QUILT SHOP

Good evening peeps. Thought you'd like to have look at the site I just designed for a wonderful Quilt/Gift shop not too far from me. 
I love how it turned out. It is one of my favourite shops.
Hope you all had a great long weekend.

HORSES

My horses are just loving this nice weather. They have been out grazing every day from sun up to sun down. Seeing they are old horses, their winter hair is hanging on, but hopefully it will come out soon. Lots of elbow grease for sure.
Hope you are enjoying this nice weather that is finally here.

HANDWORK SEWING GROUP

I have been thinking about starting up a small group for handwork sewing, stitching, hooking, quilting or whatever you do that doesn't require electricity because it is going to be back at my cabin. It is such a nice place to sit and sew. Maybe one day a month? There is a wood stove in there for the cool fall days. Bring your lunch, but we can have the odd barbecue too. It is a small jaunt about a 5-7 minute walk from my house back there, but you wouldn't be carrying sewing machines...........Just something I am thinking about. It would be fun.

BREAKFAST AT THE SUGAR SHACK

Thursday morning some of my friends and I had wonderful breakfast at a local Maple Sugar Shack.
We met there first thing in the morning and we were their first customers of the day. What a way to spend some friends time together and to start the day. It was delicious. The maple syrup season is ending this weekend, so I am glad we managed to squeeze in a visit. I took some pictures, so I hope you enjoy them.

PRIMITIVE SHOW

I had a wonderful time this weekend at the primitive show in Holly, Michigan.
Spring Plantings is the name of the show and it is filled with wonderful antiques. The Vendors spend so much time searching out and bringing them to the show for us. Here is a picture of my friend Earlene, from Michigan and I. Earlene is such a sweet friend.

FINALLY

Well I think Spring is just about here. I finally saw a Robin today. Pretty soon we will be raking up after the long winter and cutting the grass. I'll be able to get busy working on my new shop.  I worked on it up to Christmas and then we just got too much snow. I am thankful that my water didn't freeze in the barn this winter. Last winter I was carrying buckets from the house to the barn from January until May.
Hoping you all have a wonderful day!

A VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY

Good morning! Today is a very special day, it is Kit's birthday today and she is turning 6. I adopted her 3 years ago yesterday. She is looking a little "chubby" right now because there is so much snow on our farm, so we haven't been getting our daily walks in. I took a couple of pictures of her yesterday to post for her special day. I just love her so much.
Happy Birthday Kit!

READY FOR VALENTINE'S DAY!

Happy Sunday folks! I just thought I would share a tablerunner I just finished for Valentine's day.
I made 2 last year and sold one and gave another away in a Blog Swap, so this one is mine!
I love how it turned out. I designed the pattern too.

CHRISTMAS

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! We had a wonderful time but ate way too much. Wish we had a little snow.
Phone calls from loved ones made the day. Would have loved to hear from our niece and nephew, but I guess they were busy.
Anyway I hope everyone has a great week and are thinking about their New Year's resolutions.
Blessings ~ Janet
