HAPPY SPRING!

Good morning friends. Well it is finally here, the first day of Spring and the weather here is supposed to be gorgeous today. I'm planning on doing some raking up around my shop and picking up some sticks and branches after the windy week we have had. Lots of things to do before opening up my shop this year. I also plan on doing some dyeing of wool this weekend  for the shop and also I have to do some  quilting, customer quilts are stacked up waiting. Winter has gone and hopefully the virus will soon be gone. Have a great weekend everyone and Happy First Day of Spring!

A FINISH

Just took this beauty off the frame last night. Love how it quilted up. Took me 4 days to get it all quilted. Lots of stitching in the ditch and stitching around the wool applique'. 
It looks like spring is on the way, the birds are singing this morning. I wish everyone a great weekend.

THE RED GENERAL

I just finished quilting this gorgeous red and cream quilt for a customer. It is made with the French General fabric line. I call it the Red General. I just love the way it quilted up! I took some pictures of it today before I call the customer to tell her it is ready for pickup. I just love the way the sunlight picks up the quilting texture.

A BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION

Today we celebrated my husband's birthday. I made a nice roast beef dinner with roasted onions and heirloom carrots, mashed potatoes, steamed green beans,  homemade gravy and coleslaw. Finished it off with a piece of cake.
He really enjoyed it.

WOOL APPLIQUE' QUILT

Happy Friday!! I quilted this gorgeous quilt last week for a local Quilt Shop, The Cotton Harvest in Seaforth, ON. I just love this quilt. I purchased the pattern so I am definitely going to make one for myself. I plan on hanging it on the wall in my upstairs stairwell. She has kits for sale too.
Hope you all have a great weekend.

PANCAKE TUESDAY

Pancake Tuesday here in Canada so I made my scratch recipe for pancakes and we had sausages with them. They were absolutely delicious with butter and real maple syrup.

RED NINE PATCH QUILT

I just finished binding this scrappy red, cream and tan quilt about 5 am this morning. I made the top last year and I snuck it in to be quilted last week between customer quilts. I love how it turned out. Red is my all time favourite colour. This quilt is for me :) So glad it is finally finished!!

A CHRISTMAS QUILT

I just finished quilting this gorgeous Christmas Quilt. It is a customer's quilt and she didn't need it until after Christmas. So she will be able to enjoy it next Christmas. I love it so much that I think I will make one for our bed. I am posting some pictures of this beauty. I quilted it with lots of texture.

Blessings to all of my followers.

A CHRISTMAS QUILT

Happy Monday morning friends! A chilly morning here in Ontario, with a little bit of snow overnight. I just finished binding this Quilt for Christmas. Yes, I took time out to make something for myself.
I still have some customer quilts to quilt before Christmas, but hopefully I will have them finished up this week so they will have time to bind them.
Have a great day everyone!

QUILTING, QUILTING, AND MORE QUILTING

Such a busy time of year. I've been quilting like crazy and finally get a little caught up until next week when I have more coming in. I even pulled an all nighter getting a quilt finished that someone ordered. I just finished up this big blue beautiful quilt. It was so much fun to quilt.
I hope all of my American friends had a great Thanksgiving. We are enjoying a mild sunny day here in Ontario. 
Have a great day everyone.
