WE'RE STILL HERE
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.
We are two retired Canadians living in an off grid passive solar home near Bancroft, Ontario. This is all new to us and we are surprised at how comfortable the house is regardless of the temperature outside. When not home we are usually travelling and exploring North America. We just bought a cargo trailer we plan to convert to a camper for our travels.
Mary loves to quilt and Art enjoys photography. We both enjoy camping, hiking, canoeing, travelling and cross-country skiing.
Come along with us and share our adventures as we experience life off the grid and down the road.
