SPRING YET??

Oh dear, spring is here but not really showing lolol..... hurry need somegood sunshine and warmer weather so I can get out there and do a little walking or something ... I have been bad :( need to spend more time here than on Crackbook (fb) I have posted more there than here.... First off I am doing a few things I wanted to put on a bucket list but never got around to... Learning how to play guitar.. wow not easy as way more to it than I thought lol I have been going to sessions for 1 year now and just getting comfy with myself in reading music and playing some chords and strumming patterns..  Should have a few songs to play by the campfire this summer.



Also taking photography classes, yes I had taken a few many years ago but was to comfortable just selecting my Auto mode on my dslr D40 ... hummm ugraded to Nikon D3200 and also got a few new lenses :) woohoo .... so much fun playing around with it... Yes, I did many many comparisons , the newer D3300 had a few more features but I don't think I would use much ex: Wifi and for the price and reviews my upgrade to the 3200 was what I needed and price was right on :)


And yes, I am still sewing lolol I have made a few little projects and posting a few of them... in April, I am going to a quilt weekend for class with Carla Alexiuk  she is a certified teacher for Deb Tucker  ... We will be doing the  Northern Neighbours  pattern ...woohoo looking forward to this 


Well, guess I will sign off for now as I need to do a little cleaning and practice a little tune... here are a few more pics ... Enjoy 

Oh, these were taken with my Ipad... next ones will do with my new camera ;)




Ok this one was taken with my D3200

October=Fall

Well, Fall is here already, not sure how I feel since we had maybe in total 1 week of summer lolol.... Rain Rain and more Rain, maybe should have built an Arc instead of Camp.... Let's hope next two seasons go by fast so we can have a great Spring and Summer (here to hoping and wishing)... Yes, I did a little sewing this last week, made 4 treat bags for grandkids who kinda misplaced 2 of the old ones I made :) no problem still have a good stash of Halloween fabric :) ..... now to finish quilting my Hunter Star Table runner (I used the Deb Tucker's ruler) oh how I love her rulers, think I am only missing a few, bought them back in spring @ our Quilt Guild Show...Oh I also made a quilt top using that ruler for a double size one :) now UFO til after Christmas , need to get other projects done for gifts ;)  Well need to go clean up but I'll be back again next week..

Ciao, Adios, Salute, Bonsoirs , Night night

Fall

I love fall colors, so beautiful, just finished sewing a quilt top Shhhhh can't post pic yet, it is a Christmas gift.   Also this summer at camp, I brought my ken (more) to made get some quilting done, wow I surprised myself I started and finished another quilt top... have to check out these awesome rulers from Deb Tucker, think I've got most of them lolol, love new tools, this quilt top will be on the back burner til I get other goodies done for Christmas then have to share my son's room to quilt it on Gracie II .   I'm in the process tonight or tomorrow in cutting and sewing some more trick or treat bags, daughter has only two I made years ago, and the twins claimed them lolol the two older ones would like one , but need to make them a little bit bigger they said to fill them up, omg to much junk.... So I've decided to wait a little on my gym, bad sciatica and trying new therapist this week and see how that goes, I'm back to eating clean , put on a few from summer and need to fit in my clothes ... well, here's a few pics to keep it interesting for a little...

Ciao, Adios, Salute, Night and Bonjours

OH MY WORD

Oh my word, it has been a longgggg time since I've blogged... Yes I got caught up on Facebook with a lot of Family and Friends and so many different groups of quilters etc... I am also playing around with my camera and new photo program...... So here's the lastest , daughter #2 is due Tuesday in for a "C" section and this will be her 5 boy...Yes she is crazy, oldest is now 10, then 7, then twins will be 5 in March and newborn shortly, wow she will be busy ;)  Now this Amma (me) has been busy with some quilting, just finished big star block (queen) on my Gracie II and next big one will be sent out, omg to big for it lolol , now working on twins bday quilt (shhh) they keep asking for another blanky and of course I'm a solfty so they will get another one since they are in twin beds and their other quilts were for crib...I have also been going to gym (The Basement Fitness) doing weights  and once again registered for the Warrior Dash  2014 in Horseshoe Valley (Barry Ont) since I did the 2013 and had a blast... Spring is coming soon and we will be starting up the work on the inside of camp , when we moved after retirement , we never thought we'd be so busy lolol, no I don't think I'll return to work full time but driving school bus is a part time thing and maybe won't do next year so I can get busier hehehehe

We had a wonderful Christmas will most of all my family here, one year daughter #1 and family will share with us and also New Year 2014 will Rock.
