Peaks 11 Recap – Twist and Shout Log Cabin

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]     Patchwork in the Peaks 11 certainly had some Twist & Shout, in a variety of ways. The first weekend of Peaks started like this. While we do know that there can be variable weather in the mountains, this is not what we normally expect at a Spring Peaks. 🙂       […]

Peaks 7 Recap – Day 4 – The Last Day

The Last Day
[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Day Four, our last day at Peaks, dawned lovely and bright but it was a bit wet so there’d be no lunch on the terrace.  There was more working hard to finish “just one more project” before lunch.  So many lovely pieces were in progress as well as finished items

Grab yourself a tall latte because it’s going to take some time to go through these pictures. 🙂 There were some challenges and some “whip-it-up-quick-like” and everything in between.  We returned to Chalet 4 Vents for a second time and with a little tweaking, […]

Blur (otherwise known as June) & 3 Qtr FAL

New York Beauty Simplified, Linda Hahn

I have no idea where June went. We had three family birthdays, three friend birthdays, two birthday parties, one attempt at a swimming afternoon,  a graduation, a homecoming, and 4 nights of quilting. Yep, sounds like June. Somewhere in there I was supposed to write a  blogpost about what I managed to finish of my 2nd […]
