Hello, my name is Amy

Hello.  My name is Amy and I am a chocolate-milk-aholic.

Hi - this is what I look like!

I am also a fabric hoarder.  I love to sew small projects so I can satisfy a sense of accomplishment and that makes me feel good.  I like to feel good - it beats feeling yucky!  I am addicted to reading blogs and seeing what everyone else is sewing which means that I have a list at least 3 miles long of projects that I would love to try one day. My works-in-progress list is huge but I am working on that one project at a time. Slow and steady wins the race!

I made this for a swap and love it... wished I had kept it! 

I am a Canadian living in London and can't wait for retreat!  Last year was amazing but I did need a full day in bed on the Monday to recover from all that excitement - my brain had not been used like that for a long time so it tired me out!  I met so many of the 'famous' bloggers that I follow and we giggled, sewed, cried and sewed some more.  What a way to spend two days eh?

Trash, Claudia and me at FQR 2012.

This year I believe I am in the carved stamps class, embroidery with Quilt Dad, tabletop doodle stitching session with Trudi and the + snap purse workshop, though not in that order. 

Yummy stack of Siblings Together quilts - mine on the bottom.


What classes are you taking?  Will you be going to The Village Haberdashery on the Friday night - Annie is having a shopping event.  Yay!  The Grange is where I shall be staying so join me for breakfast if you are there too!  I am really looking forward to chatting with the people I met last year and making new friends with the new people this year!  Oh and learning some new skills too!

See you in a few weeks!

Ring finger pincushions - want me to bring them to sell at Quilt Market Saturday night?

See you in embroidery. How funny to see that name tag again. I loved making it. As soon as I read your profile I knew what I was going to do.

I am at the Grange too! I am also a Chocolate Milk addict - Alpro Soya chocolate - I have lost 11 lbs since I banned it from my house. Still hanker after it every day though! Really looking forward to the Retreat but need to get my game on if I'm going to get those mug rugs finished!

Love your post! I wish I could go to a fun blogger retreat like that. Sounds like a blast - have a wonderful time (as if you wouldn't!).

Hi Amy! I'm rooming with Susan in the Grange, too. Definitely see you there for breakfast - we can have an all-Canadian table! Let me know if there's anything small I could bring for you from Vancouver (I say small because my pile is growing daily. I'm not sure how I'm going to get all this stuff to London).

Gah! Reading through the linky list and I see Claudia's comment here it isn't good because I won't be there. So there will be no photo recreation,no being naughty and no general funning about for me. Am gutted! You will all just to hv an ace time so I can follow on Twitter/IG & FB.
