This is so cool!  I wish I'd have been tuned in to this Board prior to you guys getting your Canadian blocks done.  They look fantastic!

Kim it is not too late.  We decided that it was too small to warrent a trip to Ottawa so we are extending and accepting blocks at least till the end of the summer.  Just remember the finished size is 10 inch so make them 10-1/2 inch to allow for seaming.  Can't wait to see the blocks you guys come up with. 

Louise glad your baby is coming come.  Can't wait to see your block.

Marylin

 

I will be picking up my machine this afternoon. 

Did I mention that we got a new puppy?  His name is Dozer ( as in bulldozer) , he is 10 weeks old this Friday, and is a Brindle Boxer.  So needless to say, I have not had much sleep for the past 2 weeks! lol  Last night, he surprised me big time, I went to bed at 8:00 (I was dog tired) , he went to bed at 10:00 and he did not get up until 5:00!  So he slept 7 whole hours!  Now let's not forget that he sleeps during the day too, like right now!

 

Have a great day ladies, and I will get my block done ASAP!

Louise

Woo hoo!  I'm glad to hear that Marilyn.  Since I live in Alberta, I shall dream up something for my block.  Would it be okay if there was some machine embroidery on the block?  If not, no worries.

 

Thanks!

Kim it is whatever you want it to be, embroidery, pieced, applique, a combo...whatever your little heart desires.

I'm looking forward to seeing your block Kim. I'm still hoping to get inspired and find some time to make a Niagara block.

Congratulations on the new puppy Louise. Puppies are so much fun and they're sooo cute.

Go Effie, Kim and Louise!! You can do it!! Sew, sew Sew!!!!!!!( can you tell I just finished watching the hockey game??)

Asking a quilter to mend something is like asking Picasso to paint your garage.

Hey, Laura - can definitely tell you were watching a hockey game - isn't this what we live for for most of the year? (Besides our quilting, that is)

Now for the big series - Vancouver vs Boston. I think I'm going to need major amounts of nitroglycerin to stave off heart failure if it's anything like the rest of the Vancover games....

Unfortunately, I see the Kootenay Ice lost to Missisauga in the Memorial Cup, and earlier this year, my home town Vernon Vipers didn't win the RBC Cup this year.

Ah well, this keeps life interesting :)

I agree with Laura - keep on sewing!!! but without any stress.

Hope everyone has a great weekend
