Good day everyone. It has been a very long, long time since my last post. I have been writing mainly, taking classes, taking photos, getting my garden growing, with some quilting on the side. Also, my Dad has been hospitalized yet again; I can’t remember if it’s been three times or four times during Covid. . . it’s been a lot for both him and for his family.
I was so excited to have my very first children’s story published in the American children’s magazine, Cricket. My story, “Trapped and Tangled Loon’ was included in their April, 2022 issue.
It’s a story about two boys at Police Outpost Lake (near Waterton, Alberta) who help to free a loon who has become tangled in fishing line.
I must admit I was thrilled.
Here’s hoping there’s more children’s stories, worthy of publication, in my future.
Insofar as quilting is concerned, I’m getting myself better organized. I’ve sold some of my “stash” fabrics online and will likely continue to sell some more. I really have too many fabrics and can’t see my way through them all. I’ve been working on two children’s bunk bed quilts – one of which will be featured in Quilter’s World magazine in the Spring.
My blogging will be on a much more regular basis now. Thank you all so much.

Congratulations on the publication of your story. Such great news. Sorry to hear your father has been hospitalized again. I can’t imagine how hard it is for all of you. The stash continues to grow even though I sew a lot. I wish I could be diligent about not shopping (LOL).
Congratulations on publishing your childrens story! That’s exciting! I hope your Dad recovers soon. I got my second booster shot last week so I’m feeling safer for now.

One can never have too much fabric. Kim, you just have too little time and endrgy left for your fabric. I bet you have a beautiful stash pile!
I am glad to see you doing all the things you enjoy! Life is short- make the most of every day and always choose happiness!
