- why I decided to embark on this crazy journey of one fibre art video every week in 2014
- what kind of fibre art techniques I'll be featuring throughout the year
- and my favourite tips for fibre art success
Instead of the Quilter's corner today I'll share a story of a student in one of my workshops experiencing fibre art for the first time with a hint of skepticism and we'll also have our monthly segment of the Gentle Judge.
Talk to you on Thursday!

On January 25th TQPM will be celebrating their 3rd birthday with a fun chat online. They have this great online chat group called Pattern Pastiche. It's a virtual place to go to meet online quilting friends, follow along with the challenges or just ask a quilting question and get some great advice from the teachers.

You can enjoy chatting and sharing with quilters and designers. You can create your own blog, join a special group, post photos and have fun with the TQPM family of quilters.
Here are just a few exciting things they have to offer:
2014 BOM - Over the next year they'll be getting together monthly to sew a little 8" block. At the end, you'll have a nice throw to display during those autumn months.

Scrumptious Smoothie Recipe
1 cup of ice
2 apples, peeled and chopped
1 cup frozen fruit (strawberries or mangoes)
1 cup of fruit juice (your favourite -we love mango)
2 heaping tbsps rainbow sorbet
Place it all in a blender in that order and blend until smooth. For no sugar you can replace the sorbet with yogurt or sugar free ice cream - but with my family, this is a winner every time.
Eat well, feel well!
