African Quilt

Me again...............
Some time ago I booked into a class to make an African themed quilt with Pippa Moore.
Wow, what fun. If you ever get a chance to take here class you will not be disappointed.
Here is my design wall. Months later it pretty much still looks like that. The animals are stamped and we got them in a kit, the kit fee was $35 and I means you get to choose quite
a lot of fabrics and stamped fabrics and even paper beads.

It's 3 am

It's 3 am and I am wide awake so I thought I might do some catching up.
First a little rant.................small business all over the province are struggling to say in business. These are real hard times. Support your local small business, it's worth it, you get full supports and people who care about your needs. If we don't, there won't be any small businesses left to support. Thanks for listening!
Getting ready for retreat now. Alot to do and prepare. It's going to be so much fun.
Ken and I just got back from Nanoose Bay. I usually do a lot of sewing there but this time I was not motivated at all and did not get any sewing done. I did nothing at all. Slept, read and watched TV. Guess that's what a relaxing holiday is all about huh?

Hi, well yes I do know that it has been quite a long time since I posted.
We had a wonderful Christmas. Kelsey, Sean, Mandy and Kevin all came for dinner.
It was supposed to be a Chinese food fiest, however, since Ken does all the cooking, he decided on beef dip. For dessert we made one of those chocolate wafer log, with whipped cream. It has been a while since I made that dessert so it was fun, actually, truth be told, I just bought the wafers, Mandy did all the work.
After dinner we went downstairs, played loud music and pretended we were rock stars.
Alot of lip sincing and dancing. What a blast!
Christmas Day I invited myself to my sister Terri's for dinner, WOW! it was wonderful, moist juicy turkey, sweet potato, mashed potato............there was more but I just cannot remember. For dessert, Terri made tow pies! Apple and Pumpkin, I had to have a small slice of each with ice cream AND whipping cream. OMG I can still taste it now if I think hard enough. My niece Jocelyn was there with her husband Clint and kids Owen and Camryn. A very good time was had by all.
Great Christmas.............Oh, Ken got me a Pandora gift certificate, I can go shopping!!! Yahoooo! Also he got me a new flat screen TV for my sewing room. Oh boy I love that. I will try to find some pictures for you. Especially the rock star photo's LOL

On my way home.......

On my way home,

I pass a wonderful place,

I never know what I might see.

The scene changes with the seasons.

This wonderful day I saw polka dot mushrooms. Little people with homes is stumps.

Beautifully painted birdhouses and and bird baths.

The beautiful lady who owns the home tells me that all her theme decorations take up quite a chunk of her house.

Butterlys and gnomes, mushrooms and frogs

It is all so beautiful, just when you think you have seen it all, there is more to see.

I will be keeping an eye on this wonderful place. I can't wait to see what Christmas brings.
