The YEG Quilter
It"s a quilty kind of life!
March has arrived! By the time we flip the calendar over, I will be a grandma! Or "Beppe", which is the dutch word, and I want to keep some of our heritage honored. I'm first generation that is Canadian born, so these 2 babies that are arriving this spring, will be third generation. I'm afraid that some of the simple things that I assume will be remembered, will be lost. My mom has a book that has details of her generation coming to Canada on boats after the second world war. My 'patchwork" style life has a rich history of strong women, making tough decisions. I hope these little ones will one day feel that strength that has been passed down to them. It is still cold out, it may take a few months for this pretty city to thaw out! Well, in the meantime, hunker down and sew! We need all the quilts we can get to keep warm these days!
