Colleen’s Day in Nova Scotia -Guest Blog

Colleen sent a few photos of what she is doing at her home in Nova Scotia. Our friend Joanne in Florida thought it would be interesting to see what people are doing as they  “shelter in place.”  if you’ve followed this blog for six years you might remember Colleen’s cookbook collection post.  Thanks Colleen what a colorful and beautiful quilt.

What are you doing today?  Send photos.

 

Colleen and Her Love of Colorful Quilting

This is a collaborative guest post by two wonderfully creative women who have been friends since forever.

Colleen and Joanne hail from Nova Scotia.  Joanne, living in Florida, collected the photos and good information about Colleen and her love of colorful quilting.

Get to know Colleen and her colorful quilts-

 

Colleen says “I have a huge stash of fabric that I like to look at for inspiration.  Some I have had for many years and almost everything was purchased in the US.  I order online occasionally but it gets expensive with taxes, customs and shipping and delivery to Canada can take a long time – so much for instant gratification!  Currently Florida is my “go to” shopping locale because I’m there at least once a year.  Found a great quilt shop in St. Augustinehttp://www.beesquiltshop.com 

Here is Colleen, looking to the sun.

Colleen’s cookbook shelves were featured on the blog about five years ago

There were two messages from my friend Joanne but I was so excited about the beach glass yarn she sent a surprise a gift, I missed the second.

Here’s what she said –

“Where else would the dollar store be the Loonies & Toonies Store? Canada has one dollar coins (Loonies) and two dollar coins (Toonies). No paper ones or twos.

And the puzzle is set up in a gift/coffee shop where guests are invited to sit a while and puzzle.”
