Westshore Quilt Show

    Last weekend was the last show of the season for the Cloth Castle. We were at the Westshore Quilters Guild Show. As usual it was a great event. I have some photos of some of the quilts I really liked.

My helpers.... Miriam, Vandy and Michael. Looks like they need to focus on the job!
Just kidding they are just hamming it up!

Me and Bryan (my other helper)  taking a quick break!

This is a section of our booth, looks a little messy while we are setting up!
 It all comes together in the end.

  We have moved all the stock back to the store and put it all away. There is always a couple days for me after a show when I think....what do I do now? Then we get a new delivery and I get excited and the sewing bug bits again! Doesn't take long for the next project to come around.

There were so many quilts that I loved at the show, well done everyone!

Happy Quilting, Natasha

I Believe She's Amazing Flash Mob - Toronto Eaton Centre

For us all...

It is not to often that I blog twice in one day. Today I received a great e-mail from a friend.
A Flash Mob Dance Video was organized by Kim MacGregor.  Kim created this as a tribute to her best friend Erika Heller who died of colon cancer. Each and every telephone conversation they ever had, Erika would end by telling Kim "You're an amazing woman"! Well, Kim wanted to do something special to honour her friend and this is the result.  Please visit this site as it honours amazing women everywhere.

I think that just about everyone has been touched by cancer in one way or another. This video is a gift for us all. It is a great reminder at how special and unique we all are. You are all amazing.

To all who are surviving and living with cancer, to the people we have lost but remember and cherish everyday. Your amazing!

I miss you friend.


Look who's sewing now!

Hi Everyone

I'm so excited.... my sister bought her first big girl sewing machine! Miriam just bought the Husqvarna Topaz 30 sewing and embroidery machine. Do you think she looks excited?

  It came home on Friday night and right away she had it out of the box and explored all the parts. So my next  question is ..... what is your first project going to be?

I'll keep you posted!

    Sadly I don't have a project to show, I have been very sick with a terrible cold. Just getting out of bed was about my speed. But there is a light at the end of tunnel, today I'm starting to feel human once again. Thank goodness!
    I have been thinking alot the last couple days about the quilt challenge at the Cloth Castle. We are doing a crazy quilt challenge this year. It can be paper pieced, template pieced or traditional. I love the Wool Crazy technique ( thanks Paulette!), so I have starting planning my piece. Just a wallhanging this year though. Well I think I need a nap now, pathetic I know. I HATE being sick.

Here's hoping you are all keeping well and happy quilting.
