Sometimes a small thing you do
can mean everything in another person's life

I have a tip for you.  It will save you hours of work.  Believe me, I just went through every photo on my computer to put this Smilebox together.
1.  Take a photo of your work when it is completed.
2.  Download it to your computer
3.  Open a File/Folder.....whatever it is called in your programme
4.  Mark the folder....completed quilts of 2015 or perhaps completed works of 2015
5.  Save the photo into this file
6.  In January of 2016 make a slideshow of your work.
7.  Be amazed at how much you completed!
     and you have a record of everything you have done.
Smilebox is free and it is so easy to use.  I do have a membership because I like all the extras that it gives me.

Cleanse, cull, purge

call it what you will.  I've sure been doing it.
I have found some interesting things during my travels through closets, cupboards and drawers.  I found two pages about copyright I had completely forgotten about.  I wrote to the girl that writes the website and have permission from her -- in writing -- to use the next three pages (it has been updated since then) here on the blog.  Remember copyright laws are international!  USA laws are the same as ours.  You break the copyright law on an American product, on writing, on patterns, on anything here in Canada, and you are just as liable as if you did it in their country.
The next three photographs (I did screen shots) are interesting.....

I found all this information on
and it is an interesting read.

Okay that's my spiel about copyright.

It's coming up to quilt show time again.  I know it's the almost end of January, but guilds are now listing their shows on the CQA website.

You can find them here.....
Click on a month, click on a province name and the shows will be listed.  Don't forget Quilt Canada is in the west this year.

Easter is on the horizon too.  Looking for something different, unusual, absolutely cute!  Check this out.

These are very cute.  I made them a long time ago with a group of girls.  They come in so handy.

Now this is supposed to be an original design, but somehow I question that.  Anyway, I will give you the link:
