Found Mojo

It's been a crazy couple of months & the quilt hasn't been on my radar.  But I have managed to get the squares fused up to date & spent a few hours today sewing & listening to an audiobook.  Got to love multi-tasking.  It's been a great way to spend a mindless head cold day with only having to do the school runs...

Some freezing cold weather has brought us to make the effort to take a drive out to the snow.  It was only about a 45 minute drive inland.  We had snow flurries fall at home on Saturday but it never settles.  It was awesome taking the drive out & just stopping at a couple of random spots on the side of the road.  We spent a good 2 hours on the side of the road just playing.  So much fun.  So magical & pretty.  We parked by an old forestry road which hasn't been driven on in an age but the trees just were gorgeous.... (pic of me up there :-)  )  The boys got the hang of rolling snowballs after watching Stuart roll a few whoppers which ended up being a snowman family.  It was a good day.  Very good.

Finally we got some time to play in the snow.  It was just the funnest time ever!  Boys sure loved it.  Two hours on the side of the road was longer than I expected they would last.

Gifting Knitting

Another pair of mukluks this week for a birthday present later on in the week.  It's hard to think they are both the same, but all from one ball of yarn.  How fun huh?  I do love the rolling tops on them & the way they hide a bit of colour that is often quite different from the rolls.  Keeps them interesting.

On the weekend DJ, mum & I went to see this beautiful choir singing & dancing.  It was terrific.  

This is the show.  If you get to see it any time any where in the world, do check it out.

This is the choir group we had come our way.  Choir 79.  

I think the thing that I loved most was the children going through the audience before it started.  They came through the rows of people a couple in each row & introduced themselves, asked each person their name & said thank you for coming to each person.  What a beautiful thing to do.  At the end they were out & about the foyer where we all had to pass through.  Once again they were there, shaking hands & thanking us for coming.  

Gorgeous children that you just want to pop in the car & take home & love.

Both having fun & clowning around on the hay bale maze at the Berry Patch where we had lunch.
