A little peek at what I am up too.

I am making this bag for myself:
 Love this fabric, Full Bloom from Northcott.  I bought it here, a lovely little store that ships as well.  Every Wednesday they have an online sale of 20% off specific items. Excellent customer service, and very helpful.  Loving the red cork I chose to go with it, can't wait to see it all done.

I finished my afghan squares and have decided to do the same again in a teal green colour, so the finished afghan will be a lot bigger.  I adore this mock cable pattern.
Heading to a sewing class on how to sew in different types of zippers.  Zippers are a weak point in my sewing, so every little bit helps!

Perfect weather for a funeral.........

The weather was damp, snowy, wet and just plain miserable on Monday when we had to go to a funeral.  Perfect weather for the occasion if you ask me.  

Although it was good to see a number of people who we hadn't seen in a long while, it's always sad to only meet up with people when someone has died.

It does make you think that you should get together more often and live life to the fullest.  In this case the deceased was only 62 years of age; taken way too soon.

Although it’s difficult today to see beyond the sorrow,
May looking back in memory help comfort you tomorrow.

What's exciting all those Spammers..........

It's my Homemade Laundry Detergent post from 2008.  You can read about it here.

Between me and you, I have no idea what excites them the most?  Do you?

Atrocious Weather

we are in the midst of a nasty snow/ice storm at the moment.  Not at all nice.  This is all ice pellets:
So I am going to hunker down again today (Sunday) and do some more knitting.  I have no idea how I am going to make this work as an afghan, will figure it out I guess when I get the rest of the squares knit.
If you are in Ontario, please stay safe.

Barbies, plants and SPAM

more Barbie clothes, 2 sets of each:

Got this lovely plant from Nora for my birthday:
I am up too my eyes with SPAM comments at the moment.  They are so annoying and so very pointless.
