Oh, what a cutie!  Isn't it just the best watching the little ones grow up!

Nice to hear from you, Peg and Anna.  I have been making quilts for QOV and volunteered to cut kits for the Ottawa group.  And I like to make fairly easy throw size quilts.My great grandson, Kye, will be 1 on June 1.  Here he is visiting his grandma in Clearwater, B.C. on the long week-end.

Oh, Elizabeth, that is a lovely quilt.  I did a number of small quilts for charity over the winter, then got on with a number of small projects, all to use up scraps.  My scrap bin was close to empty.  Then I got going on some stash busters, which hardly seemed to make a dint.  Now just to make a kilt for our grandson (3 1/2) - yes kilt, not quilt, his dad competes in Scottish Heavy Events and I've kept him in a kilt since before he could walk.  Once that's done, then on to a special table topper that a friend designed.  Come to think of it, I haven't been taking pictures of all of this stuff, should get some then I could share with you all.  In the meantime, evenings have been spent on an embroidery project that will eventually become fall/Thanksgiving place-mats.  It's all kept me busy so I don't get bored.  Now summer and RV season is here, so sewing will slow down now.  Blessings!

Hi ladies,  Life has indeed been busy and with lots of changes in the last 18 months. We bought a new to us house in St. Albert after living in Edmonton for the past 35 years. Our new house is lovely and we are enjoying living in it. I am getting ready to retire after 40 years as a school teacher. It is exciting and scary and a whole lot of other feelings rolled into one.  I feel so fortunate to have been able to work in a job that I have loved for many years and now am looking forward to quilting more and getting some stuff finally sorted out at home. I have not quilted much the last 18 months though, I did make a few baby wraps and a couple of throw quilts. I also repaired a quilt for the first time so that was an interesting experience. Hope all is well with you and yours and that you are looking forward to a wonderful summer. With warmest wishes Anna

Hi Shannon,

Sorry to hear you are getting chemotherapy.  Glad that you are doing well.  Your daughter was a beautiful bride!  Congratulations on your son's graduation.  Too bad that you aren't quilting at present, but you can back to it whenever you feel like doing it again.  Don't get rid of a thing - the urge may suddenly come back. LOL

Oh, Shannon, what a beautiful bride she is.  Lots happening in your life apparently.  Sorry to hear about the chemo, hope it's doing its job for you. Crochet is perfect busy work, I have a project on the go too.

Hello!

This is my latest finish - my Caravans Quilt.  I free motion quilted it with filled paisleys and quilted animals in the light blocks.

Nice to hear from you Andrea.

My avatar is my great grandson, Kye.  His cousins took a picture of him with their phone and added an app. so he would look like Winnie the Pooh. Haha!

I haven't posted anything for a very long time   I am nearly finished the log cabin quilt I was doing back in the spring and have only bought one piece of material I bought a piece of Canadian fabric with the Inuschuk on it to include in this quilt for out west.  I don't get much done these days   I am waiting for a call to go to the arthritic clinic  Old age is really great but i should not complain many much worse off than me This fall weather is lovely so far and hope it stays for a bit   Take care all and Happy Quilting
