Home again

Well, I'm back to the freezing cold Ontario winter.... Yeah!

Well, maybe not Yeah.... The weather in Cuba was fantastic the whole week, but that's pretty much all I can say about the trip that won't be major whining.... let me sum it up with the fact that the food was so bad, I lost 4 pounds (not necessarily a bad thing!) We had a good time overall, just a lot (I mean A LOT) of annoyances built into the trip.

Moving on, I'm working on the 4SQS quilt. This swap is monochromatic... and let me just say that it's really stretching the limit for me to only work with one colour!

I'm also still quilting the Moose quilt for Dave. I work on the 4SQS quilt for a while, then I quilt for a while.... slowly I'm making progress on both.

But I do have a new story:

MaterialGirl is in grade 12 this year and she decided to take a co-op at the hospital for her last semester (she has applied to the nursing program at the local college). Ummm.... maybe not.... turns out the girl faints at the sight of blood.... out cold.... on the floor type of fainting.....
Uh oh, maybe nursing isn't her calling after all..... The bright side is that she found this out before she invested her time and (our) money at college. Now she has to rethink what she's going to do in the fall because there's NO WAY she's going back to the hospital (her words, not mine).

Back to normal (well, as normal as it gets)

I finished quilting the Turning Twenty for Kate (Courtney's twin sister). I probably won't get the binding on until I come back from vacation, and then I'll post a picture of it finished.










And this is the result of my trip to Fabricland, I think it might have been an over reaction to working on Dave's 'Guy' quilt.... We're definately talking a Girly-Girl quilt here! (the cat paw belongs to MooMoo, Meagan's cat.... MooMoo likes to inspect all of the fabric and give it her approval....)








And the last shot is of Laura's friend Luke, having a little snooze with Belle! I might have to get Laura to post this on Facebook so all his friends can see it!

Winter Blahs....

I believe I'm suffering from a severe case of the Winter Blahs..... I haven't felt like working on anything lately. I finally sucked it up, though, and fixed Dave's quilt. Now ALL the blocks are right side up (what a concept!)

I also stopped at Fabricland yesterday and bought fabric for a new quilt.... It seems the 'Blahs' don't extend to shopping, LOL!!!!
