Peaks 8 Recap – Into the Birches with Improv

  Could you ever get tired of seeing this view? I don’t think so either but as I still have a day job down in Geneva, I’ll have to be happy with getting a little holiday break a couple of times a year. Might as well get yourself a tall latté because this post has oodles […]

Peaks 7 Recap – Day 4 – The Last Day

Day Four, our last day at Peaks, dawned lovely and bright but it was a bit wet so there’d be no lunch on the terrace.  There was more working hard to finish “just one more project” before lunch.  So many lovely pieces were in progress as well as finished items We didn’t have to break […]

Peaks 7 Recap – Day 3 – Playing with Colour & other Toys

Day 3 developed differently for the two sessions of Peaks. On the schedule, we were to be doing the Playing with Colour workshop. I also try to be flexible. With the first session, it seemed that everyone wanted to push forward with their Swirls so we postponed the workshop to Sunday morning. The day produced plenty of advances […]

George's quilt - binding

Tribute to George

  This is George. My furry brother George would have been 19 today had he not died early last year. A sweet, energetic Terrier mix, he was the loving companion of my father for 17 years. He loved to catch frisbees, even winning a few contests.  He would get kerchiefs whenever he’d go to the groomers […]

The Blue Quilt – ALYoF March

Surprise for Baby – Finished

And so I’ve missed the linkup for February’s deadline but “Surprise for Baby” WAS finished on time. At least I can add it to my list as done. 🙂 For February, my goal was to finish a surprise quilt for a friend with a new baby. The quilt was being done by myself and another quilting friend, […]
