Celtic Charm - Finished!!!


I wouldn't have thought of this one!

We have hope!!!!! 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏


Ohhhhhhh what a beautiful 🌞 spring day out there!  Yes I'm feeling better and today surprised myself with an actual "walk" intead of a stroll and slightly further, feeling awesome!  Then as I'm ready to turn home I see Fools and Horses has a few people scattered on their patio?  So I stopped and asked, to my surprise they were offering door pickup of coffees as long as you had tap!  WELL THEY MADE MY DAY!!!!  🤗  See I've not had my favourite Chai Latte since February, so I promptly ordered not caring what it cost me!!!  OHHHHHH, sweet heaven, it was delicious!!!!!  Not as pretty as these as it was in a take out cup but I'm sure just as delicious tasting!

Another version!

OMGG I'm still feeling upbeat and even finished off these past two days this Celtic Charm wall hanging for MPQs Quilt Reflections Challenge Quilt Auction.  Not sure what will happen since the cancellation, but I'm hoping the fundraiser happens somehow, especially for the charitable organization.  I love this one but not really my fabrics! 😉

Today around 2:15pm while walking northbound on Osborne I was TOTALLY DRENCHED by a very INCONSIDERATE person driving a black larger sized half ton at speed limit or maybe even more!!!  I was passed by many vehicles and only got splashed below my knees which was minor!  THIS truck was too close to the curb in the deepest water when going past and the wave was solid and over my head, even into my glasses, blinding me to getting the licence plate or it would he HERE too!!!!!  Didn't slow down except to make the corner onto Broadway and speed away again! Well hopefully very soon someone will get you back worse than my being soaked through all layers!!!!

Then if that was not enough, this arrives!

I just received this message from my a friend. Yesterday I'd just done a scan and all was good!  Will do again.  BUT honestly everyone should not be accepting a new friend request from their ALREADY friends.  It's always been my habit to delete those plus any messages with just links and no info from my friend. Good practice to follow! 

Sheesh this is a pain and only wanting one to tie up one's Messenger etc.  I wish they'd get a normal job already ir just drop dead!!!! 

"Be careful: I got a message from you or it shown on your wall here.. Please tell all the contacts in your messenger list not to accept friendship request from Andrea Wilson. She is a hacker and has the system connected to your Facebook account. If one of your contacts accepts it, you will also be hacked, so make sure that all your friends know it. Thanks. Forwarded as received. Hold your finger down on the message. At the bottom in the middle it will say forward. Hit that then click on the names of those in your list and it will send to them THIS Is REAL"

Sewing Days

OMGG, Janice here is something like what I'm going to do with fabrics you brought me from Hawaii!  Not sure when but now an idea!  I love dolphins so am going to scour images to find one I love!

Wonder if it'll work for me?

OKAY here's my results of the past two days! The inside was free motion and not so good, still lots of FMQing practice needed!  BUT DANG, even if I have to toot my own horn, my walking foot quilting is near perfect!   😂😂😂

And thank you Brandy and Helen Maslowski for showing me the merits of Snag Magic, I sure used it lots on this project!  (I used to use a regular needle and threaded it each set of threads - DUH; then a quilter showed me the same needle with a different coloured long looped thread to catch my threads to pull through to hide - worked but sometimes I pulled the wrong thread out; doesn't happen with this baby!) 

Snag Magic, thread burying tool!

Now back to my ebook!  Tomorrow is quilting the borders, squaring, adding thd label and hanger, then the binding!

I just enjoyed my first time in Chatzy with Cynthia et al in the Beginning Tatting Class group.  Thank you, but next time I'll use my laptop, not tablet!  I also got over my fear of trying onion rings!  Need lots more practice with thicker thread too!  I had grabbed the first shutter I saw and had to be 30!!!!

Celtic Charm

March 24th

Ohhhh to find rocks and what a fun time for kids!!!!

Yeah finally it's captured! Remember to practice social distancing!

And naturally news releases are changing daily!

Another pasttime!

March 25th

Yesterday was a weird one that's for sure!  I seesawed from keeping busy to guess feeling down!  I did get some things accomplished though!  First off did the totally unusual and did some online purchases from P&D Original Design for this 4" Cat Bitty Block and others for paper pieceing and then another free eBook on double reverse applique - not sure about this one. 

Then I worked on modifying a Celtic design for my border free motion quilting and sandwiched my Celtic Charm hanger. 

One of my girlfriends asked if I'd done other Celtic designs and that took me down memory lane to 2008 MPQ workshop Pat and I attended.

Then I watched some news and got further into my anxiety!!!!!!!

Just followed up with my Dr's assistant and the nasal swab done recently came back negative for Covid-19.  She also stressed that the lab would have called me immediately!  One less stress in me now!  🙏🙏🙏

Cruise Update!

I totally agree!

Hot from my travel agent:

 "In response to elevated travel restrictions and government advisements, we have made the thoughtful decision to suspend operations through June 30, 2020. . . .

 The Globus family is now allowing all currently booked travellers between March 14 and June 30, 2020 to move travel dates easily and without incurring cancellation fees, land or airline penalties*.

 To make the transition easier, this Plan includes an additional bonus credit.  This bonus credit of up to $200 per person will be in addition to the Letter of Credit, redeemable for any future travel through 2022."

 So now I'm in discussions with Aruna of Around The World In 80 Ways to do such. 👍👍👍

Hmmmm, my past couple weeks of concern over our world, seems overnight to have obsessed into internal panic, which my BP does not need!  Even my trip postponement without penalty and two days of sewing has not helped, except for finishing off these 20 RCMP blocks, hopefully tomorrow's sewing will help!  Ohhh and today I did an online purchase, another angel to look forward to in the future!
