  1. I am enjoying your blog, and your lovely patterns. Nice to see such vibrant colours. The Tic, Tac, quilts are lovely, and your snowflakes are wonderful. Plus,since I am relatively new to quilting I have enjoyed your tips, they are much appreciated. I will be looking you up on Craftsy, thank you!! Best wishes from another Canuck.

  2. Thank you for the free "Sesquecentennial" quilt pattern.
    I am going to buy the fabric today.
    When I have finished that quilt I shall buy your "Wandering Geese" pattern, it is so colourful. [another Canuck!]
