Making Kits

When I get a project in mind I like to make a kit up so that when I am ready to make it everything is organized and I don't have to start looking for fabric.  

This is for a table topper and placemats.
I picked up the pattern at the London International Quilt Show in June.

This kit is for a small quilt called "The Neighbourhood Quilt"
It has 44 charm squares so I am going to use up some from my stash.

Two more placemats to be made.

"The Yoga Girl Bag"
I started it tonight and just have to finish up
the binding on it.
It should be finished tomorrow.
Too tired to complete it tonight.

Summer Will Soon Be Over

I say that summer is almost over when today it is 30 C here in town, but it is only 2 weeks until school starts and things get back to a routine.  We thought summer was finished a few weeks ago when the temperature never got above 17 C.  So glad that we are having a few more warm days again.

We spent the last 4 days at the cabin doing a bit of work.  We always need firewood because of the precarious temperatures so we got a truck load and then had to unload it and stack it.

Almost empty.

Stacked, ready for the fall.

The garden up there is really growing and somethings are doing better than the garden at home.  We have ripe tomatoes at home but no beans or peas.  YKW picked peas last weekend and lots of beans and more peas this weekend from the garden at the cabin.

Yesterday we had time to pick blueberries.  Between the 2 of us we picked almost 4 litres over an hour and a half.  We had to drive about 16 km to a great blueberry patch and we were not disappointed.

This is my second 4 litre pail.  We picked another
one a few weeks ago when Lynda
was with us at the cabin.  
Lots of Blueberries for the winter.
