please allow me to introduce myself

Well, I guess I will give blogging a try. I enjoy the inspiration I get from reading other bloggers and so maybe my quilting adventures will be interesting too. Please bear with me as I get my bearings in the blogging universe. 

Also, quilting is a new passion for me. I also knit all the time. I am sure that knitting projects will find there way here too. 

Oh, and about me. I live in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, with my family and pets. When I am not working at my busy, demanding, stressful, fulfilling, exciting, (insert adjective here) day job, I try to fit as much quilting time in as I can. I also have to fit in time with my kids, exercise, volunteer work, gardening, shopping, renovations, and whatever life throws our way, so the quilting time is variable. However, I am loving the quilting I am able to do and maybe sharing it will make it even more fun.

Recently I made a quilt for one of my sons. He wanted a red quilt, so I made him City Tracks which is a pattern by Cherry House in her City Quilts book. Here is a close up, I will share more about this quilt later, and by then I will figure out how to post a link to this excellent book.
