And speaking of advice, my sister was "let go" after 18 years of working for Purolator, so I recommended that she use this found time to learn to quilt. She picked out an easy pattern to start with, purchased fabrics with a star theme, and mastered rotary cutting very quickly. Here are the squares she had cut out to start piecing together. Don't you love how she carefully organized all her pieces?!? She sewed up the 4 patches and here she is with her blocks layed out on the floor. Now she is sewing the rows together and so far is really enjoying it...I am hoping she will fall in love with quilting and it will help her to get over this terrible experience of losing her job.
