The Spice of Life

I love spending my days working on lots of different things.
This week, I started designing a quilt for fall.
Here's a sneak peek.
And, since we're celebrating Canada's 144th birthday
 this July 1st,
I made a couple of these,
thanks to my friend Kimberly's bunting tutorial on May 27th.
I also made some of these.
And just a few of these,
(my primitive version of the Maple Leaf,
found on Canada's flag).
I made them by sewing and stuffing the muslin shapes,
then painting them red.
When dry, I sanded the leaves, painted them
with coffee and cinnamon,
and tied them onto old bobbins with a bit of twine.
They'll be for sale at Country Lane Antiques in Fort Langley,
the birthplace of British Columbia, Canada,
about 30 minutes from where I live.
And finally, I made these "tipsy pots"!
Aren't they cool?
You can find directions here.
Enjoy your summer!

My Martingale Book Haul

Some of you were wondering which book I chose after my Martingale tour.
Well, it wasn't just one book--I chose 17 books!
I couldn't decide on just one--they're all wonderful.
So here they are.

 This one is for my "someday" dream file.
Should keep me busy for awhile, don't you think?
Now I just have to decide which one to make first!
