Why quilt stores offer free classes?

A Quilt and some accessories!
And the other quilt store down the street. I have enough projects ... for a while anyways:)

It's coming! The grass has a green tinge to it, the trees have buds, the temperature is warming. It is supposed to rain the next few days. I am really hoping for some leaves to come out and flowers to start blooming!

When I was in Windsor over Easter Kirstie and I managed to get to some yarn stores. Here waas the yarn that I got - yarn shopping is fun! Now I have enough for several projects.

Book Club

I had my book club tonight. This is a very interesting book, I really recommend it. It is finally warm out today - it looks like we are in for a nice weekend, above normal temperatures.

Easter Table

This is the table set for Easter dinner from two weekends ago. (Don't look to close, I used regular cutlery not the good silver.) I realize that this is out of date but a week away leaves a lot of catching up to do.

The Edge of the Lake

There's not much ice left, but it melting and making some great noises as the water moves.

Pictures from the Lake - the storm

There was some really interesting light, so I got out to take some pictures. I then got caught up in the storm - see the picture from the other day!
Some dark clouds!

And the storm moves on...

.... back to blue sky!

Trip to Windsor

I will post the pictures I took of the lake tomorrow. I thought that I would show you how dirty my car got on the way down - actually this is only half way down. It was much dirtier by the time I got to Windsor. Below is a random shot of the road. It was an okay drive, some snow and lots of stuff being thrown up on the windshield. I had to buy more washer fluid.

More snow!

This is what I woke up to this morning - not nearly as bad as I was expecting! The forecast was for 2-5 cm, but we only got a dusting. It flurried on and off all day, but nothing stayed and most of what was on the ground melted.
This is the picture that I took yesterday. I was on my way to see "Away from Her" a new movie by Sarah Polley, who came up to visit and did a Q&A after the movie. I stopped by the waterfront and took some cool shots of the lake and the remaining ice on the lake. I'll post them over the weekend.
