Yeah ! A finish :)


Canada's 150th!
Started in 2017 while I was still working full time, this Kat Tucker's free quilt-along on Facebook was a fabulous project. Each week Kat sent 3 PDFs, which included a biography of the Canadian Woman the block represented, full instructions and helpful colour hints. So many life events prevented me from getting this completed during the sesquicentennial (retirement, loss of both parents, 2 hospitalizations, downsizing then selling of home, moving into a retirement home). I chose to put it "to bed" with 90 blocks and am so happy with the final look and size of the quilt.

I've done some other sewing recently, lots of face masks which I failed to take  pics of :( and ...
I finally got my new sewing machine cover and under mat sewn up. Neither was a big job - just getting to them was the issue. Very happy with the red under mat as the old was (20+ years) was looking a wee bit tatty!
My niece asked for some more masks, and smallish place mats for the kid's desk as they will be eating at their desk once they go back to school.

Other than sewing, not too much exiting around here. Have been stuck inside since mid January. Not complaining as they are taking good car of us - no sickies in our residence!
