What's new?

My beaded juggling balls are up for auction! These fun balls are part of the Beading For a Cure project that I did last year. I am very proud of these balls - they feel really good in the hand and I think they would also be fun to have in a bowl on the coffee table - people would definitely pick them up and play with them! Check out the link.

In other news. I've been volunteering for the conference Towards 2020 Canada's commitment to children and youth. This has been a great opportunity for me to be involved with some wonderful people to create a conference that brings together people whose focus is on the future of our country from an important perspective. I am really looking forward to the day of the conference because the plan is to create a new future for our children that involves them and helps them to be the best people they can be. Here's a link and there are still spaces available!

I also sewed together a quilt. See, I have all this material and I wanted to actually enjoy it. So I pulled out the oranges and orange alikes, and I all the teal blues, blues and such and cut up the squares.

It's not finished - I want to back it with some flannel and no stuffing. So I cut the flannel but I didn't measure twice - arghhhh!!! I have more work to do!

Here are the pictures though, and more will be forthcoming when I finish it. Here's a hint, think spring green rickrack.

I will have some beading to show you in the next few days too. My darling husband will be back from Australia tonight! I wonder how jetlaged he'll be after a 2o odd hour flight!
Cheers, Denise

I am so glad I found your blog! Thanks for commenting on mine :)

I LOVE LOVE LOVE my cubes. They feel so awesome! And the randomness of the patterns is fascinating. I can't stop playing with them. Everytime I walk by them, I pick them up and give them a little toss up. My daughters think they are really nifty too.

I see you are from Ontario - I'm just across the lake in Lockport NY. pretty ironic eh?
