An Autumn Drive

After work yesterday the sun was out and I decided to go for a drive to see if I could find a good place to take some pictures of the Autumn colours which are beautiful at the moment. I didn't find a good spot for that but I did find this lookout spot over Lake Nipissing.

Book Club

Our book club met on Thursday and we read Banker to the Poor by Muhammad Yunnus who along with the Grameen Bank which he helped create won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2006. It was a very interesting book where he describes how he founded. We went to Danny's Pasta and hada delicious meal. Danny's is outside of town so we had a nice drive out as the colours are changing. The best picture of the colours that I got included the construction. Oh well they are only just turning and I am hoping to get more before all the leaves fall off.

Meeting My Cousins in Toronto!

I'm catching up on posts today. My cousins, Christine and David, were over from England for a visit and I managed to meet up with them in Toronto on Labour Day weekend. We had a really nice visit and it is always nice to see them. When they went back to England, they saw my parents who were over there. We did a harbourfront tour in Toronto which I had never done before. It was the Tuesday after Labour Day so we practically had the whole boat to ourselves.

Start of a new Quilt

I'm about to start a new quilt. I'm taking a class to make my first full size quilt!! It is a pattern called "Turning Twenty" (I don't actually have the pattern yet.) I went and choose my 20 fat quarters today. Got them home and laid them out only to find that I do have one duplicate - d'oh! I don't think that it will matter and can probably switch it on the first day of the class.

I'm so excited!

You may be thinking, why is she so excited by this crane? It's because they have started work on replacing the roof in our building! Yeah, no more leaky roof!!!!

Another project finished

Well, I finally got this quilt backed, quilted and finished. I am really happy with the way it turned out! I think the dark green border really highlights the fabric.

Saturday, September 1st

It was a beautiful day, so I decided to go for a walk. It wasn't the some picturesque, but it was with a good destination in mind. I went to the post office to pick up my package. It was some books that I had ordered. This was one of them. Now I need yarn! And I have to pick which pattern I am going to start with!
