WELCOME TO THE EXPLORE FIBRE BLOG
for the BEAT THE WINTER BLUES blog hop
hosted by the Quilting Gallery!
Take a look on the right to learn a bit about me. I teach and speak all over Canada and I'd love to make an appearance at a quilting event near you. I'll be silly, creative and fun with an aim to inspire.
The best way I find to beat the winter blues is quilting of course! But if I am looking for some family time or a breath of fresh air I get all dressed up in my warm outer gear and go for a walk as if it's the spring. You'd be surprised how beautiful nature is when you walk in a season that you normally wouldn't venture out. From the beautiful frosted trees to the lovely ice formations, you might even find a little treasure that inspires your next art quilt.
I can't say I have the winter blues. Although it gets cloudy and dull here in the winter, we drive up through the clouds to ski in the mountains quite often, so I see plenty of sunshine. Our winters are very mild here in the Okanagan Valley of Western Canada, but I feel for those of you who are caught under a huge snowdrift at this time of year! So here's what you need to do to be eligible for the blog hop prize from Brandy Lynn Designs...
ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS FOLLOW ALONG!
1. Either submit your email to receive notifications when I post a new blog OR
2. Sign up as a follower.
IT'S AS EASY AS THAT!
Be sure to leave a comment telling me which one you did and you'll be eligible for the draw. I'll be pulling names from a Dr. Seuss hat on March 14th.
And of course, if you've signed up for email notifications, you'll be the first to know.
NOW HERE'S THE PRIZE...
INKSATIONS Table Runner & Silk Screen Kit. My latest pattern kit is so fun you'll want to organize a class with your local shop or guild. Add a splash of fabric ink to a contemporary table runner taking the mystery out of screen-printing. It's so CONTAGIOUS you'll want to be silk screening everything!
