This blog will be a journey through my quiltwork and some artwork and my life...sometimes the muse' is not active but I'll try I was a gourd artist until my hands gave out, now I thoroughly enjoy playing with fabric and paint. Enjoy most everything that nature has to offer.
Family and friends are very important. I live in the beautiful Peace River Area of northeastern BC.
Finally got to use some of the greens in Grand Illusion, Bonnie Hunter's new mystery quilt, Clue #3 is finished, eagerly awaiting clue #4.
Here are the two by fours for clue#3.
Here are all the clues to date, sorry for the shadow.
Talkin' Turkey is coming along. I don't have all the units made, but just had to do enough to try out a couple of blocks. Bonnie's is all red, I decided to do mine scrappy. This quilt is from her book String Fling. I think it will be quite lovely done scrappy. Love to bust some stash using her patterns.
And in the evenings, a bit of knitting. I find knitting so relaxing at the end of a long busy day. this is a sock, should be nice with 4x4 ribbing all the way to the heel .
On the design wall Missouri Quilting Disappearing Hour Glass. I have had this bundle of Kaffe Fassette Fat quarters for so long, love his fabrics. I think they worked perfectly in this top. Must get this one sewed together soon.
My granddaughter helped me get the tree up and decorated and the house spiffed up a bit. We also took a morning and baked cookies. Love the smell of cookies baking, especially ginger cookies. I hope you have had a happy busy week too .
