Flash Back to November



In a Flash is the only way that I can describe November!
It seems that I am unable to find the time to put together a proper post
and/or even get around to reading my favourite blogger's posts.
There have been a fair number of "dark cloud" days of late.

Has November been like that for you too, dear reader?

I had to look back at the pictures that were captured during this
past month to even remember what has all happened.
(not too many pictures were taken either - ugh)



November began with some
quilt piecing at the college where I used to work.
So great to see everyone again and to work
on this project which will be auctioned
at the annual M.C.C. Relief Sale
in May 2019.
The pattern is called "3 Dudes"
and the colours are bright and sunny!


















Speaking of "Dudes" ...
this little guy is growing by leaps and bounds
and is a happy, cuddly
7 month old!












It seems like Winter crept up on us so quickly this year.
Some of the outside work will just have to wait till Spring.
The garlic was quickly planted by punching holes into the partially frozen soil!
Hoping it will survive.




The remaining weeks that flew by,
included an office party,

Charcuterie Board at the party - so pretty and delicious!

and church Christmas banquet,

the annual local little Theatre play kept me busy searching Thrift Stores
for appropriate costumes, helping to set up and then tear down the stage and props,

completion of a baby quilt project for a special little fellow that
made his debut just a few days ago!

Northcott Mountain Wilderness Panel.
My first attempt at incorporating a panel into a baby quilt.
Matching fabric strips and pieced "flying geese" strips to go with the wilderness theme!
Quilted by Kathy Janzen, on her long arm machine, who made this quilt sing!


throw in the beginnings of a complete Condo renovation (more to come on this project),



and last but certainly not least,
celebrating the 35th birthday of a special Daughter/Momma to our beautiful grand children!

Can't believe she's 35!

Christmas is coming ...

The decorating is happening at a snail's pace this year.
Now how to make time slow down to this pace too?



Praying for peace and contentment as I intentionally prepare my heart
for the reason we have this season.

God bless you all as you prepare too!

Paw Patrol Love!


Till next time (whenever that may be) .... stay safe and feel the joy of Christmas coming.





Morning Light

  During these past months, I have never felt so disoriented or sad. Even tho so many dear ones are praying for us and giving us so much sup...
