Our mantra Canadians supporting Canadians
I have lived in various countries - starting off with Ireland - where I was born and met George my supportive other half. Moved to South Africa where we had our 3 wonderful sons.
UK and Ireland were countries we lived in before coming to Canada and now we are home!
I am a grandma! What a wonderful, rewarding name to have! Two girls, Anya and Nella both with be 6 in 2017 and the older two boys, Little George and Liam will turn 4 in February. Baby Sean is 2 and the Twins are 18 months.
Truly there is no greater joy than feeling I am a small part of these little peoples lives. Nella, Little George and twins are in London UK so we do not see them as often as we would like.
Anya, Liam and Sean are in Boise Idaho and we hope to be there for Liam's birthday in February.
Our youngest son moved from Vancouver to Toronto a big promotion with his company, the best news to share he asked his wonderful girlfriend to be his wife and she said Yes! Hopefully a wedding in 2018.
I am artistic - a gift that I am very thankful to have, painting moves me to another world! Business and challenges feed my soul. Never knowing enough - pushes me to try harder.
Quilting and Applique give me enormous pleasure - cutting is not a joy! I remember the days before rotary cutters, cutting mats, rulers and templates- I loved what I could accomplish then but OMG what a difference now!
Fabric Cutters have changed my Quilting world!
When time is short - George can cut out a quilt in a very short time and I have all the pleasure of sewing! I With StitchintheDitch my time for sewing and quilting has been greatly reduced!
I am honestly very indebted to my Fabric Cutting Machines- Yes! I have more than one -- how can I give you advise if I do not use the products?
Sizzix make it easy for us - their machine will take all companies dies!
Sizzix are King as far as die cutting machines and Quilt and applique die shapes for Quilters. A great company to work with, they respect our Country and business.
Always helpful and informative. Quilt manager is a wonderful lady.
