Valerie Moss: Who am I (217)

First, Happy Birthday to ME! It was a FAB-O day spent with waking up to a special card and goodies from my hubby, a surprise visit from my favourite Auntie and great lunch with my Sis; but enough about me:)

This is my regular position these days...I never thought doing 5 blocks of the months would marry me to my studio...well of course I did - it was on purpose!! I'm in love with fabrics, stitching (ask the callus on my finger) and all things to do with quilting. I sleep, eat and breathe it. This is what I was born to a quilter. Since opening and starting this business, when asked what I do, I've started saying "I'm a quilter by trade" hmm not sure if this is a "trade" per se but that is how I feel and that is who I am and that is what I get paid (not much) to in my books it's a trade. 

I love being surrounded by inspiration by my bloggy blog friends and being connected to online communities all over the world - it's truly an amazing gift - this social networking online world and YOU commenters, friends, encouragers and die-hard quilters alike:)

Sew, these days have been spent working on the 100 pies and tarts blocks I have to complete this month (big shout out and thanks to Kathy B for helping me), one of the cutest Truly Scrumptious Blocks, the most adorable sleigh in our next Crazy Christmas block, 2 amazing villages to visit in our next month of Hocus Pocus Ville as well as the new journal blocks in Life is Beautiful. These 5 boms in my life are what makes Valerie's world go round and I LOVE them!!

If you have any suggestions for the next chapter of block of the months for Pastimes Online, leave me a comment or send me an email with your ideas as I'd love to hear them. Until next time, stay happy and creative.


Friday: Update I miss you :) (140)

So this summer has been full of holidays and I haven't gotten much done lately around my studio and so my blog seems to be suffering. I've also been sick! Which I hate as it rarely happens to me because I tend to take pretty good care of myself but hey life happens and now I'm sick with a stupid head cold.

I've taken a tonne of pics lately of all of my goodies I been purchasing from the most adorable antique markets, malls and shoppes throughout our travels in norther USA and sunny and beautiful British Columbia.

I'm also starting to get the impression that many of you are also on holidays and like me, not following all of your favourite blogs as diligently as we normally would, is that right?

I hope to be back at it come September because I miss staying closely connected with all of your to-do's and goings-on in the wonderful blogs I read...

So I hope to get back at it soon, get some goods pics out and start back to reading all about all of your YOU soon...

 HELP do any of you have a Stocking Pattern either paper pieced or pieced that you would be willing to share or send me a link to, I need one really badly for our September Guild Meeting....I was thinking more of the Elf style but open to suggestions :)
