Don't you just love a challenge?

Choose from four different Kaffe Fassett Cameos

I was at Genesee Valley Quilt Fest recently, and seeing many of my favorite customers who have all my tools.  Everyone enjoys watching the demonstration and a good percentage of customers go home with at least one template, if not all seven.  Yet at the shows I often hear "I have not yet removed the shrink wrap!" That makes me sad!  I invented these tools to help you be more productive and creative.  So how do I get my customers to use the tools they have purchased?

Thimble Pleasures Quilt Guild Modern Challenge

Sue, Donna, and Linda Gosselin, a SPD Certified Instructor, belong to Thimble Pleasures Quilt Guild and we recently revealed our 2016 Challenges. The theme for challenge was "modern".  To participate, we purchased a bag that contained two fat quarters and two crayons.  We had to use both the fabrics in the bag but could add four additional fabrics as long as they matched the colors of the crayons.  The fat quarters were a Kona white and a gray fabric with some circles and helped unify the finished pieces.

Canadian Express!

I hope you enjoyed a relaxing and reflective Memorial Day week! This is a photo of my Father-in-law, Joe Pelland, during World War II. I wish I had him back here today to learn about his experience in Germany, and how he ended up coming back to Montreal, Canada with a young German bride! There are so many questions I would ask my Father-in-law if he were here today. My husband was born and raised in Montreal, Where Joe and his wife Renee settled after the war. When Jeff and I were first married, we spent many weekends driving to Canada to visit relatives in Montreal and Toronto.

3 year Cancer-versary!

Dear friends, I am so pleased to announce that yesterday was my son Timmy's three year Cancer-versary. This is a day to celebrate as Timmy is 3 years past diagnosis with Chronic Mylogenous Leukemia, and he is doing extremely well. I will keep this post short, as I need to get to Timmy's 2nd baseball game of the season. Three years ago, Timmy missed the the entire baseball season. His spleen was so enlarged, it was dangerous for him to do anything. We were afraid to let him go back to school for fear of rupturing his spleen. WOW have we come a long way!!
