Flower Garden Quilt !

I have been busy making flowers for my quilt ,my little fingers fly over material, I love having so much material on hand, I get to chose a different pattern for each flower.Its exciting!


As of today I have 90 flowers made,at the beginning I sewed a few together to see what it would look like, now I am just concentrating on making the flowers, wonder how many I need to make ?? does anyone out there know ????
If you do please drop me a line !!
Eventually I will have to sew them together for now I am content just making them.
Keeps my fingers busy ! (( I am so easy to keep happy))

A skidoo Ride in a Blizzard !!!


Many of you ladies probably never went on a skidoo ride in the country so I will take you for a spin .. you wont need much.... I had to wear 2 pairs of longjohns, 3 turtle neck shirts,2 pairs of woolen socks,ski pants, a skidoo jacket lined with a fleece jacket, fleece gloves with a pair of triple lined leather long mitts,a balaklava, a helmet that plugs into the machine to keep the face guard frost free,boots that are for minus 50 below weather, and I put hand pocket warmers in each mitt and brought along a spare set.
You will think these pictures are taken with black and white film .... I didn't it was a new digital camera, BUT remember now we went for a ride in a blizzard today !!
****************************At the end of this post are 3 short video's for you to see !!!

Ready set... waddle out to the machine......








The photo on the left is on the middle of Porcupine Lake those little cabins you see are ice fishing huts, as soon as the lake freezes over some people put the huts there and go ice fishing every weekend.That's a truck on the lake, the ice is about 3 to 4 feet deep!!!


This a picture of 2 people walking in a blizzard on the middle of a lake in jeans and jacket only carrying an ice oger... we could not believe our eyes!!!
