Busy Week

I set a goal for myself and accomplished it! What a great feeling. Two Queen sized quilts left today and 5 wall hangings yesterday. I’ve been working on the bear paw quilt for a couple of weeks, the other queen was a panto job that I didn’t take pictures of and the wall hangings are gifts for the quilters bridesmaids (the wedding is this Saturday she brought me the quilts last Friday) They are quilted using the Star Swirl Panto.







I really enjoyed quilting the bears paw quilt, I wish I’d taken better pics though…




Devon Rd House

Its on the way to one of the lakes we fish at, very close to the US CAN border and no where near town. I wish now that I would have taken a peek inside so next time I probably will. I was going to but then I got this funny idea that maybe some hermit would jump out and yell at me.

The first few pics are of our shore lunch at Fowl Lake on the border of Ontario and MN.

The others are of our catch at Hurion Lake, my Northerns was 30″ and the bass we caught that day was unusually large 🙂

My Aunts Quilt


Now that I’m back to working full time I sure appreciate the weekend again. Though I always seem to think I’ll get more done than I ever accomplish.

I am almost finished the bears paw I had hoped to finish yesterday. I have about an hour left, I’m doing a free hand version of a pine bough and berries picture my customer brought me and its been slow going but I think its working out. Maybe I’ll get it finished tonight.

No fishing this weekend but we are getting ready to go on a fly in trip next month. I can hardly wait.


I’ll be sharing pictures of course. I’ve never been in a float plane before but I’ve always wanted to. I’m told that the fishing is amazing at these remote northern lakes and I can only imagine the scenery as well.

Here are a few more of our trip pics
