Farewell to thee, 2018

Seeing as its New Year’s Eve, I thought I might do a quick recap of my quilt year. Although I didn’t blog until later in the year, I was pretty busy at my machine. Here are a few of the client quilts I completed this year

I took on several new clients in 2018 and I hope to increase my client list even more in 2019. Thank you so much to everyone who trusted me with your quilt tops. I appreciate your business so much!

We took a long overdue family holiday to Thunder Bay

this summer to visit family and to say goodbye to the sweetest soul I’ve ever had the honour of knowing.

Grandpa Z was a man like no other and his absence is felt every single day. The loss of this beautiful man was a heartbreaking tragedy that we will never get over. I am so thankful we have a supportive and loving family to help us through it.

While in Thunder Bay, I was able to deliver a couple of quilts that my dear husband’s aunt waited years for. They were memory quilts for her children from their dad’s clothes.

I also gifted my beautiful niece with a quilt for her birthday. Does it matter that I was 4 months late?

2018 found me with less time to work on my own projects but I was still able to start a few things

I also found a killer deal on an embroidery only machine. I haven’t had much time to play with it yet, but I’m pretty excited about it

The very last project I completed for 2018 was a memory quilt for a lovely young lady who graduated from high school in 2017. Her Aunt wanted to make a memory quilt for her, but she was unable to find the time to do it after taking on a new job. That’s where I came in. I was able to get it finished in time for Christmas and word is that she loved it!

I’m spending the holidays in Edmonton with my family and won’t head home until the weekend. I’m pumped to see what 2019 has in store for my little business!

i live on the beautiful Saskatchewan prairie with my sweet man, my two darling boys, our dog trixie, 5 cats, three chickens, two horses, and a zillion frogs. i started sewing when i was 10 and did garment sewing for many years before i discovered quilting. i have been obsessed with quilting since 1994. i am self taught, so i may not do things 'by the book', but i don't think the quilt police are too concerned about l'il ol' me. my quilts are made to be loved and i hope i outlive them all!
