona - a friend from Revelstoke. It is called 'The travelers'
I just finished putting together a class for the learningfa group on
" Quilt as you go quilts - my way" It explains my way of doing the manual machine quilting as simply as I can manage. We will be sending out the emails over the weekend.

click on 'learningfa' in the side bar if you are interested in joining.
We still have some snow on the ground but it is melting- I am looking forward to tonight
as I will be attending 'The Quilt" auction for Wellspring for cancer support. We hope to auction over 90 quilts for this wonderful cause. I wish you could all be there with me.

I finished my "Winter fun" wall hanging and will give it to Wellspring tonight. I now hope to finish the wall hanging I started for my friend , and make sure I have a quilt ready for
a prize on my group. I have one picked out but might, if time permits do another one.
Life is good! Isn't retirement great? I can do what I want, when I want to. grin. I find I am always busy but it is self inflicted. It is too bad you have to grow old to get there.

I am also reading as many Colleen McCullough books as I can find at the library. Just finished the 'Thorn Birds' and am now reading
'The Touch'. She has written a few others and I hope to slowly get through them all.

Well, off to make lunch for hubby. Take care everyone! I hope to take some pictures of the auction tonight and will post them tomorrow. Shirley
