Sun on the new fallen snow from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

 It was a beautiful morning to walk. The snow was heavy on the trees, and as I walked through the forest, it was silent! The snow deadened all the city sounds, and it was glorious!

As I was prepping to leave the house, I noticed the sun shining on the treetops, so I snapped a couple of pictures. I put my sunglasses on for the walk, only to find that it was a sliver of open sky that allowed the sun to peek through the clouds. It was a cloudy day, but that's OK. I had my rain boots ...

A happy day from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

 It was just a happy day yesterday in many ways. The weather was glorious - a short-sleeved T-shirt kind of day. Things got done that had been sitting for a while, and well - it was just a happy day!

A HUGE thanks to Maria, who found the panel that I was looking for. I must get that paid for today. I'll share the store with you tomorrow - after my purchase goes through!

Oh my - when I looked at my FitBit last night, it had been in overdrive all day. 14.99 km. How did that happen? I did go for ...

A lucky day! from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

 The good news - the pattern is written! Yikes - it's like three patterns in one! If you want to see what the quilt looks like, check out this link. I shouldn't lead you to that website until the pattern is absolutely read to go, but I will anyway. Months ago, I agreed to design a quilt for Quilts of Valour. I would make the quilt in Northcott's Oh Canada collection, and I would make a second quilt using one of Northcott's basics (I chose Dublin)

The quilts were to be unveiled at Quilt Canada. That didn't ...

Surrounded by love from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!


I'm making great progress on getting stuff done. Yeah - last week, I just felt like I was going backward all the time. This week is going much smoother. 

Three hours of Zoom yesterday and no drops. Can I dare say that the connection is stabilized? I'm knocking very hard on wood as I say that! 

I'm in the process of writing a pattern that is taking a bit longer than I had planned, but it's like writing THREE patterns in one. I've got all the paperwork laid out to finish that off. It's now ...

What I found on the internet from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

I did accomplish a lot, but not really anything that I can share with you. Gosh - the secrets still abound. The QUILTsocial blog posts will be up next week, and it's been a wee bit of a learning curve behind the scenes, but all is good.

I got about a third of my "to do" list for the week done! How cool is that? Even if it mostly meant dealing with events in my calendar and making a few phone calls. It doesn't matter - those things are done now, and I can move on to the next bunch ...

Another HAPPY day!!!! from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

H, OH!!!!!  I'm so EXCITED!!!!  Can you guess why? Sometime yesterday afternoon, the ban on short term rentals in Ontario was lifted! Oh, happy day!!!  That means that the next scheduled REAL quilting retreat can take place. We did have one planned for next week, but some of the people coming work during the day and they had to rearrange their vacations. I doubt their bosses would be too happy if we switched around again. Besides - we do NOT know any of the rules and restrictions that come with this development. I can easily wait three more weeks!

Needless ...

TOO MUCH excitement from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

Please forgive me but my brain is going a hundred miles a minute. I'm finding this self-isolation thing so stimulating. I know I'm probably the only one, but there's so much happening and so much to do and I've now got the time. I also have the time to dream up new things. This is BAD!!

I know that some people are struggling with the self-isolation thing and I know it's hard to be stuck in the house and can't go anywhere. I can only hope that has provided people with some time to ...

Sit n Sew Day from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

So if you have a totally productive day, but you don't work on what you had planned, is that still a productive day?

In the morning, I trimmed two quilts intending to get the bindings on them. I also have a couple of other quilts that need to be bound that I was hoping to deliver to Quilts of Valour today. And I wanted to make the backing for that Dresden Plate quilt.

NONE of that got done. There are no deadlines for any of that stuff, so I'm not worried.

But what did I do? Well - I ...

The lack of color from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

Have you ever noticed how our world is becoming devoid of color? Have you looked at the color of cars lately? I would say that a great percentage of cars are either black, grey, silver or white. Why is that?

I can tell you one reason - it's cheaper. A friend recently bought a new vehicle and if she wanted anything other than black, she had to pay extra. Imagine how much easier it is for the car dealers to find a car when they only need to find a black one. Last year when I bought my car, I ...

One more bites the dust from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

I didn't get nearly as much completed as I would have liked, but we had company for a good part of the day so it was all for a good reason!

I did manage to get that Redwork Embroidery UFO - DONE!!!  It's now sitting in the "to be quilted" pile and I'm thrilled to death about that. There remain three items on the 2017 list, five on the 2018 list, and nine still on the list for 2019. As I mentioned, I am being very optimistic and putting 12 new items on the list for 2020. I ...

Owen the Owl Show n Tell from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

Today, it's all about Owen the Owl. He's from the North Star quilt by Elizabeth Hartman. Just thinking that Quilt Market is coming up soon - I wonder what new quilt she'll have this year? However, there comes a time when you say enough is enough! I have quite a few of her patterns and I've made a few. For me - it's time to move on (OK - so there are a few more that I want to make but there'll be no more acquiring patterns from Elizabeth. Not that I don't like her stuff ...
