BACK TO QUILTING.


I'm starting off by stating the obvious for those of us living in Ontario this past weekend. It felt like "two feet of snow".... which is the photo on the right! Isn't that cute? I found this on the web .... we actually didn't have that much snow here, but some folks near Buffalo NY had it and we are only about 120 miles from there.
.
Yeah, winter is here, and summer went to Australia for the winter!
.
Do you remember my Spring Fling quilt that I started early in the summer this year? Well believe it or not, I'm back at finishing it as I
am now able to sit at the machine without
stresses on my hip.

.
Each day, I'm better and better with walking and doing things. It's always a new discovery each day as I'm getting stronger and stronger.
.
So Saturday, I ventured down to the basement to check out my poor ignored sewing area. Since coming home from the cottage it has been so neglected. I haven't put all things from the cottage
away even and had to search through
for my attachments.
.
So, I pressed and organized myself and managed to stipple down one side of the quilt only to find that I had turned under a section of the back. Of course I've not lost my skills in stitch picking, and which of us do, so I picked about 12" of the edge of the quilt.
.
I've decided that one side a day will suffice this girl. Not only that, this quilt is a queen so that's a bit of a stretch of sitting. So today, I shall try to do a bit more.
.
My sweetie put the lights on our blue spruce tree in the front yard and it looks spectactular! Old fashioned looking, all different colours, which remind us both of our childhoods.
.
I'm sitting her blogging and see on the tv a product called "twittens" which is gloves that are able to become fingerless gloves....just an adaption of what we've been doing for years. Hot off the presses in Canada...back ordered too! I make fingerless gloves for my grandkids all the time in funky colours.
.
Happy to blog on a snowy Monday...
