It's winter here in Canada. The days are short and I'm spending most of my time in the sewing room. It's a great time of year for creating!
I'm getting ready to head up to Duncan BC in a couple of weeks to take a class with world-famous quilt artist Katie Pasquini Masopust, and I'm VERY excited. I've already started thinking out of the box on quilts I'm working on, and the timing of this Design Explorations workshop is just perfect for me. There will be lots to tell you about in the next newsletter!

I've just donated this quilt that I made in 2007, to our local Alzheimers group. It will be part of a fundraising silent auction this weekend.
Last month I did a contest to give away copies of Quilters Connection magazine with my pattern for a hand mola cushion.
I'm happy to
announce that one copy went to Nancy Anderson in Pennsylvania

What I'm Working On
I'm still working on the 10-quilt challenge with my two friends. I have completed four pieces now. Seven left to go! Here's the latest; it's called "Wave Theory":
The big news for me is that next week I'll be taking a 2-day workshop with Katie Pasquini Masopust! One of the top art quilters in the world, she has an extraordinary body of work that I've been aware of almost since I started quilting. I am beyond delighted to be taking a class from her, and it's only an hour's drive up-Island from me in Duncan. I know I'm going to come away with new design skills and charged up to get quilting!
Our schedule is clear until April 15th in Coupeville, WA. I should be able to get a whole lot of quilting done by then!
John continues to organize our huge tour in 2014, again around the perimeter of the US and Canada. The confirmed gigs are up on the website already. He has just confirmed our very first appearance in West Virginia for June 2013!! We STILL haven't sung in Mississippi or Arkansas. Help!
