Its Like Christmas!

Hi everyone, I know its been an age since you've heard anything from me.

I apologize for this tardyness, but as you know a move has been underway and I'm thrilled to be now living in Duncan, B.C.

Its really like Christmas while unpacking at our new home. My new back yard and garden calls to me. But it has to wait till I have some room to move.

Its really quite lovely, but really needs lots of TLC. Next year for that.

We feel really lucky to have found a home that suited our needs and was a price that a normal person can afford on Vancouver Island. The high priced housing in Vancouver caused the government to impose a 15% foreign buyer tax just redirected those buyers to Victoria and the Saanich Peninsula.

So we suddenly found ourselves in an extreme search to find a good home, which we did and we love the laid back cultural quiet of Duncan.

No, my new sewing room is no bigger than I had back home in Quick. But I will get it all organized soon.

So some decisions are being made based on my new awareness of space needed to make large quilts. 

Our huge dining room and kitchen is in the works for a tasteful design wall that disappears when not needed.

Any tips you might know, let me know?

My Mexacali Sunset is going to make its way onto my new list of quilts to finish. I did spend some time thinking about a new border and have made up a design to get that done.

I started new quilt this year called "X Marks the Spot" which I decided to turn on point as I continue with this one. I love its wild statement.

But you know how things go, just when you are super busy an wedding and a funeral touched our lives this summer.

We lost our beloved Grandma just a few weeks ago too.

And since being so vigilant to get out to the pool at 7 am, I met a new friend Joyce.
