Moving On!

 Our third child, Krista is moving on.  She just graduated on Tuesday from The Richard Ivey School of Business from University of Western Ontario.  She is moving to Port Credit and has accepted a job with Bell Canada in Marketing in Mississauga.  For her new place in Port Credit, which is right on the lake, I made her some new pillows.  She wanted to have her bedroom navy and white but  since the room was already painted a light teal blue we added that to the navy and white.

Here she is with her proud Mom and Dad!
 All the graduates have 2 ceremonies.  The first one in the morning is the ring ceremony where they recite a pledge and receive a ring and then in the afternoon they have their official graduation.  It was a busy, hot, exciting day!

 Here we go again with these sideway views.  This quilt is from the Henry Glass collection called "Down Under".  There is a free pattern download but since it was a large quilt I downsized it to  41" x 53".
The kit contains the pattern, all the fabric including the backing and binding for $55.00.

A new pattern by Bird Brain designs.  I've made a kit up in navy fabrics with a cream snowflake background.    The kit sells for $26.00 and the pattern is $10.00.

Family Times

 My husband and I couldn't resist these t-shirts for the twins from the Cat in the Hat store at Universal Studios in Florida.
 Our youngest son celebrated his 19th birthday!  His sister, Lindsay made a very creative cake.  Of course what's a 19th birthday without at least one beer. 

 Here's the oldest grandson, Ethan, almost 3 years old with his Aunt Krista. 
A new project from the creators of  the "Hot Cakes" (cupcake oven mitt), and  "Tea for Who" (tea cozy) patterns.  We now have "Hot Who" (hot pad).  There are 4 different eye expressions.  Pattern is $6.50.  Kits as shown are available. 

I am waiting for some upgrades on the website to make it easier to order.  Therefore you will notice that alot of items don't have buttons, etc.  If you are interested in anything please let me know by e-mail.  I hope to have everything working more smoothly soon.

Calendar of Quilts -July

 Since I am Canadian I changed the July wallhanging of the month to look more Canadian.  The trillium flower is Ontario's flower symbol so I  thought it would work.  There are little yo-yo's for the flower centers.
Here is the picture for the July wallhanging that comes in the pattern packet.

"Tiny Town" Blocks 5-9

 Here are the pictures for the rest of the "Tiny Town" Block of the Month.  I only have a few kits left for those who are still interested in joining.  Details are on the website under "Block of the Month"
