Life Happens.......

Sometimes when life happens, blogging does not, but here I am back in the saddle and sewing room, ready for fall. 

Not much quilting happened this summer but I have been knitting......a lot.
It is all Christmas knitting so this is the only thing I can show you. It is for a 5 year who doesn't read my blog so I am sure I am safe! LOL

The colour is true in this shot

My sewing room just became a dumping ground over the summer but last week I managed to dig it out and get to some projects that were in pieces

A really old UFO, Quilt Diva , she is now all fused and sandwiched and ready to quilt.

This loon is part of our Boreal forest guild project to be donated and hung in the children's section at our public library. This is not an original design but it is from another old UFO that I can't find a link to. The mottled camo looking fabric is the one provided for everyone to use a bit of in their projects. Best get on this as it is to hang in our show first, end of next month!

I picked this Homecoming kit up while travelling earlier this spring. I love it and want it to hang in our show also, but it may not happen until next year! 

I made a few slab blocks last year and a few more earlier this year, but seeing as it is Canada's 150th next year I was compelled to make some of these blocks I approaching a theme here??
It is a great way to use up some scraps.
The slab tutorial and the pattern are both from Cheryl Arkinson and Sunday Morning quilts.
I hope to be back on Friday with some completed projects!
