memory quilt ....

I don't very often share pix of quilts because I don't make them any more - just mini quilts or the occasional baby quilt.... although I still like trying out different quilt blocks.  When I was going through some older photos (as you'll see by the date) looking for something in particular I came across this memory quilt - well, sort of a memory quilt - maybe in memory of my fella's working days.  ^^ I made this from some of his old plaid shirts and there were enough to make a quilt to fit a queen bed for our cabin in the woods in British Columbia.    So I figured why not show you the quilt and voilà!  It now resides at our cabin in Manitoba.
By the way, do you see that lamp on the right - it's marble and belonged to my paternal grandmother - it's old - older than I - I still have it - it's a cherished memory of her.



start each day with a grateful heart

a gift

This past week flew by - we celebrated Canada's 150th, had visitors from the West Coast, picked up the key to our new place and moved a few things in! 

 This candlemat and card were made for a gift - I hated to part with the candlemat .... isn't that shameful.





This photo was taken in May - they had 4 goslings but only one wanted it's photo taken - the others were tucked up under mom's wings .....






remember that sometimes not getting what you want
is a wonderful stroke of luck
