We are slowly recovering here in Calgary and surrounding area from the floods of 2013. It has been a long, ugly reminder of what Mother Nature can do...Through it all though, our community and from across the country, people have stepped up and helped in every way they can to make our city and outlying areas better and try to heal from the devastation. And for that...we applaud you and Thank-you!!
I recently spent a week at Olds College in Alberta learning another level of the Master Spinner program. I had several Aha! moments and am becoming a better spinner because of it. We had an amazing teacher who was patient, kind and so, so helpful. This chickie is extremely grateful for that!!
I am busy working away on several projects...
The summer days are lovely now. How is it where you are??
Here are a few pics...
|OLDS COLLEGE GARDENS|
The grounds and flowers around the college are just gorgeous. I will post a couple more pics in another post. The area above is such a peaceful place to just sit and enjoy the scenery.
|WILLOW WEAVE QUILT STRIPS|
This picture was taken after I had chain-stitched all of the strips together.
|WILLOW WEAVE BLOCKS READY TO BE SEWN TOGETHER|
I don't know how much time I will have this week to get this together. I still have a secret strip I want to insert and I need to prep that first....We'll see how far I get.
|NEW CUPBOARD FOR SPINNING ACCESSORIES|
Originally, I wanted a small buffet table I had seen on the Ikea website. I also saw this...but wasn't sure about it. So off we went to Ikea...and we saw both. I liked both...but there was a difference in price. The cupboard was more and the difference in the size and room vs the table was enough to justify the price and so...I know have a dust free home for a few of my "toys" for spinning. Don't you just love that antique cranberry color??
Wishing you all a wonderful week!
Thank-you for visiting.
