Almost November?!

I can't believe that October is coming to an end, where did it go?

A and I have completed our last quilting class and just have the binding left to hand sew. I am thinking a wee movie marathon is in order to finish that up, maybe some Sex and the City. I have also been scrambling to finish my LONG overdue house painting projects before it is too cold to open the windows. The living room is next on the list. Yikes!

The fantastic Kijiji scavengers A+G found a drafting table for me that came with a cutting mat on top, HUGE one and a lamp for $50, I thought it was a steal, the cutting mat alone would be more. So, my studio is coming together. I think another bulletin board and some book organizing will finish the job and then some pics will be posted!

Retirees





We had a lot of fun together, but in an effort to declutter and detach from stuff, I have retired 3 pairs of shoes that served me well, but are ready for a rest.

Good bye fun shoes!

Fall in Review: Wedded Bliss


Before


After

One month ago I had the absolute pleasure of participating in the wedding of two of my very favourite people A+G. It was an incredible location and day. I think that this is the first wedding that I have attended (and I have been to A LOT of weddings) where I really understood the significance of the ceremony. There is something very brave and special in the act of declaring your love, with absolute sincerity, in front of all of the important people in your life. It was truly an inspiration!

Congratulations my friends :)

Fall in Review: Quilt Lessons

A + I signed up for a beginner quilting class and have been having a great time. It is a small crib size blanket and we both completed the top this week. We'll be basting in class this week!


The first 3 blocks.


Finished top on an angle.

I will some photos of A's as well. Just like at design school, it is amazing to see the really different results when a group of people complete the same project.

Finished quilt with matching pillows to come soon!

Horriblogger Updates... Finally

Forgive me readers, it has been two months since my last post.

The last 2 months have been action packed with lots of change, ups and downs, excitement, crafting, and so much more. I may have to break it down into a few posts, but I am back, with a new do to boot!
