Here is my latest project .........

I just finished making a 'quilt carrier' as a prize for
an upcoming retreat - It is a
pillow case that I hand dyed and then I added a
wall hanging that I made to the outside. I find these
are great quilt holders or carriers. I buy inexpensive
pillow cases, dye the background and then add a
quilted scene.

I used to paint something on the
actual pillow case but as I like doing the wall hangings,
I decided to do this one with a quilted rough edge landscape on it.

I plan on doing a couple more for prizes for different
things. I hope you like it.

We are sad up here in Canada that our Olympics are over tonight. I have
enjoyed them so much and our Canadian team did very well indeed. I believe we topped the number of Gold medals did very well in the overall medal count - We
are watching the Hockey game and as the whole country has awaited meeting the Americanswe are hoping that we can win a gold.

We are looking forward to the closing ceremonies tonight - Vancouver
has put their heart and sole into the games and all of Canada has been
l00% behind our olympians. I am very proud (as usual) to be a Canadian.I hope those who were able to visit during the Olympics will come back
as there is lots to see and do in this beautiful country.

I hope you all enjoyed the games as much as I did.
