Welcome to my world where I try to figure out what I'm going to do next! These days, it is mostly quilting, but you never know what it might be... come find out with me!

Just what have I been doing?

Lots and lots of things as a matter of fact, but very few of them have involved a lot of sewing or quilting.  Work-work is super busy these days and I come home exhausted and not able to even think about doing any fun stuff, but that will be changing soon - yay!

Last weekend was the Blue Mountain Quilters' Guild quilt show - that kept me busy - I was responsible for the hanging of the quilts.  I had a great crew, and the job went nice and smooth.  The show itself was a wonderful success this year - beautiful quilts on display and loads of people came through to see them.  My MacDonald Building mini quilt took an honourable mention in the small applique division.

The MacDonald Building

This past week was the latest Tangled Textiles challenge reveal.  The theme was beginnings - unfortunately, my original reveal was itself just a beginning - I didn't get it finished on time.  But that has been rectified now and I've just posted about my finish.

Are you dizzy yet???

You should pop over to the blog and check out the fabulous work my fellow tanglers have come up with yet again, and to read a bit more about my process with this one!

Happy quilting!
