The Quilt Project

Last Friday evening was the official viewing of the amazing Quilt Project at the Abbotsford Convent in Collingwood. I had a such a great night. Kirsty from Kootoyoo came up with the whole idea and asked 66 people to provide one square each - something original entirely done in red. Seeing all those squares as one, giant piece was such a thrill but it also made clear just how much work was involved.

Thank you Kirsty for coming up with such a great idea and making it all happen.

Here are some pics but for a much closer look, go to: Kootoyoo and check it out.

Mouse is in the house.

Meet Mouse. The we've had her since March. Toby loves/hates her - we just love her...unless she's being really naughty. That happens.

App, app, happy.

I've set myself a little creative task...each day I'm going to do a quick sketch using SketchBook, an iPhone application that I discovered recently.

Feel free to join in. You don't have to use technology...pencil&paper will do just fine.

Here's sketch No. 1. View out a cafe window.
