Finally feels like Spring around here, even smells like it .... Well last weekend I went to an awesome quilt retreat (3days) woohooo... the quilt pattern that was being taught was "Northern Neighbors" by Deb Tucker and our certified teacher Carla Alexiuk... Meet a lot of new quilters (to me) from various places including North Bay, Sault St Marie and more.. Carla has been several times to PA in the States for her courses and get certified for teaching her methods... WOW love the patterns and rulers, they make quilting so much more fun .. Got accurate points and all lolol... I also made from the rulers and pattern the Hunter Star runner and quilt (top needs to be quilted) made out of batiks :)... so much I want to do so little hours in a day.... Just thought I'd do a quick post and also add some pics..

Oh dear, spring is here but not really showing lolol..... hurry need somegood sunshine and warmer weather so I can get out there and do a little walking or something ... I have been bad :( need to spend more time here than on Crackbook (fb) I have posted more there than here.... First off I am doing a few things I wanted to put on a bucket list but never got around to... Learning how to play guitar.. wow not easy as way more to it than I thought lol I have been going to sessions for 1 year now and just getting comfy with myself in reading music and playing some chords and strumming patterns.. Should have a few songs to play by the campfire this summer.
Also taking photography classes, yes I had taken a few many years ago but was to comfortable just selecting my Auto mode on my dslr D40 ... hummm ugraded to Nikon D3200 and also got a few new lenses :) woohoo .... so much fun playing around with it... Yes, I did many many comparisons , the newer D3300 had a few more features but I don't think I would use much ex: Wifi and for the price and reviews my upgrade to the 3200 was what I needed and price was right on :)
And yes, I am still sewing lolol I have made a few little projects and posting a few of them... in April, I am going to a quilt weekend for class with Carla Alexiuk she is a certified teacher for Deb Tucker ... We will be doing the Northern Neighbours pattern ...woohoo looking forward to this
Well, guess I will sign off for now as I need to do a little cleaning and practice a little tune... here are a few more pics ... Enjoy
Oh, these were taken with my Ipad... next ones will do with my new camera ;)
Ok this one was taken with my D3200

Well, Fall is here already, not sure how I feel since we had maybe in total 1 week of summer lolol.... Rain Rain and more Rain, maybe should have built an Arc instead of Camp.... Let's hope next two seasons go by fast so we can have a great Spring and Summer (here to hoping and wishing)... Yes, I did a little sewing this last week, made 4 treat bags for grandkids who kinda misplaced 2 of the old ones I made :) no problem still have a good stash of Halloween fabric :) ..... now to finish quilting my Hunter Star Table runner (I used the Deb Tucker's ruler) oh how I love her rulers, think I am only missing a few, bought them back in spring @ our Quilt Guild Show...Oh I also made a quilt top using that ruler for a double size one :) now UFO til after Christmas , need to get other projects done for gifts ;) Well need to go clean up but I'll be back again next week..

I love fall colors, so beautiful, just finished sewing a quilt top Shhhhh can't post pic yet, it is a Christmas gift. Also this summer at camp, I brought my ken (more) to made get some quilting done, wow I surprised myself I started and finished another quilt top... have to check out these awesome rulers from Deb Tucker, think I've got most of them lolol, love new tools, this quilt top will be on the back burner til I get other goodies done for Christmas then have to share my son's room to quilt it on Gracie II . I'm in the process tonight or tomorrow in cutting and sewing some more trick or treat bags, daughter has only two I made years ago, and the twins claimed them lolol the two older ones would like one , but need to make them a little bit bigger they said to fill them up, omg to much junk.... So I've decided to wait a little on my gym, bad sciatica and trying new therapist this week and see how that goes, I'm back to eating clean , put on a few from summer and need to fit in my clothes ... well, here's a few pics to keep it interesting for a little...
