Oh my gosh, I am so glad to meet you!

I'm Vivian and I live in the Yukon Territory in Northern Canada.

While I am a newish quilter and love the freedom and feel of fabric, my first love is needlework. Give me a needle, apiece of linen and some gorgeous thread and I am a happy girl.

I also tend to have a knit scarf on the go, and a book in every room. I like to keep either my head or my hands active.

Please feel free to have a look around my blog (inmy google profile), I look forward to visiting yours!
