Fabric purchase at Fraser Valley Quilt show
I bought this fabric at the last quilt show I went to. I seem to be entering a "Japanese theme" in my quilting and purchases right now. I have no idea what my plan is for the big Koi. There was a great book that was pointed out to me that had patterns that would work with the Koe fabric. It was a 9-patch pattern book. I seem to be shopping more than quilting right now. I have just a one side and 1/2 to finish the binding on the baby quilt and then I can start back on my DJ blocks.
I am just heading out the door to go to a wedding this weekend in the interior of B.C. My daughters best friend and Maid of Honor at her wedding is getting married. My daughter will be down from Calgary for the wedding and my sister will also be in Kelowna for the weekend. And my best friend from Vancouver will also be there for the weekend. So it should be a fun and relaxing weekend. I was thinking this morning that the past year has been full of life events. Deaths, births, weddings, empty nest as my last child moved out, and major job changes.
The first two days at the new job went fairly well. It really is very similar to what I was doing before but it was so nice to leave for work at 7 AM instead of 6 AM - that was almost like a holiday itself. I don't have to work at all next week so maybe I can catch up on my blogging and my quilting when I get back from Kelowna. Happy Victoria Day everyone :))
