Welcome to my blog. My name is Erica and I blog from southern Alberta, Canada in a place where the Rocky Mountains are generally easy to see from my bedroom window and where I am only a short drive from the border which takes me into Montana.
I am married; have been for more than 28 years (to the same person!):
We have three children and they share with us their three wonderful spouses; to get to this point, there were weddings and quilts - all in the past few years!
Sewing and crafting has been part of my life as long as I can remember. I always dabbled in and around quilting but I would say I let it take over the sewing room about 12 years ago. I really liked very traditional patterns and fabrics (e.g., Civil War) but then one day, a few years back, my tastes changed overnight and I embraced contemporary (some call it modern) design and fabrics. The truth is, I like all kinds of fabric (except batiks, don't like those) and try to make the best choice for each project I take on.
This week, I have been working on a table runner based around one of my favourite designer's (Lizzy House) newest line - Catnap!
Other things I really like to do include going to Disneyland and taking Disney Cruises (are you sensing a pattern, there?) In case you wonder the answer is no, I do not have a house full of Disney stuff, and I'm not trying for that. I do, however, like mid-century design and there are a few vintage attraction posters at Disneyland that might find their way into the family room, one day. I also like to play outside; how could I not want to when outside looks like this?
