A couple of weeks ago I had lunch with a group of gals that I have worked with over the years; The Ladies Who Lunch get together once or twice a year as to have a few laughs and get caught up. This time around Elizabeth brought a bag with one of her UFOs in it hoping that someone would finish it up. She's not a quilter, but about 12 years she decided to try it and it's only gotten so far. She'd rather have it finished and that someone use it so she was ready to hand it off. Of course, I couldn't say no.
It's from Fons and Porter's 'For the Love of Christmas' magazine. And see those little samples of fabric hanging out from the corner?

Sew Sisters Quilt Shop in Toronto is hosting Blogathon Canada this week - a week long hop of Canadian quilting and crafting blogs, and I've been invited to link up to it when they swing through Ontario.
Here's how it works. Each day host bloggers from across the country will introduce themselves and their work on their blogs. In addition, they will include links to more blogs from their province so that readers can visit those blogs as well. And the really fun part - each host also hosts a giveaway of some of their favourite goodies from Sew Sisters' shop, so you'll have a chance to win every day of the week. Not only can you win prizes from the hosts, you can also enter to win giveaways on Sew Sisters' blog throughout the week! All giveaways on are open from the date of posting to November 23, so if you missed any go back and enter; international participants are welcome.
Sorry that I'm a little slow off the mark in sharing this info because all of the fun started yesterday, but here are the details and the host schedule; the Ontario hosts will be posting on Saturday. Take a little cross country quilting tour....M
p.s. If you are in and around Toronto and would like to drop by the shop they are at 3961 Chesswood Drive; it is loaded with fabric, notions, patterns and books sure to inspire.
