a great long weekend...

Hi Everyone
     What a great weekend we had in Victoria, great sun, finally warm weather and fun with family and friends! It can't get better than that.
     Saturday my mom, brother and I went to Salt Spring Island, we encountered a few delays along the way but once we arrived it was great. On Saturdays they have a great market over there, the colours and smells are so inviting you can't help but get drawn in. Take a look....

Who can resist these little ladies all in a row!

    On Monday in Canada we have a Holiday so a few of my quilting buddies, new and old got together and had a quilting bee! We sewed from noon till 9pm! I had a lot of fun and really accomplished a lot. I have been working on my samples for my fall classes and they are coming along great. Have any of you used the Twister and Lil Twister ruler? It so much fun, I love this technique! The Lil Twister uses charm pack (5" squares) size squares to start with and the Twister uses Layer Cake size (10" squares), great fun you really need to try this.

This is the smaller of the two and makes a little table mat.
And this is a lap size quilt. For sample size it is great, but this technique is so easy you can  easily expand the finished size. How did my toes get in there..... sorry!

     Well you can see we were hard at work and had so much fun, the others girls got a lot done too.....well most of them anyway!

   Have a great week!
