My Red Hexie Top is Finally Finished

I started this two years ago   I often left it in the bottom of a bin and worked on other things.  But since I had trouble getting out of bed, walking around and sitting at my sewing machine, I decided to finish this top.  I am very pleased with it. 



Last weekend was Easter.  William loves to colour eggs.  Here he is, hard at work.



Wishing everyone a very happy weekend.  Our weather is going to be cooperative and nice.

Bruce's Mills Maple Syrup Festival

We went to the Maple Syrup Festival today.  It was the last day of the festival, so it was today or never.   Luckily for us the weather was not too bad.  It was kind of cold in the morning, but the sun was shining and it became warm by lunch time.

William loved the wagon ride, the birds of prey and tasting the maple products. 

Here he is on the horse-drawn wagon,
 
 
The birds of prey fascinated him. He gently touched the owl.  He just loves animals of all kinds.
 
 
And of course the maple lollipop was his favourite.
 
 
 
 
I have not found my missing posts yet.  But maybe it won't matter too much.  I didn't post very often last year.  I was not well and neither was my camera or computer.  I will try to find the photos of the quilts I managed to finish last year.  It will be just for my own use.  I hope you will find them interesting too.

Oh, No!

I seem to have lost a whole year's worth of posts.  What happened?  I wanted to show you my finished red hexie top.  But I could not.  And when I tried to find it, I noticed that all my posts from last year are gone.  So here it is.  I am going to try again.

First Finish for 2017

I've been sick.  For two weeks.  They were the worst two weeks of my life.  But I have been feeling a bit better over the last few days.  And I was able to sew the binding onto my Shadow I Spy. 
I had it quilted by Janet Chisholm.  She actually finished it just before Christmas, but I was not able to do anything with it.  On the last Friday of the year I picked it up and took it home, intending to finish it before the end of the year.  But, like I said, I got sick.  A nasty flu.  But - better late than never.

 
William really loves this quilt.  It contains all of his favourite things.  From strawberries to fish.  He loves sitting on it and pointing to everything.
 
 


He also uses it as a play mat, driving his favourite trucks all over it. 

 
So this is officially my first finish of my 17 for 2017.  Now onto other projects.  I am linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts.
