Hello everybody! I thought it was time to log the completed projects from 2022. My goal was to finish some projects, and stop accumulating half finished quilt tops. Rainbow purse. The only Bag of the Month pattern I made in 2022, pleased at how it turned out despite the fact it’s not really the type […]


Sitting here on the second day of the month, I think it appropriate to think about some of my current projects and where I should prioritize for the month.  Busyness of course with some of my volunteer activities will impact my crafting time. -Sandwich and quilt Fish School baby quilt. -Sandwich and quilt Christmas on […]

This story starts back in February. Should we order meat chickens this year? What about layer hens? One of ours is not doing so well. What about hybrid chickens? I joined a local FB group for backyard chickens and saw someone had day olds available. Sweet. All different colour eggs too! Back and forth a […]

Welcome to TGIFF for July 22! How are you all doing this fine (muggy and hot) July day! Ready to talk about cooler weather, when a nice quilt is needed to snuggle in front of a fire, cup of hot chocolate (with marshmallows of course) in hand? You know I love a good quilt along, […]

Better late than never, isn’t that what we always say as quilters? Lorna from Sew Fresh Quilts did a free quilt-along a few years back for these cute Christmas/holiday/winter-themed blocks. I picked a scheme I called “vintage Christmas”, recalling sweet cards and ornaments which my mom had treasured for many years. The gold, pink, blue, […]

I’m enjoying a few minutes of quiet today with my coffee and stitching down the binding on these placemats. The backstory is that I purchased a partially finished set of rows of vintage broken dishes blocks from Etsy several years ago. I was disappointed to see the amount of staining on the fabrics, so I […]

My sea and sand (well, actually lake and sand) quilt is finished. A friend of mine recently bought a house, so this will be packaged up and sent off as a house warming gift. Pattern is Frolic by Bonnie Hunter. Photo taken at the beach in Cobourg, Ontario, in 2019 (north shore of Lake Ontario). […]

Yes, I’m in again.  Sandra from mmmquilts put out the call for a Postcard from Sweden quilt along.  I dug through my  computer files to confirm I had a copy of the pattern, and got started.  I don’t know why I started at the bottom–I have these 6 rows down and the rest of the […]

Like many of you, I am a huge fan of Bonnie Hunter and her mystery quilts. Every December, she posts steps to make something awesome. However, since I am not usually a fan of her colours, I like to change them up. This year the photos of rhododendron she shared (which is not hardy in […]
