Rainy days make for stitching days….Design is finished now to completely finish it….not in a frame though, something new for me! Stay tuned!
….and this is the 3rd day in a row of cold, wet weather!
STITCH ANOTHER FROG because with the two previous days one frog got stitched!
MEND CLOTHES….finally….one done, three more to go!
LOOK LONGINGLY AT RUNNING EQUIPMENT (putting off long run until tomorrow because they are forecasting a balmy, snunny 17 degrees tomorrow, much better than the rainy, windy 13 today)
TAKE LESSONS FROM THE CAT….and just go back to bed or find my own rocking chair and stitch.
Or look at pictures of places where it is sunny, these are in Tadoussac. When this bad weather started on Friday, we set off to find sun and we found warm, sunny Tadoussac!
HOWEVER, it is “Stitched Sunday” with Helen from Hugs from Helen! Helen is from Australia and she is giving lessons on how to embroider. I am a good candidate because I have been admiring my many friends’ stitchery from Australia. So, I am going to put together my supplies and get ready for the lessons. I hope that some of you will play along! The link is on the side.
I am a real homebody and yesterday was my first day of vacation. I haven’t started sewing yet but here is what my sewing room looks like! 🙂
And of course I sit outside and watch my hummingbirds come and go:
Summer vacation starts for me today, however I really have no set plans to go anywhere. I will be mainly sticking around here and maybe off to Montreal to visit my son. A little bit of this and a little bit of that but hopefully A LOT of quilting and crafting!
Project #1: backing (finally found the right material), sandwich and starting the handquilting: quietwork!
Project #2: Clean out scraps by cutting them for a braid quilt.
has been going on? Well, just last week, on June 2nd, our guild held a Quilting exhibition at a well-known regional castle, called the Chateau Murdoch. It was the perfect setting to show off our quilts to the public. Members showed 265 pieces. Here are some the pictures, PART 1 because I will post more over the next week….so much eye candy! So much inspiration. I volunteered and really enjoyed myself. I was in Room 6 and the amount of people who came by with their jaws opened wide was amazing, so I got to share my love of quilting by answering all the questions.
I will post more. Don’t forget to click on the pictures because they will open larger and much more detailed.
I have been cleaning and organizing the blog and you may notice a the Quilting blog list, courtesy of Quilter’s Home magazine. They published 50 best quilting blogs 2011, so I am posting them too, so that I can further investigate. Here is the article: http://www.quiltershomemag.com/content_downloads/WEBposse.pdf
I don’t know where to start so I’ll start with a picture of a Needlework friend who came to Canada all the way from Malaysia! Sabariah came to Canada to see her son graduate from University and she took a tour of the maritimes and I got to meet up with her when she came through Quebec City.
Do go and visit her blog! She writes so well and the pictures of our Country make me proud to live here!
And something crafty. I have been doing Six-Word Memoirs with my students and I have a quilty project in progress. I asked Sabariah and her daughter to do their Six-Word Memoir. Her daughter was shy but did the lovely drawings on Sabariah’s pieces:
I PROMISE! I WILL BE BACK! I have lots of neat pictures of what has been going on over the last few months!
