I’m not complaining but..

its hot outside! I know our little heat waves are nothing compared to what people live with in the south, but our houses are built to hold in the heat and I don’t have central air. Thankfully I have a little window unit that’s busily cooling off my room while I blog. The temps have been in the 30C range with lots of humidity. Tonight I was so thankful that my studio is in the basement, since I had to quilt all night anyways.
This week I’ve quilted two customer quilts and hopefully I’ll get one more loaded and started before the weekend.
here’s a glimpse of the two that are finished

This one says Canada to me, and how fitting with Canada Day next week.

and the pattern for this one is called Square Dance, I had so much fun quilting this one and had absolutely no tension issues, it quilted up so beautifully.


I am so impatiently waiting to get moving on my BOM from the Fat Quarter Shop.

This week has been especially busy, but I’m hoping to spend a little piecing time this weekend, even an hour would be good.

Last weekend we drove down to the states to pick up parcels at the border, and then we continued on to Grand Marais for a little supper at Sven and Ollies, I’ve always wanted to stop and take pictures of some of the buildings along the way, I love houses that must have some kind of a story even though I have no idea what they might be.

I love this picture

each day this week I’ve felt like it should be Friday, I really don’t want to wish my life away…..but I’m so ready for Friday!!

  1. I wonder what the quilts looked like that were made by the women in those houses.

    Beautiful quilting…love the Square Dance quilt too!



  2. I always wonder that myself, about who the original owners where and what their lives were like.
    Thank you so much for your comment about my quilting too 🙂
