Life is Wonderful and Busy

Well for those of you who have been following this journey, I say I am sorry. I have missed a couple of weeks. It has been a busy time for us. My daughter and I took a week for ourselves. The men looked after the children and we attended a couple of crafting conferences. With a 9 year old boy, a 2 year old girl, a 1 year old boy and a baby on the way, there will not be many times in the next few years that we can get away together. Gramps went and helped keep house so that dad could go to work. It all went very well. Meanwhile Lisa and I attended Crop and Create put on by Scrapbooks and Cards Magazine, here in Ottawa. Then we went to Toronto for a few days to attend the Craft and Hobby Association Creative Conference. Marjolaine Walker from Twelve Stones joined us and we had a great time.
The next day I was up to Petawawa to celebrate our youngest grandson’s first birthday. Then on Sunday we were off to Bath Ontario where we received out ministry licenses from the Independent Assemblies of God. We worked for many years and were very pleased to finally reach this goal.

As you can see I have been very busy but even with that I have still found time to craft. I have been knitting twisty scarves to sell at our senior’s center. I was not sure how I would like knitting these but I am enjoying it immensely. There are so many different yarns and colours to choose from and they are really very easy to make.

I also completed a quilt for my grandson’s birthday. It has dinosaur print cotton on the top, stripped ruffle on the edge and the back picks up the green in the pattern in flannel.

My daughter and I are making everything for his room out of the dinosaur decorated cloth. The room is going to look so cute when we are finished.

Join me again on Friday when I will have the eighth installment of my “Join Me on a Journey”.

Please comment and let me know what projects you have been working on.



  1. Awesome that you finished the quilt, it’s so cute! Did you sleep at all during the week-end? Congrats on the licensing!

    • Thank you for your kind comments. The weekend was really organized but still enjoyable. I am always happiest when I am creating or I am with my grandchildren and if I am creating for my grandchildren, then the whole world is wonderful.
