In my little corner of the world…

My hubby and I just got back from a walk through the local wooded off leash dog park.  I almost don’t want to mention how warm and beautiful it is here knowing that our fellow Canadians on the eastern side of the country aren’t enjoying the same weather.  It’s a balmy 12.5 degrees C here and last I heard it was minus 17 degrees C in Toronto.

Amish Block Party goes on a photoshoot!

We sure live in a beautiful part of the world.  A week ago today was Family Day in British Columbia, and we had an appointment with a dog trainer.  About 5 minutes from our home is a beautiful park with trails amongst mature forest.  It’s an off leash dog area and our trainer thought it would be a good place for training.

Firstly, I’m finished piecing these totally scrappy log cabin blocks.

My focus for the remainder of December and the beginning of January has been to manoeuvre around all the colds and sickness around me with the goal to staying healthy for hip surgery on January 19th.

The Hexie Bug Has Bitten

I’m not usually what is called a “late adopter” in the behavioural science arena, but there have been a few times where I’ve pondered, and pondered again, and resisted starting projects that everyone seems to be on the bandwagon of.  I’ve preferred to stay with my current projects, leaning towards scrappy quilting but enjoying a variety of styles and methods,
