There is still so much sorting to do at my parent's home before we sell the property. I have a new appreciation for what many of my friends and acquaintances have done in similar situations. It is difficult to sort through the collection of things gathered over the 50+ years of living in the same house. These things are filled with memories, but it is impossible to keep this collection in homes of the remaining family members. It is an emotional journey.
I have been sewing a bit this week. I decided some time ago, that it is time to find a use for all the HST's in my stash. I know I have in excess of 1000 of these bits. On Bonnie Hunter's site Quiltville .com I found some ideas and in conversation with my friend Peggy, I have collected a few more ideas. Although I have a large number of other projects in process, I want to make some headway with this one.
I returned home on February 20th after my trip to Phoenix and on to Victoria B.C. This was a wonderful experience. My cousins Janet, and Karole are so much fun, and quilters as well. We stayed at Janet and Ross's Phoenix home, and Janet drove us to a number of interesting spots in the area. Then I was off to Victoria to visit with Mike, Kim, and the girls. Although I had a nasty virus while there, it was still an experience not to be missed. After I got back to Nova Scotia, it took a bit to get my normal life back in place. I have a couple of pictures to post of the AQS quilt show in Phoenix. While I took many photos, I will post only a couple. If any quilter has the opportunity to attend an event like this, I hope they will avail themselves of that opportunity. I know I will.
That is it for tonight. goodnight
