4 Favourite Things in One Picture, Autumn Pinks, Turkey Soup from Canadian Needle Nana

 This is Thursday, a lovely day to look back at the week and contemplate the weekend ahead. Thursday was my second favourite weekday...Friday being #1 singling the work week ending. I used to say 4 pm on Friday was my all time favourite moment in a week.

Here is Neddy enjoying one of many walks down the deciduous tree lined path at the back of the property. This borders acres of undeveloped land so there are many trails to enjoy. Overnight it seems to have become leaf lined; lately the leaves are falling like snow.

I happened to step ...

Blogtober; two for one 13 &14 from Rose Prairie Quilts and Farm


I apologize for not writing yesterday but absolutely nothing of interest happened yesterday. I had physical therapy in the morning and then went to Costco after that in the afternoon. Came home, took a nap, cook dinner and went to bed early. That was pretty much my day yesterday so I didn’t feel like writing about that. But today was a whole different day.

Early this morning I had an appointment with another type a therapist that was going to check my right leg. I have been having some swelling in my whole leg. The physical therapist I've ...

Peek-a-Boo Pumpkin Quilt from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

There once was a mischievous fellow named Stingy Jack, or so says the old Irish myth. 

The Devil – who had been tricked by Jack one too many times – didn’t want him, and heaven wouldn’t take him. So when he died, Jack was consigned to roam the earth forever with a lantern carved out of a turnip. Over time, he became known as Jack of the Lantern or, Jack O’Lantern. 

For hundreds of years, Irish folk carved spooky faces on turnips and potatoes to repel the ghost of Stingy Jack. Later, when Irish immigrants arrived in America, they ...

Halloween Finish, Christmas Quilt Along, Ugly Quilt, Cross Stitching, Hazel's Summer Embroidered Wildflowers from Canadian Needle Nana

After the horrid humidity that hung around so much of this  summer, I think I will say Autumn is now my favourite season. The air is clear and the garden has not completely died off, so a few flower bearing plants to still eye.  With the recent rains, all sorts of interesting mushrooms have sprung up. And of course, seeing up close all the changes to the trees, leaves and blooming shrubs is enjoyable as well. 

My groom is starting to take shape. I hope to finish him this week. I heard from  Gitta's that the Autumn Quakers threads ...

Happy October Everyone from Rose Prairie Quilts and Farm

 This is my favorite time of year and month.

This is Lover boy

I've been needing to write and give an update on myself and what's been going on.

Life is good right now. I had my 6 month scan after chemo and it was cancer free. It was stressful time not knowing what the scan would show and this will not be the last scan. I feel like I should maybe find someone I can talk to on how to be able to deal with this. It's my new normal and there has to be a ...

sewing Saturday.... peach wine and ghosties from Not Afraid of Color


to start this week, I finished the Bats and Boos quilt (pattern fatquartershop) complete with binding, sleeve and label. It's on the wall now. Earliest I've ever finished a halloween quilt! 

Along with quilting straight lines to stabilize the quilt, the free motion quilting was leaves, vines and spirals

then some ghost buttons were added for fun texture

can you find 6 of them?

the backing was older holiday fabric, another to make a sleeve, and as it finishes at 40 1/4" square, was just a bit too large for my backing fabric

I pulled the back ...

Rule #7, Embroidered Primitive Mini Quilt, Links, Shopping from Canadian Needle Nana

 Rule #7 All life on earth is vulnerable. Money, intellect, education or prestige don't protect against all the ills that can befall us. So there is nothing that has happened to me or will happen to me where I can say those two little words, why me.  While I didn't say that out loud when I lost everything in the fire, a part of me inside felt let down by the universe.

 I'd been through enough by then with my various losses to know I wasn't special enough to be given a free pass from bad ...

Sunday Chat from From My Carolina Home

It is the last Sunday of the month, and Autumn arrived this week with beautifully cool days. The garden is winding down, but I am still harvesting a lot of tomatoes! This was a couple of days worth, with lots of little cherry tomatoes and another Cherokee purple.

The hydrangea is covered in dark pink/green blooms as is usual for it in the fall. Here and there are lighter color ones, but most are the darker ones.

I have one beautiful lavendar one that has been blooming for over a week now. It is a lovely pure lavendar color ...
