So my children were having “superhero” day at daycare last week.  Bring a superhero outfit she said.  Where does one find a superhero outfit in the middle of summer? The week before that was summer Halloween in the park.  It is hard to find costumes when it is not really Halloween.  A superhero though?  I … Continue reading

The blocks are coming

We are on the final round of the quilting bee and it is my round.  I have requested my block to be the garden fence block.  I just love the look of this block and the whole quilt when it comes together.  I am using these blocks to make another quilt for my kids.  Not … Continue reading

I had posted my works in progress about 2 weeks ago.  On that list were some quilting blocks that I had to do for a quilting bee I am a part of.  The finished quilt is being donated to the BC Children’s Hospital.  This quilt project came together through a forum I am a part … Continue reading

Fabric in the mail

Just a quick post to share a little something I got in the mail today.

The Easy Quilt

I did a 2 day class to make the “easy” quilt.  A crib size quilt for my oldest son.  I needed to find some fabrics to go with the blue, orange and grey colour scheme of the room.  My inspiration for everything for the room comes from the feature wall. I gave a sneak peak … Continue reading

So far behind

I have been really slacking off on posting to my blog which is a shame because I really do enjoy doing it.  I got a new computer for Christmas, a MacBook.  It is great, however it is my first Mac and I am so used to PC. So I am very disappointed that I do … Continue reading

Back from hiatus

I have been missing in action for awhile.  Things kind of got put on the back burner in October as we were approaching our trip to Cuba and while I have been doing some sewing I have just felt extra busy with Christmas right around the corner.  I am going to break up what I … Continue reading
