Blogathon Canada, Eh!

Posted on: November 23rd, 2013 by Lorna McMahon
Did you know there are a whole lot of Canadians quilting and blogging in the Great White North?
For the second year, the good folks at Sew Sisters Quilt Shop have organized a great way for everyone to be introduced to those clever and talented Canadian quilters.

I am proud to be a Canadian Quilting Blogger!
Although I have lived on each of the coasts of Canada,
I was born, raised and have lived most of my life in Ontario.
No, Rob Ford is not my Mayor and I don’t live in or near Toronto.

But at least an hour west of that.

On a nice quiet dirt road.

With cows.

My name is Lorna.

I am addicted to fabric.

And I am quilt obsessed.

There!  I confess!
Don’t change the locks on my sewing room!

I have a penchant for quilt design.

Did I mention I like fabric too?

I am always looking to be inspired by gifted quilters as I travel along on this, my sewing journey.

Please leave a comment.
Then put the kettle on ’cause I’m coming over!

  2. Very nice. I'm in the US but my great great great grandfather came here from Quebec. My ancestors arrived there from France in the 1600s.

    You have locks on your sewing room door? To keep you in or others out? Or maybe it's to hide how much fabric you have! Mmmm, maybe I should get myself a lock! :oD
