Above is a picture of a sweet, vintage quilt kit I have in my collection and will be making up for sale. All you lovers of retro - and retro is very in right now - will love it! If you are interested, act now as I only have the one and usually my quilts sell quickly when customers see me working on them.

This is an autumn picture of the barrens near Duncan's Cove , Halifax Regional Municipality in Nova Scotia. I think this is a good example of why many Nova Scotians long for home when we are away. This area is less than a half hour drive from the downtown core of Halifax and anyone living in this city can easily access the great outdoors.
This is the favourite time of year for visitors to the province and many older travellers with no children in school are here to take in the many festivals and events, such as Octoberfests, Celtic Colours Cape Breton music festivals, and last but not least our own Hall's Harbour Quilts at the Harbour 9th annual quilt show and sale to be held this year at the West Hall's Harbour United Baptist Church Saturday,September 29 10 to 5PM and Sunday, September 30 from 12 noon until 5PM. Plan to attend - contact me at: for further info.
The magnificant colours in the photo above inspire me to attempt a quilt on the subject of autumn and a pictorial quilt inspired by one of Joe Norris' fall paintings is in my future.
