Dear Friends and Family,
"We wish you a Happy New Year! Looking back through the calendar
this year makes me realize how packed full our lives have been..again!
Live life to the fullest is my motto, for sure!"
Once again we were able to spend most of March at Sara and Gianfranco's
home in California and enjoy Mia and Sofia in person instead of on
Skype...although we love that too! Easter was in Ottawa at Christine
Besides spending most of March at our daughter's in California and
Easter at our eldest daughter's in Ottawa, Joan travelled to B.C.
and spent a few days with her brother and his family, before heading
to Vancouver and the Canadian Quilters' Association conference where
she presented an award on behalf of the East Toronto Quilters' Guild
that has now been disbanded after 35 years.
In between the travel and a week at the cottage, there was quilting for
clients and for myself as well as occasional Studio Teaching on the
Umbrella Academy and other productions that kept me busy.
One of my arts quilts, Canadian Seasons, was accepted in the Studio Art
Quilt Associates' travelling show entitled "Season after Season".
The show will be on display at the Texas Quilt Museum from January to
March. Then it will go on tour for three years, including the European
Quilt Meeting, Carrefour Européen du Patchwork in Sainte-Marie-Aux-Mines
in France that we attended a few years ago.
Please note that we will be moving in the summer of 2019 to
Ferguson St. in the centre of Guelph. Phone and email will
remain the same.
