I confess that my mornings are so routine, you could set the clock by me. Well, almost. But once 9:00 AM arrives and the chores are done for the morning, the rest of the day is crazy!
Yesterday, I presented my Group Quilts presentation to the Kanata Quilt Guild. What a fun guild, and they are HUGE - there were over 160 people on the call! They seem to have taken to Zoom, like a duck to water. They were great!!! So much fun, and I've got an excellent record of ALL of the group quilts I own. There is probably a raffle quilt or two that didn't make the presentation, but that's OK.
Next week, I'm doing two presentations for scrap quilts. I'll have to dig out the information so you could sign up as a guest if you're not a member, or you could pass my name to your guild, and they could hire me to do the presentation for your guild.
OH -- I forgot to mention that the latest issue of A Needle Pulling Thread is now available, and I've got an amazing article in the magazine. Can you tell by looking at the pictures which face I used??

Here's the link to the magazine webpage so you can see a preview of the magazine. It's not expensive to buy, loads of great ideas.
Speaking of pianos, look what I found online. An idea to convert your old piano to a sewing desk. I'd change it up a wee bit more, but it's a start.

I sorted through that pile of paper from the box. Oh boy --- what treasures I'm finding. There's that darn blood pressure card that I lost so long ago. I put it in my purse so whenever I can get back, I can use it again! I don't have high blood pressure - quite the opposite. I'm on the very bottom of normal.

The group laughed when I told them what the temperature was here. Positively balmy in comparison!!!
And when I finished the presentation, I didn't have to pack up the suitcase of samples and head out to a cold car. That was a nice feeling!! I know what -24 is, and it's cold!
I see it's going to be another day for flannel lined pants!
On that note, I'm out of here. WAIT!! What's your assignment for today? Let's get back to the sewing room. What about your scissors? Are they all in one place? If not - that's your mission today. Find a home for them and get them all together! You must have a nice container/box of some sort.
Have a super day and stay warm!!!
