New Normal

It is hard to believe that is been about a month since I have found the time to post something on this blog.  I have been busy, but not with a lot of blog-worthy happenings. The quilt you see below is one I am making for my oldest daughter Kyla and it has been on the longarm since before Easter! Everything else seems to have taken priority, but I am hoping to get it finished this weekend.

 One big change in my world is that I have taken on a part time job outside of my quilting studio.  I am working in the office at our local funeral home two days per week. I have been at that for a little over a month, and I think it will be a great fit, but I am searching to find my "new normal".  Two days outside the studio should leave me plenty of time with three days plus weekends and evenings at home, but it just hasn't felt that way lately.   

The one project that I have been busy working on is the Taras Shevchenko 200 Celebration piece with the Ukrainian Immersion students in Dauphin.  All 91 blocks have been coloured, heat set and pieced together.  Ready to hit the longarm!

The students did some really neat things and I have been enjoying seeing this one some together.  The deadline is looming so I have to keep up the forward momentum...


  1. Good to hear from you again! I know how life gets in the way!

  2. Love the stitching on your daughter’s quilt-that thread is perfect, too. And your students have done a wonderful job with their blocks! I have made many such collaborative quilts throughout the years and I always enjoy seeing what the kids come up. Your group has done a great job!!
