A Happy Father’s Day

Dad, I miss You

You gave me Direction in Life

You told me never to give up believing

Being my self and reach for the stars

You Loved us no mater what

You gave us a helping hand when we need it

Your Cared and Loved us

All your hard work from morning to night

For all of those times

and for so much more

“Thank You”

You are loved always

I know you keep and eye over us

from Heaven

“Your my Angle in Heaven”


 Dad
Du gibst  uns Richtung in unserem Leben,

Niemals aufzugeben und an Uns selber zu glauben

 Und greife nach den Sternen

Du liebst uns, egal was auch gescheht

Du gibst uns eine helfende Hand, wenn wir sie brauchen

Du gibs uns die  Fürsorge und Liebe

All die harte Arbeit von früh bis spät

Für all diese Zeiten

und für so viel mehr

Danken wir Dir

Ich weis Du schaust immer ueber uns

Du bist Mein

I subscribe to lots of knitting blogs. They’re a great way to get ideas, share information and stay in touch with trends in the knitting world.

Since I live in Canada, I have a special fondness for Canadian knitting blogs since they often blog on local issues that don’t always involve wool and needles.

Also, Canadian’s are known worldwide for being  a pretty funny bunch and most of the blogs below do have a large serving of that dry Canuck humor. In no  particular order of preference, I present to you my choice of 10 Great Canadian Knitting Blogs…

Florida In February

OMG hard to believe we left in this snow/ice storm on February 6th.

 

Has been already over a month ago that we where in Florida enjoying that sooooo beautiful sunshine every day by +24 to 28 and water at +16 . I was swimming in it every day on and on….just so perfect.

Sunset right by the beach every night…I am still looking for the star in that evening sky every night, my start always full of love and happy moments walking in the water looking for the shells. Even thought I could not bring home some of the coral that washed up on the shore…..nooo noooo you can’t do that!!

My fun moments taking pictures of birds flying by…or posing for me.

Smiles Yes  “I am a bigger kid then You thought I am” …smiles that is me. Always will be that way…That is my Life, my Love, my life of happiness.

More then I am That is me.

 

Sleeping on the balcony hearing the waves crushing onto the shore.

Seeing the stars and full moon.

Hearing the birds in the morning waking me up….My Dream always.

I’ll never forget that kind of feeling of Peace.

 

Fun Day Dyeing Yarn

2019-01-24 10.21.01-1So I had a order for 4 skeins in a very deep plum colour. To be exact, it had to be the same as the top 2 skeins. I  am very happy I was able to recreate the same colour and strength in the bottom 4 skeins as I have in the top 2.

Then decided to play around with 4 skeins of Fingering weight in a deep plum but much more with light to dark shades in same skeins. I am in love with this look and can’t wait to see them knit up.

 

 

Jelly Roll Rug

2019-01-15 10.42.24So colourful, it make s me happy just looking at all the fun colours.

This Jelly Roll Rug is made with only 20 strips so half of a full Jelly Roll.

Typically the Jelly Rolls have 42-45 strips of 2.5″ in a roll at about $52 to $59 per roll. Then you will need the batting that you can use either the already cut into strips at 2.5″or you cut your strips from the meter cut batting available in most quilting stores. I used Aurafil Thread for this and a Jeans 14 Needle.

Off to the sewing and yes picture-taking I go and after a full 7 hours this was finished. Measuring 83 cm x 46 cm

The pattern comes in oval, round and in rectangle too. My first one I sewed up was really just a practice one with using up bits and pieces of fabrics I had stashed.

This one I just opened up the roll and sewn together as it was in the roll.Love this Australian fabric.

Happy Sewing.

From My Heart To Yours

2018-11-06 11.42.14 - CopyOh no, how time has gone by since my last post.

I kind of got side tracked by posting on Facebook. How could I, you may ask? Well it seems to be much easier to do that with my phone.

Yes, I know I can do blog-posts on the phone too. But it seem to be a little more tedious for someone like me that is not so computer oriented. LOL 2018-11-20 15.36.43 - Copy

 

 

 

So we all had the Fall season come and go… see some of my pictures from the fall.

Well guess what, we had minus 17 on November 22nd. A brisk walk through the local park that morning and again at night, so beautiful.
