I ❤️

The past three days have been fabulous.  Today I did a lot of fun things.  Simple meditative projects that help me reset.

I baked these GF lemon melt-aways. 

Puffy Hearts!  Making these to brighten up my window:)

My vintage bead collection.  You can find a few treasures once in awhile.

Started this jigsaw puzzle.  Does anyone else like a good puzzle?


Stitch markers from vintage jewelry.  I’ve been collecting these bobbles for ages.  

Woman’s march and Maud

I had a large day today.  Woman’s march in Halifax and I visited The Art Gallery of NS.  I’ve always admired Maud Lewis and it was a perfect day to learn a little more about her art and life.  

The Halifax rally was a great experience with amazing speakers like El Jones and Rebecca Thomas. Both accomplished poets with inspiring words that brought me to tears.  

After the rally I took a tour through the gallery…

I remember this house when I was a child driving through Marshaltown, NS.  I’ve always been fascinated by her life.  So simple a life but she made such an impact.  She shone through her work.  I have prints of her work around but seeing it in person you can see the true colour and brightness.  Her voice is evident, she painted her grim world beautiful.  She makes me feel we all have that ability to create hope and spread it around.  My own attempts at formal “Art” has helped me learn the amount of energy that can go into something creative.  You can feel it when you see it, the energy remains forever in that piece.  Even when I create a knitted piece I feel the energy in it.  

I stopped by Argyle Fine Art also and the PreShrunk show is happening.  These little felted pieces caught my eye.

Love these crows…

I actually stepped aside to avoid falling into this well…haha…so real…

Puzzle Pieces

Making a quilt is like putting together a puzzle, there’s a lot of math involved.  I received these quilt squares as a gift and now I’m piecing them together.  

After a few hiccups with my machines tension, I found the balance and machine sewed the pieces together.  I worked until I ran out of thread.  My plan is to hand quilt once the top is finished.  Wish me luck!
