All together now: Happy birthday to...

September is a very busy month for our family. I imagine everyone is busy in September, but with school starting, many birthdays and some new projects beginning our month has been crazy busy.

Beautifully displayed (as usual!)
School is back in! Oh, how I long for the days when the kids were little and September was just another month. It's taken a while but we are all slowly getting into the swing of things.

Speaking of new projects beginning, last Thursday was the first meeting of the Fraser Valley Modern Quilt Guild held at Quilt Essentials. It was a lovely, rainy evening of meeting new fellow sewing folk, good conversations (I especially loved hearing the different sewing methods people use: meticulous vs. the sprawlers) and there were some tasty treats too!  

Not edible but Yum!
Funny I don't mind seeing Christmas stuff (even though it's September) when it's fabric!

Some flowers to brighten the rainy evening!

A work in progress!
I didn't get a chance to take a photo of everyone's quilts but they  were photographed and posted on the FVMQG site

Happy Birthday to us, Happy Birthday to us (oh and Theresa from Quilt Essentials too! She opened the store for our meeting even though it was her birthday day-Thank you!)


  1. I am really enjoying your blog! Thanks for posting and keep up the good work!

  2. Happy birthday month to you! I'm so glad our love of quilting allowed us to meet and become friends- you so rock!!
    And looking forward to our next meeting at QE!

  3. I have to admit my whole world has opened up since first signing up for the Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild. People who love to sew and live near me, could it be true!

    No, You rock! =)

  4. What a cute little quilt cupcake!! LOVE it! :-)
