Saturday plans and a winner!

The sun in shining in Vancouver, a rarity this winter. I really should head up the mountain for a ski or snowshoe and take advantage.  But it's COPS day! Not to be confused with a policeman's national holiday, this acronym stands for Creative Ongoing Process Session.  My guild felt it was a much more positive spin on the more well-known UnFinished Objects moniker.  So, instead of enjoying the sunshine and fresh air, I'll be sewing with my friends.  Equally enjoyable.  I'm working on a long-standing project for our bed that I hope will be ready for our bi-annual show in June. I haven't really talked about it here, because it's one of those projects that I am very excited about, but I knew it would take a long time to complete and to be honest, I didn't want any pressure or expectation put on it.  Here's a clue,in the form of a picture taken a year ago! Hopefully I'll have more to show you in the coming weeks.

Proverbial Quilt - A start

Before I go, congratulations are in order for lucky comment #15.  Oh! It's double N Dianne, the very same who accompanied me on the road trip to acquire the Spring 2012 edition of Stitch for the giveaway!  She's got a copy, so you all get a second chance.  The random number generator was only so happy to try again and this time, #36 gets it. Congratulations to JoLynn at West Side of Straight



Have a wonderful weekend. I hope the sun is shining where you are, too!

Congrats to JoLynn and double N Dianne! Can't wait to see your finished quilt; love the fabrics you chose. Just south of the Canadian/US border from you so I'm enjoying the sunshine too! A nice change from all the rain, snow, etc. we've had!

I have been wanting to make the Proverbial Quilt for.ever., but with a different phrase. Although I like the one in the pattern a lot too and I'm not sure I want to go through all the math required to change things up...
