    I'll ask a friend a bit closer to the area if there is anything fun going on like their human dog sled races.
    Working for a living interferes with fun, but it pays for it.

    Lovely quilt ... great design!

    ENJOY Canada .... Works4Me is certainly a LOT closer to your target area, and I'm sure will help you.

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.

    Here is my Patriotic quilt. It was made for my husband's family reunion. It has all the names of his mother's family that served or is serving in the military. They raffled it off and made over $600. I also made one for my church with members names on it and donated it to our youth group to raffle off with the proceeds going towards their summer trip to Ft. Caswell, NC. The eagle is from a panel and the eagle, stars and wavy stripes were machine appliqued on. All of the names we done by machine embroidery.

    Hello everyone, Happy St. George's Day, Patron Saint of England, and the day I start work on the first panel of the Diamond Jubilee quilt - it will be a red rose to represent England. Wish me luck - I hope it doesn't turn out more complicated than I hoped.

    The quilts posted here so far are fabulous. Very American.
