These are pictures from my trip to Iqualit with my hubby. It was on May 8, 2011. They still had ice and snow. It was about minus 10 both days. It was a neat experience to see it.
This last picture is of a new church they are building in the shape of an igloo.
Happy quilting.

I had this already typed up with photos and we lost internet. Then my hubby decided to click on this page to see if internet was working and I lost the page. Had to upload the pictures again. Now have to wait for that the happen and then I will post this.
This pics are. Jenn and her Grandpa McNab. Jenn and her Dad dancing at the grad dance and Jenn, Dave and myself in her room before we went out for dinner.
Happy quilting,

Jenn's grad May 20, 2011

I am trying to upload 3 at a time. We will see if it works.
Took Jenn to dinner and then we went to her banquet dance. I will have to post this to see which picture I got.
So just the last one worked. There most be an album button. Will have to look for it next time.
This is Jenn with her brother, Chris. He will be 21 this summer. It seems like just yesterday they were little. Where does the time go.
Happy quilting,

Jenn's grad May 20, 2011

My daughter Jennifer graduated this year. Here is one of her grad pics that we took at home. In her bedroom, she loves books.
Hard to believe we will have no kids in the public school system next year and that she is 18 already.

This is a picture of the teachers sample for the art quilt class that I took awhile ago. Mine of course is still in the works. I don't have a darning foot for my machine at the moment and want to do some free motion quilting on the top so it is kind of on hold. I really have to get my husquvarna into the shop. I just can't the tension right on it. That machine has my darning foot and I've done alot of free motion with it but the little brother that I have doesn't have that foot. I think I already posted a pic of my top so far but I will check again when I post this message.
We started taking Christopher's bed apart now that he has moved out. Oh the garbage and junk under that bed. I'm not surprised but there sure was alot. We are going to us his old room as a t.v. /office
Well, guess I should have some breakfast and get some work done today.

This a guild members quilt from show and tell. Thought I would share it.
I just got back from Iqualit. Hubby went there to work and I tagged along on a standby ticket. It was really nice to go there and see that it is like that far north. Still snow and ice. Temp was about -10 or so. Very sunny most of the time. There was a small snow storm on the second day we were there. The roads had been quite muddy the first morning and then on the second morning everything was hard again on the ground and no mud. Prices were high for most things. 4 litres of milk 2% was $12.95
12 cans of brand name pop....$17.99 2 litres ice cream....$17.99.....Breakfast at the hotel was $35.00 for 2.
Dinner the second night most items on menu were $49.00 an entree. I had Artic Char, Dave had Caribou medallions. Both were very good. We did alot of walking. Very steep hill down into the town from where we were staying. All houses and buildings are built off the ground on stilts as the permafrost would stift the foundations. So no basements.
Did have internet service and satilite t.v.
