Dec. 13 – or Where is this month going?

This month has been a whirlwind of activity – as usual. I feel like I live my life from one deadline to the next, and I know I’m not alone here. Don’t get me wrong – I’m not complaining. Having nothing to do would be the worst thing that I could possibly imagine, but somehow a compromise between ends of the spectrum sounds like a good idea. I’m not sure I’ll ever get there.

Here’s a glimpse of my month so far. The first shot shows the elves the first time they made coffee with me. They’re very helpful, and they’re not fussy about how their coffee turns out.

Next my daughter, Devon, came for a quick visit. Whatever time I get to spend with my family is a good time. We made a day trip to Lethbridge to visit my parents – and Felix. It was an excellent day.

I was impressed with the Christmas veggie display at the grocery store. It’s great to see people infusing the Christmas spirit into the produce department! My fibre group, Contextural, had their December meeting/pot luck at my house. I stitched together a new tablecloth to celebrate the evening. We have some very talented members and the food was delicious!

Last Saturday was a workday for our Calgary chapter of Days for Girls. It’s always fun working with the enthusiastic volunteers supporting a very worthy cause.

My activity report wouldn’t be complete without a photo of my assistant/companion, Kush. Sometimes she actually lets me work by sleeping next to where I’m working. Not like now – as I type across her body.

Lastly I’m including some pics of my favorite Christmas decorations. I have a number of large glass vases filled with beautiful ornaments, so I’m showing some close up views as well. In case I don’t get back to my blog before the 25, I’d like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas!

I’ve chosen these photos in response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Today Was a Good Day.” Today is the first day after the summer residency program which I participated in. I must admit, I’m feeling a little lost. But here’s what a great day would have been over the last 3 months.

You can see a print table set up for work, samples of quilt fabrics and various table linens all printed. On a good day I would leave school early enough to catch the sunset, and be greeted by my lovable Kush the cat.

In truth I have included far more than anyone could possibly accomplish in one day, but wouldn’t it be fantastic if it could be done?

Serenity Supreme

I’ve been accused of posting too many photos of my cat on Instagram. It’s tough not too – she’s that cute! So for this week’s challenge I’ve focused on Kush the cat photos that exemplify serenity. This should calm my cat posting urge for a few days at least.

This is my response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Serenity.”

What happened to October?

I swear it was only a few minutes ago that I posted – could it really have been Oct. 3? My my my. What a busy blogger I’ve been, just not blogging. Sorry but you all know how that works!

I am stealing a few minutes in the airport to get this post done. I’m off to Art Quilt Tahoe for what promises to be a fantastic course with Jane Dunnewold. The class is called “Improvisational Design for Digital Printing”. If that doesn’t sound fabulous, I don’t know what does! In case you don’t believe me, I’ll post about the workshop and conference at the end of the week – promise.

Here are a few shots to show you what I’ve been up to, in case you don’t follow me on Instagram or Facebook. If you already do, I apologize for the repetition.Kush in a basket shields for DFG printed tea towel printed items Kush watching me in the studioDrat – wanted to put some explanations in for the photos, but I’m out of time. Apparently my flight won’t wait for me! So welcome back and thanks for sticking with me.
