Saturday Sewing

This weekend I went to a sew day hosted by they are friends of mine and Karen does all of my quilting for the last year or so.

My goal that day was to get a baby quilt top done for a girlfriend that just had a baby girl Kira Jade.  To my surprise and amazement I got it all finished and handed it off to my quilter ;)

Yellow Brick Road

The fabric the I picked for this quilt was Minitures by Julie Henricks.  This is one of my fabric lines and I have awhole stash with a pattern to make.  When my girlfriend had told me it was a girl this was the line that I went to.  My stash is still fully intake (better get the quilt finished).

Today, I started cutting my fabric for the Mystery Quilt day on November 3 that they are hosting.  I am really excited about this to see what my quilt will turn out to be.

Till Next Time,

Hi all well it has been a very long time since I have blogged.  I am back and hopefully I will be able to at least do a blog a week...

In August I found a new job after being with my old one for 9 years.  It was scary but you know sometimes change is a good thing.  I am working for a Canadian pet company, in the finance department.

My little guy is in Kindergarten this year, he is growing up so fast.  I am the president of our school, just the preschool and kindergarten.  So that is keeping me pretty busy as well.

Well I am off to get to work and my son to his day home.

Til next time,

Growing up so fast

Well Well

Hi all,It has been a long time since I blogged or even looked at blogs so I am sorry for not view yours.

Since January, we have had a few more new calves and now we are just starting to calf, which I am excited about as that means spring is here.

It has been very busy around here that is for sure, not sure what we have been busy doing but the time sure is flying by.

February we celebrated my son's 5th birthday where we celebrated it at the local bowling alley with a few of his friends.  My son has been very busy around here wanting to help with everything which nice to have - which I need to take that time and appreciate this as I know that it will not last long once he is able to be outside helping his dad and papa.  I have been busy quilting trying clean up some odds and ends and starting some new projects which I am very excited about and hope to post soon.

At the end of February beginning of March we were at the Calgary Bulls Sale with two pens of Heifers for thier first every heifer sale.  We did not do to bad and will be back next year.  We just go home for a quick visit to Medicine Hat Bull Sale where we purchased another bull, I think that we still 1 or 2 more.  While there I went and visited my Grandparents whom will be celebrating their 65th Wedding anniversay on the 7th of April.  Can you belive that 65 years.

This week, I have come to realize that life is too short and people are not going to around forever, so I decided to try my hand at making my grandma's homemade buns.  This were the best ever, every weekend when i would go to the Hat, upon arrival I would have a bun and pickle sandwich (all homemade by grandma).  I have already mastered my grandma's pickle recipe, so natural the buns had to come next.  They turned out but not all the same size.  I guess with time I will get it down right, right?

Well have to run and get supper going so that I can go curling.

Till Next Time,

Happy New Year

Wow what a year  2012 has been for me...  This year I keep saying that things are going to be different, I hope and pray for this.

New Year's came and went with great friends and all that good stuff.

What are your resolutions for 2012?
  • I really want to find a pattern and finish my Red & White Quilt
  • Learn to hand quilt
  • Go to school and get a Bookkeeper/Payroll Certificate
  • De-clutter my office/scrapbook/sewing room
  • Live Laugh Love with Friends and Family
So Now on to 2012 - wow that even fills weird typing.  With ringing in  the new year we also started Calving 4 months early!!!  My hubby bought some cows at a sale at the beginning of this month.  They were in calf, not sure when they would be calving.  So Yesterday I was out doing the grain chores and long and behold we were having our first calf of the new year.  8 more to calve and the rest in April...Might have to have a mini branding in April for these big ones.

Our first Calf with her mom

My chore partner - sometimes he thinks that he can drive

Well that is all that there is to say today, or life is getting some normality back into it and School will be starting here shortly.  My son I think is looking forward to school and seeing his little friends again.
