Catchup - Nov 26th-29th

 Nov 26th

Okay I'm finally home, roads n weather were good, from unloading at Sylvia's apartment with Pat's help, both wearing masks, drop off at Audrey's too and home to unload a cooler of frozen food into my freezer. Once her's finnally arrives then I'll shift her food back to her, dang thing was to be there already, but delayed!!! Feet are up and Tylenol muscle n body to the rescue! AND those movers better not decide to load n go tomorrow!!!! Hopefully I'm home for awhile now! 😌

Nov 27th

So how are my friends going to this drive through parade in the city of Pembroke? Sometimes I don't understand locals going to none home events?


I hope I don't miss this virtual event! I've always enjoyed this no matter the weather with my friends!


Nov 28th

🤣🤣🤣 OHHHH Colleen this definitely sums it up! 🤣🤣🤣 PSST: maybe even more for the 24 days Advent Calendar?


Well Sylvia's movers are delayed, so today was relax time! But I was asked for 4 more masks so I sewed them up between movies. Tomorrow may be busy!


Nov 29th

Hmmmmm the unexpected setbacks etc for Sylvia's move is making me rethink my hope to move out of here! Yes the movers have changed ETA again. Maybe it's easier on MOI to just stay put and put up with the not so great here in an old apartment and downtown! 🤔😕

Busy Day!

Yeah it had to snow too last night so I started by shoveling, Sylvia baked me flaky cinnamon rolls as reward, then last minute packing of boxes before loading up the cooler and last minute items that would freeze.  


All packed right to the front seats, goodbyes to Florence/Roy and Eleanor and heading home!  Lots of unloading once back!  

Couldn't resist taking these pics from Kenora's downtown dock!

Catchup - Nov 25th

 Nov 21st

Very unusual sighting for me, I'm hardly up this early!


I totally enjoyed our Aurora ZOOM meeting today and glad to visit with Norma in Nanaimo too! I sure miss my in person quilting or stitching sessions with various groups and family! I'm still stitching on my hand applique block after delivering two more mask orders. Now just two more to go! Soon I'll get into more quilting UFOs too! 🤗

Nov 22nd

This is the kind of winter I prefer! 😉 Big fluffy flakes sauntering to the ground!



Nov 23rd

Interesting!


Nov 24th

Hey maybe I'd take up skating again without real skates!!!!!


Nov 25th

Oh my this has been quite a busy few days helping Sylvia with the last of the packing for her weekend move to Winnipeg. We got lots done, craft supplies to a Community Ctr, a number of large baskets for Dryden Sunset Quilters Auction items and a huge load of excess stuff off to the garbage dump! Talk about an experience! I've never seen so many huge Bald Eagles so close together! 





Then too boot, the mover came by to tag all furniture and 75% of the boxes packed. Then he shocked the @#$% out of both of us wanting to move the moving up to FRIDAY!!! I said no that's not possible! We got him to agree to Saturday morning load, deliver and unload at the apartment. He dropped off more boxes, I'll pack up what he suggested later tonight. Then I loaded up both our vehicles with bins etc with Mom Deer and her twins watching me a few minutes, as I'll be returning tomorrow and Sylvia hopefully will manage what's left with her daughter. She'll be so happy to get to her apartment and just stay put settling in! It's been trying with various aspects!

Back to Masks

 Nov 19th

Another two sets completed!


Nov 20th

Well this is the last of requested masks to date! One day I'll count these up and see where I'm at! I know some family and friends may still ask for replacements, but I think the new orders have slowed down for me, I'm also nearing the end of my sheeting and nose wires. Masks are so readily available in all styles, fabrics and designs!!! 



Today I delivered two sets and mailed off another two sets of masks. Hopefully two more sets tomorrow and a couple of other drop offs and then the two last sets on Sunday! You know I like this contactless, mailbox or doorstep drop offs, getting lots more accomplished in a smaller amount of time!

WOW!  Now what?  Oh yeah a glass of wine, feet up and another movie!!!!

Something Different

 Nov 18th

Yeah!!!!! Another NEED TO DO item is completed and just a couple hours before finishing I received a second request of another similar hanger! WOW WOW WOW!!!!

So this is an adaptation of the pattern "Through My Window" by Patch Works Studio which my original was Eagles Haven. I just LOVE anything Li'l Red Truck themed and bought way too much fabric! Glad my friends are helping me to use some of it up! 

Anyways, I tried to scale this down to the max size my girlfriend Karen wanted but goofed, guess I was tired and didn't triple check before sewing, so an inch longer - but she's still happy! So I'd checked out some images of windows with panes and came up with this one and proceeded to execute! I think it turned out spectacular, if I can say so! 

First layout not keen on!

Window template drafted up.

Fabric window cut out. 

Panes zig zagged and first inner border on. 

Closeup

The back, which actually is black with black thread!   Weird! 

VOILA, on my special hanger borrowed temporarily!  Finished size 14x21"

Eagles Haven     Finished size 20x23"

Next back to the masks and then the second hanger for her and maybe my own of the other fabric?????

Nov 19th

Guess it's back to masks again! These I've finished this morning and Rankin's and Janet's delivered too! Onto the rest this evening and hopefully all delivered Saturday!
