Do you remember that song???? Well; this is our party to get to know each other and find new bloggers. So, get ready to hop for some fun and giveaways!!!!
Hello to everyone hopping through...I hope you all enjoy this post and the hop in general.
This is a party; so let's have lots of fun and visit everyone on the list.
If this is your first time here; my name is Marjorie. My passion is quilting; hand quilting and I am
getting into machine quilting now too. Other than my family; there is nothing I enjoy more than
quilting. I quilt for myself and I quilt for others....it is the only hobby I have found that keeps me
Before I get too involved in my creations; I want to thank Vicki for hosting this hop for us. This is a tremendous job. Organizing hops this size takes a lot of work and time. Thank you Vicki!! You should go to Vicki's link on Jan. 25th for the schedule for this blog hop.
So; on with my introduction.....I live in New Brunswick, Canada which is where you will find the Hopewell Rocks Park. This is famous for the world's largest natural flower pots. These are magnificent to see in person. We are famous for high tides which made these flower pots.
I am in a rural area...very small...where you know all of your neighbors. That kind of community is hard to beat. I take part in an annual community turkey supper here; serve around 600 in an afternoon...lots of fun. I think that is probably enough geography...right?? lol
I started quilting over 25 years ago, my mother-in-law taught me. I can't get enough of it; honestly.
Hand quilting relaxes me and I work at it constantly. I bought a Baby Lock Tiara last spring and am learning to machine quilt. I do a lot of hand quilting for other people also. But, you know, since I started blogging 3 years ago; I have learned more than the whole 25 earlier years!!! We are never too old. I owe a lot to my blogging friends and the ladies that I meet once or twice a week with at home. We have a very fun sewing group and enjoy chatting and having our tea while sewing.
Besides my good friends; I have been married 40 years to a wonderful man...have 3 sons, 4 grandsons and 1 grand daughter....they range from 6 to 15 in age.
Now; I am going to show you a few pictures of my work. Before I bore you to death....lol
This is a Quilt as you Go quilt

Take Five....this was done with my sewing buddies; we each made one. The first 2 quilts above were hand quilted; the rest done on my machine.
I won't flood you with more pictures...you get the drift. lol If you would like to see more of my quilts, please browse my blog or my website...Shepody's Quilter. I hope you have enjoyed this.
Now; since this is a party and you have got this far....I have a giveaway for you. All you have to do is leave a comment. I will ship any where at all....just make sure I can reach you, please.
