Hello! Just a quick note today, but I wanted to share this with you. I was delighted to find an email from Sheila Gehrke, of High River, Alberta, in my inbox the other day. Sheila writes: "I am sending you a picture of the quilt I made from the Jan/Feb 1978 issue I purchased when it was only available on the newsstand. I had collected all the fabric and when I retired it was my first project to do and now I am an avid quilter. I completed it in January 2001...Quilting has become a great passion for me and I find it such a relaxation in this busy world that we are now in."

Wow! Sheila, it looks fantastic! Thank you so much for sharing with us. Do you have a project from the pages of Canadian Living that you'd like to share? Leave a link in the comments or send me an email, and I'll post it here. Have a great day, friends. p.s. There are only a few more days until the launch of "Get Crafty." If you haven't already signed up, get thee to the subscriber page, because now, there are prizes! Because crafting can be a messy business, we're giving away two Hoover Platinum Collection Cordless Hand Vacuums, valued at $170 each. You might never have to sweep up thread clippings or sawdust again.
