I have been following Judy Laquidara at “Patchwork Times”. She is doing a Medallion quilt as a 2013 mystery. I have decided that I am going to work along with her . It should be fun.
Two of my friends and I have decided to continue with our monthly goals. We did this most of last year. We decide on projects we want to get accomplished in the upcoming month and send each other a copy. At the end of the month or the beginning of the next month we update our goals and hopefully have the satisfaction of having completed those goals. For example, here are my goals for January:
- To work on UFOs on Fridays.
- No fabric buying until Quilter’s Nine Patch visit.
- Work on Double Wedding Ring quilt.
- Work on BoM Welcome to my Cabin.
There is another blog by Denise Russart, Just Quiltin, and she is having a challenge of completing knitting UFO’s. I am with her on that one too.
2013 is going to be a year of completions.
Want to join me? Leave a message and let me know.

Christmas is almost here so I thought I would share the decorations in my family room.

On Tuesday, August 28th I flew from London, ON to Gander, Newfoundland. My sister and her DH and son live in Botwood.
On Wednesday, 3 of us did a circular sightseeing route – we were also looking for craft and quilt shops.
We drove to Triton (160 kms north of Botwood) and it is on the coast. We saw some beautiful scenery.
We saw a house with the Lion Rampant and St Andrews Cross flags on it. They are both Scottish flags so we had to stop in to say hello even though we didn’t know them. They had a beautiful house right on the water and it also had a deck all the way around it. She painted the St Andrews cross on the picnic table as well as some little end tables that were in the garage.
We drove from there to Brighton by the Sea. Again we saw beautiful and rugged coast line of Newfoundland.
After this we found a pottery/craft shop. I bought a ceramic Christmas ball with the inside cut out of it and a lighthouse in it. I will take a picture and post it later. Here is an interesting picture inside the shop of a mop handle - it has a pink mop for hair and the 'arms' are bottle aps that are hammered on.

I have decided to share a little corner of my living room that I have dedicated to a primitive style. I really like primitive things. The treadle sewing machine is from DH's side of the family - 4 generations back. I also found some bobbins that were used for weaving at some antique stores in the States.
