Inspiration Galore…

…was found yesterday at the Dufferin Piecemakers Quilting Guild ‘Magic of Cloth’ exhibit that my mother and I attended.    With over 300  beautiful items of every quilting variety featured I left with my head full of ideas and  dreams.


Here is the cute favour that was given to visitors upon entering.




No quilting today but I did make these two pillowcases using this pattern.  Christmas is fast approaching and it’s time to start stockpiling some gifts.



Have you started thinking about Christmas gifts?

Fall Splendour


Here’s a photo taken from the rear of our property looking back.   The purple and white asters looked amazing this year mixed with the goldenrod.  On the hillside across the road the leaves are showing off their Fall colours.  It’s Thanksgiving this weekend in Canada.  The weather in our region is unseasonably warm and the roads are packed with cars taking in the leaves, roadside markets, Fall Fairs, Church suppers and of course being thankful with family and friends.


Jake wanted to me to you his owwie.  Being a Jack Russell sometimes has it’s drawbacks, you may THINK you are bigger and tougher than ANYTHING  but your not.

Thankfully one thing you are IS fast on your feet and that is just what may have saved the rest of his nose from this guy…….
