Quilting Bee and The Great Zipper Pouch Swap

May 14, 2015

Quilting Bee member, Sherri, had THIS modern quilt for Show & Tell tonight. She called it Watermelon and even sewed in a few grey pieces for watermelon seeds. Delicious! Sherri always picks the loveliest, brightest colours for her quilts. She’s got great style. Tonight’s meeting was filled with quilty goodness and tonight was extra special […]

Bleeding hearts from the archives

May 13, 2015

It took me nearly three weeks, but I’m all caught up with all my photo edits. This is short lived because tomorrow I’m back to taking photos, so the line up for the edits starts all over again. I haven’t taken any photos in the last couple of days, so I dug in the archives […]

Dragons need…

May 12, 2015

Yesterday at the high school I visited I found this informative chart of what dragons NEED and what dragons could have. While I am no Mother of Dragons, I can see all of these things EXCEPT the hands. Really? Dragon hands? I need to google that. One second. I didn’t see anything that looked like […]

Scene change

May 11, 2015

I took the day off to work today so I could take photos at a local high school play. My buddy is a high school drama teacher and anytime she wants photos, I am THERE. I love those drama students. They all work very hard on these plays – like 7 or 8 months. The […]

Rice in the mail

May 10, 2015

Guess what my sister and I gave my mom for Mother’s Day? RICE. Bags and bags of rice. What? That’s what she wanted! My mom loves Trader Joe’s rice (the one with the herbs in it) and she had run out of stock. My sister noticed her inventory was low and asked me to get […]

An oldie time truck

May 9, 2015

Out in our travels today we accidentally found an outdoor festival in Delta after a mediocre breakfast (no names will be mentioned). We slept in this morning and IHOP is a zoo after about 9 am, so we tried something different today. That won’t happen again. Sheesh. Please note: having a mediocre Faturday breakfast experience […]

The Art Show is back!

May 7, 2015

All art is open to interpretation, but I think the theme is jellyfish, flowers and ponies. Maybe it’s an underwater theme? I’m not sure, but I approve. I’m hopeful that the little girls that live across the way from us will continue to make art shows for the neighbourhood. Due to the amount of rain […]

Throw Back Thursday – The Fancy Hat Club

May 7, 2015

My mom sent us some photos of us way back in the 1900’s this week. And both photos include excellent head coverings. Clearly, the man in the middle wins this competition. That’s a lot of buttons and shiny pins on his hat and jacket. I don’t remember having this photo taken, but I know we […]

And a fuzzy pea pod

May 6, 2015

Things I missed today: 1) The fuzzy pea pod (shown above). I was only looking at the flowers (I think they are Columbines) and didn’t even notice that hairy pod. 2) A huge hail storm. Apparently it happened at some point today, but I was either asleep on the train or at work when it […]

Sculpture face in pieces

May 5, 2015

Last Saturday we found some sculptures on the North Shore of Asian men, all in red, squatting in a circle. This was one of the men’s faces. I am at a complete loss for what to write about today. Worky work was worky. I ran a few errands, including send out Mother’s Day presents, but […]
