Two more days until I take off on my "40th Birthday Cruise/trip" with my high school friends!!! On Saturday I flight to Winnipeg, meet my sister in law for lunch at the airport as she is flying in from Thunder Bay that morning too. Great timing. Then I catch a flight to Vancouver and spent the night with my sister. I am taking her the "Lizard" quilt so she gets an early xmas gift ( and this makes sure I have room in my suitcase for any shopping I might do on this trip). Sunday I meet my friends at the port and board the Golden Princess cruise ship for 3 days at sea. We arrive in Long Beach, CA on Wednesday and spend the next 3 days in this area doing all those touristy things. Then we are renting a car, driving to VEGAS and staying for 3 days!! Did I mention that my friends are just a little bit crazy? Oh I am so looking forward to this trip!
My husband had a great idea that I personalize my ever so common black suitcase with something 'quilty' so I can easily identify it at the airports. (Not only is he smart but he's cute too!!) So I made this little quilt block out of some dyed scraps and velcroed it around the handle. I think that will work great.
So I won't have access to a computer for the next 12 days so my blog will be quiet for awhile. I have a cupboard full of quilts awaiting my attention when I get back so I am looking forward to getting at those once I return.
I have been quilting for over 20 years and have turned my passion for quilting into a home business. Tamarack Shack Longarm Quilting opened it's doors January 2009 on the shores of Schist Lake in Northern Manitoba. I have recently moved to Emo, ON and looking forward to discovering all the beauty of the area and meeting new quilters.
This blog is where I share photos of my quilts as well as my clients quilts. I also enjoy dyeing fabric especially snow dyeing as we have snow 6 months of the year. I have thrown in few personal stories about living on the shores of Schist Lake and now I'm ready to explore and share photos of the area around Emo, Ontario as life isn't all about quilting.
