Oh Canada Quilt

File 2016-04-30, 12 16 26 PMOh this one is in the works since this morning. Thought after a day’s work at the store I have to be productive and work on my stash of fabric for a change. So here is the beginning of this

“OH CANADA”

After 2 1/2 hours of sewing the fabric pieces together I now have to get batting and the backing and quilt it too. But not today as it is nice I really should go work in my backyard a little…

So see you soon with the finished Quilt.

File 2016-04-30, 12 16 10 PMOh, dieses ist in den Werken seit heute Morgen. Dachte nach einem Tag Arbeit dass auch  ich etwas mehr produktiv sein könnte und an meinem Vorrat von Stoff etwas ändern könnte. Hier ist also der Beginn dieses “OH CANADA” lab Quilt.

So nach 2 1/2 Stunden Stoff zusammen nähen ist die Oberflähe fertig geworden …nun gehts los mit der Batting und dem Hintergrund und quilten. Aber nicht Heute! Da es schön ist draussen ist sollte ich doch auch noch etwas im Garten tun….Lach 

So bis bald mit der fertigen Decke dann….

Glistening In The Ice

IMG_6462For the past view days we had everything covered in Ice.

Trees, branches, bushes and yes cars too. Whatever was outside was covered in a layer of 1-2 inches of Ice.

 

It sure looks pretty, but lots of damage it can bring too.  Do I shake the ice off the cedars or not was the question at one time? Well one of my tree was not able to carry the weight and did fall over…File 2016-03-26, 10 56 27 AM

Today is a big melt and the sun is shining so bright. With the backyard door open a tad bit is really neat to hear all the sounds outside. Sound of rain though it is the ice melting, birds tweeting, Ice crashing from the trees and branches shifting back to the normal place. With a lot less weight on them.

The sun makes it all sparkle and glistening like in a fairytale world

File 2016-03-26, 11 07 41 AMIn den letzten Tagen hatten wir alles mit Eis bedeckt. Bäume, Äste, Sträucher und ja auch die Autos. Was draußen war, wurde in eine Schicht von 5-10cm Eis bedeckt.

Schön sieht es schon aus, aber viel Schaden bringt es auch. Soll” ich das Eis von den Zweigen schütteln oder nicht war die Frage auf einmal. Auch einer meiner Baum war nicht in der Lage, das Gewicht zu tragen und fiel auf den Boden…File 2016-03-26, 10 56 44 AM

Heute kommt die große Schmelzung, die Sonne scheint so hell und bring die Wärme das Eis zu schmelzen. Mit der Tür ein bisschen offen höre ich alle Arten von Gereusche. Mann Könnte meinen er Regnet,  schmelzen Ice , Vögel zwitschern, Eis kracht von den Bäumen und Ästen wieder auf eine Eis schichte die noch am Boden ist.

Die Sonne verzaubert alles im Funkeln und Glitzern wie in einer Märchenwelt

 

 

Thanksgiving Hike AT Boyne Valley Provincial Park

2015-01-12 Thanksgiving Monday hike Bruce Trail 077 Boyne Valley Provincial Park is part of the Bruce Trail.

Where I only have gone on two hikes with my Hubby. He and his friends have almost completed all of the Bruce Trail that goes all the way from Niagara, Ontario to Tobermory2015-01-12 Thanksgiving Monday hike Bruce Trail 151 a small community located at the northern tip of the Bruce Peninsula in the municipality of Northern Bruce Peninsula. It is 300 km northwest of Toronto.

So he has only two or three hikes that he needs to still walk and with it being so nice and warm on this past Thanksgiving Monday. The opportunity to go and hike the 15 km in this Boyne Valley was just perfect. Off I went on a perfect day together with my Hubby.

Just had to sit on top of one of these hay bales

Just had to sit on top of one of these hay bales with a little help from my Hubby as they are a bit high….and yes I am not a spring chicken anymore..lol

Remembering Grandma Quilt

Remembering Grandma Quilt

I started a class at my workplace “The Quilt Store”

“Remembering Grandma” well mine was the “Morning Star” but it did not go as planed so changes it to “Remembering Grandma” with opening up a view seems and making it work. Looks nice now too and I am happy this way too.

