    I Won - Canadian Quilting Magazine

    I sent in a picture of my Winter Solstice for a contest representing how we envisioned Winter.
    It was given First Prize and will be printed in their summer issue. And guess what I won.. a quilt kit!
    What a feeling!

    It is wonderful. I'll be back in manitoba next week, and I think my vision would have been a lot easier. One piece of white (snow) fabric.

    Do you HAVE to come back to Manitoba yet? The snow drifts/piles at the corner of my street are still over 6 feet tall .

    I'm ashamed to say I don't know if it IS on the Newstands. I joined the CQA to register my long arm business and it was part of the membership.
    But I know if you go to the website you? can purchase back issues.
    But Thanks for the Kudos!!

    It is gorgeous. Congratulations..
    Besides my family, my pets are the most important things to me. I have had birds, a dog or cats since I was about 8 years old. The cruelest thing you can do to me is take my animals away.
