We finally had some sunshine in Northern Alberta!!!! I got the last of my flowers planted. Hopefully we will have some more sunny days soon; although, we had a fantastic thunderstorm last night with load of rain, and it is on the cooler side today.

I have some very exciting news. I have been published!!! A quilt that I quilted for my friend, Laurel Francis, has been published in the Canadian Magazine, A Needle Pulling Thread.
I quilted 3 of these last Spring for Laurel, in anticipation of her article in A Needle Pulling Thread. The article also includes the pattern for this quilt, a queen size quilt and a hooked rug by Laurel's sister in law and business partner, Cindy Everett. I have many pictures of these quilts being quilted and will have them on my website soon. I wasn't allowed to post pictures until the article and pattern was published.... it was very hard to keep it all under wraps - only a couple of very close friends knew of the spread. I have been quilting for Laurel for about 10 years - I started quilting for her on my domestic machine.... she is a great friend and designer. She does not have a website at the moment, but if you are interested in her designs she can be contacted here.
and May is gone.... LOL... not that I wasn't busy creating in May - I just haven't blogged for awhile..... I made this jacket for Boston Terrier Rescue..... they will use it as a fundraiser. I finished quilting my two 4 Patch Stack quilts and now I am packing for two quilt retreats in June - they run back to back this year - so I have a whole week of quilting!
