Now it's finally time to get on with my own chunkiness...these chunky bracelets are what I am going to be working on over the next while. I may decide to vary their composition, but they're definitely fun to make. I like the contrast of the different colours on the ivory backgrounds.

This is a quilt that is almost ready for a bed or to be made into a giant wall hanging. Mom loved making motifs from old ties and using them as focal points for her works. First she would take apart the ties by hand, launder them, press them and then incorporate them into one of her quilt themes. She had so many. She would watch the quilting programs daily and as soon as she finished watching, she'd make the swatch so she'd remember it...no tevo or vhs tapes for her.
And to think she only started quilting after she was 75!

We had to leave eventually, but I couldn't resist taking a picture of this tiny frame structure we saw from the highway on our way home. It was located somewhere between Whitemouth and Beausejour.
Back safely on "land"...well it's rock, but, I loved the somewhat primordial combination of rock, lichen and moss...again this was near the location of "the lodge" at White Lake.
