How lucky am I to live in such a beautiful place, and get to experience nature at its best. There is nothing better than sitting on the beach watching the sun set and see the sky warm with such wonderful colours.

Here are some photos I took of the sunset the other day while my girls swam.

Not only am I fortunate to live in such a wonderful place but I am finally getting a quilting studio. I cannot tell you how over the moon I am. For the past several years my students have been asking if I teach classes in Peachland. With great hesitation I always said no. As much as I wanted to teach out of my house  I felt I just didn't have the room to accommodate students the way I wanted. Now that is all chasing. Within the next couple of weeks I will officially have a 400 sqft quilt studio attached to my home. If only I could still do back flips I would post a video lol... 

Have any of you had the opportunity to participate in this years Row by Row? For those of you that are not familiar what Row by Row basically you visit 8 different quilt shops and collect their patterns. You can either purchase their kits or just receive their free pattern. Once you have a minimum of 8 patterns you sew them together and take them back to any quilt shop that is participating the row by row. If that shop has not had a winner and you are the first to bring in a completed quilt then you will win 25 fat quarters. In addition, if you have that shops pattern in your quilt you will win an additional prize supplied by the shop. Here is a picture of my completed row by row quilt... 

The patterns used in the above quilt came from the following (from top to bottom) Katja's Quilt Shop (Kamloops, BC), Linda's Quilt Shop (Kelowna, BC), Pleasant Valley Quilting (Armstrong, BC), Batik Corner (Oyama, BC), Cottage Quilting (Kelowna, BC), Cherry Tree Quilt Shop (Summerland, BC), Tyjo's Fabris (West Kelowna, BC), Thread & Paper Crafts (Salmon Arm, BC).

I took my quilt to Cherry Tree Quilts and won 25 fat quarters and a $100.00 gift card. I was one happy girl. 

Well, keep posted for upcoming pictures of my new studio.
