Went To The Movies Today from Quilting My Way

 Sometimes I think this is more a diary then it is of my crafts. Then again, I don't put too much personnel information on here. Guess that's not a diary after all. 

This morning I was tired. I woke around 6 am coughing. I decided to go on the couch just so I wouldn't wake Patrick. I guess I really was tired because Patrick told me I slept till 10 am. I thought it was 9, but he said, "nope, 10 am." No wonder my morning disappeared so fast!

I worked on more letters for BE. Then ...

Comforts and Small Joys to Pass a Canadian Winter in Isolation from Canadian Needle Nana

We had a wolf moon last week- the first full moon of a new year. Early morning stepping onto the front veranda for wood I was surprised by how it looked so brilliant and illuminated the landscape.  This photo taken around 7:30 am. and look at those colours...cobalt? purples?  What colour(s) do you see|?

I am toting a lot of wood these days, part of the routine here in winter.  I'm pleased my joints aren't creaking though I think my arms may be an inch or two longer by the end of the winter. Never ...

Packing Up from Romany Quilting

Gemma let her feelings known, Christmas is over and it’s time to pack it all away, she thinks.  Why else would she be taking a swipe at Santa and knock him over?  She does look a little guilty, doesn’t she?

P1010489

Poor Santa

So the last day or two I’ve been packing the Christmas  things away, and putting the normal things back in place.  The brass needed a bit of attention, so I sat outside on the patio, rubber gloves on, cleaner and cloths to the ready, and started a little polishing.  These jugs usually reside on the ...

Inspiration, Indoor Gardening and Outside Chores, Fans Quilt, Free Patterns, from Canadian Needle Nana

We've been blessed for a week now with unseasonably warm temperatures. Just wonderful for walking outside and doing more chores like gathering kindling and window washing. Here is a look into one half of my indoor garden. I use the 3 step ladder for the washing- too bad if the window is higher than that! I just can't risk going any higher these days. You can see my kitchen window in the background and just beside the top of my shoulder is my camera with the good zoom pretty much set up there permanently.

While out there, I ...

Back to normal? from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

 

Yesterday was a bizarre day. At the end of the day, I didn't feel like I had accomplished much. Why? Well, for starters, I did a couple of NORMAL things, and they both consumed a LOT of time. How quickly we forget how time-consuming errands can be!

I got my hair cut! And can you believe that I messed up the time? Got the right time (almost), but on the wrong date! Fortunately, Paula wasn't very busy, so she could accommodate me into her schedule. Seriously??  I had to laugh about it as I didn't even have ...

FINALLY - A Movie!! from Quilting My Way

 I'm loosing it! I was sleeping till 10:30 am this morning!! I couldn't believe it. Reminded me of being in HS when I slept on weekends till noon or 1 pm. Funny how my parents didn't seem to mind till 1 pm. 

I got started on roasting garlic for garlic bread. I didn't have a lot of time to do that. So, about 30 mins before leaving for the theater I was getting the bread ready to rise. 

We headed out the door and went to the movie, "War With Grandpa." Loved it!! I laughed ...

Where Did The Week Go? from From the Strawberry Patch...

We had loads of fun at our granddaughter's outdoor, socially-distanced birthday party last Saturday. She and her friends decoupaged paper mache pumpkins, ate treats and tie-dyed T-shirts! I can't believe that's already been almost a week ago. Time has FLOWN by this week! So, where did the rest of this past week go?This pretty much sums up the week. I'm doing ruler work on a Metro Rings quilt.

With Retirement - Every Day Seems Like Saturday from Quilting My Way

This morning Patrick went to the couch around 4 am. He just couldn't get comfortable. I got to enjoy the bed to myself. I was still up early even then.

I was able to enjoy my beading this morning. I got another 4 rows done.


The third bird is really coming along. Now we can see the top of the head. I'm now at 345/446. It's relaxing.

Then it was time to go to the movies. We saw "Onward." It was really good. I even got emotional at the end. It's funny how an animated ...

Stitching After Going To A Movie from Quilting My Way

This morning we were sleeping in. I really didn't get moving till around 11 am. I got the laundry going.

I decided to sit and do some beading while Patrick watched his usual shows. I was able to get a row done before it was time to go to the movies. Phil asked for us to pick up something at the store, so we stopped there first. Then dropped off what we picked up. I gave Phil a hug and then we were on our way.

