Good Late Evening Internet Friends!
I was up by 0730 this morning to get my son out to his Boy Scouts event. Originally this was supposed to be a Friday to Sunday camp out in the bush however, due to the weather (rain and cold) it was cancelled. The group my son is part of though was gifted a piece of rural bush land with some out buildings on the property and as such it was decided that they would do a overnight camp out there as at least there are structures and wood burning stoves.
So we packed him up and headed off. It was a very pretty drive but the rain was heavy.
Upon arrival and mudding in with the Go Go Go Toyota parents were informed that the trip was only going to be a day trip due to weather.
Since I did not want to drive home an hour and then come back an hour I decided that I would go for a drive and check out some of the small towns and quilt shops. In total today I made 190 miles (306 kilometers).
The drive was beautiful:
I stopped at a couple of quilt shops and picked up WAY too many items one of which was:
It's Matryoshka Doll fabric by Elizabeth's Studio. It made me happy cause it made me think of my Grammy. I got some to make her a mug rug, but now am thinking it would make a really nice place mat for her Broda Chair.
On the way home kiddo and I opted to drive the newly opened section of the Anthony Henday Drive that had been open for an hour and a half:
No pot holes or accidents, but there were already the usual Edmonton drivers out cutting motorists off, speeding and tailgating. Just another day here I guess. ☺
This evening after dinner I made of the blocks for my Scandi 3 quilt:
Now I should probably get ready for bed as tomorrow is a day of housework, and get ready for the work and school week.
Hope this inspires your own creativity...
