MAGNOLIA BLOOMS

Good morning friends.
I took this picture last night of my gorgeous Magnolia tree. 
I just love it when it blooms in the spring.
Thought I'd share it's beauty with all of you.
Have a great week.

A SAD DAY

We lost one of our beloved barn cats. He must have got hit on the road. We found him dead in the morning. He was a truly special cat and my husband Stan's favourite. Rest in Peace sweet one.
Here is a picture taken of him last summer.

A QUILT IN THE PARLIAMENT BUILDING

Good day friends. I just wanted to show you all a picture of a quilt that my boss pieced and I quilted for a Gala Auction. The highest bid went to our Conservative MP Bev Shipley. It now hangs in his office in Ottawa. Wow!!! I am so glad that I voted for him.
Sharing the picture of the quilt with you all. Canada will be 150 years old this year.

SUGAR BUSH

A great week here in Ontario. My husband and I went for a wonderful breakfast this week at a local Sugar Bush. We had pancakes with fresh maple syrup, ham, sausage, baked beans and home fries. Lots of fresh brewed coffee too. I love going every spring. We wouldn't miss it.
Hope you are all having a great week!

HOME MADE MUFFINS

I was up early this morning baking these delicious muffins. They are made using the delicious canned home made applesauce my sister in law sent us at Christmas.


FRIDAY BLESSINGS

Friday blessings to you my friends. A little milder here in Southern Ontario. Some days feel like spring. A thin blanket of snow is covering the ground this morning after a few flurries overnight. I am sure Spring is just around the corner. I have been busy doing some sewing and rug hooking and planning out what I will plant in my vegetable garden for this year.

Hope you all have a great weekend.
Blessings,

SHAKER SEWING BOX KITS

I finished up some more of my Olde Crow Shaker sewing box kits. I sell out of these shortly after they are in stock. They are made from wood, mustard over black, and lined on the bottom with black felt. Included is a pair of primitive scissors and a handmade pin cushion. I just love these. www.oldecrowprimitives.ca
