Dear Vi, While my friends on the west coast are enjoying a bit of a cool and rainy summer, here in Dawson City, Yukon things have been quite delightful. Well, for the most part, anyway.We did go through a couple … Continue reading

Has Summer Arrived? from Humble Quilts

No, summer hasn't arrived yet, but temps in the 80's and 90's feel otherwise!! I'll look forward to Summer Solstice on June 22. 


I've been arranging a few quilts around the house, removing some for my lectures and putting others up. 

I'm not sure how much I like this, but it is staying for now. 


 Bring on summer!! This was a little round robin I love to pieces!!

Cory had a rare Saturday off and we opted to go for a drive and revisit some areas we haven't been to for some time ...

Marvelous Monday from Humble Quilts

I got a bit of sewing done over the weekend but it is my string quilt and won't share that until next week. 
I started to gather my quilts for next month's lecture. I would like to bring my newer quilts so will be changing up the lecture.  I thought while I was going through quilts I'd hang a few ones too. 


This springy/summery quilt was designed by Cheri Payne. 

We have this old tv stand that I use to store some quilts in. Once when my son's friend came home with him from college ...

$5 Friday: Camper E2E from Wasatch Quilting

We have enjoyed camping together as a family for as long as I can remember. When I was a child we would always “rough” it. As in, no fancy RV, just a regular old tent and sleeping bags! Since I have been married this all changed! My husband has been in the Recreational Vehicle industry for over 20 years, and is always able to take a trailer or Motor home to use. My kids have absolutely loved it! We’re getting ready to head out again, and summer camping brought me to this weeks deal! I have so many outdoor ...

Pool Removal from Becca's Crazy Projects

When we bought this house we knew the pool would have to be removed. This is the year we finally got the job done. The cover was getting pretty rough and we couldn't put it off any longer.
We uncovered the pool to see how bad it really was.
There was quite a bit of damaged tile. More than a few frogs, too. I caught three frogs during the draining process. I was going to remove them to an area behind the neighborhood with a slow moving creek. Two of those three frogs decided to make their own way ...

Spring has Arrived from Becca's Crazy Projects

I haven't been up to much this past week.

I did win the block lottery during the last guild meeting. I shared my blocks last month. Now I just need to decide what to do with them all. Check out the free tutorial by Samelia's Mum to make your own applique tulips.
I think spring has finally arrived in Virginia. The daffodils are in full bloom.
The deer are out and about.
The squirrels are still chasing each other about. 
Even the trees are in bloom. I took these photos on my afternoon walks this week. I can ...

A walk on a sunny October day from Nita Dances

Dear Vi,

It was so pretty this afternoon, I just had to take Sam out for a walk. Actually, it was Sam who took me.

I was happily basting a quilt, head down, paying no attention at all to leaves blowing over the lawn, sunshine streaming through the windows and bouncing rainbows around the room.

Sam waiting not so patiently by the door

But Sam grumbled and barked and grumbled and barked until I finally gave in.

We walked through the forest, down a country road, past a horse in the field and a wild apple tree whose branches were ...

Nature Post from Becca's Crazy Projects

Back to work this week meant I was super busy all week and didn't get much chance to do crafty things. You'll have to be satisfied with some photos collected over the week.

There was my friend the buck. He rarely moves off when I walk by.
This pretty flower. I have no idea where I came across it.
This one, along my side yard on a tree that should be removed before it takes down part of my fence.
 Another encounter with that buck. I'm not kidding, he barely looks up when I'm less than ...
