I want to whine a bit...

Warning… There might be a slight case of moaning and whining ahead...

I have been a busy bee these last few weeks,
At the Cloth Castle I have completely redesigned our website as well as our blog and Facebook pages from the ground up, giving them fresh clean makeover as well as updating all the new stock into our online store (talk about data entry).

At home we have been having a constant whirlwind of showings and open-houses, I’ll tell you it takes a lot of energy to keep the house in a continuously clean state and I just want it sold...ughh,
I also have become one of the Vice-Presidents for our local Modern Quilt Guild, have been busy helping that get up and running, and if that wasn't enough to do on top of my normal work scheduled, I have started working out three times a week with my personal trainer, Chantelle or as I jokingly call her the "Princess of Pain", she is amazing and a I highly recommend anyone in the greater Victoria area to check her out , I also took on the job of building her a new site and running her social media marketing... ehh who needs sleep when you have coffee, lovely, lovely coffee…

But all whining aside, I have had almost no time to quilt, but I did get my blocks done for the block of the month challenge at my guild, as well as finishing off my burly badge, YEAH! I also get some work down of a few UFO such as my HST quilt, and my modern spider web quilt Double Yeah!

 ... I just need to learn how to go without sleep so I can quilt more... I wonder if I can just get a Caffeine IV, that would be a quicker solution than all the coffee I’ve been drinking.... Pictures to follow after my guild meeting!


  1. Congrats on becoming vice president of the VMQG!!!
    We had a great meeting last night, free fabric and prizes galore!
    I loved your name tag too. It got my vote :)

  2. I loved your badge too Bryan! I am really stoked about this months block that you showed us. It will be fun to make and I can't wait to see it put together as a quilt. Your idea of separating the door prize categories was a wise one - well done!

    1. Thank you, it is always nice to hear that you like the blocks, it can be a bit nerve racking to plan one every week.. so thanks for the vote of confidence

  3. I thought that the blocks on the quilt you showed were really interesting.
    I have never heard of appliqueing and THEN cutting it up to piece. The colours were great - no surprise!
