We are having quite the winter here and it's still fall! lol But I don't mind it at all as winter is my favourite season!
We were blessed last night to be able to enjoy a walk through the woods! Some of our cousins from my Dad's side of the family own a horse farm nearby and each year they host a candlelit walk along a 2 mile trail in the woods. At the end of the trail is an old sugar shack where our uncle used to make tons of maple syrup. They served hot chocolate and hot apple cider for us there alongside a beautiful bonfire!
It was a great night to appreciate God's beauty and have a little visit with family!
I'm a quilter, love everything about this great craft. I've been quilting since I was just a little girl, blessed to have both of my grandmothers influence and teaching to start me on my way. The first quilt that I remember working on was a Grandmother's Flower Garden. My maternal grandmother, Fanny, helped me get started, I was around 7 or 8 years old. I still have that work, never did finish the quilt though. My maternal grandmother, Dot, often had a quilt in the frame when I was a little girl. I spent many wonderful hours playing under that quilt frame, in my world of imagination. And I was so blessed as I grew a bit older to have her teach me the fine art of hand quilting. Today, I still love hand work, but also love the convenience of today's modern techniques.
I have been blessed beyond measure this past year to be able to open my own quilt shop, I've been dreaming of this for 20 years and finally decided now was the time to stop dreaming and start doing! I hope you'll follow along with me on the journey!
