Embroidered Journals, Quilty 365, Tiny Tree Trains, Aging Thoughts from Canadian Needle Nana


The Snow has arrived!

 Here is my Tuesday deep thought...
Now in my seventies (you have no idea how weird it is to write that), I realize my face is changing. My nose appears larger probably because my cheeks are sinking. My teeth look and feel bigger while my hair is thinning. It goes without saying but I'll say it anyway, how grateful I am to be here and still have my wits about me to be able to even note these changes. I also thank goodness I've never been overly vain, just the normal amount of vanity ...

Three Free Patterns, Sewing Tiny Trees and Poppies, Recipes Too from Canadian Needle Nana


Our laneway in view there and one of several mother trees on the property. To the right-the overgrown area was a rock garden originally. A few plants flower there from time to time and I would love to revive it.
I mentioned I tried growing herbs in a planter this summer. This is one of the culprits caught red handed or red pawed in this case. Look at him happily munching that plant. I recognize him as a "regular" because of the notch in his ear. 
Recently I made us one of those breakfast for supper meals. I used Turkey ...

2 In Between Quilt Projects, Raisin Oat Cookies, Tulips For Planting Time from Canadian Needle Nana

Emily's Quotes- Pinterest

I've just put another pan of raisin oat cookies in the oven. The smell is fragrant.  Make no wonder cinnamon is so prized among spices; it makes anything baking smell so delicious.  
Outside we have had rotating bouts of snowflakes, hail, rain and yes even sunshine all these recent days. There was snow on the ground when I got up Sunday morning...I suspected because the light behind the blind seemed whiter. That bit didn't last at all.  Today we have a promise of 12 C. 

Getting back to the cookies, I used partial ...

Santa Quilting, Vintage Blocks, Tiny Trees, Jewel Box Blocks, Hope For Better from Canadian Needle Nana

 I was a little concerned about our 95 year old Queen there for a couple of weeks. I was relieved to see her back on duty greeting this fellow, Thomas Trotter, and presenting him with the Queen's Medal for Music on December 8th.

I was a Girl Guide for a number of years and took my weekly pledge to do my duty to God, the Queen and my country very seriously.  This Elizabeth has been my queen all my life. She has never put a foot wrong and I feel very sentimental about her, foolish I know. And the ...

Quilt Bible Blocks, Snowmen Table Runner, 3 Free Seasonal Patterns, Neddy's Growing! from Canadian Needle Nana

 I tumbled down a rabbit hole this week I can tell you!! On a whim I decided to get out my scrappy Quilt Bible blocks and see what they looked like all together. The floor was the only space free to lay them out.  I'd already made the decision to use a light blue fabric for the sashing as Rosemary had used in her book. I figured she's the expert and actually I think it is working okay. 

 I'd thought of black but didn't have enough on hand and white is over used by me. I ...

What I Did on The Weekend, Tiny Trees Dilemma, Free Patterns from Canadian Needle Nana

 Just now on our walk, the barred owl flew over our heads low enough I could hear the sound of its wings flapping. Ned chased it, not very far as he doesn't stray from me. I realized I give this a significance, like it means something to see it and I wondered why. I realized I tend to think of all the critters and birds I spy as here for me, their audience somehow. A foolish notion but if that be so, I guarantee I am an appreciative one.

 Always a surprise when I see these very late blooming ...

Twelve Days of Christmas from Nestlings By Robin

 I have had this Christmas line 
for a few years now...
The selvages are adorable
and the colors vibrant 
and wonderful!
When quarantine started, I finished 
a couple of work deadlines and then
promised myself that I would do a
project or 2 for myself.
A friend of mine had done a 
a sew along that this fabric
was perfect for!
Suzn Quilts designed an adorable
miniature using her tiny templates.
 The finished size is 12" and since
I have so much of this fabric, I
thought it would be fun to keep 
making bigger ...
