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.

Oh did I mention I'm also doing a UFO busting Challenge with Patricia Sloan??? and also a follow along  (globetrotting) with her...check this out either on her blog @ : http://blog.patsloan.com/2014/01/pat-sloan-im-happy-to-announce-globetrotting-my-free-block-of-the-month.html

UGGG

UGGG, what happened to the months :(   I'm in a slump.... still have to get the Big Block quilt on my frame to quilt it so I can start my other projects (longggg list of want to do's).... I'm busy but not accomplishing anything and feeling tired etc... think I'll be going back to Doc's, just realized since he changed my prescription (lowered my thyroid meds) I'm not feeling like Me.... We are however most weekends at camp and trying to get hydro connected and need many things done so they can connect.. And the gym will have to wait, no energy left I hate this....blood work is in order for sure.. Also, need to go on facebook less, yes I do have a lot of quilting groups on there, so I'll check once and that's it... I have been browsing my blogger friends pages and I get really inspired, want to do the all but I realize I can..I have to make a list of which ones I REALLY want to make ..That'll be a tough decision lolol.. Well enough self pity and on forwards... Miss blogging, but I will be out at camp for July and August, we will be back home here and there and I WILL blog... so off I go, making my list and checking twice hahahahaha.... Ciao, Adios, Salute, Night nite, Bonsoirs mes amis...

World Wide Quilt Day

Sunday today and I am sure Pooped....lolol.... went quilting from 9am to 8pm along with some of our beautiful ladies from our guild (Rayside Balfour Stitchery Guild) here in Great City of Sudbury, Ontario.... We had loads of fun, some of us crazy gals went in our PJ's, had to make it a comfy day right :)  that would be the only time I stay in jammies all day LOL... there was a lot of cuddle quilts that were finished up and all thanks to one lady who's been this leader of the charitable quilts Marg Dagget and some who helped her this day..some of us worked on our own, and of course I sewed up a storm to realize after all this that I had screwed up OMG,, too funny, some said they would just chuck it and start again, but no, it's my screw up so I need to fix it (stubbornness I think lol) have to make this right, sooooo started today to re-sew and become a nice green frog...rip it , rip it ... I hope that you wonderful ladies had a sew  great day yesterday :)... here is a few pics and I'll be hiding away in my room LOLOL....Ciao, Adios, Salute, Night nite, Bonsoir mes amis..

Where's Spring

Alrighty, yes I've been slack in posting this winter....got caught up doing lots and not taking the time to write.. And Yes I have been sewing and trying to catch up on some UFOs I have a few more to go then in between of course started more LOLOL... I also went to Manitoba for a girlfriends reunion/curling bonspiel  that was long due. We had curled for many many years together then one of our girls moved southern Mb and hadn't done so since 1999, I have moved back home to Ontario after 27 years living in Thompson Mb...so from Brandon Mb, Lac du Bonnet Mb, Winnipeg Mb and Sudbury Ont off we went to Portage la Prairie...Oh my, was like old times, our friendship never ended, we are all caught up on what's happened during the years and like I said , it didn't feel like we were apart... I guess when you have friendship like that it never fades aways....I also started before Christmas going to the gym "The Basement on King" wow, was I out of shape, and now trying to follow the Paleo Lifestyle (I cheated a few times but it's OK back on track) ...... Anyhow back to quilting, I just got stuck on Missouri Star Company (and still am) and had to try out some of the tutorials lolol... I've posted a few pics but not quite done, have to quilt the Big Star one and starting a new single size one this Saturday with ladies from our guild (a little quilt retreat) and just happens to be World Wide Quilt Day..woohooo.... So, anyone have an idea where's Spring...... wow Mother Nature must be pms'ng lolol... can't wait for snow to blow...haven't even see a Robin yet...how about you???  well, I'll be posting pics of this Saturday, hope yous are all going to stitch away the Day.... Ciao, Adios, Salute, Night nite, Bonsoirs mes amis :)
