Tuesday Preview - Canadian Quilt Talk Episode # 63

Welcome to the Tuesday Preview. 

I am so glad to be back at work with Canadian Quilt Talk podcast writing, interviewing and taping the next few podcasts. I've had so much amazing support while I took some time off including comments, letters and more. Here's just one example of a kind heart in the sweet quilting community I'm so proud to be a part of: 

Card sent by Maxine Fairclough
When a follower, listener, or friend cares enough to take the time to hand write a note of support my heart just melts. Maxine wrote to me that she hopes all is well with my family, that she has missed my podcasts these last few weeks, and she's looking forward to this week's show. Thank you so much for the kind words Maxine. And thanks to everyone for the well wishes. My mom is on the mend, cancer free, and feeling so much better. 

And speaking of hand written notes, this week on CQT podcast # 63 I'll be announcing the theme for my next Canadian Quilt Talk Postcard Exchange

Be sure to tune in to the podcast this Thursday at 4pm Pacific! 

For our Canada Day postcard exchange we had over 70 entries from around the world and for this Holiday exchange we want to shatter that number and break 100. I hope you'll join us. Fabric postcards are the perfect way to allow yourself some time for creative play and explore a new technique or idea you've been tossing around in your head. So stay tuned for all the details and be sure to sign up starting Nov. 1st, 2014.  

And now for the topic of this week's show - Halloween is just around the corner and I've been stewing a cauldron of last minute witchy ideas to decorate your home and bring your guests a smile.

Happy Thanksgiving Canada!

Life has just taken on too many twists and turns for me to be podcasting right now. I'll be taking a few weeks off to focus on family, enjoy Thanksgiving and get organized with a super fun plan for my business and get ready for the holidays. 

Stay tuned for the next CQT podcast on Oct.30th when I announce the theme for my holiday postcard exchange. I hope you'll join me for a wonderful way to share a little bit of fibre art with a new penpal far away. 

And don't worry - nothing is wrong, sometimes you just need to take a breath and review the plan to be sure you are sprinting in the right direction. 

Until next time, dream big and work hard in the studio with Canadian Quilt Talk! 

Make sure you stop and smell the flowers once in a while - Brandy Lynn
