stitching along

Well it's been a busy week I have been stitching along .After working this week I did manage to get three quilt tops quilted and two are bound.I also was able to get a novel started( half done). The weather here has been very cold -35 and more with the wind chill most days , today it was -2 with next to nothing for wind. I have to decide which classes I would like to take at the Saskatchewan Stitches Conference this May-June in Muenster SK.It is put on by Haus of stitches in Humboult. Teachers come for all over to share their knowledge. I always have a good time there.Off to make supper.

more snow

 you should see the fresh blanket of snow out side. we have been having a good number of nice days out there and then bamm you get more snow. sure looks pretty but you no longer know where the ice is hiding. not as much as some other areas here in SK but enough . sure hope we do not have the same water troubles this spring
finished a toddler size quilt just the binding and a label to do, 2 small boarders to quilt on a lap size quilt. i fell that i am making some head way at getting past projects complete as well as a few new ones.  maybe one day i will only have one project going at a time ........... not maybe 2 or 3 just to keep it interesting.
i am trying to get over another cold and a sore shoulder so i will take it slow and look after the shoulder.
