Well, all good things must end, and it's time, with the cooling weather and the beginning of the rainy season in Victoria, to get back on the road!
We've had a marvellous summer and I hope you have as well. I'm having a hard time keeping up with the bumper crop of tomatoes I've grown, and for the first time, I have enough to freeze, dry and can for the winter. I even have enough that I don't mind donating a few to the slugs and local raccoon (who seems more interested in the kale than the tomatoes anyway).
I hope the coming of autumn has given you renewed creative energy.

What I'm Working On
I'm sorry to say my time is over at home for creating by machine. It's been an amazing time, and I've learned a lot and stretched myself while making the Refractions quilts. For the next few months I'll be working on little hexagons again on my travels. My current favourite size is 3/8", and I think I'll be doing small pieces - trivet size. That way I can try out new colour combinations and use up some scraps. Here's one piece in progress.
My next adventure will be the Fall Colours Quilting Cruise, departing from Quebec City, QC on the 22nd of September. We'll arrive in New York City on October 2nd.
October 14 Abilene TX concert and
Mock Mola class
October 30 to November 3 We'll have a booth at the International Quilt Festival in Houston!
November 4 Baytown TX
John continues to organize our huge tour in 2014, again around the perimeter of the US and Canada. He's just confirmed our FIRST SHOW IN 2016!!! The confirmed gigs are up on the website. We STILL haven't sung in Mississippi or Arkansas. Help!
