Valerie Moss: Who am I (217)

First, Happy Birthday to ME! It was a FAB-O day spent with waking up to a special card and goodies from my hubby, a surprise visit from my favourite Auntie and great lunch with my Sis; but enough about me:)

This is my regular position these days…I never thought doing 5 blocks of the months would marry me to my studio…well of course I did – it was on purpose!! I’m in love with fabrics, stitching (ask the callus on my finger) and all things to do with quilting. I sleep, eat and breathe it. This is what I was born to do…be a quilter. Since opening and starting this business, when asked what I do, I’ve started saying “I’m a quilter by trade” hmm not sure if this is a “trade” per se but that is how I feel and that is who I am and that is what I get paid (not much) to do…so in my books it’s a trade. 

I love being surrounded by inspiration by my bloggy blog friends and being connected to online communities all over the world – it’s truly an amazing gift – this social networking online world and YOU commenters, friends, encouragers and die-hard quilters alike:)

Sew, these days have been spent working on the 100 pies and tarts blocks I have to complete this month (big shout out and thanks to Kathy B for helping me), one of the cutest Truly Scrumptious Blocks, the most adorable sleigh in our next Crazy Christmas block, 2 amazing villages to visit in our next month of Hocus Pocus Ville as well as the new journal blocks in Life is Beautiful. These 5 boms in my life are what makes Valerie’s world go round and I LOVE them!!

If you have any suggestions for the next chapter of block of the months for Pastimes Online, leave me a comment or send me an email with your ideas as I’d love to hear them. Until next time, stay happy and creative.

  1. Happy Birthday to you Valerie! I am so glad you are doing these blocks of the month. I love them and I love your blog. Quilting is my life too! Will think about what I would like to see you do next for BOMs!

  2. Happy Birthday to you! I was wondering if you were crazy with all of the BOMs you have going! But I guess it suits you. I am having trouble keeping up!

  3. Happy Birthday to you!!!!!!

    II cannot believe I had a life before quilting. What the heck did I fill up my time with?

    Thank you Valerie, for giving us a wonderful place to visit, a place to have fun and work together (from a distance) on our BOMs and a place to grow friendships. I feel peaceful and creative when I stop in.

    Even though we're still in the early part of this years BOMs, I'm still excited about what's to come next. New fabrics, new patterns, the possibilities are just endless and make me smile from ear to ear. Yay!

    Take care, hope your day is amazing.
