Please help support my daughter

My beautiful daughter is working hard co-coordinating a Canadian Cancer Society's Relay for Life Event on the campus of Simon Fraser University.   
As well as participating in the 12 hour relay and co-ordinating all the events she will be cutting off her beautiful hair. 
16" will be cut and donated to the Angel Hair for Kids 

If you are so inclined and would like to make a donation to this wonderful event, I know she would be truly thankful.  (and her team can beat the other teams on campus)

 Follow this  LINK to her personal donation page.
 (Canadian residence will receive a tax receipt)

Thank you for donating

One proud Momma

Behind again

I know when I am behind with blogging when my mother sends me an email telling me so. (Hi Mom)

However if you are on Instagram I am keeping up over there all the time.  Come look me up lalaslovleys.

What have I been up to:
finished this cute little rag rug

a quick embellishment of a tea towel 

pieced and pin basted these blocks together. I have also started FMQ this. 

choose fabrics from my stash for a new quilt project

On the home front:

  • attended an out of town hip hop convention with daughter #2
  • drove and watched many of her basketball games. They lost in semi-finals.  What a great season!
  • took a day trip to the mountains
  • attended a few National Lacrosse League games
  • welcomed daughter #1 home for a week for her Reading week. Loved having her home
  • baked, cooked, cleaned, laundry, shopped.... the usual
  • working out; increasing my time on the stationary bike and weights in my arms!
So needless to say I have been busy, just not always quilting.  The weather has been so cold and we are now heading into our snowiest month.  yuck

Have you been keeping busy?

Happy Stitching
