First Post of 2015!

Hi Everyone!
I hope you all had a fantastic and safe holiday and are off to a great start in 2015!

In my last post I showed some quilt blocks that I was working on. Sadly this is all that I have done on it during the holiday. It was a very hectic break for me, so the quilt top is completed. But it is missing the three B's : borders, backing and binding! Its never too late to work on a Christmas project, right?

Now, what did I get for Christmas, you might ask? As you can see by the photo below, I got surprised with a brand new handmade hutch for my guinea pig! (Yes, his name is Pig) My boyfriend made this from scratch, it has a pull-out bottom for easy cleaning, a little hide-away so pig can burrow, with a door so that I can get him out of it if I need to, a ramp that leads to the upstairs, and the top opens fully for easy access to clean and feed mister Pig. Photos of Pig inside his new palace will follow. :)

I had a few adventures in some small towns, East of where I live in Ontario, and I came across this monument of a quilt. I was here about 5 years ago, when I did a trunk show presentation for one of the local quilt guilds. I admit I had forgotten of its existence, but it made me smile and made my day! Are there any needlework monuments where you live? Or have you ever come across any? If you know where this particular one is, then you are awesome and we need to be best friends. ;)

 Wishing everyone a great new year!
