Change of Plans

Well, I had started to explain what my life has been like with the family this past 6 weeks but  there is going to be a change of plans, this is going to be the fun side of my time away.
There certainly was alot of hexies basted and I'm debating as to whether I should start thinking about a more concrete plan for a quilt of these or just perhaps let them multiply while we continue to travel.
I was able to stop at Hamels Quilt Shop in Chilliwack, BC when we headed back to Saskatchewan and I picked up some great Genziana wool thread and the price was so reasonable I went a little crazy or not!
I also needed some more Red Wool for the Buttermilk Basin BOM 2016 that I've started on and I found some real great pieces, now remember wool isn't cheap by any means but it does go along way...you don't toss any small pieces because it can always be used.

This is some lovely fabric I also  purchased at another quilt shop, Extraordinary Extras , I've spoke of this place before as they not only carry different quilt fabrics than what I see here at home but they also have a Gammil for quilters like me who prefer to have someone else machine quilt their quilt tops.  I finally was able to bring the only 2 tops I actually made in the past year for them to do and I just love how they turned out so when I put the binding on them I'll flaunt them on my blog.
I've heard so much about Stella Lights and was able to pick one up at a great price so have been using it in the evenings while doing my handwork.
This is our view on the Ferry when we returned home last Friday and it was the first time we've been at the front of the boat and able to see this view just before we docked, so much fun.
So I'm off to do a bit of quilting, I've missed that room so much and it beckons me.
