Happy Thanksgiving to Canada-welcom neighbours

I am very far behind but when you applique it just seems to take up alot of time!!
photos below are from my night that I am in an applique group at Cock-a-Doodle Quilt store in Toronto. I am sorry I can't remember everyones name but sure do love the diversity of everyones work!! below this lady designed her own applique from this pic amazing isn't it!!

another lady is doing the Rosemary Makham pattern Woodland Creatures this girl is just a beginner appliquer and I think this is just the right challenge for her

Nancy one of the instructors at the Doodle had a Kim Diehl class and this is what they made love it!! Nancy teaches beginner applique classes at the Doodle

Virginia another applique enthusiast is appliquing the borders on this wonderful Dorothy Baker quilt..isn't it just darling...Dorothy makes gorgeous patterns and you can visit her on her blog she is currently making monthly patterns (free) for Sweet will see her link on my side bar.
Speaking of Dorothy I won her free giveaway and she mailed it on Friday I got it on Monday!! amazing!! It was a huge package of eveything you needed to get started on an embroidery project perfect for her Sweet Nostalgia. Thank You Dorothy!!

This lady came in and was not in the mood to do any applique but when she pulled out these wonderful Irisis.. I think she felt the thrill in the room and this gave her great incentive to work on them by the end of the night she couldn't wait for the next session.. which by the way I have already signed up for...

Well I give thanks for being able to enjoy all your wonderful blogs everyday and to be able to share what is going on in our neck of the woods.. the weather is just perfect now with wonderful rain that gives out great fall colors..soon I will have all the gardens to bed for next spring and then I can totally work on quilting...oh the concept is just so exciting.
Happy Thanksgiving to those that are sharing..
