Quilting Up A Storm

I have been pretty busy over the last few weeks and this might have contributed to my lack of blogging. So the least I can do it share with you some of the things that have been keeping me busy:

1) A center piece for our table, with festive colours and birds wearing earmuffs

2) A quilt from (mostly) scraps left over from wedding crafting, the large backing pieces are new.

I need to take a totally finished picture as I put binding around the edges of the quilt and I actually quilted squares and rectangles throughout.

3) This quilt is finished, but here's a look at the piecing together stages:

I have one other piece to post about and then the final pictures of the two quilts, stay tuned!

Frisbee In Pictou County

Since the spring Greg and I have been playing frisbee in Pictou County, it started as pick up and over the summer there was an organized league. Once September rolled around and students went back to school it went back to a core group of about 12 playing pick up each week.

With the time change happened in early November this really made playing challenging as it started to get dark much, much earlier! This called for a change of location and with the new Pictou County Wellness Centre opening it was excellent timing.

So now we play in the Wellness Centre and last weekend we spent some time promoting the sport and our 'league' at the Health and Wellness Fair at the Wellness Centre:
