Catching up

well I am almost caught up. After being away for 4 days there really is lots of catching up to do. First of all my sister came for a visit from Ontario. With only 2 days notice of her arrival, she got to arrive to a messy and crazy house. She wanted to see my girls dance.

Off we went to Banff Friday night with my daughters for a weekend full of dancing. The girls did very well and we enjoyed watching them on stage. (all competitions are over for another year)

Due to the weekend activities we have postponed the celebration of Mother's day until this weekend. My husband did drive out to to Banff watch the girls and join us for breakfast, but unfortunately my nearly 18 year old son (scary thought)couldn't make it. So I look forward to next Sunday!

check this out:

May 1st Lakeside Quilters had their 10th anniversary quilt show in Chestermere. Check out Pastimes Online to see pictures of the quilt show. The first picture has me and my daughter in the picture!

Go to Valerie's website http://www.pastimesonline.ca/ for some great quilting products. (Canadian prices too). be sure to tell her I sent you!

These little stitcheries were for my mom for Mother's Day. They arrived only one day late. I would have had them done sooner but I couldn't work on them when she was visiting here. I really enjoyed making these and want to do some more stitchery projects. I hadn't embroidered since I was a young girl, but it all came back to me. My mom is an avid gardener so she will enjoy these! (maybe put then on your sunporch shelves, Mom)
well i am off to the hairsalon for some me time! I hope to do some sewing tomorrow. I reaaalllly need to start on my son's grad quilt..


  1. Glad to hear your daughters did well. Your stitcheries are amazing! Have fun with your Mother's Day!
