Moose Stash Quilting

How clever of the Blog Hoppers to have listed all of the Blog Hop Projects on Pinterest for our viewing pleasure…Go HERE for a peak at what has been produced in the last two days!! Amazing projects for sure!! If you go to Madame Samm’s blog everyday and click on her side Red, White and Blue BLog Hop button you can see what’s been added! Very clever, don’t you think!! Ahhhh the marvels of the Internet!
SUNDAY’S CANADA DAY HAPPENINGS~
Yesterday was a busy day!! I got this far with my Roman Shades before I needed to go to Home Depot for supplies…ie..eye hooks, wood, ‘L’ brackets and ‘wall cleat thingy’(…hey don’t laugh..the guy at Home Depot knew EXACTLY what I meant!
I am LOVING the fabric!!
And it’s ALWAYS a bonus (and a surprise!) when the math works out!! I am hoping to get this baby up and working today…fingers are crossed (and so are my toes!)
Then after lunch we went for a long two hour hike up along Holland Creek…
Gorgeous views of the creek…and the trail was fairly level UNTIL…
..we discovered these steps with a sign that promised views of Ladysmith and the surrounding area…these steps were just the beginnings of an upward climb…What a workout!!
AND I guess these are the ‘views’ they promised! Oh well…the heart’s in good shape after that workout!
Rylie and Molly drink from every mud puddle and stagnate pool they can find (I’m sure they do it on purpose, just to hear our NO! NO!NOs!)…then when we give them crisp, clear mountain water, they turn their noses up at it!! Geeze…Dogs!
Then after dinner, I noticed this shrub…YIKES!! (It’s just a spreading juniper but I have been trimming it for the last 10 years. It either this or death!! It’s just too big!)
TIME for a hair-cut! So I got out my clippers!! EVERYONE runs when I get THESE out!!
THERE! Kind of like when the dogs come home from the Groomers! Give it a couple of weeks and it will look great!
They don’t call me Paulette Bunyan for nothin’…eh!
Have a Magical Monday and Happy Quilting!~P
