We're still here, haven't hibernated or flown south. Yesterday we walked the road and the sun shone on the new fallen snow; it was beautiful. As you can see Mary has been busy. These knitted booties are for Kate. The booties are lined and will be so cozy on her feet when she visits.

Of course the sewing room is in full production mode as Mary has 3 shows she is submitting small quilts for.  One show is all about reflections. Can you see that in the quilt above?

Another project is for Alaska. Mary has been partnered with Jeanette and the theme is "My Backyard" Still lots of work needed before this is ready to submit.

Food is always a high priority around here and we are trying to lose weight. These homemade mini donuts made from coconut flour and eggs (no sugar) fit our new eating style perfectly.

Daily walks through the bush or across the lake keep us active and the muscles finely tuned.

Thanks for stopping by and keeping an eye on us.

  1. Mary your quilts are wonderful! And the little bootees for Kate are amazing!
    I have eliminated wheat and sugar from my diet and Gordon has cut back but not completely and I feel tons better and have lost a few pounds with a lot more to go. Where did you find the recipe for those donuts? I would love to make those.
