An Unusual Treat

I haven’t made a lot of progress on my Elizabeth quilt; I did cut out the setting triangles and hopefully will find the time and energy to work on them this week. Work really does take up a lot of my time and then there is life…

If you’ve been following my blog for any time you know that I have another passion, but I usually have to wait until June to indulge myself. This year has been different due to some very unseasonably high temperatures that cleared the ice off the lakes.

I worked some overtime on Saturday this weekend and then spent Sunday:


Fishing, here is my first catch of the season. (ok one of my goals for the year is to get over my fear of holding live fish!

It was a beautiful bright sunny day and time just flew by, but oh the fresh air and sunshine was wonderful and we did bring home a great catch. We know what we are having for supper tonight.

(note that I had programmed my new camera for this shot, I really love the blues and how they were captured, I thought the camera was still set for this next shot but the colour doesn’t reflect it)

I also love old buildings esp houses/homesteads, this was taken at the end of the day at the boat launch:

  2. Hi Darlene,
    Our fishing day really was wonderful and we really enjoyed supper tonight, its hard to beat fresh Walleye!
    my email is wendysquilting@shaw.ca I’ve tried to find out how to change that no reply setting but so far no luck. Any idea how to make the change?


  3. Your Elizabeth quilt is stunning. I can’t wait to see the finishing triangles. I have a problem with holding fish too! As soon as they wiggle, I can’t stand it.
