We've had an unusual Spring, May was very dry and June the skies opened up several times. Then we were almost 15C above usual temperatures. So to wake up to cloudy cooler weather was a bit of a treat this morning.

I wanted to spotlight a booth at Quilt Canada by my friend Uschi Greiner. She is one half of a former team that brought in Sue Spargo to teach in Vancouver twice. I've known Uschi for several years first working in a quilt shop, then owning one of her own and now as a dyer of wools, silk velvets and linens along with teaching how to stitch with wool.
Woolies on the Coast should be up and running soon.

I enjoy seeing what people can do to recreate portraits in cloth. It can be very challenging to get it right I find and there were some wonderful quilts showing different ways at Quilt Canada this year.Fates of Maasai Men Triptych by Krista Zeghers was a wonderful example. She showed a young warrior.
