I started Bonnie Hunters Holiday mystery, Carolina Christmas. Been plugging along with it when I need a break. Not sure how I am going to put it together.
Wayne got me a wonderful Christmas present. An Accuquilt Studio cutter. Like the Go, but bigger. Cuts 10 layers. We played with it with some scraps. Fun, Fun. made some flying geese and hour glass blocks and they went together perfect. I am going to really like this tool. I think Wayne will, too. After Christmas I am going make up some kits for myself. Use up that fabric. LOL.
Going to get my new glasses tomorrow. I really need them. It has been 3 years sence the last eye exam. They couldnt do the hour thing because the machine was broked, so I have to make another trip to Columbia, but I can add some shopping time to that. LOL
Let me tell you what happened last Sat. I went to People, Placed and Quilts, in Summerville, SC, with friends. It was their Christmas sale. Got some good deals. Anyway, this voice said, " I know that voice'" I turned around and there was my college roommate. She lives in Colorado now. The last time I saw her had to be 6 or 7 years ago at the same shop. She and her family were home visiting for a week. It was great to see Pam and catch up a little. I was riding with others or it would have been a longer catchup time.
I am tired tonite so will say goodnite, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all.

At our QSC spring meeting, Sandra, issued a new challenge. make a Heart Quilt. The idea is women's heart health. A charity is being considered to benefit this challenge. Several booking for displaying the quilts have already been made. 63 quilts were turned in at retreat last Friday. And more are coming in. Here is a picture of mine. I it is titled "fractured heart" . One is a little fuzzy. For some reason I got 2 pictures on here and cant get one off, so you get a double delight. LOL When our web diva gets caught up she will post pictures on the QSC website.
I got the idea from some of the Loopy Ladies quilt bee in Brampton, Ont, Canada. I met these ladies in July on our trip to Canada. They were wonderful and welcoming to this southern gal.
Happy Quilting, Vicki

Monday nite Camilla's small group met at her house. They are called the Loopy Ladies. They were wonderful women and made me feel very welcome. Two of the ladies had just gotten back from quilt camp. Their teacher was John Willard. He teaches Spontaneous Geometrics. A kind of fractured quilt. You start with a square and slash it into 2 uneven pieces, sew a strip in, not evening up anything. then square it up, add a boarder and do it again. And keep going. You can read about him here.
After that we went to Heather and Bill's cottage on the lake at Havelock, On.
Niagara was great. We did the Maid of the Mist, Behind the Falls, and the walk down by the rapids. We walked through the botanical gardens. The weather was wonderful. Cool.
There were all kinds of people there. A very international look.

Monday,We went to Johnsonville Tn shopping to Somewhere Sewing. They have about 8000 bolts, I think. A great shop. Then to Jonesboro to shop at Tennesee Quilts. also a great shop. And we found a Wal-Mart with fabric in Elizabethton. Found lots for $2/yard. If you live there check it out.
Tuesday we visited my friends mountain quilt group it Erwin Tn. Had a wonderful time with show and tell and visiting with everyone. They always refresh me and I want to start new projects. LOL
Wed. We met another friend in Burnsville NC and shopped at Needle me This. It was Just in the McCalls 10 favorite quilt shops. A nice shop. FUN day. We had to detour around work on the train tracks several times, so was quite an adventure.
Back home to clean up my sewing room so I can get back to work quilting.
Have a happy 4th of July
