Wow!! In a blink of an eye, October is GONE!! At least we got to celebrate the last day of the month with Kim and Don! Kim is a Clubhouse Quilter (from The Sands’ RV Park) and her husband, Don is my hubby’s golf partner when down south. (They live in the Shuswap Lake area in BC.) Kim and Don are on their way down south…with a stop over in Victoria for one last snuggle with their little grand baby before they are off to SUNSHINE and The Sands!
Oh man…did we talk!! Kim and I covered every quilting topic possible…and ended, of course, with our plans for the Road to California, which happens in January! The emails between ‘us Clubhouse girls’ have been flying now as some of the quilters have already started the ‘migration’! Don and Kim leave next week for down south!
Anyway…it was sure nice to break bread with these two and get caught up with their lives! Ohhhh…we are going to have lots of adventures this year, not to mention FUN! Stay tuned…!!
For the past week, I have been moaning and groaning and whining to Karen, Log Cabin Quilter and Lizzie, Quilting in Nothern California! Yes, it hasn’t been pretty!! Here they are busy sewing up wonderful projects from the latest issue of Primitive Quilts and I haven’t even RECEIVED my copy yet! [Click on their Blog names to see what they are making…dang cute!!]
I am happy to report that the whining ceased!! EUREKA! My copy has arrived!! AND man, what a copy!! I spent the afternoon with the magazine, a coffee…AND a few chocolate bars…HEAVEN! A lovely way to spend a rainy, foggy day!
Yup…it’s a Bonnie Sullivan quilt…a mix of flannels and wool!! Be still my heart! This quilt moved right to the top of my TO DO LIST!! I would have this project cut out if it wasn’t for those %#^* UFOs!
Then there is this Christmas beauty…and if you don’t like this the designer (Yellow Creek Designs) tweaked the pattern and made it into an ‘EVERYDAY Version’… but there is NOTHING everyday about this quilt!
Love them BOTH!! Now I am off to Google, ‘Yellow Creek Designs’…and see what other projects they have to offer! I love discovering new designers…don’t you!! LUCKY YOU…I saved you the ‘work’…just click HERE to see what Vicki Olsen and Jill Shaulis have created for US!
Hope you are enjoying your Primitive Quilts and Projects as much as I am…hey, do I detect a little whining out there??
Have a thrilling Thursday and first day of NOVEMBER and Happy Quilting!~P
