Long time no blog

Happy Saturday.Hope all is well in everyone's world. I have not blogged in a long time and I am sorry about that but sometimes life just gets in the way. I have had a lot of changes in my life in the last month. First off I took a trip out to British Columbia, went to the island. I love the island, it will forever be home to me even though I am in Saskatchewan right now.
We visited the Parksville Beach festival with the Sandcastle competition. This years theme was fairy tales.
I have some pics to upload but they will be at the end of the blog. We also spent a couple days in Salmon Arm. I had never really spent much time there before but it is very beautiful and as always BC'ers are so friendly.

I also moved and started a new job. I am now living in Melville, SK and working at Melville Embroidery. We will be building a website soon but as of yet it is just opening and not online yet. So, many changes in the last month. Hope that they turn out to be good ones.
I have been diligently working on the Love Entwined marriage coverlet but for me it is slow going. A lot of little pieces to applique and of course I just get colors picked out and then change my mind lol.
I am hoping over the next couple of weeks to be adding new patterns to my Craftsy pattern shop and also,
I will be starting the work on my US quilt. I had a lovely lady who was going to do the pattern testing for me but as I mentioned earlier, sometimes life just does not go how we want it or plan it to.

This is a map showing this years visitors to the Parksville Sand Castle competition.
Lucious. He is such a darling grandson
My 2nd granddaughter. Aurora.
I am going to be making this quilt as soon as it gets closer to the cold weather and will post the files and progress as I go. It would be nice to have someone follow along with me. So if you are interested - stay tuned.
