You correct Flooding in Alberta is serious. The downtown sector of Calgary has been closed for business without power and loads of water and mud everywhere. Families are displaced and many are without a place to stay and shelters have been erected. There is a state of emergency and the Canadian Forces have been called out. The road into Banff National Park ( I was there last summer) is a major highway part is under water and part is washed out. The Red Cross has been involved since day one and providing for those in need. To date I believe that there have been 4 deaths reported. I feel really sorry for the older generation that are seeing their houses destroyed and have no where to go and no one to help them

Here are some pics

Very sorry for the folks in Calgary. Hard, so hard to see your home destroyed.

Golo, I hear you about the freight. I try to keep most of my donations local for that reason.

Here is the quilt I made for the high school ski team raffle this year. It is a free pattern at LynBrown.com called Rock N Roll Quilt. Uses a jelly roll plus yardage.

Isn't that a beauty. I am in FL for the winter and I made 5 so far , I think I am sewed out. Now I am onto knitting for a break. My father passed away in Nov and we flew home for 2 weeks, There will be a lot of estate stuff to get under control when I return . Never a dull moment!

Thanks for sharing your pattern and your quilt is beautiful

LowJane, my condolences

Annmarie, I love that quilt. I really like the colors and would go well in my bedroom just in case the winner doesn't know what to do with it. I hope you raise lots of moola with it.

Hmmm no luck finding the pattern so far, will try again later

Thank you ladies it has been a very busy 2 years, my only sibling lives in Rome Italy so it is not that easy when dealing with an ill parent. Thankfully I have a great hubby ( shh don't tell him it will go to his head)

In the meantime I purchased a few extra accuquilt dies and have been making up quilts with them, the apple core, triangle in a square and the tumbler. I also purchased another flower applique die I have not yet used. The tumbler and the applecore are a big hit with me. The triangle in a square is ok but it is pretty small at the 2" finished square so I am making a stroller blanket out of it for starters.

Never a dull moment in my life!

Last week I went looking for some backing fabric and found yet another UFO. It was partly pinned for 'birthing'. It is now done except for thread cutting. It is mainly wildlife prints. I think it will be good for a boy or a man's lap quilt. Pix probably tomorrow.

It feels good to be working again. Unfortunately, I mislaid my basic sewing feet so I have them on order.  doh

Ann Marie, that's a great pattern. Thanks for sharing the link. I just recently got this book with wonderful animal applique patterns. My next donation quilts (some day) are going to be for children. I plan to make fairly basic quilts and then add just a touch of applique. . . for instance one giraffe and tree rather than a whole quilt full of giraffes and trees. The Rock N Roll quilt would be a nice one to use.

My current cleaning person, who has major problems with a shoulder that was badly broken by her ex, was "hugged" (attacked?) by a shopper at the grocery store where she works, throwing the bad shoulder out of joint. ergo, she was not here today to hang the quilt for me so I got poor quality of picture.
