Do you want to take a walk with me ?



It's good to be back and to write again on this blog. The past summer was very busy and not much was done on my quilting and stitching projects but a lot was done on the renovation front!!!!

This morning, I woke up to a beautiful sunny day. My wife and I decided to go out for a walk in the country. I took my camera with me so I could share a few photos with you. Do you want to come along ?

This is the end of summer and everything is so dry!!!! Farmers are harvesting dried sunflowers. Fields are brown. Only  the river banks are still green.







A new  year has just begun... It's like taking a new path... Where will it take me? I'll see....


The renovation is almost finished.... New windows, hardwood floors, beautiful oak staircase, a wood burning stove...  I'm happy with the result.


Even the toilets are nice now!


The booksehelves are still empty, though... All the books are on the bed of the guest bedroom!!! Wall and ceiling lights needs to be hung.... as well as the sliding doors which have nothing to do in front of the bookshelves... But soon everything will find its right place ;-)

For the curtains, I am waiting for the fabric to arrive...



 My wife and daughters are musicians and they start learning the piano. So a new instrument has find its way into our home. My wife has been playing the guitar for a very long time, my oldest daughter is a flutist and the youngest a clarinetist. Many instruments are played here every day... which suits me well as I love music but cannot play an instrument.


 My studio/ work office is completely finished... it was a priority as it is the place where I also prepare the classes for my students. On one side of this room is the desk with the computer (not photographed) and on the other side is my craft desk : my creative corner.




There are many projects I am working on  and I am very happy to work on them again. Here's a new one I LOVE : tent stitch on 40 count!!! Pure bliss ;-)


There are also many fabrics which are just waiting for me to turn them into quilt tops or quilted projects... 




... as well as quilt tops waiting to be handquilted...

So it is going to be a fun and creative year!! and if I don't know what to do next, I have books to inspire me ;-)


Until later,
