One of my favourite designers is Donna Bayliss of By the Bay Needlearts. So when I decided to join a round robin this year I knew I had to use one of her designs.
I found one that would work perfectly for a group of stitchers.
It's Funky Flowers from the March/April 2013 issue of Just Cross Stitch.
I hope the other ladies enjoy it!
I also signed up for the Longest Days quilt retreat at the quilt shop in June and a quilting class in May. Have you heard of Judy Regan? She is a quilt instructor from Juneau, can't wait!
And for some exciting news I have been holding out on until now. I have a new job! It is a very positive move and I am very happy. For the last 8 years I have worked as a legal assistant in the residential school claim process. Because of the content (google IAP process if you want to learn more, I won't traumatize you here) and because of my daily contact with clients in crisis, I have had a difficult time emotionally and have worked really hard at trying to maintain a healthy home life (quilting has been an amazing outlet that has helped me be there for my family). After 8 years, the time has come for change and I am now in a completely different field working with a local utility company. It's a great change for me and I already feel the difference.
Now let's see what we can accomplish when our hearts are happy!
