The quilters I know are generious and kind people.
Friday November 25, 2011,

It was my 77th birthday and a day I volunteered to help Meghann and Linda deliver the Teddybear quilts. They were made by members of the Thunder Bay Quilters Guild for the Christmas Cheer Fund. We had a total of 114 Teddybears and quilts, 2 extra quilts and a number of pillowcase. All the donation were made with hopes of making some needy children very happy. We are so proud of our Quilters Guild members. Thanks to all.

At our monthly quilt retreat we exchanged mug rugs and donated small bags with toiletries for Faye Peterson house for abused women.

Ellen made this mug rug, and I won it.

Marie made this one for me.

I made a special one for Maria. A great lady.

Joan won the red one I made.

May 2009 I bought a Husqvarnia Designer 1 from Diana at Patchworks. Since that time it's been sitting on the floor under my sewing table. June 2011, I bought Husqvarnia Sapphire 835, but I had so much trouble trying to sew with Mono Poly thread, I returned it to It is a great company, they let me buy a different new machine with almost full credit for my Sapphire.

November 20, 2011 Heather took me to the border to pick up my Janome 7700.

So here is where I am now. I gave my sister my Pfaff, sold the Designer 1 to Karen, sent my Sapphire back and now I have Janome Horizon 7700

Husqvarnia Sapphire 835.
