Well, somewhere it has but not here in Nova Scotia. We have had record snowfalls, major storms, schools closed, malls, banks and liquor stores closed. I feel like I have really been hibernating. This good, old solid house has kept us warm and cozy. So glad we installed the new windows last spring. Our streets are down to one lane and there has been very little traffic go by. My city guild has had to cancel two meetings in a row and my local guild was cancelled in February but we have had to cancel sew-in days and bees.
Work continues on the house, the den is done and eventually I will find the right new couch and some old shutters for the windows. For now we are making do. After much thought and consultation with the experts, Peter took off all the old plaster in the front hall. It was quite thin in some places, think in other. There were lots of holes and cracks, thankfully the painted over wallpaper came off quite easily. Now we are waiting for the dry wall guy to come and install the gyproc, then we can paint. We are still deciding on a colour.
My quilt "Making Do", a picture of which is at the end of the previous post, has been accepted in the National Juried Show at Quilt Canada this year. I am very pleased and happy to be a part of this show. I'd have to check but I think this is my fifth time in the show. Quilt Canada is in Lethbridge, Alberta this year, not too far from Calgary so maybe we will plan a trip to coincide with the show.
In April I am going to be taking over for a week on the website 52 Quilters. Every week a quilter from somewhere in the world takes over the blog, twitter and Instagram for 52 Quilters. It has been really interesting to follow along each week, meeting new quilters and seeing what they are up to in their corner of the world.