Dresden Plate Pillow...Love sewing them up soooo much fun, fast and easy

Dresden Plate Pillow…Love sewing them up soooo much fun, fast and easy

The Pillow  just needs some stuffing and two buttons and sewing it closed and voila. What a great idea to used up fabric I had stashed in my home…

I think I have a new favourite ” Dresden Plate” love this idea. I think I’ll work on the bag next and maybe the table runner….

Nine Patch Placemat

2014-10-18 15.09.57

My work has just received soooooo much more fabric last week!

Where will we put it all is always the question when it arrives.
And yes it is impossible not to buy some from time to time too.

So I decided to make 6 new Nine Patch Placemats in gold, silver and black . The front is all the same but the backing is as you can see, gold, black or with Christmas ornament print.

I also bought this gorgeous red, silver and white Holiday print fabric. I could not resit it…smiles

Now I have to decide if I make 6 more in the red, silver and white or I make a table runner with that fabric.

Red, Silver and white Holiday Print

Red, Silver and white Holiday Print

Bie meiner Arbeit hatten wir diese Woche tausende von Metern neuen Stoff erhalten.

Wo werden wir diesen Stoff wieder hinstellen…sooo viel kommt immer. Rollen und noch mehr Rollen von Stoff.
Und ja, es ist unmöglich dann nicht auch ab und zu auch einen Meter oder so zu kaufen.

Also beschloss ich 6 neue “Nine Patch Tischsets” in Gold, Silber und Schwarz zu nähen. Die vorterseite aind alle sechs gleiche. Doch die Hinterseite ist bei zweien gold,  zwei in schwarz und zwei mit Weihnachts Kugeln.

Dazu hatte kommte auch dieser sagenhafte schöne roter, silbernen und weißen Stoff mit Weihnachts Print nach Hause.

Jetzt muss ich mich nur entscheiden, ob ich 6 weitere Tischsets oder ein Tischläufer mit diesem Stoff nähen soll.

Lugano, Switzerland

Bars by the lake

Bars by the lake

Wow what a happening Place.

Music by the Lake. Then I clued in a big screen right by the Lake Ahhh I get it  “FIFA Soccer Night”.

FIFA is playing. Outdoor party time.

2014-06-26 20.23.55This city is a must see …..

I love the tropical feel one get when entering to the south of Switzerland.

Palm trees are a welcome sight. If you like watches and jewellery you better put your walled away. The Glitz, Glam  and sparkles are amazing and so are the prices.

Butcher shop

Butcher shop

You have to see the butcher shops…wow! I even seen a show maker …He was very happy to have me take a picture too.  My eyes opened up wide when I seen the spaghetti noodles at one meters long.

Walking by the waterfront, just perfect with all the hustle and bustle of the young and old walking or sitting by the waterfront.

I love all the small allies that lead from out Hotel to the Lake. So special to be able to show this to my son.

 

Lugano

Sailboat By the Pier

Sailboat By the Pier

Wow, was für ein “Happening Platz”.

Sonnig, warm und ja Musik. Zuerst dachte ich, es ist immer so. Musik beim See?  Dann sahen wir die großen Leinwand direkt am See Ahhh natürlich “FIFA Soccer Night” ist ja am laufen.

Diese Stadt muss man besuchen wenn man in der Schweiz ist.

Ich liebe die tropische Atmosphäre in der Süde-Schweiz. Palmen sind ein willkommener Anblick.

Wenn Du nach einer Uhr oder Schmuck suchst, das musst Du den Geldpeutel hervor nehme! Glitz, Glam  funkelt fast jeder Laden und so auch die Preise.

Yes this watch is a total of CHf 15100.00 I told you to leave the walled at home this is one of many...

Ja die Metzgereien, so viel Fleish das immer auch in den Fenstern hängt. Sogar ein Schuhmacher freute sich das ich ihn Fotographierte. Meine Augen öffnete breit, ein Meter lange Spaghetti Nudelns.

Am See spazieren zu gehen,einfach perfekt mit dem juble und trubel von Jung und Alt. Ich liebe all die kleinen “Gässlein”, die von unserem Hotel zum See führen. Und all das durfte ich meinem Sohn zeigen. Ihm hat es hier glauv=be ich am Besten Gefalle. So blieben wir noch etwas länger.
