This is a pic of 2 of the blocks I made to make a disappearing nine patch. I have all the blocks done that I need but they are in my sewing room somewhere and I have not gotten around to cutting them yet. another ufo to find and finish.
We have been having snow. It is April 17. I sure hope it is done soon.
This is short but I need to head to bed. I'll try to post again soon.

I took a class in March about art quilting. It was alot of fun. This picture is mine in progress. I haven't started the embellishment yet on it. Interesting stuff. I really enjoyed the class. I have some embellishment done but it is not anywhere near done yet.
One more ufo.
I have to make some butter tarts this morning to take to work. We are doing a potluck for the hospital on Wed. This is the last shift I work before Wed so I have to make something that will store in the frig till then as I live 30mins from work and will not be in Strathmore till before my shift on Wed. I work evenings then. Usually go in early so I can enjoy the lunch too and help clean up.
Makes a longer day but it is only once a year. It is a small hospital and different areas of the hospital take turns with hosting potlucks. We have 4 or 5 a year.
I will be at our charity quilting day on Sat. Took a vacation day so I could attend. My guild does this every 2years. We make quilts and donate them to the local crisis centre in Strathmore and to the StoreFront school there as well. I'm looking forward to the day.
Most years we have 30 to 40 quilts made for this event.
Happy quilting,

Nov. retreat project of a friend. Table runner of Linda P. Just thought that I would share.
It is very difficult to believe that we are into April, especially since we are still getting snow. Hopefully that will stop soon.
My daughter graduated grade 12 this spring. Hard to believe that my baby is 18 and entering into adulthood. Where did the time go????
Happy quilting,
