Good Evening Internet Friends!

I am on some kind of a Canadiana theme this week!  

Earlier in the week I made a pillowcase, yesterday the table runner and today I decided to make a quick Knitting Pouch with the scraps from the pillowcase kit!  

Love how this turned out.  Now I have to find me some kind of a knitting project to go along with this Knitting Pouch!  😸

Hope this inspires your own creativity...

Table Runner!!!

Good Late Evening Internet Friends!

This evening I worked on piecing a Table Runner that I just HAD to have because I LOVE the colours.  You likely know that I love these colours:


This is the Canadiana Table Runner Kit that I got at 4Paws Quilting & Knitting the other day.  

The finished size will be 16 x 55" and I love that I stretches across most of my table.  😺

Hope this insprires your own creativity...

Sew Bee It!!

Good Evening Internet Friends!

Today my friend and neighbour Sharon of 4Paws Quiltng & Knitting came over for lunch and a Sewing Day.  😀

I made macaroni and cheese for lunch but forgot to take a picture before it was dug into.  I also baked a rhubarb streusel pie.  It was delicious!!!😋

This afternoon in addition to making some really awesome plans for 4Paws Quilting & Knitting, one of which involves one of my very, very, very, most favourite crafting company that I made connections with with in Quebec.

While Sharon worked on a shop sample with the fabric below I made a pillow case to coordinate with the quilt she is making and sewed some more of the 320 squares that are to becomes half square triangles soon: 

The Pillowcase that I made this afternoon.  I love the Canadiana theme that is this fabric.  🍁

Comfort Day

Good Evening Internet Friends.

Awoke today to an overcast and smoky sky.  There are forest fires burning in British Columbia at present.  I went out briefly this morning but my asthma did not like the air quality so I returned to my house/bubble with all it's air quality instruments etc.

This afternoon I did some knitting on my June box of Super Amazing Awesome Fingering Yarn Club that I get through 4Paws Quilting & Knitting (literally my neighbourhood quilt and yarn store). 😊😁

I started these socks while in Quebec on Summer Vacation and of course since getting home and going back to work have not done a lot of work on them.  Today I was able to get the heel flap and heel done.  😺

For dinner I made fresh Tomato Dill Soup and we had the Green Onion cakes along with.  Super awesome:

This was of course comfort food to add to the perfect comfort day.

Off to Market

Good Evening Internet Friends!

Today my son and I headed off to the St Albert Farmers' Market.  There was lots of wonderful products and after stopping by the library as well we picked up some vegetables and two bags of green onion cakes.  Yum.

We did not eat any of this bounty this evening as we went out for dinner with the neighbours for my son's 13th Birthday 🎂  

After dinner we ventured over to Rundle Park to check out the goats they have grazing the river valley this year.

Not a goat person, but I have to admit they are kind of cute, but they can stay in the park.  

Hope this inspires your own creativity...

Where am I???

Good Very Late Evening Internet Friends!

First off I know that I am home and that I think I am over jet lag and holiday fun and exhaustion at the same time.  Back to work this week for four days and as of this evening I am back on vacation for another 12 days.  As of yet, I have no real plans for this vacation time.  Might go to Farmer's Market tomorrow 😊

Have done a bit of knitting this week in between important things like getting to and from work, kid to his events, and baking bread the other evening because my son does not like the taste of store bought bread:  🍞

This evening I sorted through some more of the scraps in my craft room and made:

Another Flock of Geese Block for the 52 Week Block Challenge.  Not sure what week I am supposed to be on, but this is MY current block and I feel accomplished that at least another one is made. 😲

Hope this inspires your own creativity...

What's the Buzz???

Good Evening Internet Friends!

We arrived back home very late Saturday or very early Sunday morning dependent on time zone that we still seem to be adjusting to and also due to a delay with departure of the plane from Ottawa.

Back to work now for two days and at home starting to get organized and some sense of normal restored.

This evening on my way home I stopped at 4Paws Quilting & Knitting to pick up a couple of necessary items.  Got the "necessary" items but also found the new kits that Sharon has put together for her 4Paws Knitting Pouches.  These pouches have a different colour base from the main part of the bag 😊.  

Of course I had to get one of these.  I decided on a colour way that would coordinate with my next knitting project that I hope to start soon with a pattern that I picked up while in Quebec:


Now off to check on the bread I decided to bake this evening as I was too tired to stop at the market on the way home this evening.  

Hope this inspires your own creativity...

Happy Canada Day!

Good Evening Internet Friends from a very wet Ottawa and Canada 150.

Yesterday on the flight and between naps I finished my Canada 150 Special Dye exclusive colourway for 4Paws Quilting & Knitting.

These socks are a necessity in the rain today as it is not even a warm is a cold rain.

This afternoon we spent some time inside at the Canadian Museum of History.  Not only do I love the exhibits in there, but it was dry.   One of my favourite things to see there are the totem poles:

Now to try and dry out for the fireworks this evening!  Happy Canada Day everyone and