We watched "Call of the Wild" and it was good. I enjoyed it ...

Slow Start This Morning from Quilting My Way

I have been staying up till midnight. Which then gets me into 9 am before I want to get up. I need to get back to going to bed around 10:30 pm. Who knows, guess I'm going back to being a teenageer - don't I wish!!

I started working on my beading when I was finally ready to get moving. I did get some laundry in and then sat to work on my beading. We had a service man come to fix the fireplace downstairs. He arrived around 11 am which was odd because he wasn't due ...

Laundry, Beading, Movie And More Beading from Quilting My Way

This morning started out slowly. I wasn't really in the mood to do much. But I did start laundry - as it was well needed.

Then I sat and beaded for awhile. Got 2 rows done before heading to the movies. We went to see "Dr. Doolittle" and I really liked it. It reminded me a little of the one with Rex Harrison. I was really into it. They did it so well. At times I wondered how they could get some of the scenery done. It would be interesting to be behind a camera to see how things are ...

Sewing And A Movie from Quilting My Way

Okay, I know I posted earlier about retirement. I know I'm still working on it. If he knew I was posting about his retirement he would probably have a cow. Oh, well.

After he finally got up, he left for work. He was helping the new guy with the monthly reports. While he was gone, I went downstairs to work on a QOV quilt for a friends grandson. I really don't have a set plan, so I'm just sewing and going from there. A lot of the strips are the same color. I will work on getting ...

Reason #3 not to blog.... from Nestlings By Robin

GOOFING OFF!

Even with my deadlines, I have to throw 
the husband a bone now and again.
He starts to feel trapped being home
all the time when I am working.
I can just hibernate here in the house
for weeks (if the schedule allows)
and never leave because I am in my
own little quilty world!

The new movie, KNIVES OUT, is
one we both agreed to see so part of my
Saturday will be at the movies and 
out to eat... YAY!
I love dates with my man:)


What will you be doing this weekend?
Whatever it is ...

A Quiet Day Of Waiting from Quilting My Way

This morning we were up to a quiet house. Katt was off to work.

Patrick and I started watching Downton Abbey for the first time. Watching the first season. While I was watching it,  I worked on my beading.


I was able to get 3 beads sets on. I need my smaller needles to help me out. I ended up taking the tassel down from 3 to 2 bead zets.

After Katt came home, we went to the movies. It was the "Knife" movie. It was comical and I really enjoyed it. Then we when to Walmart to get Katt ...

Movie and Organizing from Quilting My Way

This morning we just relaxed. 


Then we went to the "Frozen 2" movie. I really liked it, but was disappointed with the music. The music in the background was louder than the song. So, I couldn't enjoy the song. I wanted to hear what the song was about but couldn't because the instruments were louder than the singer. I did enjoy the movie though. It wasn't quiet as good as the first one though. 

On the way home, we saw what Terry (one of the City Council members) was doing to one of the city buildings. 


He ...

Date Night from Quilting My Way

This morning we were both up before 8 am. Patrick was actually up about 45 mins before me. He was getting his new John Deer tractor today. They delivered at 8:30 am. I was really surprised they delivered that early in the morning. Patrick was thrilled to get his new tractor.

So, while Patrick was enjoying his new tractor and cleaning up the yard. I was trying to get QOV stuff done. We had to cancel today for a presentation. Got a hold of most of them. After getting all that done, I went downstairs and tried to get ...

Carrying it Over from Romany Quilting

This week I’ve decided to carry over my “roll of the dice” project, number 5, machine quilting my Christmas Mystery Quilt.  Somehow or other last week I pulled a muscle/strained my  side so couldn’t spend much time at the sewing machine.  Felt so sore I even resorted to a “nana nap” or two in the afternoons, and I always think I’m not nearly old enough to do this!  But the pain has eased a lot now when I move, although it hasn’t gone completely I’m sure I’ll be right very soon.

Now Go Make it from Terificreations's Weblog

With a little bit of time before a sales appointment my Sweetie and I stopped by a St. Vincent de Paul shop to look around leaving with four classic books including J. D. Salinger’s The Catcher in the Rye. It is a classic that I don’t remember reading, or didn’t read while in school, not… Continue reading Now Go Make it
