Another One!!!!

Good Evening Internet Friends!

Another busy day so only time to assemble a Star Block this evening:


Now there are only a couple of more chores to do and then it's off to bed as one more day of work tomorrow ☺

Hope this inspires your own creativity....

Star Block

Good Evening Internet Friends!

Well, back to work today!

This evening I only had a bit of time to spend in my craft room, but I did manage to make another Star Block for the Star Block Challenge from A Needle Pulling Thread Quilt Shop {it's last year's challenge - I think I am on the remedial plan}:

Hope this inspires your own creativity...

Family Day

Good Evening Internet Friends!

I trust that everyone had a wonderful and relaxing family day.

At our house we sure did.  Slept late after watching movies until early this morning.  After breakfast I started on making bread:

While the bread was rising I worked on my Prairie Rose Block of the Month from Prairie Points Quilt Shop.  I was inspired to get back at this twice yesterday; first time was when Lynn posted about putting hers on the quilt frame, second was when a random lady posted hers as being complete!!!  Today I did the center portion of Block 7:

"Sew" far I have completed Blocks 1, 2, 3, and 4.  Really if I just did it I could get it finished.....

After baking the bread my son, the puppy and I headed out for a walk: 

I love the classic homes in our neighbourhood.  I really do love these old neighbourhoods.

Just before our walk my son asked if we could have pizza for dinner.  Sure!!!  Whole wheat pizza crust was set to rise while we were out on our walk:

My son did the toppings and as such there is a plethora of mushrooms and most of the block of fresh mozzarella is on there!  Yummy.......

Hope this inspires your own creativity...

Row By Row......

Good Evening Internet Friends!

Today I was finally feeling well enough to play in my craft room ☺ Of course I also did not leave the house ....

I finished the applique and assembly of my 2016 Row by Row from Bearly Square Quilting.  This is without a doubt my favorite of all the blocks I collected.  The theme for 2016 was "HOME" and nothing says "HOME" to me more than this block:

I LOVE this block.  I am even thinking that I should make another one and have it framed for my dining room ☺

As of this evening I now have 8 of my 22 blocks collected this summer while on vacation:


Blocks are Left to Right:
Edmonton, AB
Havre, MT

Top to Bottom:
Calgary, AB
Havre, MT (cause both shops had awesome blocks)
Fort St. John, BC (another one to do yet)
Moose Jaw, SK (another one to do yet)
Lethbridge, AB 
Swift Current, SK.

I love making these Summer Vacation Quilts!

Hope this inspires your own creativity...

Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day Internet Friends!

I hope you all had a special day and felt loved - as you should every day.

Attempted to go to work this morning but my physician colleagues wrote me a sick note to go home; a joke sort of, but mostly....GO HOME.

No crafting done today, seriously even knitting was too much effort.

I will show you though that my son and I made these from a Paper Pumpkin kit I found in the craft room on the weekend:

We had fun making and filling these with candy on Saturday afternoon and there was somehow enough candy for the bags (and what we ate) and 2 pieces of each left over after filling the bags! ☺

Hope this inspires your own creativity...

I'm Sick....

Good Evening Internet Friends!

Well, a night of coughing and sneezing and ear ache and sore throat did not make me better for today.

Cold sweats and face sore from sinuses by the time I got my son to school....time to go home.

Many cold remedies and medications later this evening I thought I would attempt my craft room.  I successfully made this:

I had actually put the small blocks together on the weekend so all I had to do tonight was three short seams and that was all I could do before crawling back into bed with my heating pad.


Hope your own creativity is not squelched tonight ...

Comfort Food....

Good Evening Internet Friends!

About a week ago a head cold moved in on me.  For the past few days it has been trying to over take me!  I awoke today with a headache, chills and so much nasal pressure my teeth hurt!

I always lose weight when I get sick (at least 5 lbs) so in preparation for that I decided I would at least eat comfort food today so that if this develops further I don't need to find my "after sick" pants.

Breakfast was French Toast with fruit because although it should have been Awful Waffle Sunday that just seemed like too much energy:


Lunch was pasta and cheese sauce - no not the kind from the box with processed cheese:

Again, YUM!

This afternoon I made a Banana cake with Cream Cheese Icing as my son and I were invited for Roast Beef Dinner at the neighbours:

Although I will not eat fresh bananas except under very green circumstances I do find baked banana things comforting and cream cheese icing is always a plus!

Now to find my heating pad and all the warm quilts I can and hopefully sleep this cold off for tomorrow.

Hope this inspires your own creativity...
