What's Going On

I have been busy since my last blog. I have finished the quilt top for my next design which I am going to keep to myself for a little while longer. It is going to be published using Kathy Schmitz's next line, "Bird Song", due out this fall and in some other beautiful fabrics by Sandi Henderson. I am almost finished another top which features Moda Layer Cakes which I hope to be able to show you soon and a little wallhanging using wool and wool roving.

During this fun time, I am cleaning up my studio so I can get pictures of it online. That actually might take a few months in between design time and family time. We are also building a new cabin at Loon Lake BC. The property has been in my family since the 1940's. The original cabin built by my grandfather, my dad and his brothers was demolished last week and the construction of the new cabin started this week. It's very exciting and we will be travelling back and forth this summer to watch the progress.

I finished "Cutting for Stone". Although I really enjoyed the history and culture of Ethiopia, the book was not one of my favourites. I am now reading "Cathedral of the Sea" which is set in 14th Century Spain. I am really enjoying it.
