We had our first London Friendship Quilters' guild meeting this past Thursday. Our speaker was Glenda Spencer from http://www.stonecottagecrafts.ca/. This past year, she did a mystery quilt for some quilters in her area. This year, she is offering a new mystery quilt for members of our guild and I signed up for it because we all know I need another UFO! The quilt will start with a 12" block in October and each month, we will receive a pattern for a border to add. This will go on for 6 months and the goal is to have the quilts done for our quilt show next October. I have to go and dig into my stash to see what fabrics I will use. I want to try to avoid purchasing any new fabric for this project. You can see a picture of last year's mystery quilt here. I also signed up for our annual November Quilt Til You Wilt day and plan on attending the workshop being offered in November as well. It looks like an exciting year ahead!
I wandered through my garden today and took some pictures of the flowers. I did not notice the spider in the middle of this picture until I looked at the picture on my computer. If you click on the picture, you will get a better view.
