Tig - Couldn't Resist (295)

 I recently bought this cute non-descript clock for my studio, it just suits so well..but Tig has this obsession with it. It has a second hand, you see and she WANTS it!

She used to sit here and look out my studio I just love how she "fits" right into Pastimes


She sees that second hand moving and she's there, talking to the clock, scratching at it, meowing at it - it's halarious.

She meows to come into the studio and runs right over to the clock...she's gentle with it but still it's so funny!


Tig (222)

So here's to you cat lovers out there...and to my best quilting pal in the whole wide world - Tig my sweet kitty who'll be 10 this year (how old do cats live anyway?) 

Most any given day you can find her snuggle in some little slice of sun...

she's usually up for a photo opp also :)



Tigs (154)

A quick post today as I'm buried in all sorts of goodies for my upcoming Travellng Quilt Store Oct 2, yes I know it seems like weeks away but hey I like to be prepared sooo I'm cutting, kits, twists and twirls (you'll see what these look like shortly) trying to finish and plan block of the months for next year, if interested vote for the upcoming ones you would like to join in.

Also, Tig's been active in the Studio, loving every minute of the progress around here and of course lounging every once in a while and testing out the new projects...

This is my class sampler of Kites for Kids - starting Sept 27 through Chinook College. Doesn't she look like a little princess? I hope I get to the quilting soon, it's pinned and ready as you can see :)


Studio Updates (142)

So, I thought I would take some cute shots of the studio, as it's starting to feel like home, I love being down here, love the windows, and all of the inspiration around me...enjoy this sneak peak...

An old ladder I found while antiquing throughout northern USA...I've been looking for one for so long and this one was perfect.

I also found a couple of quilts, log cabin that is truly used and I'm sure it's missed as well as a lone star - both are around the 30's and 40's.

This pic is an adorable basket my Mum bought for me which is sitting in an old pear crate and it's full of this new silk floss collection I've brought in from India. These silk flosses come in 116 colours, and are so gorgeous to handle and work with...beauties.


This shelf below, has had a few displays on it so far and this is the newest one with a family of antique irons from various shops...some cuddle up with a quilt books, inspiring signage.... I love this shelf

This picture of Tig was taken right before the Open House, she's inspecting my presentation...Did I pass?

Until next time, please enter for this great giveaway, vote on our upcoming block of the month clubs and leave me a comment with your thoughts - would love to hear from you :)
