Blogathon, Canada

I can't believe fall is almost gone and snow anticipated tonight!  But with fall comes Blogathon, Canada and Flo from Buterfly Quilting here is the host for Saskatchewan.  Thanks so much Flo.  The event starts November 18 - 23 so be sure to check out all the bloggers.  I have taken most of the year off and this is a perfect opportunity to get back connected with the quilting world and my friends and followers.

I am just finishing up the final touches on my Christmas charity project of my doll (pixy girl), bed and storage chest.  I have had so much fun with this and she is collecting quite a wardrobe.  I found most of my patterns on the internet, some I paid for but that is okay because everything doesn't need to be free!  I am new to knitting and have learned so many new techniques that I feel brave enough to try something a bit bigger this winter.

In January I am having my second hip replacement and that will be a perfect time to start a new knitting project.  This is my right hip so I may not be able to cruise along sewing string blocks.  I know right now that one of my first outings will be to the knitting group at the library.  The building is easy access with good parking and they have a wheelchair for patron use.  I am making some sewing kits that I can sew on one of my vintage machines without destroying the house with cutting scraps.

I have one small quilted bag started that I am going to work on tonight once I sign off here.  I'll be back with some pictures.

Here are some recent shots of Pixygirl.  Have a great weekend everyone.
She is sooo cute!
