Oh S"crap"!

Good Evening Internet Friends!

Took a wee bit of time to sew in my craft room just for fun tonight!

Decided to try and make another Flock of Geese Block for the 52 Week Block Challenge from A Needle Pulling Thread Quilt Shop:

I love making these blocks because not only are they traditional quilt blocks but they allow me to use up my fabric scrap stash!  😊

Hope this inspires your own creativity...

Sock It Up!!!

Good Evening Internet Friends!

Back to work today at least for a few days....I will be back on vacation again shortly....😏

Very late yesterday evening, or early this morning dependent on how you look at it I finished my first sock from the Super Amazing Awesome Fingering Yarn Club that 4Paws Quilting & Knitting carries from Ancient Arts Fibre:

The sock turned out quite lovely but I cannot seem to get a decent photo of it to show off the cables and the lattice work in the pattern.  Trust me though.....the socks fit amazingly well.  😊

Hope this inspires your own creativity...

I'm in a Bit of a Jam...

Good Evening Internet Friends!

Seriously, I got myself into a wee bit of a jam today!  Literally, I used up one and a half gallons of strawberries today to make:
Seven and a bit jars of Strawberry Jam!  🍓🍓🍓

I think we shall be having toast with fresh strawberry jam for breakfast tomorrow.

On top of that I actually have something crafty to show you today.

I LOVE strawberries.  I really do.  Last spring my neighbour Sharon of 4Paws Quilting & Knitting brought in this very lightly scented Strawberry Fabric.  

Of course I had to have some of it.  I love the fabric because it is not only has strawberries but that the very light scent to it reminds me of my Strawberry Shortcake toy from when I was a child.  

The scent on this just makes me "HAPPY" and seriously we ALL need a bit of that these days.

I used the Strawberry Fabric, to make a Dish Towel from Dish Towels that 4Paws Quilting & Knitting stocks and their pattern along with the Strawberry fabric.

Putting the jam jars on top made the kitchen smell just a little more summery for a while this afternoon.

Hope this inspires your own creativity...

Saturday Drive....

Good Evening Internet Friends!

The weather outside was beautiful today so my son and I decided to road trip out to Stevens Strawberries.

The drive, the weather and the strawberries were perfect:

In about 15 minutes and 6' we had these two pails full of delicious and beautiful strawberries.  🍓🍓🍓

A bit of knitting after dinner and then watched a movie with my son.  

An all round awesome day.

Hope this inspires you to make a road trip of memories...

Good Evening Internet Friends!

I am on some kind of a Canadiana theme this week!  

Earlier in the week I made a pillowcase, yesterday the table runner and today I decided to make a quick Knitting Pouch with the scraps from the pillowcase kit!  

Love how this turned out.  Now I have to find me some kind of a knitting project to go along with this Knitting Pouch!  😸

Hope this inspires your own creativity...

Table Runner!!!

Good Late Evening Internet Friends!

This evening I worked on piecing a Table Runner that I just HAD to have because I LOVE the colours.  You likely know that I love these colours:


This is the Canadiana Table Runner Kit that I got at 4Paws Quilting & Knitting the other day.  

The finished size will be 16 x 55" and I love that I stretches across most of my table.  😺

Hope this insprires your own creativity...
