Quilting Arts Magazine – October/November Issue

Good morning from a beautiful morning in Calgary,

It is the beginning of October in the city; the leaves are changing color, turning the city into a golden spectacle.  At home, the trees have gone from a deep red to gold to oranges, ,and all the colors in between.

It is a lovely day today, and I sit here in my studio looking out the window and see the sky is blue, no clouds in sight.  So, I will work some and then go and mow the lawn for the last time this summer.  On Tuesday they are coming to winterize the sprinkler system, a sure sign that fall is coming.

But .. in the meantime, I am planning on enjoying the nice weather.  I will go sit in the sun and listen to the birds, go for a walk and take my camera to capture some of the colors and textures around.

I have been working nice and steady these past few weeks on two new projects, which I am happy to say are finished, bound and sent on their way to Quilting Arts Magazine for a new article that will appear on the December/January issue – their 10th Anniversary Issue.  I am very excited about it.  I hope you will be too.  I can’t tell you any more about it,  you’ll just have to wait to read the magazine.  It was so close to the deadline when I finished the quilts that I didn’t even photograph them!

On another note, the new issue of Quilting Arts Magazine (October/November) is out.  Look at page 53 and you’ll see a photo of my art quilt “Sopa Rosita”, a finalist in the Quilting Arts Calendar Challenge 2011 which received a Judges’ Choice mention.


And now, I’ll leave you with one of my favorite quotes from Robert Fulgum:

“Be aware of wonder, live a balanced life, learn some, and think some, and draw and paint and sew and sing and dance and play and work every day some”.

I love reading comments, so feel free to send some my way.  And … once again, thanks for reading.

Until I blog again …
