I am still alive!

It has almost been a month since I last posted!  I keep putting it on my to-do list and not getting around to it – it has been incredibly busy around here…

We went camping with friends one weekend.  The dog and I did a little kayaking…

My granddaughter had her 10th birthday!  We played silly games…

A second round of hexies on one of my flowers, two tessellating cat blocks for my Paper Piecing swap partner, two hexie flowers for my Inchy Hexagon Flower Swap partner and a woven block for my Canadians Quilt partner…

And… it is my month in the Canadians Quilt swap so I had to make a sample block.  I have asked for a Union Jack block, using this free pattern on Craftsy by Tracy Jay Quilts.  I got my inspiration for using colourful fabric from Postcards from Panama blog.

That is all I have to report.  It is fall here.  There is snow on the mountains – see my new header photo.  I am super busy at work, but we are off on a camping adventure this weekend with a friend who is visiting, I have a quilt retreat coming up in three weeks and then DD # 2 and her hubby and daughter come for a visit in a month from now.  Lots of fun to look forward to!
