A little fun in the sun and then back to normal

Sorry I have been a little slack at my posts.
catch of the day ...
and supper :-)

 I have had a few days off and we went camping and fishing. The  fishing was great and fresh fish for supper was mmm  mmm good. I had even spied a set of eyes watching as we went back to the campsite.

I did a little quilting and got another quilt finished for Victoria's Quilts. They are all washed and ready to be added to the bunch we are quilting up to send off.

not sure what this pattern is called ,
 but I would call it spinning spools

It has warmed up and feel s like summer and tonight we are having a bit of a storm the first one since my last post.

with the extra moisture come changing leave
 and fungus on trees

The gardens will sure enjoy the fresh drink, I am hoping no hail with the storm.It has been nice to enjoy a few of the gardens goodies in some nice salads.

I have also started on a few blocks for a BOM from Periwinkle in Saskatoon. I am hoping to have them made by the end of August. It should be a nice quilt in taupe's  & grey's. 29 blocks in all. (pics coming soon)

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you all are enjoying your summer.
Stay in stitches

soggy weekend

Well here in the prairies it has been just wet .... real wet and not just here in good old Saskatchewan, it has carried over into Manitoba. With too much water flooding  happens, water over the roads and roads washing away.

 We left our campsite a littler early to head for home when we heard some reports of roads being closed.  With hubby being a retired highway guy we checked out the highway with in a few miles of our turn off. First we came across water crossing the grid road and then within a 10 km stretch there were 9 places that the water had or was still crossing the highway. A few hours later the road gave way to the rushing water near Imperial. We will give things a few days to settle and then see if we will be able to get back to the campsite. We do have friends still there enjoying Canada Day.
As far as I know in our area everyone is safe and dealing with the water issues. I hope and pray the communities dealing with this disaster from the heavy rains remain safe as well. There will be a lot of clean up and rebuilding a head of them, I am sure.
On  the bright side we have had a wonderful Canada Day with lots of sunshine to start to dry up a little bit of the moisture.
Happy Canada Day
