Usually the winter is a slow time, but this winter has been busier than ever. I have been working hard trying to get a quilt done for our bed and also trying to get one made for our Guild's Quilt show this year in April. Who doesn't need a little stress?

Speaking of stress, my friend Donna has just had a little stress lifted off of her. Her husband just got a job as a Canada Customs officer at the Bluewater Bridge crossing at Sarnia, Ontario. Congrats!

I have posted this flyer of our Quilt show, so if you get a chance to attend, you won't be disappointed. There is lots going on. Some great quilts for viewing, some great vendors, a boutique, and a tea room.
I hope everyone is having a great week.

Good Sunday morning to everyone! I wanted to post the pictures of all of the goodies I received from my swap partner Misi from  1890 Gable House Musings 1890gablehousemusings.blogspot.ca
This swap was called "The Humble Heart" swap and it was hosted by Amy from the Blog, Bumble Bee Cottage bumblebeelanecottage.blogspot.ca May I say I was more than thrilled when I opened my parcel. Everything was beautifully wrapped and neatly packed. Misi told me that a couple of her friends made a few of these great gifts, the heart pinkeeps were beautifully created by Theresa Meloon and the Clara Higgens pinkeep was beautifully stitched by Rhonda Teddler. Everything else was Misi's beautiful creations. I would like to thank Misi from the bottom of my heart for making my day by blessing me with these wonderful treasurers. Many thanks to Amy for hosting this great swap. Below are the pictures of what I received. I am truly blessed and will treasure everything. Thank you so much.
