"Sew" Busy...

Good Evening Internet Friends!

I have been "sew" busy over the past few days/weeks that I have not had time to post.

Yesterday I took myself on a bit of a road trip and one of the things I picked up was some fabric for a project I have been thinking about making for at least a couple of years now...

This is part of the project and hopefully I will have "sew" much more to show you tomorrow.

I decided to use this fabric after seeing it at Quincy's Quilting yesterday when I stopped by to pick up their version of the Row by Row 2018.  

Fingers crossed my vision works out...🤞

Hope this inspires your own creativity...

Let's Purge...

Good Evening Internet Friends!

Got up to a nice rainy day with great plans to purge as much of my house as possible.

But.....first I stopped in my craft room.  I have some really cool in there.  "Sew" I got distracted and cut the rest of my 2.5" squares and finished this table topper:

While I was there I found a banana bread recipe that I thought I should I did:

So then it was snack time....

A friend of my posted last night about rhubarb rolls and since I have not had those in years I decided to use up the last of my fresh rhubarb and make these:

Snack time AGAIN!!!  No wonder I don't lose weight or get anything done....

However, by this evening I had managed to clean and purge the bathroom downstairs; half a garbage bag, full blue bag and a partial box to be donated.

Hope this inspires your own creativity...

Still Waiting...

Good Evening Internet Friends!

Since yesterday mid afternoon we have been warned about a very bad storm that will be in the area.  All day it looked like it might rain but so far in my hood there has been NOTHING.  A bit of wind at times and that is all.

Still feeling a bit weak after my asthma attack yesterday.  

"Sew" for today in addition to going to the St Albert Farmers' Market I did some sock knitting and made another two of the Flying Geese Blocks for my Flowers for My Wedding Ring quilt:

Feeling exhausted again, so think it is time to tuck into bed and maybe take my knitting with me.

Hope this inspires your own creativity...

"Sew" It Goes...

Good Evening Internet Friends!

I have been struggling with the ability to breathe for the past few weeks due to all the pollen in the air.  Today was going to be my last day of work for the week and then I was to be set to have the first weekend off in I do not know how long!  


Oh, but wait.......thanks to some unplanned for smoking in my immediate presence.....that all came crashing down literally.  By 1300 and literally a million doses of puffers I came home exhausted.  Airways open finally, but completely exhausted.  A very long nap this afternoon in my climate controlled bubble house and still feeling tired.

For dinner I wanted French Onion Soup - but did not want to chew through a whole piece of bread so I cut my toast up:
Delicious and salty just what I was looking for.

Later this evening I ventured down to my craft room.  I was fortunate enough to be able to find a bit of the blue Tabby Road fabric at Quiltessential Co in St Albert.  Not enough to make my Grammy another quilt to replace the one that has gone astray, but enough to make a Knitting Project Bag.

I wanted a bigger size that would carry more than one skein for my colour work projects so after doing some measuring I came up with this:

No, I will not be writing this one up as a pattern.  Too much time and effort on my part, and it takes the fun out of my creativity ☺♫.  If you want to come over and sew I can show you how ☺

Hope this inspires your own creativity...

Half Way...

Good Afternoon Internet Friends!

I shall post earlier than I usually do today.  

Today is the half way point in what I am referring to my double double shifts!  Somehow I have agreed to work 7 days straight, double shifts in this, and of course overtime!  Not sure how I did this but have reached the half way point.  😼

I have also reached the half way point with my Flying Geese Blocks for my Flowers for My Wedding Ring Quilt:


I am in awe of how awesome these blocks are turning out.  This quilt is going to be AMAZING!!!!

Hope this inspires your own creativity...

Knitting Along...

Good Evening Internet Friends!

Earlier this winter I had a bit of a crafting burn out.  After two years of sewing to help someone out and no end in sight I just gave up.  DONE.  

"Sew" many of my own projects were put on hiatus, and my hobbies were no longer enjoyable.  I am now starting to get back into enjoying my hobbies.

One of the projects I really wanted to start on was my Sock Crush Subscription box.  As you likely know I love my Quebec yarns, and this sock blank by Studio de Laine Cactus Yarn Studio was in the box!!!  I was SO excited to see it.

Here is my slow progress on this sock:

Keepin' it Between the Rhubarb...

Good Evening Internet Friends!

Stopped by my amazing friend Lynn's on Saturday evening and was gifted a huge bag of fresh rhubarb!  This evening was the first time though that I have been able to get to it.

I asked my son what he wanted first and the response was "CAKE", so I made our favourite Rhubarb Cake:

Quite proud of myself with this one as well.  Dinner required oven time so I mixed up the cake and put in the oven alongside dinner.  While everything was cooking dog and I headed out for our evening walk.  Leaving home there was a very light mist to the air but by the time we made 7.06 mi home we were both DRENCHED!!☔🐕  

Warm cake fresh from the oven helped with that.

Hope this inspires your own creativity...🙨
